What you'll learn in this crafts class:

Make your valentine a truly unique gift this year. Instructor Becky Sellinger will guide students through a 1-day class making sailor's valentines. A sailor's valentine is a form of shellcraft originally made between 1830 and 1890, and they were designed to be brought home from a sailor's voyage at sea and given to a loved one. Students will craft traditional sailor's valentines which are typically octagonal, glass fronted, hinged wooden boxes displaying intricate symmetrical designs composed entirely of small sea shells of various colors glued onto a backing. 

Patterns often feature a centerpiece such as a compass rose or a heart design, hence the name. In some cases the small shells are used to spell out a motto or sentimental message. 

Materials fee to be paid directly to the school on the first day of class.
