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.

Celebrating the lives of the 19th-century Mainers who went to sea, this Sunday will offer visitors an opportunity to make simple Sailor’s Valentines and shell jewelry as a drop-in activity. At 1pm, Joe Greeley will present a program on sea chanteys. Sea chanteys were an integral part of life aboard a merchant sailing ship. With small crews it was vitally important for the sailors to work together and chanteys provided the means to do. By the use of a 'call and response' song, the chantyman regulated the work so that each man knew when to haul. In addition, sailors’ songs provided a means of entertainment when the sailors were off watch.
