rock paper scissors

Do you have a child that loves to design and create with fabric? Paint and sculpt? Or does wood working and tools drive their passion? Take a look at rock paper scissors studio here in Mt. Pleasant...

Owned and operated by Amanda Robles, this studio space offers gender bending activities for children and adults - clothing design, printing fabrics, and sewing are not just for girls! Amanda informed me that when local school University School of the Lowcountry recently visited her studio, the boys took over the sewing machines and had a blast. Amanda does a fantastic job of offering a wall of tools and materials to teach you or your children how to use them. Everything you need to spark your creative side is provided here. 

I don't offer many opinions on Summer Camps on this blog as my children have not done them in past summers and I always like to test things out for you first. However, in the coming weeks I have a few to recommend that I've researched. Some of our picks intrigued me in that they are innovative and unique. Check out rock paper scissors summer camps on the link below. Take this one, for example, in the sewing and design category:
