The Model Guild at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., will host a two-day, model-building workshop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 27-28.

Participants will create a half-hull model of the Pride of Baltimore II.

Band-sawed from a block and carved to the rounded shape of the Pride’s hull, the half-hull model is then mounted on a baseboard to form a fine wall display piece.

The Model Guild welcomes anyone 12 years of age or older to take these classes, and encourages new members of all skill levels to participate in the guild, use its facilities, and trade model building experience with museum visitors.

The cost for the Oct. 27-28 workshop is $80 for museum members and $95 for non-members, with all tools and materials supplied. Call (410) 745-4941 to register for the class or (410) 745-3266 for information.
