The Sailing Museum & National Sailing Hall of Fame

Wednesday, May 15 10am - 12:30pm


While giant kelp canopies can hinder any boat’s trajectory through the water, sailors can also have an immense appreciation for this aquatic foliage. Admired for its beauty, seaweed was once regularly pressed into scrapbooks with other mementos during the Victorian era.

Join artist Mary Jameson of Saltwater Studio Newport in the Mosbacher Room at The Sailing Museum & National Sailing Hall of Fame as she guides aspiring artists on making two pressings of seaweed that can be framed and hung in their homes once the drying process is complete.

The event is for adults only. Tickets are $85 or $90 for members of the museum; $100 for non-members. Please note, tickets are non-transferrable and no refunds are accepted.  Space is limited to 15 people, so be sure to register today!
