How does it work?

 

There are two ways to book with us: if you just want to book one of our regularly scheduled events as a group you can use our online booking system to purchase tickets for your group. We are all ages fun until 5:30 and then adult only 5:30-10.

If you want to plan and book a private event, the only difference for private is we have minimums and must be arranged by phone to block off your time as private please note. The cost per person is the same whether open or private event, but we do have a $500/up to 10 basic tickets included minimum before tax to rent the space on Tues/Wed and $750/up to 15 basic tickets included min for Thurs-Sun. So for example even if you only have 10 people but want to host a private event on a Saturday you still can for the $750 space rental fee. This is paid at time of booking to reserve your private event date/time.

There are two ticket options, Basic $50/Premium $60 which both include choices of dyeable merchandise + the two hour event time included. Merchandise included is an option of pick 1/pick 2 or up to 4 of our mix & match. Examples of pick 1's are larger items like sweatshirts/sweatpants or hoodies etc., vs pick 2's are medium items such as t-shirts or dog outfits etc., vs our mix & matches are small items like scrunchies, masks, headbands etc. Additional pieces can be added a la carte, but this is what comes included in the per person price already. The Premium comes with one of our party favor tie dye glasses for everyone to either use during the party and take away as a souvenir.

What’s the difference between basic and premium?

Both packages include choices of dyeable merchandise, assistance with tieing, and use of our dye-dispenser taps to pick your custom colors to dye with! The Premium package includes our souvenir tie dye silicone cup for you to take home with you or include as a party favor!

Is it a formal class?

No. This is an interactive, lively party where people are encouraged to have fun while making their own tie dye styles! We instruct throughout the event to help YOU make your vision. We show you basic to intermediate methods that everyone from 6 to 96 can do by themselves with zero stress and zero mess! :)

How long does it take? Does it take the whole time?

We set each booking window for 2 hours and in our open events we have limited reservations available so everyone has more than enough time to tie dye and enjoy! Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons are the best times to walk in wanting to get in and out, you’ll be through in a jif! If you get creative or want to sit back and enjoy your drinks, you will have 2 hours to do so!

Do you have alcohol on tap?

No! We are a BYOB only location. Any taps you may see on our website or from outside are from our Dye Bar. Our dispenser-style tap handles allow customers to mix and create endless combinations of unique colors to dye with. Just don’t drink them!

What can we bring for BYOB? Can we bring food?

Wine, beer, liquor are all alright! We have 14oz wine glasses, 12oz rocks glasses, and shot glasses for use in house or to take home with our premium ticket. You are welcome to bring food too! Please keep in mind unless you have a private party booked, you may be sharing the space with several others so please be mindful (no one wants your fried-fish catering for 4 people sitting out, right?). We have plates, silverware, bar napkins and ice complimentary for your use as well. Forgot your bottle opener? No problem! We have bottle openers and wine keys readily available.

Yes! Plates, silverware, cups, ice, bar napkins, and bottle/wine openers are all available.

Do you do off site parties?

Pop up parties are in our bones! We started Tipsy Tie Dye in homes, bars,​ ​restaurants, and boutiques all over, so we are perfectly capable of bringing the​ ​party- although please note we do have higher minimums for off-site events. If you​ ​want to have an off-site event but are under these minimums, we still have other​ ​alternatives for at-home parties such as our DIY Party Kits which are great for​ ​at-home parties and gifts!

Do you do virtual events?

We do them virtually all the time! This day and age, everyone is spread out in​ ​different​ ​states, homes, offices, etc and online together. We send our DIY Party Kits​ ​to your off-site locations along with options of add-on dyeable merchandise, and​ ​then Zoom our way to a great virtual event!

How does pricing work? What does it include? What do I get for what price?​ ​Can I bring my own items?

Of course you can! If you prefer to reuse, recycle, and remake your own favorites​ ​into new tie dye fashions you may substitute up to three of your own garments in​ ​substitute for our in-store merchandise included in your ticket price. Make sure they​ ​have a high cotton content and they’re of a reasonable size. Example: If you bring​ ​in your comforter that is not a reasonable size…. We will still let you dye it but there​ ​may be a premium charge added for oversized items. Please call ahead if you​ ​have questions regarding the size or cotton content of your items.

How does washing work?

You can either take it home the same day or utilize our wash and dry service. The​ ​provide the care instructions for at-home care, which are to rinse in a non-dyeable​ ​sink under cold water at least 12 hours after take home, cut the rubber bands, and​ ​put in a washing machine ALONE on cold with detergent. You may use fabric​ ​softener and dry as you prefer. If you do not want to wash them yourself, we’ll take​ ​care of it! Our wash & dry service is $7.50 dollars per piece, where we carefully​ ​process each item so it's ready for pickup within a week of your attendance.

Should I worry about ruining my clothes or dyeing my hands?

We provide gloves and aprons, and these are required for all guests to wear​ ​anytime they are handling dye in order to prevent any mess of any kind! We do​ ​recommend you don’t wear anything irreplaceable, as we are not responsible for​ ​the loss of personal items and as these are dyes being used, but that being said with​ ​the use of gloves and aprons as well as our mess-free setup there is a low risk​ ​to staining.
