MCD’s Designing Change series highlights how local creators are inspiring and driving meaningful change within their communities. Charlotte Jones, Education Director at Museum of Craft and Design, spoke with Emily Pilloton, Girls Garage Founder and Executive Director, about our programs and workspace, including how we continue to serve our fearless builder girls during shelter-in-place.

In addition to profiling Girls Garage, Museum of Craft and Design produced two at-home activities developed by Emily.
Mechanical Thinking Collection
Using Richard Serra’s Verblist as inspiration, search your surroundings for tools to artfully arrange into a flat-lay composition.

Plan, Section, Elevation
Grab any object and represent it with three drawings that show the top view, side view, and a cross section. This visual exercise will help you look at the world with an architect’s eye.
