We have several new initiatives starting this fall. First, Boston Makers invites you two JP Open Studios events this coming weekend:
On Saturday, Sept. 20th from noon – 4:00 PM we’ll be folding origami boxes for an art installation that will be unveiled at 6:16 PM that night. We need at least 4 volunteers as we have to fold at least 125 boxes in four hours. Please stop by our table in front of the Blessed Sacrament Church at 350 Centre Street in Hyde Square between noon – 4:00 PM to learn how to fold an origami box or two.
On Sunday from noon – 4:00 PM we’ll be running a pop-up paper circuit workshop in front of the Blessed Sacrament Church. You’ll learn how to create a paper circuit lantern that you can take home to impress your friends. It’s a project that all ages will enjoy doing.
Also, we’re starting a Makers Club for kids 10+yrs on Sundays from 2:00 – 4:00PM starting on Sept. 28th which will be held at the Youth Community Development Center, behind the Blessed Sacrament Church, at 361 Centre Street in JP. We want this to be an opportunity where young makers can meet, learn, and get to make things. We’re asking for a small donation to cover the cost of supplies and advance reservations so we can make sure to have enough people on hand to help. Reserve your child’s spot by completing this form.
