Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum offers holiday workshops for students during breaks

. November 10, 2017

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering students a selection of two-day, holiday gift-making workshops between this year’s Thanksgiving and winter breaks. Hosted by CBMM’s Rising Tide After-School Boatbuilding Program, the workshops take place Monday & Wednesday evenings from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the boatshop, with dates set for Nov. 27 & 29, and Dec. 4 & 6, 11 & 13, and 18 & 20.

Participants will come away from the program with hand-made projects suitable for holiday gift giving, like a cutting board, or a decorative light. The holiday gift-making workshops are suited for students in grades six to 10, and offered free of charge.

CBMM’s Rising Tide After-School Boatbuilding Program teaches students basic boatbuilding skills in a welcoming, relaxed environment. The program works to inspire participants to develop a sense of self-confidence and pride, and facilitate mentorships that provide guidance and support. Students of the program will be encouraged to become more academically prepared to achieve long-term success, whether on a college track or vocational emphasis, having gained skills in mathematics, engineering, team building, and project management. Various Rising Tide workshops and events are offered by throughout the year, including model making, canvas building and painting classes, girls’ workshops, holiday gift workshops, and more.
