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.

Pop-Up Activities

Pop-Up Engineering and STEAM activities will be taking place in the Workshop all summer long. Find out more about these and other summer engineering activities here.

  • Can my child attend on their own? Some classes require an adult/child pair. Other classes are suitable for kids to take without an adult; however, an adult must stay on site for the duration of the class. Check the class description for the class you are interested in to see if it requires an adult/child pair.

  • Can I just watch my child take the class? If it’s a class that children can take without an adult, you are welcome to observe the class from outside the glass gate.

We love all the hands-on items! These stations are great. Love the ability for all learning levels to benefit.

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.
