Enter the World of Makers!

Want to be a maker? All you need is some paper (and some other odds and ends).

Summer is a great time to slow down, explore hobbies, learn new skills, and discover the direction of your passions. Not sure where to start? Stop by the depot and discover the world of paper construction and modeling. Set aside an hour and we’ll show you the basics. There is no charge (although a donation to the depot is always welcome). Try your hand at paper modeling and discover a whole new way to look at uses of paper (and cardboard boxes and odds and ends and…).

This summer, we are setting aside the miniatures and building Hogwarts and other assorted other structures, machines, contraptions, and whatever else occurs to us) in the depot.

While we are not holding “formal” classes this summer, we are opening up our workshop (located up the stairs and behind Whistle Stop Books) and inviting families to stop by and learn something about paper modeling and scale. The workshop will be open to the public most afternoons, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
