Sailors’ Valentine Workshop
February 15 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Saturday, February 15, 10am-1pm
Sailors’ Valentines are a form of sea shell art, popular in the 1800s, when sailors brought them home to their wives, girlfriends, mothers, or sisters. Most Sailors’ Valentines were made in the West Indies, on the island of Barbados, between 1830 and 1880, but production continued into the early 20th century. In this workshop, you can make your own Sailors’ Valentine to take home. All materials and tools provided. Come back on Sunday if you need a little more time. Contact Jeana at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-548-2529 x 213 to register.
