Maker Studio in Tinkering Space: The WorkSafeBC Gallery

Tinkering Space: The WorkSafeBC Gallery you know and love has a new feature:

Introducing Science World's Maker Studio in the Tinkering Space: WorkSafe BC Gallery!

Learning how to use tools safely and experimenting with different materials is an essential skill for everyone to have and Maker Studio is just the place to go to get the practice and creative space to do so!


In our special Earth Day Maker Studio, check out our Weaving Bookmarks! We encourage you to bring your own fabrics to upcycle into a new bookmark! We'll have the staff and materials required to turn your old shirts (or whatever else you bring) into materials that can be woven into a bookmark!

Do you like to read? Create things? Tinker?

In this Maker Studio activity, create your own woven bookmark using materials diverted from landfill or your very own upcycled materials! All you need is your imagination, and you can create and take home your own woven bookmark – all while repurposing diverted materials. Join us in the Tinkering Gallery for this activity and be sure to earn points in the Dream Tomorrow Today exhibit weaving house for more weaving fun!

Join us after school on Earth Day, April 22, and drop in between 3:00 and 5:00 to participate. With the help of our makers, question, imagine, create and test your very own bookmark while reflecting on the safety and correct use of the tools while completing your project.


Good stuff for you to know:

  • Maker Studio activities are included in the price of admission.
  • You can keep what you make!
  • Maker Studios happen in Tinkering a couple times per month — if you're visiting Science World on a day there is a Maker Studio, you can check in for free in the gallery on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Activities are recommended for makers age 12+ and require a safety orientation.  
  • Please note: Space is limited — we can accommodate a maximum of 6-8 participants at a time and the activity takes around 20-30 minutes to complete. A sign up list will be available if needed.
