Old T-Shirts for Art

Posted on June 7th, 2017 by Sparrow Class

Dear Parents/ Carers,

This coming fortnight Sparrow class are going to be experimenting with tie-dye as part of our Art and Design topic for this term.

As a result we need the children to bring in an old white t-shirt/vest or anything white that you do not mind your children dying.

I will be providing the tie-dye kits all the children need to do is bring in some sort of white material to dye.

Many thanks,

Miss Kelly
