People’s Sculpture Racing at Parts and Crafts!

Lead a Sculpture Racing Team!

Interested in leading a Sculpture Racing Team?

Parts and Crafts, in partnership with People’s Sculpture Racing, is excited to announce a series of Sculpture Racing workshops for parents, educators, and other interested grownups.   

  • How do we start?
  • What do we need?
  • What do we learn/what can we teach?

We’ll learn about sculpture racing, what it is, how a racing-sculpture is made (and how fun and easy it can be to race a sculpture!)   This workshop is geared towards grownups who are interested in leading youth sculpture racing teams to participate in the People’s Sculpture Racing Community Race in Cambridge on April 23rd.

Each workshop is a self-contained introduction to sculpture racing.  We’ll touch on the basics of kinetic sculpture and making mobile objects and we’ll talk about how helpful grownups can lead groups of kids to sculpture racing glory!   The workshop takes place at Part and Crafts, a community makerspace in Somerville located at 577 Somerville Avenue.  While the workshop is geared towards grown-ups and educators, the space is kid-friendly and children are invited to hang out and participate in our open-shop time during the workshop hours.
