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.

Saturday Crafternoons promote hands-on learning and community engagement for youth in grades K-5 through free, drop-in workshops with local makers and community partners.

Check the Calendar for the upcoming Crafternoons or check out our Facebook event for more details!

Saturdays (Grades K-5), 1-3 pm

Not able to come to Assemble each week but still want to participate? Drop in to Saturday Crafternoons! Every Saturday, young Assemblers come together to learn new STEAM skills, experiment with materials, and make community connections! Each week, our workshop is led by a different “Guest Expert” who shares their craft with students, giving them the chance to build their own confidence through making. No registration required!
