May 7 | 12pm | 211 Water Street | Free
Looking for a special Mother’s Day gift? Come to Bowne & Co. to join the talented designers in creating a festive card using the Museum’s 19th century historical printing equipment. In this two-hour workshop, you are invited to get hands-on throughout the printing process, and will get to see how the designers at Bowne use the Seaport Museum’s working collection. While you’re at the Museum, check out the wide array of unique products available at the Bowne & Co. Gift Emporium to find something special for mom.
Want to include mom in the experience? Invite her to join in the festivities and attend the program together. Throughout the afternoon you’ll make memories to last a lifetime.
Advanced registration is suggested for this free workshop but walk-ups will be accommodated as possible and drop-ins are welcome. Anyone ages 12 and up is welcome. All participants get to take home the cards they print during the afternoon. Can’t stay the full 2 hours? No problem! Leaving a bit early is fine, but you might miss out on taking home something special for mom.
Extend Your Visit
Before and after the workshop, participants are invited to take advantage of Pay What You Wish General Admission to the Seaport Museum. General Admission includes access to three gallery exhibitions at 12 Fulton Street as well as a walk through Wavertree at whatever price is right for you––the full ticket price, free in-person admission, or any amount in between.
