Spend an afternoon with fibre artist Corinne Lilie of Black Sheep Studio! Learn how to obtain and process dye materials, how to prepare dye pots, then how to make your dyed fiber colorfast. Each student will work with skeins of yarn and four different dye pots to produce eight different colorful samples of nature's glorious palette. All materials are natural and non-caustic. Students will work outside on the Art Studio lawn, weather-permitting. Come and play with color!

Corinne Lilie is fibre artist and at one time raised her own sheep for their wool fleece. She spins wool, silk, cotton, and angora into yarn and dyes her yarns with natural dyes. She weaves, knits and makes handmade felt with her handspun, naturally-dyed yarns. Many of these dyes are derived from dye plants grown in her own garden. With a goal to use and preserve historically authentic methods, Corinne uses a fermentation method to achieve the indigo blue that was used by colonials here on Cape Cod.
