Sailors’ Valentine Workshops

February 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, February 9th, 10am – 12pm
Children, under age 7 with adult helper, $8
Adults, $20

Sailor’s 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 Sailor’s 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. Children will build the Sailors’ Valentine with a plastic base while the adult workshop will have smaller shells, a wooden base, and tweezers to easily set small shells. All materials and tools provided.
