Following AWAKENING IV: INDIGO, we are excited to announce Community Dye Days! Come experience the history, culture, science and art of indigo. Indigo has deep roots in South Carolina, providing years of history and artistic opportunities for its people!
During Enough Pie’s VAT SHACK Community Dye Day, participants will be under the wise guidance of our local indigo artists affectionately referred to as Den Mamas. This hands-on dying experience will be held in the VAT SHACK, a mobile shack build by students of the Clemson Design.Build program. The community is also invited to tie-in a piece of cloth to the Community Rag Quilt, a collaborative art project that will be displayed in the John Dart Library in the years to come.
You are invited to bring prewashed 100% natural fabrics (cotton, linen, silk) to dye for a small fee. Small sample fabric pieces will be available onsite for free to learn with. The event will take place at the Joseph Floyd Manor, 2106 Mt Pleasant St. Charleston, SC 29403. Parking is available at either the Manor or across King Street in the green space by the railroad tracks. And just like all Enough Pie programs, this event is free- and all are welcome!
