If you’re a fan of winding down while making stuff–like, say paint-your-own pottery–then you should give batik a try. Hiho Batik is a new boutique selling sweet batik clothing and accessories for kids and adults, and they’ve got a Make Your Own space in back, where you can pick up a pillow, shirt or pouch and flex those dyeing muscles you haven’t used since you dumped a twisted, rubber banded T-shirt in a bucket of Rit Dye. Batik is a much more forgiving process, involving wax, and on Friday between 4 and 6 pm Hiho will take $10 off your item ($40 to $50 depending on what you pick) and give you a 20% discount in store when you fill out their form and mention BB in the comments.
