Creations taking shape in The Studio
For those of you who are new to the growing network of amateur inventors and creators, informal learning labs can be tailored to meet the experimental and experiential learning goals of its community. It’s all about designing solutions to problems or questions you have created. All over the country, design spaces and fab labs like these are cropping up in libraries, museums and schools that focus on developing skills ranging from woodworking to circuitry and graphic design to 3D-printing. At The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms, we've created a space and approach that embraces ingenuity and imagination. There is almost no limit to what can be created at The Studio – we've seen some amazing things take shape, including a fully-functioning drone built from scratch.
When you visit The Studio, you’ll find our staff hard at work teaching customers of all ages the ins and outs of 3D print and design, sewing and textiles, and jewelry and minor metal-working. We run programs that focus on improving technique for each of these topics almost every afternoon of the week, and we welcome customers all day who drop in looking for technical advice and a big, resource-filled space to work on their own creations. Our customers have designed and sewn their own clothing, printed custom fidget spinners and gimbal accessories, and even performed watch repairs. In addition to creating and having fun, visitors to The Studio are also learning foundational skills like geometry, trigonometry and programming that will support them in future careers in fields like engineering and computer science.
