INDIGO
EXPLORATION
May 23, 2024 / 5:00-6:00pm

Journey to the past and “meet” Eliza Lucas Pinckney. In 1739, when Eliza was just 17 years old, her experiments with indigo resulted in a very profitable industry for the colony of South Carolina. Hear her unique story, learn how indigo dye was made, and make your own indigo tie-dye t-shirt to take home. The Museum will provide you with one t-shirt (size Child M – Adult XL) to tie dye with indigo dye made from what was once our area’s well-known “cash crop.” You are welcome to bring an additional cotton item to dye. $20 per person (ages 13 and older only please).
