Fish print T-shirts at Coastal Children's Museum

Jan 10, 2014

Rockland — Coastal Children’s Museum will hold a special Gyotaku fish print T-shirt workshop Saturday, Jan. 18, from 11 a.m. to noon.

The art of Gyotaku traditionally involves painting a thin layer of paint on a freshly caught fish and then pressing a thin piece of paper over the top creating a print of a multi-colored fish. Participants in this workshop will not have to touch fresh fish, but will be using flexible foam molds instead to make the fishy T-shirts.

This program has been sponsored by the Coastal Children’s Museum’s two sponsors of the month for January: Rockland Savings Bank and Rockland Elks Lodge 1008. Because of their support, this workshop will be included in the price of admission and all materials including the T-shirt will be provided. Because of space limitations the workshops requires advanced registration and is limited to 12 children. Best for children 4 and up. Please email or call 596-0300 to sign up, remembering to include the child’s T-shirt size.
