The H. Lee White Marine Museum and the Oswego Railroad Museum are offering “Beginning Model Building Workshops.”

This instructional program is offered in a series of Sunday workshops beginning Feb. 17 from 1 to 3 p.m.

The first workshop is titled, “An Introduction to Model Building,” and will discuss the use of a variety of materials used in the building of a model, as well as safety concerns.

The second session, March 3, “Assembling your Model,” will show participants how to apply paints and decals.

The third session, March 10, “Show and Tell” participants will show their final product, discuss other models and finish with a tour of the Oswego Railroad Museum.

The instructors are longtime model builders from the Oswego Railroad Museum and Association. Participants are encouraged to bring a model to work on.

“This is another great partnership between our two museums,” said Mercedes Niess, executive director of the H. Lee White Marine Museum. “We are pleased to offer the space for this series. We have wanted to offer such programs for a number of years now. This is a great hobby to introduce to young people.”

The series is appropriate for ages 10 to adult. A small fee will be charged for the series.

Those seeking more information or to make reservations may call the marine museum at 342-0480.
