Just received another delivery of these amazing melamine trays. It features a fantastic image of a whale which is based on the scrimshaw art which was practiced by sailors out at sea on whaling ships many years ago. Something about the whale reminds me of school trips to Natural History Museum and this gigantic live sized model of a blue whale on display.

Unfortunately that memory also made me remember the awful packed lunch we were forced to eat at gunpoint on the lawns outside the museum (spam sandwiches on white bread all round). Anyway.... I found this video clip of what must be a retired CDT teacher explaining how to make your own scrimshaw pieces

We also have dinner plates too! the tray and the plates are available in store and on our online shop www.maidenshop.com
