From Scratch: Scrimshaw for Beginners

When: Tue., July 18, 6-9 p.m. 2017

Three Tuesdays. Students will learn the American maritime art of scrimshaw, from start to finish. They’ll 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 bone-handled marlin spike pocket knife to take home. 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.

Price: $185/$145 members
