Youth Programs.


It’s Never too Young to Start Making.

Open Works is not offering summer camps or other in-person or virtual youth programming at this time. Check out our online store to find a Making In Place Craft Kit to get your young person’s hand making at home!

Interested in teaching? We’re always looking for expert makers. Contact us.

Class prices a hardship for your family? Apply for a youth scholarship for your child.

Teen Maker Program

The Open Works Youth Teen Maker Program aims to provide hands-on design and production experience to the next generation of aspiring makers. Through a series of collaborative and independent creative projects, Baltimore high school students will learn how to safely use the technology available here in our state-of-the-art makerspace to develop an idea into a finished product as well as learn the ins and outs of building and managing a sustainable creative practice.

The 2021-2022 Teen Maker Program runs from October until May. Applications due on or before October 16.
