Tie dye with Ruqaiya

“Hi, I’m Ruqiaya, one of this year’s VICTA Young Ambassadors and an art student. I’m also visually impaired myself and I’ll be talking you through, as descriptively as I can, how to tie-dye a t-shirt at home. If you give it a go, share your designs @VICTAUK or email students@victa.org.uk.”
