Teacher 2 Teacher Workshops

Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) Teacher 2 Teacher Workshops are for teachers to teach colleagues creative reuse techniques that can apply to the classroom.

Experiment with natural fabric dyeing and printing while enjoying a couple hours at the beach!


Renew pillowcases with color and printing techniques for pleasant dreams for you or a friend.

Artist Monika Neuland will teach 3-hour experiential workshops on natural and synthetic dyeing and printing at both Montrose Beach and South Shore Beach. Workshops are presented in conjunction with artist/clients from Envision Unlimited.

You supply 2 clean 100% cotton pillowcases to dye. (Please reuse old ones, rather than buy new ones : )
