Traditional Lobster Trap Making


Mar 9, 2018
05:00 PM until 08:00 PM


In what is sure to be a true Essex experience we are privileged to have John S., a fourth generation lobsterman, here with us to instruct guests in this seafaring tradition. Guest will be regaled by John's instruction, conversation, and colorful interaction, during their time building a wooden lobster trap to take home. Turn it into a bedside table, a seacoast front yard treasure or use it with your kids. No matter what you choose to do with your finished trap, you will have a deeper appreciation for the history and skills embedded in our local lobstering traditions. Materials and tools will be provided and reflected in class cost.
