Join me Saturday, October 4 from 10 am till noon at The Charleston Museum for another exciting Indigo Dyeing Workshop!
Indigo was one of the early cash crops in the Charleston area, successfully cultivated first by Eliza Lucas Pinckney on her father's rice plantation here. She was so good at growing high-quality indigo that it eventually became the second most lucrative crop for South Carolina (rice was still number 1, but you can't turn things blue with it...).
Past participants in the indigo workshops have dyed a multitude of items, a multitude of blues. It's fun, hands-on, educational, and, as I said, exciting!
