Maker Space

An environment where children, teens, adults and families can tinker, design and create together. 

In our workshops we use real tools to make real things and re-use everyday materials in exciting ways. From woodworking and plaster casting to electronics and 3D printing, we encourage experimentation, open-ended exploration, and believe that making mistakes is a great way to learn.

Public workshops run Saturday and Sunday,
1:30 –3 pm & 3:30 – 5 pm.
