Build A Half-hull Model Oct 27 & 28

The Model Guild at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD will host a two-day, model-building workshop from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28. Participants will create a half-hull model of the Pride of Baltimore II. 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 fine 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 trade model building experience with CBMM visitors.

The cost for the October 27-28 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. Space is limited, with pre-registration required by Monday, October 22.
