Let's MAKE something!

This new 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!

Fridays & Saturdays: 11am-3pm (Tuesday-Saturday, March 25-April 15)
Sundays: 12-3pm (Sunday & Monday, March 25-April 15)

*We have special MakeSpace days and times during the summer and on holidays. Check out our Facebook page or calendar for the most up-to-the-minute program schedules.
