Building Futures—————–Design Build Workshop

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 15 students taking place on Saturday   10:00 am-noon & 1:30 – 3:30. All classes are held at 2617 N 14th St., St. Louis, MO 63106
