Join us for our first Indigo Dyeing Workshop at the Park!
Eliza Lucas Pinckney grew the first successful crop of indigo in South Carolina in 1742. It soon became the second-most profitable crop in the colony, preceded only by rice. Come learn all about this fascinating plant, how to process it for dye, and its impact on South Carolina history. Participants will even be able to try their hand at indigo dyeing with one item (t-shirt size or smaller) brought from home.
Pre-registration required. Please call 843-899-5200 to register.
Cost is $5 per person the day of program, children 6 and under are Free.
