Starting in the fall, the club conducts weekly workshops during which members produce shell art and jewelry items, under the direction of table leaders. Tables include flowers, holiday, home decor, jewelry, and critters. Craft and jewelry materials are provided by the club, and all projects completed at workshops are sold to raise money for scholarships and grants. Members are encouraged to bring their own glue guns--7/16" diameter glue sticks are provided. Organize your workshop kit which may also include scissors, pliers, tweezers, wire cutters, scraping tools, Exacto knife, and assorted specialty tools for the table at which you choose to work.
Scientific consultation is provided to identify and categorize local shells. Books in artistic and scientific categories are available for loan to members. Tips will be given on how to exhibit a project for both the artistic and scientific divisions in the March Shell Show.
