Maker Mornings & Innovation Lab Workshops

Making is a way of thinking, of using familiar objects in unfamiliar ways, of focusing on the process rather than the end result.

Explore hands-on skills during drop-in Maker Mornings, and take the skills you learned in the morning to the next level during Innovation Lab Workshops! Held Monday through Saturday during the summer.

  • Maker Mornings – Try skills ranging from sewing to coding – and everything in between! Drop-in activities are held in the Makers Studio every Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am - noon. Each week has a different theme!
  • Innovation Lab Workshops – Use tools and materials to create a project based on the weekly theme. Workshops are open to all ages, but parent supervision is required for children under 13. Workshops are free!
    • Monday through Thursday - 1:00 pm
    • Friday - 11:00 am
    • Saturday - 11:00 am and 1:00 pm
