We’re excited to present a one-off TechARTS for Girls* class with our artist in resident Stella Marrs! ONE DAY ONLY! Open to all girls, ages 10-16!

“Calling All Girls that want to make a blow-up inflatable on Saturday afternoon!
This 3-hour workshop is for up to 6 girls to design and make an inflatable out of silver mylar, tape and fans.
We will meet and design inflatables together that we will make on the spot and see blown up before we depart this workshop.
Come with ideas, willing to make new friends and work quickly together to make a shiny and spectacular inflatable!” – Stella Marrs
