The people supported at Hillcrest have been designing their own t-shirts this summer using the tie-dye method. 

Their regular arts and crafts session got messy when Team Leader James Murphy suggested they experiment with the colourful technique. 

Using white t-shirts, the group got to work using their chosen colours to create the eye-catching tie-dye patterns. 

Although plenty of mess was made, James said the results look fantastic and the people supported at Hillcrest were delighted with their new clothes. 

James said: “I thought tie-dye was a great option because it’s quite simple to do and the effect it creates looks brilliant. 

“Everyone had a lot of fun mixing up their colours, choosing what to use and then transforming their t-shirts. 

“I’m really impressed with the results we had and the people we support love the fact they can wear clothes that they helped design. It’s made us think about other crafty clothes sessions we could run.”
