Saturday Crafternoons

Saturday Crafternoons promote hands-on learning and community engagement for youth in grades 1-8 through free, drop-in workshops with local makers and community partners. Each month, we host a series of fun, educational STEAM workshops that involve collaboration, skill-building, and neighborhood connections. Our goal is to empower youth to be confident makers, foster a love of DIY projects, promote connected learning, and activate an interest in their community and city.

Check the Calendar for info on upcoming Crafternoons. Programs run from 1pm-4pm on Saturdays.
