Fabric Dyeing by the Sea
Ann’s hillside studio overlooks the Gulf of the St. Lawrence and the rolling dunes of West Mabou beach. Lobster boats head out to sea, watched over by the resident bald eagle pair from their lookout on the bluff. Here you can discover the magic of dyeing silk scarves, cotton fabric, and/or T-shirts with rainbow hues. You don’t need to be “artistic” or experienced in any way, just willing to play, experiment and try something new.
