Grade 2 had fun dying! First they had to dye the batik they have been working on and test how the colour had resisted the wax and then they had to tie up their t shirts, very tight with elastic bands. This stops the dye from getting to those spaces and creates some funky shapes and patterns. The t-shirts look great. At home remember to wash them separately as the color may run and the batiks can be ironed between sheets of newspaper to remove the wax.
