Shiver Me Timbers!

       The Star of the East Masonic Lodge will host a pirate ship-building workshop for dads, grandpas, uncles, and kids on Saturday at the East Hampton Town Marine Museum in Amagansett. Kids 8 to 10 and their adults will make replicas of the Black Diamond pirate ship and also have a chance to tour the museum and learn about East Hampton’s seafaring past. The program runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Reservations have been requested at 907-3500.


Creature Feature

       Dogs with wings? Giraffes with trunks? A monkey with zebra stripes? Using plaster gauze, children 4 and older will create creatures from their own imaginations during an art program at the East Hampton Library on Saturday. Joyce Raimondo will lead the workshop, which runs from 2 to 3 p.m.

       On Wednesday, kids the same age can mold their own birdfeeders during a program from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Reservations are required for both.



       Pasta is on the menu at the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton on Saturday, when 2 to 6-year-olds will mix, knead, and shape their own pasta from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. The cost is $23 including museum admission, or $12 for members.

       Ralph Carpentier, a landscape painter, will guide children 6 to 10 in a color-mixing and painting session from 10 a.m. to noon that day. The workshop, which does not include museum admission, costs $14, or $10 for members. Advance registration is required.
