Maritime Workshops at Harbor History Museum

Maritime Workshop Series...experience history!

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at woodworking but needed a "guiding hand"? Wanted to create something special from a piece of wood?  Then we have an excellent opportunity for you to experience history!

The Harbor History Museum is hosting a series of maritime-themed workshops led by our shipwright Nate Slater. These hands-on classes provide one-on-one instruction in a variety of woodworking techniques. 

Know someone who has everything?  The workshops make great Christmas gifts as well, for older teens and adults, male and female. Participants will learn basic woodworking techniques…plus take home a beautiful half-model of the Shenandoah, or have his/her very own skiff. 

We have gift certificates available at the museum for any of the workshops if you want to give a truly unique holiday gift this season. If you would like a certificate, give us a call at 253-858-6722, ext. 5, or stop by the museum at 4121 Harborview Drive!

Classes are small to allow one-on-one interaction with Nate.
