Day 7: Tie-Dye Production Centre

Today we went to ZhouCheng (I think..) to a Tie-Dye production centre. We got to try our own hand at making a tie-dye fabric. It is actually a lot harder than it seems; we had to sew it with string, then tie it. I was doing such a horrible job that the grandma there took the fabric from my hands and finished it herself. I didn't really mind because she made it look pretty once more.

We also got to eat lunch at the tie-dye production centre. I have to honestly say, I didn't really enjoy the lunch there. All the food was some sort of flower or plant that people don't usually eat. There was tree bark, jasmine seeds, something really spicy, and other interesting tasting foods. Another factor that contributed to me not enjoying lunch that much was that there was A LOT of flies. There was at least 50 flies just flying over us, on us and on our food. It kind of made me loose my appetite.

But overall, our day at the tie-dye place was really fun and I hope to return there to make more tie-dye stuff.


Wonderful job!


Hi Peyton, 

Just wanted to say that it is wonderful to read about your adventures there at microcampus. Keep working hard and having fun and it will be interesting to see the results of your inquiry project in the end. All of us here at SAMS are sending you good wishes for a fantastic month!
