Children’s Weekly Classes at The Maker Farm

Creativity and imagination abound in our weekly school-year classes. From masterpiece art to sewing, our unique classes are designed to tap into children’s natural curiosity and unbridled imaginations. There is no “right way” nor “wrong way” at the Maker Farm just a wonderful journey down the path of the child’s imagination guided by our experienced teaching staff.

 

 PROGRAMMING at The Maker Farm at Meadowbrook in Westford and our new location – The Maker Farm at Bancroft in Pepperell.

 

NOTE: There are no classes held during school vacations and holidays. Please do not drop off more than 5 minutes prior to a class at The Maker Farm as staff is busy prepping lessons and doing farm chores! Classes missed can often, but not always, be made up. Please check in with Emily (info@themakerfarm.com) about make-up lessons and prorating.
