Old Salem Museums & Gardens Presents Historic Easter Egg Dyeing

"Old Salem Museums & Gardens will kick off Easter week with a drop-in egg-dyeing class. Visitors will have the opportunity to dye their own Easter Eggs using historic dyes on April 12, 2014. Classes take place at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the Vierling Barn at 463 Church Street and will last approximately 30 minutes. Participants will dye three eggs using cabbage, onion skins, and madder for the dyes. Please note that due to the time it takes to achieve the color on the eggs participants will not be taking home their own egg, but will receive three examples using the same techniques.
The cost of the class is $10 per person (collected at the door). Classes are first come, first served and are limited to 20 people per time slot. Children must be at least 6 years old to participate in the class, and everyone who is admitted to the class must pay the $10 entry fee. Anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult.  All participants must have an All-in-One ticket.

For more information, please call 336-721-7300 or email info@oldsalem.org.
