Woodworking at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum this fall

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is inviting experienced and novice woodworkers to its Wednesday Open Boatshop program on October 19, November 2 and 16, and December 7. The program runs from 5-8:00 pm., with class size limited and pre-registration needed.

The program invites members of the public to CBMM’s boatyard to work on a small woodworking project of their own, or to bring ideas and seek advice on a future project.

Participants will gain the advice and guidance of an experienced shipwright and woodworker, along with assistance with CBMM’s machinery and tools, plans, measurements and the execution of their small-scale project. Projects can include plans for a small gift, frames, furniture, models, artwork and more.

The Wednesday Open Boatshop program is $30 per session for CBMM members, or $40 per session for non-members. Participants must be 16 or older, unless accompanied by an adult. To register or for more information, contact CBMM Boatyard Program Manager Jenn Kuhn at 410-745-4980 or [email protected]
