You might not know that behind the blogging scenes, I’m also an art educator and make art in a sunny studio in Palo Alto, CA. Our home is tiny and I’m blessed to have a little extra space to stretch out into.
The studio is a converted classroom in what was once Palo Alto’s Cubberley High School. After being open for a little over 20 years, it closed in the 1970’s and all of the old classrooms have since been turned into community spaces such as preschools, art studios, community college classrooms, dance studios, and even a Chinese reading room. The complex is an rich collection of cultural wonders, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
Sharing the Space with the Community
One goal of TinkerLab is to create a community that celebrates the fact that we are all makers. One way to do this is by opening the studio as an inspiring space for hands-on making. Coming up is a series of free maker afternoons where families are invited to experiment and explore with different materials and ideas.
The next event will be on Saturday, September 26 from 2 – 4 pm and I hope to see you there.
See below for all of the upcoming dates.
