Empower Kids Through Handwork

Donation protected

Hey there! I'm Nate, and I'm embarking on a journey, with a team of incredible people, to launch a program that's all about empowering kids (and people in general) through handwork – think woodworking (and eventually leatherwork, printmaking, knitting, and baking ).

At the heart, it is not creating the next generation of makers; it's about nurturing the whole child – their mind, body, heart, and social skills – all in one enriching experience that will server them well in all of life.

Kids are free to explore their creativity and curiosity, diving into a world of hands-on projects that ignite their imagination and build their confidence. From mastering the basics to tackling more complex project builds.

They'll be entrusted with using real tools – the kind that craftsmen and artisans swear by. Picture them shaping wood with hand planes, sculpting with chisels, or weaving wonders with needles and yarn. The pride they'll feel in creating something with their own two hands. It's a gift that all should have access too.

As a fellow maker, I've witnessed firsthand the transformative power of creating, and now, I'm on a mission to share that gift with those around me. But I can't do it alone.

With your support, we can provide the tools and resources needed for a classroom of 10 kids!
