Traditional Shipbuilding Program & Demonstration: September 16, 2019
Shipbuilding has been an inherent part of the history and economy of Lewes, with ships built and launched from this seaport since the 17th century. Learn about the history of Shipbuilding in Lewes as we celebrate this trade with a live demonstration of the techniques used to make a ship’s spar using period tools and techniques.
Additionally, younger visitors can work alongside museum staff to build and paint their own replica wooden vessels.
This program is suitable for families, both adults and children. Pre-registration fee of $5.00 is suggested for younger visitors interested in building and painting vessels.
This program will take place September 16, 2019 at the Lewes History Museum, from 10 AM to 4 PM.
