Kimberly Washburn: Indigo Dyeing
March 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The L.W. Paul Living History Farm will host a free hands-on workshop on indigo dyeing on Tuesday, March 10th at 10 AM. Join Kimberly Washburn, Curator of Education at the Florence County Museum, to explore Indigofera Suffruticosa, the variety of indigo grown in colonial South Carolina.
Art, Science and History meet in this hands-on exploration of natural indigo. Participants will explore the importance of the indigo plant to South Carolina’s early agricultural economy, learn the science behind this unique dye plant, and learn pattern-making techniques to create an original work of textile art using indigo dye. Each participant will design and dye one cotton flour sack towel.
Space is limited, pre-registration is encouraged. Please contact the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or email email@example.com.
