Class 6 have been creative with Tie-Dye

Mr Doyle


Mixing the dye

During the art lessons, Class 6 have been looking at work produced by Artist William Morris and discussing the many patterns that he has created through ‘Mother Nature’.

The children enjoyed experimenting with blackberry juice and seeing how it can be used to stain plain materials. The children then used cold water dyes to produce their own ‘Tie-Dye’ patterns.

I really enjoyed mixing the material into the colourful dye, it was fun. – Finley

I felt excited watching the dye mixtures being made up and seeing them turn into bright colours. – Lucy

It was fun taking off the elastic bands and seeing the pattern that you had made. – Oliver
