WSHM hosts 3rd annual Kid Maker Market


Is your kid arty or crafty or entrepreneurial? Entrepreneurial makers ages 4-18 are invited to bring their hand-crafted items to sell at a special Kids’ Maker Market, inspired by the exhibition “Make/Do: A History of Creative Reuse,” which is currently on view at Washington State History Museum.

The Kids’ Maker Market will be held on Aug. 16, Free Third Thursday, from 4-7 p.m. This is an opportunity for youth to experience the creative process, bring their ideas to life and exercise business skills. Local maker Allison Stewart Bishins of Handmade PNW is organizing this event for the History Museum. Tables can be rented for $10.

For visitors who want to make something of their own, Tinkertopia will be on hand with a craft table. Shoppers can also enjoy snacks while they peruse the kids’ art and items available for sale. Free entry, free snacks and free Tinkertopia make and take crafts. What’s not to like?

Handmade PNW (started by Happy Fox Studio) organizes events to support and encourage makers in Tacoma.
