‘Tis the season at the museum! We’ve got new and exciting ways to incorporate STEAM into your holiday—and we can’t wait for you to join us.
What better way to build tradition than by building together? Gingerbread Workshops are BACK—and we have something for makers of ALL ages. Each Gingerbread House Kit includes all your supplies—fresh gingerbread from La Mexicana Bakery, an assortment of candies and plenty of icing. Build one house together as a family or order kits for each family member to create a gingerbread masterpiece of their very own!
Thinkery’s four family-friendly Gingerbread Workshops this season will be sure to make your holiday extra sweet. Take a look!
Get creative while collaborating in our Traditional Workshops! These hourlong, educator-led workshops are appropriate for ALL ages and offer everything needed to build and decorate a charming gingerbread house. Yum!
Engage your mini-maker in a Tot Gingerbread Workshop! With tot-friendly decorations and an easy-to-build kit, families with children ages five and under will love this hands-on workshop.
Test your building skills with a structural engineering challenge in a Gingerbread Art & Architecture Workshop. Tinker and prototype while testing the strength of sugary supplies. Then, take inspiration from familiar Austin landmarks to design and draft the plans before constructing your very own creation! Ages 7+.
Calling all chemists! Join us in Kitchen Lab and learn the science of making candy in Candy Chemistry. Learn the molecular science behind sugar while building an edible sugar model. Master the phases of matter and make yummy lollipops. Go for a spin and create cotton candy. And after all that, decorate your house with your special candy creations! Ages 7+.
Come design, build and decorate together in a creative and collaborative Gingerbread Workshop!
Gingerbread Workshops are supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department. Visit Austin at NowPlayingAustin.com.
