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.

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.

The event is for adults only, max capacity 15 people.


Member Pricing: $85 or $90 (depending on membership level)

Non-Member Pricing: $100 per person
