May 5th Kid's Natural Dye Class
3:15-4:30 ages 7-13 w/ Laura La Rue of Ride or Dye
Kiddos, come learn about using plants to dye your clothing! Laura will bring her dye baths and witchy wisdom and teach us different tie dye techniques and how to lower our impact on the planet through our clothing choices. Every kid goes home with new knowledge, and their own certified organic socks dyed with plants!
Laura La Rue is the owner of Ride or Dye Ojai (they now have a brick and mortar at 106 Park Rd!). Her passion for natural dyes began here in Ojai with a dear friend. They tie dyed everything white that they could find: old t shirts, stained bed sheets, vintage Levis and more. What started out as a hobby/side hustle has now turned into her full time job. She spends her days at home harvesting a variety of plants to then make beautifully dyed goods such as bandanas, socks, undies, baby onesies and so much more. The beauty of dyeing with natural dyes is that every piece is unique. You never really know what you're gonna get and its all part of the fun!
