Workshops for grown ups. Dip your toe in the maker world with one of our heritage craft inspired workshops. We believe there are few things better that learning new skills alongside great people in a beautiful space. We offer a variety of workshops for adults each month. We hire the best local craftspeople and help them to put together workshops that are engaging, fun, and full of useful info. You’ll walk away with some new skills and a finished project to be proud of. No experience necessary. Just bring yourself, maybe a friend or two, and your curiosity. We’ll take care of the rest. We also book private workshops for parties of 5-25. Weekday, evenings, and brunch bookings available. Look here for more info.
We love the homeschool/unschool crowd around here. Bring us your smart independent kids for a day of making + doing. We are happy to book homeschool groups and activities on alternative days/times. Private lessons or groups up to 20. Have older kids? Reach out for more information on our pre-teen and teen programs.
Make + Do We believe in the power of creative play and building self sufficiency through heritage craft traditions like woodworking and fiber arts. All of our program offerings are based on the notion that kids are smart and capable of some pretty tough work. Pair that hard work with creativity and the freedom to make mistakes, and you've got a place where kids thrive on making and doing. When kids explore materials, ideas, and techniques in a safe place, they can both succeed and fail with the confidence of knowing that it's all part of the process. We've taken what we know from more than a dozen years working with kids and created programming that speaks to the craftsperson in all of us. Join us for a Friday Tinker session our new after school series. MORE WAYS TO MAKEGot an idea? Looking for programming for toddlers + teens? Reach out + let's make it happen.
