The Workshop

The Workshop is The Works Museum’s new creative space for families.

Whether you’ve got a young maker in your home who likes sewing, building, art, carpentry, and making in general or are looking for a great weekend family activity, classes in The Workshop are for you. Enjoy quality time together, learn a new skill (or enjoy using a favorite talent), and make a project to take home.

I did the class while my child was in camp. 🙂 I was happily surprised to realize I was sewing a backpack from scratch. Instructors were great with options and suggestions.

The maker space is great. We spent our entire visit making origami lanterns and pieces for the mural.
