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!

May 19: Paper Weaving 

Explore the third dimension though weaving.  Participants will use two pieces of colored construction paper to produce an optical illusion in a woven paper mat. This project is a great introduction to textile weaving for younger students or someone with no weaving experience. Weaving is one of the most ancient forms of human creativity. Baskets and textiles would not have been possible without weaving.
