Come join the conversation on the history of clamming in Essex, the build of an authentic clamming skiff by students from the Topsfield Vocational Academy and the making of clamming baskets.
The leaders of the project, Justin Demetri, Jeff Lane, Mark Webster, Chris Stepler, and Susannah Winder will host a conversational lecture where derailing the conversation is most definitely encouraged! Come with your curiosity and you won’t be disappointed.
The fun begins at 7PM on December the 18th at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. Tickets are are available on our website: https://www.essexshipbuilding.org/museum-store/frame-up-to-fit-out-1 or at the door – $10 for non-members and $8 for members.
