Re-imagined Sailor Valentines

May 17 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

A new twist on an old seaside tradition! Join us at the Nye Museum on Friday, May 17 at 6-8 for a “Creative Mingle” workshop where you will create a re-imagined sailor’s valentine. A sailor’s valentine is a form of shellcraft, an antique souvenir, or sentimental gift made using hundreds of small seashells. Popular in the 1800s, they were designed to be brought home from a voyage at sea and given to the sailor’s loved one as an expression of affection. While many of the original sailor’s valentine’s were of considerable size, thereby requiring weeks, if not months of work, this workshop to create a “re-imagined” sailors valentine will provide you with a beautiful piece in a couple hours. Just bring your imagination, and Katri Mullaly of Sisukat Designs will provide everything else.

Pre-registration required.
