Indigo Dye Day at Callaway Plantation set for September 15

Indigo Dye Day will be held at Callaway Plantation from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, September 15, for ages eight and up. A good activity for families, the workshop includes materials and provides one T-shirt per participant for a fee of $40 per person. Call 706-678-7060 to register.

Indigo has been used through the ages to make that beautiful blue color. The plant was grown extensively in the South, and exported in colonial times back to England.

Participants are encouraged to wear old clothes for the workshop. The dye has a way of getting out of the pot and onto the dyer!
