Maker Sessions are hands on activities for boys that focus on craftsmanship, artistry, and technical skills with a view towards making useful and beautiful things. Maker sessions are meant to inspire the participants to find new interests and begin maker projects of their own.

A team of craftsman and artists run Maker Sessions throughout the year. The Sessions take place at places amenable to the particular session–homes of “Riverside Friends”, and the workshops of some of our experts.
