Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve.

Check the schedule for class dates and times.
At theMAKEshop, busy hands craft eye-catching decorations and functional works of art such as bird feeders and etched glass tumblers. With an eye toward usability, kids’ class topics avoid stale projects like macaroni sculptures of the Constitution, skewing instead toward valuable, entertaining life skills such as fashion design and programming a robot to do daily chores. Adult workshops transform garage-sale finds into custom-designed dinnerware by dot-painting china, while magazine-decoupaged vase projects juxtapose the natural beauty of floral arrangements with jarring images of photoshopped celebrity faces.
Originally party planners, theMAKEshop’s crafty creators infuse workshops with a sense of casual festivity, inviting adults to BYOB and kids to BYOJuiceBox. All classes foster interactive sociability through shared learning, creative expression, and using only left-handed scissors.
