ARTifact Workshop: Scrimshaw
July 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you enjoy working with your hands and learning something new? Our new mini-workshop series is a great way for older kids to try out different exhibit-inspired crafts. Each class lasts two hours and gives participants a bit of the museum and a lot of crafting!
Sailors on long voyages used the things they had on their ships to pass the time, most famously carving designs into whalebone and creating art called “scrimshaw.” Visit our new scrimshaw exhibit to draw inspiration, and then carve your own designs into soap!
Pre-registration is required and space is limited; the fee includes museum admission and all materials. Best for ages 8-12.
Class size minimum: 3 children. Registrations close Friday at noon.
Registrations for this program are closed. We hope you can join us for a different ARTifact Workshop!
