Belfast, Maine -

Enjoy tea, chocolate and romantic sea stories while learning to make a "sailor's valentine" at Penobscot Marine Museum on February 12.

BELFAST – For a memorable Valentine’s Day gift, learn how to make a “sailor’s valentine” while enjoying tea, chocolate, and stories of maritime romance from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 12 at Penobscot Marine Museum.

In the museum class, participants will assemble sea shells (and personal photos, if desired) in glass-fronted frames. The museum will provide examples and materials. Although typical sailors’ valentines held only shells and photographs, participants may bring small personal objects to incorporate for a contemporary approach.

The $40 registration fee includes materials and refreshments. Museum members receive a 10 percent discount. To register, contact Education Director Betty Schopmeyer: bschopmeyer@pmm-maine.org or 548-2529 ext. 206.
