Participants were shown how to fold, roll, scrunch and tie pieces of cotton. These were then soaked in plain water for 10 mins for the water to permeate the fibres. Then they were taken out, squeezed as dry as possible and then placed in a basin of catalyst. After 5 mins, they were removed from the basin with gloves and squeezed as dry as possible and then rinsed with plain water. This is repeated with the dyes in a similar manner.
Everyone was excited to see the outcome! These are some of the examples of the results they got :
