30th Annual Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival
One of the nation’s premier small craft events! Hundreds of amateur and professional boat builders and enthusiasts come from all over the region to display their skiffs, kayaks, and canoes. Take part in demonstrations and workshops, or simply chat with the owners and watch these one-of-a-kind vessels race.
Half-Hull Model Workshop, presented by the Model Guild
Participants are invited to 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 Museum visitors.
