Saturday Crafternoons promote hands-on learning and community engagement through free, drop-in workshops with local makers and community partners. Each month, we’ll host a series of fun, educational workshops that involve collaboration, skill-building, and neighborhood connections. Weekly attendance isn’t required, but it’s encouraged!
In March, we’re partnering with Pittsburghers for Public Transit (PPT) and local artists for a series of bus-themed projects! On March 7th and 14th, we’ll work with local cartoonist and printmaker Juan Fernandez to design and screen print bus posters and transit comics. Then, on March 21st and March 28th, we’ll work with a local game designer to design, build, and play our own transit themed board games. We’ll map out bus routes, laser cut game pieces, and more!
