The Drop demonstration will be a way in which visiting guests can observe a very unique process, Ice Dying, and participate through selecting custom colors and styles for themselves. 

The process involves covering treated fabric with a layer of ice, carefully applying powdered dyes and letting the melting ice carry the color through the fabric – creating inky blurs of color.  Heat is applied to help the process along. After the ice has melted, the fabric is rinsed several times to remove the extra dye, and then hung to dry.  Different base colors of fabric as well as different dye colors will be available, and samples will be completed prior to the date in order to help the guests with selection.  After the fabric is completed, it will be taken back to the oe-o studio and made into the garment of the guest’s choice.  These will all be delivered back to the 1971 - Design Store for pick up after approximately one week’s time.
