Sending sincere warmth and good wishes to our guests and tinkers for joy in the coming weeks.
With your health foremost in our thoughts, we have no in-person shopping or events planned for November or December 2020.
Ideas continue to grow with plans for 2021 including videos, workshops, Craftboxes, and STEAM projects.
Sign up to hear about sales, upcoming workshops, and more!
We play and learn all day, every day. The shelves are filled with fun and enriching activities packed up and ready to go. Drop in for a quick craft done in under an hour or sign up for a Party Workshop with kids or just adults. Visit our Craft Counter called
The Apothacrafty® to fill your personalized CraftBOX or have our
Tinker Experts™ magically guide you to your STEAM Creativity Calling. At any age, CraftBox is "what to do" .
Can a store be more than just a place to buy supplies? Absolutely! Come play at our creativity tables. Fill your own take away box or choose one of dozens of prepackaged kits on topics of science, technology, engineering, art and math. We love rainy days when slime is always on hand. We offer workshops and a full line of ready to go enrichment for guest 1 to 100 years of age .
We are makers and artists, scientists and explorers, just like you! Be sure to let us know what you are working on. Send us a picture of your finished project and feedback on how the materials worked. Your work could be in our next gallery show!
The position of Tinker is varied. It includes traditional Shop Keeper duties as well as the opportunity to design and direct workshops for adults and kids and be on hand for walk in projects and custom CraftBox creation. This position is ideal for students focused on Science, Art, or Early Education as well as current teachers and seniors. We invite independent thinkers and creators to approach us with ideas of how our space can help advance their vocation. We are always willing to discuss these positions regardless of current openings
The position of visiting artist is always open. Ideal for creators looking to partner their skills and portfolios with our space, we encourage you to contact us with your ideas on presenting the community to you and your work. Past visiting artists have included vinyl board creators, jewelers, painters, and aeronautical experts.
