Event Details

Learn about scrimshaw, a unique maritime art which encompasses the engraving of bone or ivory. Join Arbutus Folk School for a two-part introductory series starting Tuesday, July 18th 6-8pm. Explore the origins and rich history of scrimshaw as a folk art with an emphasis on the materials and tools traditionally used. Discover the techniques by which contemporary scrimshaw is created, to include preparing the engraving surface, design work, and the engraving process. All materials used are legally sourced.

This class is suitable for the complete beginner. All levels of experience are welcome and all supplies will be provided. Participants will leave with a finished piece, engraving tool and ink, and practice materials to continue creating unique works of scrimshaw art at home.
