Maritime museum’s open boatshop program returns

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., is offering its Friday Open Boatshop woodworking program beginning March 7 and continuing April 18, May 9, and June 9.

Participants can attend one session or all four, with class size limited and pre-registration needed.

The program invites members of the public to museum’s boatshop to work on a small woodworking project of their own, or to bring ideas for a longer term project.

Participants can expect to gain the advice and guidance of an experienced shipwright and woodworker, along with assistance with the museum’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 Friday Open Boatshop program runs from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and costs $20 per session for museum members and $30 per session for non-members.

Participants must be 16 or older, unless accompanied by an adult.
