Inks and Dyes: Open House

August 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Sending a message in 1847 was a bit more difficult than it is today with smartphones. Ink had to be acquired or made from local berries or nuts, such as walnuts and pokeberries, and even from garden scraps, such as onion peels and flower petals. Visit the McKinnis House and learn how the pioneers made ink and dyes. Participants who visit will have an opportunity to write a note using handmade ink and make a beaded bracelet using dye string.
