INAUGURAL CARTE BLANCHE DYE-IT-YOURSELF EVENT:
Sheela Na Gig Underpants for Anasyrma or Not:
MARCH 19 & 20, 2022
In celebration of the incredible vagina, yin, vernal renewal, and the advent of spring, Carte Blanche cordially invites you to our inaugural Philadelphia dye-it-yourself happening.
Bipartite Dye-It-Yourself Women's Underwear Happening
Tie & Dye: Saturday, March 19, Drop-In 10A-2P
Rinse & Reveal: Sunday, March 20, Drop-In 10A-2P
Tie & Dye: Bluebell Park Pavilion in the Wissahickon (Saturday)
Rinse & Reveal: Carte Blanche Color Lab, East Falls (Sunday)
Any-Gendered Adults of All Ages who wish to Celebrate the Feminine by creating a pair of tie-dyed women's underpants
Here are the details:
Please come! If we have never met in real life, this is the perfect opportunity. No cost, but you must bring your own pair of new or clean white cotton underpants (up to 5% spandex or other synthetic is ok, but no more! Synthetic fibers don't take the dye!). Or if you prefer, hipster style undies in sizes XS-XXL are available by preorder for $5--note your preferred size when you RSVP. You must also bring a pre-used plastic bag such as a bread bag--no holes, no crumbs--for containing your dyed undies overnight. Also a plastic bread tag (the little rectangular thing that holds bread bags closed).
Finally, you must RSVP! So I can prepare! Thank you.
Hipster preorder closes Wednesday, March 9.
Event registration closes Monday, March 14.

I can come on Saturday, but can't make it on Sunday. Can I still participate? Is it ok for me to take my tie-dye with me and rinse it at home?
Yes, you can still participate! But no, you cannot depart with your dyed underpants. The communal rinse & reveal and back alley peace flag display of functional yonic tie-dye are central to this weekend of Carte Blanche performance art. But--not to worry--if you are unable to return for Sunday's climax, there will be some sort of arrangement for later-date pickup.
Is it okay to invite my sister/friend/daughter/neighbor/mother/grandmother/husband/partner?
Yes! Please be sure to RSVP for all who will join us. This event is for women and any-gendered adults who wish to celebrate the feminine by creating a pair of tie-dyed women's underpants!
I am very private about my undergarments/only wear silk next to my vulva/don't wear underwear. May I bring a pair of tube socks to dye instead?
Ah, no. This event is for women and any-gendered adults who wish to celebrate the feminine by creating a pair of tie-dyed women's underpants!
My kids love to tie-dye! Is it okay for me to bring them and a 10-pack of cotton undershirts?
Ah, no. This event is for women and any-gendered adults who wish to celebrate the feminine by creating a pair of tie-dyed women's underpants! (My kids love to tie-dye, too. I encourage you to bring the good tie-dye energy home and host a kids' tie-dye party! (Warning: it will be chaos))
Please get in touch via Instagram (@shannon_cronin_art), email (email@example.com), or phone/text (541-359-9442). Or just come on by the Color Lab during regular hours! Just kidding, there are no regular hours--but I really would love to see you and answer your questions in person. Only we'll have to arrange the rendezvous.
SEE YOU THERE!!!
