Department of Design Studies recently conducted a productive hands-on tie and dye workshop with 23.1 first year undergraduates for their Theory and Practice of Design Module. The workshop aimed to familiarize students with the tie and dye technique which includes different techniques of folding and trying to achieve a customized variety of patterns on fabrics. 

The tie and dye technique typically consists of stitching, folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, or even clamps which are followed by dyeing. This technique can be very easily applied to daily life products and applied to an interior. The major appeal of tie-dye has always been its individuality. Being a manual process and the nature of this craft, no two pieces are ever the same. 

Exploring the world of tie and dye, the workshop brought a burst of inspiration for NSBM design undergraduates that paved them to unleash their own creativity and innovation.
