July 2 , 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
As part of our collection at the Museum, we are the home of a topsail from the Aladdin, a boat built in 1928 and used by the summer campers at Camp Dingley Dell on the Champlain Islands until 1939. Aladdin’s sails were unforgettably colorful and have their own unique tie-dye style design, a peek of which you can see in the image featured here. We’ve been inspired by these sails and want to create our own multi-colored creations!
Join us on Saturday, July 2 for a tie-dye workshop inspired by these multi-colored sails! Kids of all ages (and adults too!) can join us to get a close-up look at the real topsail and then tie-dye their own shirt inspired by the Aladdin. $5 per shirt, pay in the Museum’s welcome center.
Want to know more about the topsail itself? Come earlier in the day for a textile cleaning demonstration to learn how we care for the sails and other textiles in our Collection.
