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.

**March 2019 Update: We are in the final stages of exhibit construction! Volunteers will be focusing on cleaning and maintaing the shop and chipping plastic away from coral pieces.**

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 brushes will be provided.

Help is needed with a number of tasks which may vary day to day. To get an idea of what to expect and goals of the project, check out this video assembled by Shannon Leary, Fabrication Studio Intern: https://vimeo.com/300446336?ref=em-share
