Special July Workshop - Register in June
All ages, and especially adults and kids in grades 3-12 - Join us in the Studio 775 Makerspace to help create a tactile-accessible book.
We have partnered with Build a Better Book to design and create literacy materials accessible for people with print disabilities. We will be using various DIY materials and Makerspace technologies to create pages that represent lines from popular children's folk songs, such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" or "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
Visit our calendar to learn full details and to register. Registration opens in early June.
