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). 



Please note: Gallery Admission is not required. Participants may purchase admission at a discounted rate.


Fleet Members can always enjoy access to the exhibit galleries with their current membership pass. Members must purchase Make-It tickets at the ticket counter.


Quantities are limited and may not be available the day of the activity. Sign up early to secure your spot!
