SOLD OUT – Sewing Camp – Tinker @ MoB

Ages 8 – 12

1pm – 4pm

$225

In this fantastic week of Sewing Camp with Tinker Art Studio, we’ll teach both hand sewing and basic machine sewing. Working on machines, campers will learn to design and sew simple patterns–choosing from options such as an eye mask and brush or pen holder. Other projects will include sewing a pillow, an over-the-shoulder sling bag, and even designing and sewing a stuffed animal. After learning the basics of hand and machine sewing, this is a fantastic medium to continue working in long after camp ends! Be sure to mark your calendar to join us on Friday for our Art Show on the Rooftop of MoB at 3:45pm!

Summer Camp Field Trips

Summers are never boring here at the Museum! Take a break from the heat with our engaging and exciting group programs. First, you’ll spend an hour in our Pack It Up! exhibit, working in teams to solve unique challenges and learn about Boulder history through all the adventures Boulderites go on. Next you’ll get to tinker and create in our Google Garage, which has everything from hands-on crafts to virtual reality! You’ll finish up your visit in one of two exhibits, depending on your age. If your group is 7-years-old or younger, you’ll explore our a.MAZE.d exhibit and learn about famous mazes throughout history. If you’re older, you’ll see what makes Boulder, Boulder in the Boulder Experience, an interactive exhibit that tells the history of our city and invites you to participate in it!

 

Full scholarships are available for summer programs that serve underserved audiences. No application necessary for qualifying groups.

 

Programs are $90 per groups of 35, and last 2 hours.

 

Admission to the Museum is included in the program fee, so after you’re done, feel free to re-visit any of the exhibits, or enjoy our amazing view of downtown Boulder and the Flatirons from our rooftop terrace (which is also the perfect place for a snack or lunchtime break!).
