Hands on History - Indigo Discovery with Eliza

See history come alive through these hands-on, family friendly programs led by experienced first-person interpreters.
Indigo Discovery with Eliza will be presented on June 5, July 24 and August 21.
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. This family friendly educational experience is fun for all ages.
Cost is $12 adult, $10 child (ages 5-12) and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223 or online at www.coastaldiscovery.org/calendar of events.
