Making Sail: Canvas Ditty Bags

April 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington Street
Bath, ME 04530 United States
$10.00 - $100.00

Made primarily of sailcloth, a sailor's ditty bag was crafted using all the techniques essential to the art of Sailmaking. Join Mike Bartles, co-owner of M&H Bartles, Sailmakers, to explore the fundamental hand-work that once drove the world's commerce across the globe as you create your very own canvas ditty bag. Learn how to stich, sew and splice with an experienced sailmaker, catching a glimpse of the trade as it was practiced throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Mike Bartles learned the fundamentals of sailmaking during his time at Mystic Seaport Museum and went on to lead the maintenance of the museum's sails. In 2013, Mike joined the crew of Nathaniel Wilson's sail loft where he had the opportunity to work on a suit of sails for the Charles W. Morgan restoration. Mike opened his own sail loft, M&H Bartles, Sailmaking, in 2018 in Boothbay Harbor. Workshop will be held in Maine Maritime Museum's Boatshop. Capacity is limited to 12 participants. Masks are required.

Creative Writing with Ship Logs and Sea Journals

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington Street
Bath, ME 04530 United States
$4.00 - $100.00

From shipwrecks and piracy to foreign ports and the wide open sea, the experiences of those who lived aboard sailing vessels have inspired some of the best fiction in American history. In this two-hour workshop we will look closely at a selection of ship logs and sailors' journals from Maine Maritime Museum's collection, using our imaginations to give these first-hand accounts new life. Coupled with the backdrop of the historic shipyard and the remnants of the clipper ship, Snow Squall, these journals will inspire children and adults alike to create a piece of writing based on maritime journeys long ago. Participants will have the opportunity to share their writing with the group in a positive workshop setting. All ages are welcome--content level is appropriate for ages 5+. Space is limited to 16 participants. Preregistration is advised to guarantee availability. Masks are required for everyone 5 years and older, and strongly encouraged for ages 2-4.

Empty Hand, Empty Brush: A Calligraphy Workshop

April 25 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington Street
Bath, ME 04530 United States
$10.00 - $100.00

Countless mariners sailed on Bath-built ships around the world including trips through Asia. They returned with items of cultural significance to display in their homes, to give as gifts and to commemorate their adventures, thus introducing Eastern art forms such as traditional calligraphy in the west. We will explore how this has continued to evolve and merge with contemporary art concepts into exciting and dynamic new forms. This workshop will demonstrate how East-West calligraphy is a type of meditation and also a discipline in centering--starting from the correct postural alignment of the spine, to preparing calligraphic ink, holding the brush correctly as an extension of the arm and executing brush strokes in oneness. Learn how to sense your internal energy through Qi-Gong and Tai Chi exercises and apply this awareness to free-flowing calligraphic art, besides demonstrating traditional Eastern calligraphic paintings. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to integrate mindfulness and creative expression. Experienced artists and beginners welcome! For those who wish to do brush work during the workshop, rice paper, brushes, ink stone and sticks are available for an additional modest fee. For materials please contact the artist at kichunglizee9@gmail.com. This is an in-person event in Maine Maritime Museum's Long Reach Hall.
