Family Fun Day:  Building Boats with James Lake

Family Fun Day: Building Boats with James Lake - Topsham Museum

Added: 24 August 2018

Messing about with boats proved an enjoyable experience for children and adults of all ages when they came to the Museum Family Activity Day, lead by the sculptor, James Lake. James had prepared amazing card templates for three different kinds of 3D boats that everyone could choose, decorate and then assemble. The Tea Room became an intense area of concentration, creativity and excitement as the boats were constructed.

The morning session was very crowded and busy but thanks to James’ organisation and the skill of the volunteers and the other adults, everyone finished a boat to take home. The afternoon was less crowded but equally focused and more beautifully decorated craft were produced. It was fascinating to see the different ways in which the boats were finished off. James was a very creative event organiser and we are all looking forward to the next one ‘Fish’ which he will be presenting on Friday 26th of October.
