- Things to Do
“The Butterfly Joint is a woodworking and design studio for children of all ages (and adult classes are offered as well!). When students walk through the doors of the Butterfly Joint, they are transported into a woodworking studio designed just for them. They clock in with their very own punch cards, put on their work aprons, and get started on their projects after hearing the sound of the steam whistle.
The Butterfly Joint focuses on teaching children traditional joinery techniques—he use of dovetails, box joints and loose tenons in place of screws and nails. Lead by Danny Montoya, a credentialed early-childhood educator with more than a decade of experience in the classroom, The Butterfly Joint offers classes, camps, birthday parties, workshops and activities that instill the importance of focus, problem-solving, resilience, determination and responsibility through the timeless art of woodworking.
The Butterfly Joint also has a retail component, both in-store and online, offering take-home projects, completed pieces perfect for gifting and specialty items such as child-sized aprons, work gloves and age-appropriate tools. We hope you can come for a visit!”
