The Great Lakes Naval Station's museum will hold a children's program from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 introducing participants to soap scrimshaw.
For the uninitiated, scrimshaw is the traditional sailor art of decorative carving on whalebone. During this event children will have a chance to design and create their own soap scrimshaw.
This event is free and all materials are provided. The naval museum is near Great Lakes' main gate off Sheridan Road.
