About The Event

Let's Tie-Dye the natural way!!

For our next LEXSA Members Giveaway & Workshop, we are creating DIY Vegetable-dye Socks! 

Your pack includes a pair of crew socks (select your size range), rubber bands, a $10 Coles voucher to help purchase your vegetables/vinegar, and tie-dye instructions (including a graph showing what colour dye each vegetable makes - e.g. Avocado pits = Pink! )

We've picked an easy tutorial to follow together, which will teach you step-by-step how to create your vegetable dye, as well as different patterns if you wish to do a tie-dye design. You will need some extra supplies for this project, which you can use your $10 Coles voucher to help purchase:

  • Vegetables, fruit or spices for your dye
  • Salt
  • Vinegar
  • Water
  • Small saucepans

The Colours

You can dye your socks one or multiple colours! See the list below to help you decide what vegetables/fruit/spices to aquire:

  • Beetroot - reddish/pink
  • Avocado pits & skin - peach
  • Red Cabbage - purple
  • Blueberries/black beans - blue
  • Spinach - green
  • Brown Onion skins - orange
  • Tumeric/lemon peels - yellow
