Welcome to The Wonder Club!

Here at The Children’s Museum of the Upstate, we believe wholeheartedly in the power of “wonder.” That’s why it’s one of our six core values. We love it so much we created an entire club just to encourage young learners to follow their curiosity! Introducing our course line-up for spring 2024:

  • SOLD OUT February 10, 10am: Fun with Frosting Cupcake Decorating

          Young bakers will learn cupcake decorating techniques including how to pipe icing. Students will take home the Valentine-themed cupcakes they decorate! This workshop is led by expert baker and former schoolteacher Christine Wiethop, owner of Baking Sweet Scents.

  • March 2, 10am: Gyotaku Printmaking

          Young artists will dive into the world of Japanese fish printing, known as Gyotaku. Guided by Lauren Runion, founder of Yellowbobbypins Art Camp, students will use silicone molds to explore the fascinating technique of creating vibrant and unique fish prints.

  • April 13, 11:30am: Gourmet Grilled Cheese 

          He’s been called a culinary prodigy. Chef Mike of White Wine and Butter has the gift of taking something simple and creating a masterpiece with precision and excellence. Now he’s sharing his wisdom in this special grilled cheese cooking class.
