    Illuminated: Cozy conversations hosted by the Connecticut River Museum at the historic Lay-Masin House

    Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to explore the nautical history of rope-making and knots at the candle-lit historic Lay-Masin House. In this hands-on experience, Captain Dan Thompson and August Stromberger of the Connecticut River Museum will guide you through knot tying – both practical (bowline) and pretty (the Celtic love knot). Bring home all your knots as charming souvenirs.

    Surfridge Brewing Co., located at the Witch Hazel Works complex in Essex, is generously
    providing beer tastings for this event. Enjoy delicious brews while you learn your knots and
    snack on refreshments provided by the Museum.

    This is a limited-capacity event. Tickets must be purchased in advance through the Museum’s
    website: https://ctrivermuseum.org/events/tying-the-knot-an-intro-to-rope-making-and-nautical-knots/.

    Admission: Members- Free; Non-Members – $8.00
