Dip and Tie Dye Stuff n' Such workshop

Wowowow! We had so much fun at our dip/tie dye workshop. Spray bleach ended up being a big hit- first, dye a garment black (or start with a darker coloured fabric) then put bleach in a spray bottle and spray it all over. Looks like a galaxy!! Also works for any colour dye. Here are some photos:

Proposal Workshop

Hi all,

XPACE has an upcoming Submissions deadline on May 25th, 2012. We will be programming for the Main Space, Window Space, XBASE and the External Space (located on OCAD campus) based on the submissions we receive.

We will be holding a Proposal Workshop on Saturday, May 12th for help with the planning and writing of your project proposal. You can download a PDF application form from our website here:

Bring in your project proposals (completed or partial) and we can give you feedback! It is also a great idea to check out the spaces themselves so you have a better idea of where your project would potentially work the best.

The workshop is free and open to anyone! Starts at 1pm.
