Tie Dye Methods

Tie Dye Samples As well as teaching Art and Design I am responsible for teaching D&T at my school. These images are of some of the tie dye pieces my year 8 class produced last week. These will eventually become mini cushions once the students have appliquéd their designs on to them in the coming weeks.

Tie Dye is such a fun thing to do and the students can never wait to unwrap the elastic bands to see how their pieces have turned out. It would be a great techniques to use in art and design class!

Here are the step by step sheets I provided students with in the lesson (just right click to save)

To help the year 7 pupils in their textiles lesson I put together a simple step by step sheet on applique. Some pupils used a simple straight stitch but the more advanced tried a blanket stitch!
