Tie-Dye Workshop

@ Build Coffee

6100 S Blackstone Ave, Chicago, IL 60637

Opening Sunday, October 27th, from 4PM - 6PM

Come tie-dye with us! This hands-on workshop will be led by current Build Coffee artist-in-residence Claire Zurkowski of Lattice Textile Studio.

Together, we’ll learn the basic techniques of tying, dying, and fabric design. We’ll first create swatches to try different techniques, then everyone will have the chance to dye a t-shirt implementing what we’ve learned.

Claire will provide dye and one t-shirt per person. Please feel free to bring old clothing to dye as well! Fabrics must be made of natural fibers (cotton, rayon, hemp, linen, silk, etc.)—no wool, polyester, nylon, acetate.

$10 suggested to cover materials. All ticket sales go directly to the artist. Pay what you can; no one will be turned away due to lack of funds!
