Ice Dyeing

Looking for a way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank? Ice Dyeing is a low stress way to add a unique, colorful touch to your pre-loved or ready-to-be-loved pieces. In this two hour workshop you’ll learn the basics of dyeing with powdered dye and ice, including how to prep your fabric and workspace, set up your ice dye and how to make the most out of your Tulip Dye Pack!

A sister to Tie Dye, Ice Dyeing creates washed out blots of color that mix and blend with the melting of the ice, creating unique styles and patterns – no two pieces will turn out exactly alike!

In this CraftJam, you will learn:

  • How to prep your fabric for dyeing.
  • How to set up your workspace.
  • How to apply your ice and powdered dye.
  • How to rinse and prep your piece for washing.
  • How to troubleshoot and re-dye as necessary.

You can grab a t-shirt from your own collection (natural fibers like cotton and linen work best) or use the bandana and/or socks provided in the kit. The kit includes enough supplies to do two rounds of dyeing (up to 4 projects).

Completely new to this craft? Not to worry, this is the right workshop for you! Learn the foundational skills needed to get started and to complete a beautiful, modern craft project in an hour and a half. Expect to learn the very basics – from materials, to set up, to starting your project – before moving on to work on your final project.
