Introduction to Wooden Boat Modeling

August 12, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT

Presented by Ron Lewis and Members of the Hampton Roads Ship Model Society

Cost is $25 for Members, $75 for Museum guests. Each model boat (includes tools, materials, and the model boat kit) costs $125.00.

This special seven-week boat building workshop will guide us through the process of building a model boat. The course is designed for adults and children 12 years and older, and makes an excellent family project.

Classes will take place on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to noon on the following dates: August 12, 19, and 26; and September 9, 16, 23, and 30. There is no class on September 2 (Labor Day weekend). Please plan to attend all 7 weeks if possible!

PLEASE NOTE: This course includes both a ticket price and a program fee. The fee covers the cost of tools, materials, and the model boat kit that you’ll be building. To register, please purchase the appropriate ticket for each person in your group, plus the Program Fee for each boat your group would like to build.

For example, if a single adult wanted to participate they would purchase one adult ticket and one program fee. If a family of four were building a single boat, they would purchase two adult tickets, two child tickets, and one program fee.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please call Mark Arduini at (757) 591-7749.
