Charlestown Studio Fabrication Volunteer

Ever wonder how we make our exhibits? This is your chance to find out! Volunteers will work alongside our design team in the Charlestown studio to help create some new exhibits.

Volunteers will help prepare models, chip away excess, and paint foam structures with a protective sealant to prepare them for display. This work is dirty, dusty, and sealant is industrial-grade, so volunteers should wear clothes they don't mind ruining. Gloves and burshes will be provided.

Help is needed with a number of tasks which may vary day to day. Below is generally what you can expect:

Aug 27-31: Assist (mainly cleaning up) with foam sculpting  
Sept. 3-7: Assist (mainly cleaning up) with foam sculpting and painting latex on reef sculptures
