Learn How to Tie Dye with Snow

Wednesday, March 27th | 6 PM | Our Lady of the Snows | $5 | Sign-Up

Give an old t-shirt or hoodie new life in this hands-on class where you’ll learn to tie dye with SNOW! You’ll learn how to tie the fabric into a snowflake pattern and use snow to apply the dye. You’ll have access to professional-grade dyes to create a custom color palette for your item(s).

The Trash Pile offers sustainably crafted, one-of-a-kind tie dye. Each item is carefully selected at a local thrift store and is then carefully tied and dyed by hand into a wearable work of art. I’m passionate about keeping cool clothing out of landfills, turning them into someone’s favorite item they’ll wear for years, and doing my part to save the planet while I’m at it. In just three years, I’ve upcycled more than 3,000 clothing items. Join me!
