Sailor’s Valentine Style

Shell Art Workshops

Monday, February 11, 5:30 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day…two Sailors Valentine style shell art workshops.

Learn to embellish a beautiful Victorian style setting in the 1800’s Sailors Valentine art form in this workshop taught by shell artisan Melonie Massa. She will offer hands-on, friendly assistance while teaching you techniques (and secrets) she has honed after a decade of creating this vintage art form. Melonie will also bring some of her most precious tiny sea treasures for you to use! Participants will go home with their natural shell art creation freshly resined and boxed, with a storycard about Sailors Valentines. Your creation will need 2 days undisturbed to cure fully. The resin adds incredible strength to your finished design and also preserves the natural colors of these treasures from the Sea!

Please feel free to bring something very tiny from the Sea of your own that you’d like to incorporate into your piece. Beginners, ages 12 and up, are warmly welcomed! Class minimum 4, maximum 12. Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register email Programs@FishingHeritageCenter.org.
