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!


MakeSpace times are 11am-3pm, except on 
Sundays, they are 12-3pm.

*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.

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!
