Day one on the LV21 lightship

Our week long residency on the beautiful LV21 Lightship opened today with magical mermaids enchanting us with the singing deep down in the ship...

We feel so lucky to be in such lovely surroundings. We set up our shop in the radio room, and brooch making in the lookout, and enjoyed amazing views from the end of Gillingham Pier.

We ran a print your own tea towel workshop in the stern where everyone made amazing printed tea towels, from our youngest nautical knot inspired printer...

to our lovely fishy printer...
We set up installations in the boiler rooms and cabins...

and installed our vintage seaside souvenir collection and shop in the control room.

We even have signal flag treasure hunt!

Thank you to everyone that visited today. We are open all day the rest of the week, and on Saturday. Drop in for souvenirs, Seaside Sisters shop, brooch and pennant making and to enjoy this very special ship and some of the hidden treasures we have created for you deep in the engine rooms. We are easy to find, a 10 minute walk from Gillingham station to the Pier or follow the signs to Gillingham Pier, off the A289.
