STEAMbox Family Workshop: A Sailor’s Pastime: Scrimshaw/Knot Tying

December 16, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Come join us for our STEAMbox program, where you will explore maritime topics through hands-on learning in STEM + the arts to create, build, and problem solve. All workshops are held on Saturdays from 10:30 am until 11:30 am. Content appropriate for ages 4 – 10 years, but all are welcome. Pre-registration is required, and opens one month in advance. Registration is only necessary for the child(ren) taking part in the activity and one accompanying adult (additional adults are welcome, but not required to register).

Being a sailor involved living at sea for years at a time. While it was adventurous and exciting, there could also be times of stillness. Whalers might have gone months without seeing a whales or port. So, what would a sailor do with all of that downtime? Come learn about a sailor’s life on the boats that sailed the world. Try your hand at carving scrimshaw or learning to tie knots.

STEAMbox programs are generously funded by First Federal Savings, allowing us to offer this program free to the public.
