A message from the Maritime Museum about their ‘Make do and Maintain’ Saturday club

Date and time:

Third Saturday of every month | 10.30am-12.00 (Starts 15 th February 2020)




Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre

Join our community of makers at the Prince Philip Maritime Collection Centre.

Ever wondered how to keep your silver shining or how to mount a picture? Join us as we build a community of makers and menders. This is a club for old and young to share current skills and discover new ones.  One of our experts will lead this monthly club, show casing a specific skill or technique that could be used to look after your own objects at home.

At this cross-generational club, the participants will see a new skill presented each month by a local specialist. Participants will also get to meet like-minded peers, work on exciting team and individual projects, and learn new skills from each other.

The Monthly club will consist of 90 minutes of activities and demonstrations. Our knowledgeable and friendly mentors will support you whilst you try out different tasks and projects.
