Educator Support & Professional Development
We’re here to support your big ideas and goals. We work with teachers and schools to develop working practices that enable hands-on integrated work to happen safely and effectively. We offer professional development, coaching, and co-teaching experiences. Contact us to chat about how we can help!
Let's make things, together.
We are a team of experienced arts educators and craftspeople with a passion for building creative minds. We put real tools, a little danger, fabulous materials, creative-play, and real life skills within reach for thousands of kids each year.
Since the pandemic, we have doubled our focus on supporting kids. We believe deeply in the power of creative work especially when facilitated by caring, knowledgeable, and kind humans. Making things is part of life, making things together makes us human.
What we do
FIELD TRIPS, ENRICHMENT, & MORE
This might be our favorite part! Working directly with school children ages 4-18 is our jam. Facilitated by our dedicated team, we host dozens of school-based workshops each week.
Both in-shop and off-site, we offer one-time, week-long, or ongoing experiences that connect to student learning.
We also provide after school enrichment programs as well a school-day programming.
Let's talk about how we can support your makers!

CURRICULUM & PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
Let us help you develop creative curriculum. We work with schools and organizations to develop sustaining creative practices based on our Shop Model and years of experience in writing creative curriculum that is engaging, content-aligned, and uniquely tailored to the needs of the community. We combine craft, art, play, and design in a way that speaks to the creative potential of all students. We go beyond traditional arts education to create programming that speaks to the maker in all of us.
BEAUTIFUL & FUNCTIONAL WORK SPACES
Go Big! Learning happens best in beautiful and functional space. We designed and built our shop from scratch and we’ve designed collaborative spaces for Downtown Denver Expeditionary School, Fairview Elementary, Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy, as well as for private clients including sensory informed spaces.
We know how people work and all of our spaces are designed to maximize creative work potential.
