The Nantucket Historical Association has announced their summer Decorative Arts schedule. I will be instructing sailor’s valentine classes the week of August 14-18, 2023.
The first class is Aug. 14-16 which is a 3 day class to complete an 8″ valentine. All materials are provided. The White Shell Garland class will concentrate on creating raised shell work around the border. We will also have time to experiment with wired shell work.
The second class, Nantucket Rose, is Aug. 17. It is a one day class to complete a 6″ valentine. A great time to introduce you to this art form. All materials are provided.

The Class schedule dates have been announced for NHA’s Decorative Arts Sessions. This year my classes will be held the week of Aug. 15.
Monday – Wednesday, Aug 15-17 for the 3 day class. We will be concentrating on clean lines with spine shells and fancier flowers. For those that have the time I will add instructions to wire shells to enhance the floral leaves and border design. Learn to put holes in shells and wire the shells to create fancy leaf patterns. I will bring several sizes of shells to choose from.
Thursday, Aug 18 for the one day class completing a 6” valentine using a mandala pattern. Again there may be time to enhance your pattern with tiny flowers. See Photos.
