Class size for the weekend workshop is limited, with pre-registration needed by calling 410-745-4941. More information is at www.cbmm.org.

Led step-by-step by skilled modelers, participants will create a 10-inch wooden rowing skiff with lapped side planking and a flat bottom. Class size is limited, with pre-registration needed.

The 10-inch model is formed over a frame in much the same manner as a real boat is constructed. Thin toothpicks are used along with fast-drying glue to fasten the models together. Models are made of one dark and one light wood, which are alternated in the design to make a handsome, two-toned appearance.

CBMM’s 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. A special rate for a parent-child team can accommodate younger children.

The cost for the three day workshop is $80 for CBMM members and $95 for non-members, with all tools and materials supplied. Pre-registration is required by Monday, February 24 by calling 410-745-4941. For more information, contact Model Guild Director Bob Mason at 410-745-3266 or [email protected].
