Magic Dyeing

24 hours after the first class had their tie dyeing experience my bath is full of little sheep's droppings of promise.

Ooooh, tiny glimpses of colour emerge out of the murk!

Full of eastern promise. Ironing tonight. Can't wait!

This is a great way to dye with kids (from Magic Dyeing Made Easy by Helen Deighan). No matter how limited their manual dexterity they cannot do it 'wrong'. Whatever crumples or folds they manage all result in beautiful and individual patterns.

Projects where you cannot go wrong are always good confidence builders, for them and for me!
