CBMM offers woodworking, new boat shop programs

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD has announced a new fall series of programs in the museum’s boat shop. The public programs begin September 14 and continue through November 23, with limited space and pre-registration needed.

CBMM’s Friday Open Boat Shop program takes place on September 14 and 28, October 26, and November 9 and 23, and invites members of the public to work on a small woodworking project of their own, or to bring ideas for a future project. Participants will receive the advice and guidance of an experienced shipwright and woodworker and can expect assistance with CBMM’s machinery and tools, plans, measurements, and the execution of their small-scale project. Small-scale projects could include plans for a small gift, frames, furniture, models, artwork, and more. The Friday Open Boat Shop program runs from 5:30-8:30pm and costs $20 per session for CBMM members and $30 per session for non-members. Space is limited with pre-registration required by calling 410-745-4941. Participants must be 16 or older, unless accompanied by an adult.

On Thursday, September 20 from 6:30-8pm, Woodcuts with Kevin Garber offers the opportunity to meet the master printmaker as he demonstrates and discusses the proper techniques for duplicating a print from an early 1960s Philip McMartin wood cut. Garber’s work can be found in the Kemper Art Museum and Island Press at Washington University, as well as in collections throughout the country, including the Whitney Art Museum in New York City, and in CBMM’s new exhibit, Push and Pull: Life on Chesapeake Bay Tugboats. The cost is $25 for CBMM members and $35 for non-members, with space limited and pre-registration required by calling 410-745-4941.

Mid Shore Mediation Offers Training For New Mediators

Mid Shore Community Mediation Center is offering free training for new volunteers who wish to become mediators. Basic Mediation Training will be held during the first three weekends in November. Introductory orientations will be offered in September for those enrolling.

Mediation Center Executive Director Peter Taillie described the Basic Mediation Training course as intense and interactive. The 45 hours of training will be conducted over three consecutive weekends beginning November 6, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturdays and Sundays, with breakfast, lunch and snacks provided. No more than one hour can be missed to complete the course.

The training will be conducted by Errika Bridgeford from Community Mediation Maryland. “Errika is one of the best mediation trainers in the country,” said Taillie. Bridgeford takes participants through extensive role playing in fast-paced, counter-intuitive sessions designed to teach mediators how to listen and reflect back, rather than advising and judging during mediations.

Volunteers learn skills such as active listening, positive reframing of topics and de-escalation of high-intensity situations, allowing them to guide participants in mediations through a process that brings parties to their own resolution of conflicts and voluntary agreements. Two volunteers conduct each mediation, making sure that each individual’s concerns are heard and understood.

“We are looking for a diverse group of trainees who are dedicated to giving back to their communities,” explained Taillie. Mid Shore Community Mediation Center serves Caroline, Dorchester and Talbot counties, offering no-cost conflict resolution for a wide range of issues.
