Join us for some fun workshops geared towards our elementary-aged friends. Come just for one class or come for the whole series! Each Friday morning, our younger class will focus on a popular children’s book or movie through stories, crafts and games. On Friday afternoons, our older class will tinker, create and even have permission to take apart machines and get downright messy!
