Junior + Teen Firefly presented by Tinker Art Studio Will Be at Summer Market This Weekend
These young entrepreneurs and makers are amazing!
Junior Firefly has been a part of Firefly Handmade markets for the past several years, offering young entrepreneurs, designers and makers a fun, creative, educational experience in the artisan craft market world. This year, we've expanded our traditional Junior Firefly, ages 6-12, to include Teen Firefly, ages 13-17.
Our goal is to create an opportunity for Juniors and Teens to put their maker skills, ideas, and entrepreneurship to work and learn what it's like to run an artisan market business--complete from creating their handmade goods to naming their businesses, making signage, setting up their displays, and selling their goods at the market! Junior & Teen Firefly presented by Tinker Art Studio will be a mini market held in the heart of the larger summer Firefly Handmade Market on Boulder's beautiful 29th Street Mall.
Firefly Handmade is partnering with Tinker Art Studio and Twenty Ninth Street to offer this incredible youth program free of charge.
Tinker Art Studio
Tinker Art Studio is leading our amazing young Firefly artisans, bringing the same creativity, professional art and educational guidance, and just loads of fun to the entire experience for our youth! Tinker hosted a "Jr & Teen Firefly Community Night" at their studio where these young artisans helped to paint banners that will be hung at the market, showed off some of their incredible handmade goods and had fun meeting other artisans.
