This little beauty of a hand dye basin resides in Central College St Martins on Charing Cross Road's female toilets. I took this picture on my blackberry of it a couple of weeks ago when I was hit with nostalgia. I once dyed some sheets for a fashion shoot to create a tie dye effect many moons ago in this basin. And when I popped into the library at Charing Cross I went to the toilet on my way out and thought I needed to capture this basin as it won't be there much longer. CSM is moving to a new purpose built college near Kings Cross soon and Holburn and Charing Cross will be no more.
I was also a bit cross the last person to use it hadn't cleaned it out properly and left the residue of dye in and on the basin, very naughty and selfish. I might sneak in a final hand dye .... the rack above the basin comes down to allow you to drip dry the dyed item.
