From Scratch: Scrimshaw Box - October 20, 2018
Learn the American maritime art of scrimshaw - from start to finish. Explore a brief history of the craft and its place in nautical history, then learn to etch a one-of-a-kind design into a pocket-sized box to take home or give as a gift. Techniques will include preparing the surface for etching, developing a design to fit the space, etching lines with a scribe, and sealing the carved surface. Draw your own design, or trace sample designs. This class is suitable for the complete beginner - no artistic experience is necessary and all supplies will be provided.
PRICE: $175 for HRMM members at the Household level and above, $225 for non-members, includes all materials.
DATE: Saturday, October 20, 2018, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
