As Tim Gunn is fond of saying, “Make. It. Work!” And that’s the idea behind our Make-It Workshop, a creative and interactive workshop for innovators and other curious minds. We invite you to stop by Studio X (formerly Tinkering Studio) on Saturdays to try your hand at making. You can make anything from hydraulic arms to camera obscuras for optimal eclipse viewing. Make-It Workshop activities change monthly and fees vary. Open to makers of all ages (makers 12 and under with an adult collaborator). 

Participants can purchase tickets at Studio X the day of the workshop. Workshop capacity is limited.
