A look back at our August Maker Day! We had a great time hanging out with families painting kindness rocks, making garden bee hotels, beautiful community art, and fun locker decorations for back to school. We can’t for our next event in just a few weeks!

More Info

During our Maker Days community members can come tinker, experiment, and create alongside local makers of all ages during a fun day of exploring creativity through art and design! 

These events honor the creative process with hands-on activities for all ages to try out at the Plymouth Artist Collective or at events around the Metro Detroit area. At each event we feature a special theme with simple crafts to make-and-take that day, along with open studio time for creative exploration with maker materials. 

We are asking friends, family and patrons to help support our maker day program through donations and sharing about our cause. All the donations will go towards the operating costs for these events, which includes the purchasing of art materials and supplies. We are committed to growing our community programs to help bring STEM and art education to more members of our community. Donations help us continue these programs and are greatly appreciated. 

September we’ll be kicking off our annual fall military care package donation drive and card making activity. Community members are welcome to drop off items to go in holiday care packages being sent to troops through Michigan Military Moms. Also during our events, you can make homemade cards that will be sent along with the care packages as a special show kindness and gratitude. For donation item ideas go to, www.michiganmilitarymoms.com/help.htm 

October’s Maker Day will be part of a special fall celebration event filled with pumpkin themed activities. More details coming soon. 

In November in honor of the holiday season we will be making gratitude trees along with having our final care package donation drive and card making craft. 

Date: Saturdays, September 7th, October 5th, November 2nd 

Time: 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
