    Make your own sailor craft inspired by Cutty Sark's figurehead.

    Sailors often used their off-duty hours aboard ship to do hand crafts, and were prolific in carving, knotting, sewing and tattooing.

    These men worked with what they could find. They shopped or traded for materials and scavenged for shipboard scraps.

    Sailors used their craft skill for utility, for their personal enjoyment and for the benefit of others.
