The Canfield library went totally tie dye at an event for tweens and teens on March 18.

Amanda Kollar, assistant supervisor, youth librarian, hosted the teens and tweens and instructed them on how to make tie dye socks and large tie dye handkerchiefs.

The library provided the socks, handkerchiefs, dye, rubber bands and gloves for the tweens and teens to create their masterpieces.

“There’s no right or wrong way to tie dye. You can get some interesting designs and it always come out looking neat,” Kollar said.

Kollar advised the teens to wrap their creations in plastic wrap when they were finished and then put them in a zip lock bag to take home and let the dye set overnight.

“It is recommended to let the dye set for at least six to eight hours, so let it set overnight and then check out your designs in the morning,” Kollar told the tweens and teens.

The library also provided a snack for attendees when they were finished with their totally tie dyed works of art.
