Class Experience

Drop your kids at the shop for a day of good old-fashioned making and doing. Each day off is a different art, craft, or DIY theme that will keep your child happy & engaged. We provide loads of creative fun, outdoor playtime & a safe, supportive atmosphere for exploration. 


Register by the day 


Thanksgiving: Nov. 22nd-26th (Closed Thursday) 

  • Monday: Balance Boards: We'll learn basic woodworking techniques when we build our own wooden balance boards. Makers will sand, assemble, and paint their rockin' balance boards. 
  • Tuesday: Scrapwood City: We'll use all sorts of scrap wood to create a set of buildings. Makers will imagine their scene, then design, cut, sand, and paint their set. Take them home for hours of imaginative fun.
  • Wednesday: Attitude of Gratitude: This is our annual day of gratitude. Makers will be tasked to think about the people in their lives that they're grateful for while they create fabric banners, centerpieces, and or their own thoughtful gifts of gratitude. 
  • Thursday: CLOSED 
  • Friday: Wide open whatever! We'll provide all the craft supplies your kiddo needs for a day of open-ended build-play. We'll also provide loads of support and idea starters. Nothing bigger than a bread box goes home:).

Complete with DIY wrapping paper.
