Building Futures

We bring young people together on Saturdays, to invent, create, make with their hands. To work directly with the constraints and possibilities of structure & materials, space & light, program & context with teachers who will build with them and show them the ‘nuts and bolts.’

 

The Saturday BUILDING FUTURES WORKSHOP program will occur Saturdays during the academic year and summer. A typical workshop has 20 students taking place on Saturday   9:30 am-noon    All classes are free.
