Tie-Dye T-Shirts

With the arrival of spring, so too comes nature’s palette of colour. But nature isn’t the only place that you’ll find bursts of colour.

Youth from the Pender Crisis Program recently had the opportunity to engage in the practice of tie-dyeing. Although often looked upon as a fad from the 1960s, tie-dyeing has been around for centuries as a way to colour textiles.

Tie-dyeing is a multi-stage process that is not only fun and expressive, but a great way to interact with youth in a very casual setting.

Have you ever tried tie-dyeing? Apparently, Pinterest searches around tie-dyeing have increased dramatically since the pandemic. These photos show some of the creativity that has blossomed at CHV, along with spring.
