Indigo Exploration at Coastal Discovery Museum

Join us on April 14 at 5 p.m. at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island to 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 one t-shirt to tie dye with indigo dye, made from what was once our area’s well-known “cash crop.” This program is for ages 7 and older. Only registered paid participants will be admitted into this program. All children must be accompanied by a registered adult. Cost is $15 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
