Color Your Very Own Puzzle and Make a Spirograph at the Free Make-and-Take at the Maker’s Market!
Silver City MainStreet/Arts & Cultural District is partnering with the Future Forge and various community groups and artists to offer an arts and cultural experience to residents of Grant county. Make-and-Take activities will be from 10 am to 2 pm every Saturday at the Maker’s Market at Main Street Plaza, May through October.
On Saturday, October 2, The Future Forge will provide laser cut puzzles in several shapes that children can color and make their own. The puzzles were made at The Future Forge using a laser cutting machine. The machine is just one of the many pieces of equipment available to members of organization. They will also provide spirographs for kids of all ages to make. They are an amazing low-tech tool to make art that looks high tech. Come and check them out.
The Future Forge is a local, non-profit Maker Space with the goal of providing access to tools, equipment, knowledge, skills, and space to propel and empower our local community.
They aim to make resources accessible to all generations to allow for exploration, innovation, entrepreneurship, and creative growth, while understanding how to work together in a productive way. The Future Forge is located at 212 S. Bullard Street in Silver City. More information can be found at www.thefutureforge.org.
The Future Forge is providing the space for the Make and Take table at the Maker’s Market, held May through October on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm at the Main Street Plaza in downtown Silver City. This table will be used to offer free, family oriented activities for residents of Grant county. Silver City MainStreet offers a small stipend for supplies.
The purpose is to provide an arts and cultural experience for youth and families. Art experiences are not readily available in Grant county, and this is a great opportunity for youth to experience art and see Makers selling their work at the Maker’s Market. It makes art more relevant, especially as a way to earn income.
