The Mariners' Museum will be holding an interactive workshop about the history, myths, and lore of indigo. Indigo, prized for centuries due to its beautiful purple-blue color and its rarity, was often referred to as “blue gold.” Originally produced in India, this dye has been an important trading commodity among maritime cultures for centuries. During this workshop indigo vats will be set up for guests to their own items as well as two cotton napkins included in the cost. Register early as slots are sure to fill soon!
