We are excited to announce our group booking option! If you have a group of 5 or more, we are now offering the option to book your group as a Table Captain*. 


Table Captains are perfect for birthday parties, bachelorette parties, a girls day out, or an outing with the guys!


Become a Table Captain today and learn a new skill while having fun with family, friends or co-workers!


* 5 people to a table. You may reserve more than 5 spots but you will not be guaranteed a table designated to your group. You may reserve 5 or more spaces for any of the classes listed. 




Call us at 941-708-6120 to reserve your table.

We will then create a ticket for you in the class where you may pay the deposit.*
* Based on the price of the class. 


By paying this deposit you are agreeing that The Folk School at Florida Maritime Museum will reserve a table for you. The total cost for the table will be determined during the setup and must be paid 10 business days before the class date.


Failure to recruit other students and/or pay the remaining balance will cause a forfeit of your deposit. Otherwise, the deposit will be applied towards the total cost of the table. Deposits and cancellations are non-refundable.


Your group will be sharing the class with other guests.
