The Coastal Discovery Museum will host “Indigo Exploration” on February 27 from 5-7 p.m. You will take a 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 dye t-shirt to take home. This family friendly educational experience is fun for all ages.
Cost is $15 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223. The museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island. coastaldiscovery.org.
