Traveling Maker Space

Jay travels to schools, libraries, camps – all sorts of public and private events.

The Traveling Maker Space” has been mostly off the road, till big school gatherings and toy-sharing library events are back in season. During this time, Jay has converted his home workshop into a modern, online demonstration studio.


Jay is now booking limited in-person outdoor events, and looks forward to putting his Traveling Maker Space back on the road!
