In this family-friendly Indigo Workshop with Ayo Ngozi, we’ll learn about the history of indigo in the Lowcountry, and the critical role enslaved Africans played in making indigo, one of the most important parts of the local economy and culture. We’ll also look at how indigo is used in different ways (from paint to hair dye), and then we’ll make our own indigo-dyed projects to bring home!
