The Scrimshaw Workshop
Visiting the Scrimshaw Workshop (Main Street in Bar Harbor opposite the Village Green) one realizes that quality craftsmanship is the hallmark of this unique shop. The whalers’ art of scrimshaw is this shop’s specialty, but it also offers Bar Harbor’s most extensive selection of gifts and crafts by Maine artisans. Here, in an attractive gallery setting, one finds a price range to suit every pocketbook.
Many scrimshaw collectors who visit the shop comment that this is the best collection of quality scrimshaw in the country. All pieces including men’s and lady’s jewelry, knives and collectable display pieces are strictly hand-engraved by owner Chris Cambridge or by other top scrimshanders from around the country. As a purist and conservationist, there are two things Chris won’t carry - imitation plastic “scrimshaw” or elephant ivory. Instead he displays the most beautiful and fascinating of scrimshaw mediums - centuries-old Fossil Walrus and even older Woolly Mammoth ivory excavated from Alaska’s deep perma-frost.
When the visitor to Bar Harbor wishes to bring home a gift hand-crafted in Maine (not China) - this is the place to buy it. The Scrimshaw Workshop carries a superb collection of hand-thrown pottery, exquisite watercolors by Maine artist Marvin Jacobs, and many gifts depicting Maine’s most celebrated subject: the lighthouse.
Some of the other most popular and unique items offered by The Scrimshaw Workshop include wooden ship models, beautiful Acadia National Park photos, hand-blown glass, and last but not least, the very popular Ikebanas by Georgetown Pottery.
So please stop in and browse, 150 Main Street, where the artistic past and the colorful present come together. 207-288-4380
