Build a Bat Box Kit

Build a Bat Box Kit
In this kit class, participants will assemble and finish a fun Bat Box designed by Make Studio Martin using glue, nails and screws. Bat Boxes are a little apartment for bats, and also great way to cut down on the amount of mosquitoes in your area, without having to constantly spray chemicals. Simply hang this box up out of reach, and these little nocturnal mosquito vacuums will do the rest. Great activity to do with family and/or friends to spruce up your neighborhood and home! Ticket per Bat Box, two people per ticket.    Prefer birds? Check out our Blinged-Out Birdhouse class. When: Thursday, June, 8th 6:30pm-8:30pm Where: JUMP Make Studio on the 5th floor, take a left out of the elevators, through the double doors outside and around until you see the orange Make sign.  Cost: What to Expect: Wear clothes that you dont mind getting dirty! Martin Sarasqueta is the Make studio coordinator at JUMP and has been, among other things, a pizza maker in Stanley, a bartender and sandal maker in the Caribbean, a custom furniture designer and builder in California, and a soap maker in Boise. When not tinkering with tools, he makes music no one wants to hear, grows too much food in his garden, makes really delicious gin, thinks way too much about soil, tries not to die skateboarding, and walks around collecting and scattering wildflower seeds on walks in the evening with his wife and dog.   What inspires you? "Creativity, on any level, and unique innovation and problem solving inspire me. Give 100 people a task and ten tools, and you'll get eight different unique processes. I love picking apart the process and understanding why and how people do what they do. Craftsmanship is inspiring. People devoting their lives to perfecting a craft or trade. The world is full of beautiful, amazing things, from a perfect weld to a carefully curated bonsai tree to homemade croquetas. I love croquetas, mmmmm." martin.sarasqueta@jumpboise.org FAQs   What is JUMP?
