The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is hosting a marlinspike workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 23. The program takes place in the museum’s boat shop, with limited participation and advanced registration needed.

Participants will join CBMM’s Assistant Curator for Watercraft and master rigger Richard Scofield as he walks through the art of decorative and functional knot tying, as well as splicing and serving lines. Children ages 12 and up are welcome with an adult chaperone. Participants can bring their own tools, or tools can be provided. The cost is $45 for CBMM members, or $55 for non-members.
