The Assembly Plant
Use recycled materials to construct and create!
Screwdrivers, safety glasses, clamps and saws fully equip you to design and build one-of-a-kind creations out of clean recycled goods. Children and their grown-ups can sit at an individual workshop with blueprints and real tools and gather all sorts of funky materials for their very own architecture.
When you’re done, take your creation over to ARTS a la Carte to give it a little more flair!
We receive all our recycled goods from the community. Please start a bin at home with you kiddos and spread the word! Learn about everything we accept.
