The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Model Guild is hosting a two-day model-building workshop from 9-5 pm. on Saturday, November 8 and Sunday, November 9 in the museum’s Bay History building.
Participants will create a half-hull model of the Pride of Baltimore II, a reproduction of an 1812-era topsail schooner privateer. 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 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 share their model-building experiences with CBMM guests.
The cost for the March 23-24 workshop is $80 for CBMM 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 more information about the Model Guild. Space is limited, with pre-registration required by Monday, November 3.
