Ditty Bags Maritime Workshop: August 19, 2019
Interested in learning the traditional sewing skills of sailors and taking home your very own ditty bag? Join us at the Lewes History Museum for our first Maritime Workshop.
Ditty Bags and sea bags were a vital part of a sailor’s personal kit for centuries. These bags, historically made by or issued to sailors, would contain each sailor’s personal belongings, tools, and clothing, and often travel with them from ship to ship.
This workshop is open to participants ages 12 and up. No previous sewing experience is required and all materials are provided. The cost per participant is $40.00 per kit, with all proceeds going towards continued programming at the Lewes Historical Society, and you will get to take home your own ditty bag.
This program will take place August 19, 2019 at the Lewes History Museum, from 10 AM to approximately 1 PM.
