Makers Open Studio

Make together as a family! Our studio is open for your creativity. Use our space, supplies, and tools to follow your imagination. Staff is on hand to help you brainstorm and problem solve. We're happy to teach you new techniques. If you aren't sure what you want to make, our staff is prepared to lead 2 projects each week (one will lean toward art and the other toward the engineering sides of STEAM). The entire space is open during these times. Create a magnetic ball run on our large metal wall. Record your own stop-motion animation short film. Build in our large cardboard construction area. Design something to fly in the wind towers. Play with our logic and thinking toys. Cost: $20 for the first child, $10 for each additional child. Each child admission includes one adult. Additional adults are $5 each.
