Join us at The MINT for a summer of fun like no other!

Have a curious child who wants to know how to make their own musical instruments, and learn the importance of recycling and reusing. Well, this is the class for them.  Youth will learn to make guitars, harmonics, and rainsticks. The instruments will be made out of paper towel rolls, tissue boxes, popsicle sticks, straws, and rubber bands.  Youths will also learn the basic elements on how an instrument makes its sound.

This is a drop-off session for teens (generally kids 13+ but younger kids are welcome if they will be able to complete the project without caregiver help). 

Dinner will be provided for those who choose during registration.  Please bring a water bottle. 

Date: Tuesday, June 27th from 4:30pm-7:30pm

Pre-registration is required. $10 per person

Discounted registration available for COVID impacted families

Free registration for SNAP, 3Squares and housing assistance. 

Choose the registration option that matches your family situation, no proof of income is required. 

Our youth programming is made possible through Expanding Access grant funding, administered by VT Afterschool. 

A place for tinkerers, makers, and small businesses to have space, contacts, and equipment to thrive. If you possess a passion for creating and making, a MINT membership is for you.
