Sailors’ Valentine Workshop on Zoom

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. Participants can work on the projects throughout the week or wait and join us on Zoom on the 6th.

Noon and lasts around 20 minutes

Curator Cipperly Good will present January’s Member Monday “Dressing for Winter.” Joanna Colcord and Antoinette Webber were born a decade apart, both daughters of Searsport Sea Captains.  Through their childhood winter outerwear, we learn about the joys and tragedies of children of merchant mariners.  While their fathers visited tropical climes, both girls experienced Maine winters surrounded by extended families.
