I was thrilled to see that the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, NY is hosting a two-week long making workshop series for kids and families, August 13-27, 2012.
Examples of pop-up programming like this make me reflect on how libraries can borrow from the art + design community to pilot making programs. Pop-up programming models have the potential to get patrons really excited about opportunities (think summer reading program squished into two weeks) without the library having to risk a lot on scheduling out a year's worth of workshop leaders and supplies. And if it works? Change up the pop-up themes: 3D printing for one week, book arts for two weeks, slam poetry for two weeks, sound design for one week...the possibilities are endless.
Spread the word about the NYC Makery.
