New Recycled ReCreations Makerspace

Launched April 11, our new Recycled ReCreations Makerspace is proving to be a big hit with "makers" and their families.
Makerspaces are creative, DIY environments where people gather to create, invent, and learn. Now you can join in on the fun - with an SM&NC twist. Located in the Children's Corner of the Stamford Museum, our new Makerspace is chock-full of materials to create, invent, and innovate, all of which are from safely recycled or reclaimed products. From egg cartons to pipe cleaners, and cardboard tubes, our materials allow budding artists and inventors to create, while exploring the ways we can reduce, reuse, and recycle.

The Makerspace is open during regular Museum hours and is free to SM&NC Members and included with the gate admission for non-members. Builders are welcome to show off their creations through social media by posting a selfie with the hashtag #ReMaker.

We are collecting some gently used materials to use in the Makerspace, as well as to benefit local organizations. The full list of materials requested is listed to the right.

Materials you can donate:
Non-paint Art & Craft Supplies
Children's Books
Newspaper & Magazines
Winter Coats, Hats, Mittens, Scarves
Small Gift Boxes
Construction Paper/Cardstock
