Tangled Up In Blue: Hands-On Indigo Dyeing

Category: Included with Admission

Date: November 15, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Indigo, a plant that produces a blue dye, was an important part of South Carolina’s 18th century economy.  This program will emphasize the many roles that enslaved people performed in the cultivating and processing of this crop.  In addition, guests will have the opportunity to use an indigo vat to create their own blue-dyed piece of fabric. Program is on-going from 12 pm until 3 pm in the Stableyards and is included with general admission.
