At The MAKESHOP Show,  we’re constantly dreaming up projects to get kid-makers motivated to invent, play and gain experience with new materials and tools. We find ideas of projects to develop for you in many different ways. One way is through Pinterest, a website to organize and share fascinating things on the web. It’s like an online pinboard. For a sneak peek at new project ideas, visit our MAKESHOP Show Pinterest Boards.

Once we choose ideas, we submit those ideas to a vote by kids! Stay tuned to http://www.makeshopshow.com for upcoming votes on future projects.

Email us YOUR ideas of things you want to learn how to make at info@makeshopshow.com.

Keep Calm and Make On!

About Amy
Amy is an educator and artist that works with weaving, dyeing, and installation. At her small business, The Dear Dyery, she creates hand-made accessories and wearables that she sews and dyes. Amy learned how to knit and sew as a preteen and was instantly hooked. Since then, she’s been taking art and craft classes, and showing her friends how to create simple projects. Naturally this led to becoming the Coordinator / Teaching Artist at the MAKESHOP. For the last two years, she’s been teaching kids how to hand sew and use the sewing machine, and has even had a crash course in electronics! Outside of MAKESHOP she can be found teaching tot yoga, or caring for her three pets: Piper and Greta, the house rabbits, and Cashew, her 1 year old lab/ collie mix. Amy has a MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Fibers.
