Venue: Ox-Bow Campus

2:ooPM - 5:00PM. Ox-Bow School of Art. Ice-dying is an easy to learn, visually complex, and beautifully unpredictable form of tie-dye. In this four-day workshop, we will dive head first into a DIY ice-dye process, using a set up that can easily be recreated at home. Students will be guided through the entire process beginning with fabric preparation and dye color selection, to folding and stitch resist techniques, to finishing with proper wash out methods and the unveiling of our creations! Participants will walk away with ice-dyed items to be worn on the body, hung in the home, or otherwise repurposed. Special emphasis will be placed on the up-cycling of old clothing, found textiles, and fabrics. Have something hanging out in your closet that hasn’t seen the light of day in a while? Let’s dye it! All dyes will be provided. Ice-Dye It! runs August 18-21, from 2PM-5PM each day, taught by Bobby Gonzales, and costs $190 Art on the Meadow is a unique program, providing an intergenerational space for students to come together in the inspiring natural environment at Ox-Bow for half day, one day, or short term multi-day classes. Our workshops are geared toward teen and adult makers of all experience levels, age 13 and up. Art on the Meadow workshops offer participants an opportunity to connect traditional art and craft processes with contemporary ideas and approaches to artmaking. We strive for our workshops to be imaginatively challenging and logistically accessible for our West Michigan neighbors. Come jump into Ox-Bow’s creative community (and maybe even into our beautiful lagoon)!
