Ship in a bottle class
Ship in a Bottle Classes
Our Model Guild member Bob Little, who specializes in building ships in bottles, has designed a very simple example of this art. He designed this so we can offer a short course to kids eleven to ninety-nine.
We offer this course to Boys and Girls clubs, Scout groups, and any organization that works with groups of children.
We have found that eleven years old is a reasonable minimum age for this project especially because of the thread tying required. We recommend groups of eight or less.
The project can be accomplished in two three-hour sessions, and the kids go home with their own completed ship in a bottle. We can hold these sessions at the museum or at the location of the children's organization.
