How They Dyed…...Fabric!

Back before stores began selling clothes ready made any people had a skillset that would help them make their own clothes. If you wanted your clothes to be a color other than the color of the wool or silk or cotton you were using, you dyed it! In this class we will tie dye things and do fabric art, adding a little flair to the Victorian way of dying clothes!

Summerslam Camp Session 1 June 18-21st  (4-day Camp!)

All classes are held outside in the park next to Waveland Clock Tower. They will run rain or shine, unless there’s a great deal of rain or cold; if that occurs, they will be moved to Pendulum building (if it is a Session class) or rescheduled if a LARP Event (we will notify parents via email as soon as possible in the event this happens). Drop-ins are welcome in some classes; Please check the “Notes” section. Classes, of course, must meet their minimum to run at all.

Details and Perks of the Park:  There is plenty of metered parking. The Irving Park (#80) and Addison (#152) buses are also great options, plus several inner Lake Shore Dr. buses. There are public bathrooms, plenty of shade, and a lovely bar/cafe nearby. Drop your kid off or stay and enjoy the park! Sign up for 3 (paying classes, not LARP) and get one free!
