Fiber College artist Susan Perrine will offer a workshop on weaving a garden twig longhouse-style hut Saturday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Searsport Shores Ocean Campground, Route 1.

The workshop will show how one can collect branches, twigs and poles from the woods and create a gathering place for special occasions or quiet time in the garden. Built before the daisies bloom, such a hut can be a conversation piece, a sculpture, a playhouse or simply a retreat for daydreaming.

Running concurrently will be a natural dyeing demonstration with wool and daffodil blossoms; and spinning with drop spindles at 1 p.m.

For more information, call 548-6059 or send e-mail to Everyone is invited, free of charge. On site camping is available with a potluck supper on Saturday night and a chance to talk more with the artists at a beach bonfire.
