Što ćete raditi

I will explain the history of the art of scrimshaw from early whaling to modern. I explain the materials used and the laws governing the materials. Guests will be shown examples of all materials such as whale teeth and woolly mammoth ivory as well as several 19c original sailor made artifacts such as a whalebone fid, clothes pin and sailmakers seam rubber.

We then will take a studio tour of my work space where I will show guests how to prepare materials for engraving. We will sand and polish an antique piano key ivory so it is ready to engrave. Afterwards I will demonstrate the art of engraving step by step before instructing guests how to make their own piece of scrimshaw. You will leave with a finished piece along with a small bag of ancient mammoth ivory, a scribe and ink to continue creating scrimshaw at home.

I am a scrimshaw artist. Scrimshaw is the art of engraving on ivory or bone originally made by the American whalers in their idol time on board ships while hunting for whales as early as the 18 th c.

I apprenticed with my brothers while in college and I opened my first store in Baltimore, MD in 1982. I then relocated to Newport in 1986 to my store located on Bowen’s Wharf. I make all of the scrimshaw jewelry and knives in the store.

We had an excellent experience with Brian. He shared stories, answered questions and taught us lots of things about scrimshaw. We learned how to carve on a nut and old piano key and have practice materials to take home. Very unique experience that I highly recommend.

Wow! Such a great thing to do while in the Rhode Island area! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the art of scrimshaw and we also learned quite a bit about the whaling industry. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something unique to do!

My daughter and I had a great experience. Brian was so informative and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the class. We loved our kits that we were sent home with. My daughter started right away when we came home. A must try for whomever has an internal artist living within them!
