History Makers in the Nantucket Tradition

View the current schedule

The History Makers Series connects objects from the NHA collections with its history, and the process of making the object. This provides participants a greater understanding and the significance of an object and its place in history.  Each session will have a visit to the NHA archives, or a lecture demonstration, led by NHA curators, archivists, and leaders in the field. The hands on maker sessions will provide students with firsthand experience in the process of making a sample piece of their own.

Become part of history and never again pass by an object without a new appreciation for its story and relevance to us today.

Examples of topics offered:

Botanical & Seaweed Journals

Nantucket Needlework

Shorebird and Decoy Carving

The Art of Scrimshaw  

Nantucket Lightship Baskets

Nantucket Silver
