The art of building miniature ships in bottles has been around for centuries, reaching its high point aboard the sailing ships of the 19th Century, when clear glass bottles became plentiful. Writer, historian, and ship-in-bottle craftsman Jim Nelson will lead this unique workshop, taking students through each step of this traditional sailors’ art form. Participants will each build a ship-in-bottle that they can take home. All tools and materials will be supplied. Class limited to 6.
