design in miniature! create your own composition, people, furniture and accessories.

for anyone in 3rd-5th grades

*also offered for our K-2nd grades

This ever-popular theme translates perfectly to the make-at-home space. The idea behind the class is very open-ended and leaves lots of room for creativity and independent work. Each young maker starts with a set of nested boxes and assembles their own structure. (We’ve seen everything from an ice cream shop to a family home for aliens — their creativity constantly amazes us!) They think about setting, scale, and who they are designing it for. They plan out the surfaces and add extended spaces; they design the furniture and accessories; and they incorporate all sorts of clever engineering and decor. Plus, there are plenty of extra activites for making in miniature.

In addition to these fantastic miniature structures, projects inlcude tiny teepees, Dr. Seuss-inspired mini scenes, a family of peg people, and, of course, a few creative creatures. 

We send everything you need in a colorful, project-packed kit before the start of your session. This includes supplies for all 12 classes plus basic craft items like scissors, markers and glue. After-school classes take place twice a week (choose between Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs). Each class is one hour long and limited to 15 students.
