Messy Play/ Colour Crew meetup this Saturday (2nd Saturday of the month)
This meetup is for giving yourself a longer time to work on projects with the girls. We haven't had time to plan anything specifically.
Nell`might try the tie dye with bleach technique as she has a lot of dark clothes that need revamping.
We haven't had time to prepare any eco dye stuff but Natalie has found us a fabulous teacher, so we will be organising that soon.
Another option is to try some handbuilt clay fun.
It's a meetup, so everyone is responsible for helping set up and leaving the place as you found it ;-).
10-3 gives you time for a lunch break, and a walk out the back to scavenge for materials if you need them :-) (like the 'wild weaving' that someone shared last week....). People that want to are welcome to stay longer, but they need to lock up
book here: https://coolumwomensshed.as.me/?appointmentType=14971266.
