The Mermaid Factory is an engaging activity for the entire family at the oceanfront. You begin with a blank mermaid or dolphin sculpture and choose your paints, materials, and decorations, then you’re on your way to a one-of-a-kind souvenir to take home with you from your trip. All mermaids and dolphin sculptures are handmade right here in Coastal Virginia of a durable casting plaster that works perfectly with whatever decorations you choose. And you get to take it home in a custom box that day. Complimentary wine is included in your studio fee.
