Let's MAKE Something!

This program, led by Artist-in-Residence Amanda Wilkening, encourages children and their parents to design, tinker, experiment and create using new and special tools. From electric scissor to easels, and from silk screen presses to sewing machines, the MakeSpace is a place where you can roll up your sleeves and make something!

Special Friday Hours: 1-4pm from April 21-June 23
Saturdays: 11am-3pm
Sundays: 12-3pm

Sewing machines, robots, electric scissors, circuits, glue guns, light-up LEDs, and our popular silkscreen press. Watch for soldering irons - coming soon!

Our Young Makers STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) education program is undergoing a major expansion! We've re-imagined the MakeSpace as a permanent addition to the Arts & Parts Studio. By adding a door to the adjacent activity room, we've created a new dedicated space for more in-depth Making. Visit our exciting addition!



Tinkering in the MakeSpace:



STEM activities, including MakeSpace are sponsored by Saint Martin's University.

On silkscreen days in the MakeSpace, you can print a custom t-shirt, onesie or tote bag for just $8.50 each!
