Hart Street Makery

The Hart Street Makery is hosted by Christ Lutheran Church in Old North Dayton, OH.  At the makery, kids are able to gather and connect with their artistic side.  Our motto is "making with the maker, creating with the creator."  The kids don't just play around with crayons, they fully engage with art, technology, and science to carry out some impressive projects.  Recent projects have included a life-sized plush manatee we named Amanda, a life-sized treetrunk recycling station, a repurposed portable gaga pit, and a composting station for the neighborhood garden.  During the Covid-19 pandamic, the makery is temporarily closed but we are still taking on some big projects with the kids.  Learn more below.

Makery Projects


Using 6,000 repurposed bike tassels, we are creating a life-sized woolly mammoth.  Since the shimmering purple coat gives this mammoth a glamorous look, we're calling it Glammoth, the glamour mammoth.

100 Sheep

Using recycled pool noodles, we are creating 100 life-sized sheep.  Based upon Jesus' parable of the lost sheep, one of the 100 will continually go missing and be found again.  Our sheep will display a stunning spectrum of shapes, sizes, and color.

Lego Grandfather Clock

Made from thousands of second-hand plastic building bricks, this working grandfather clock will be a showstopper.  The left side will feature a scene of creation's wonders and the right side will feature humanity's strivings--a tribute to the amazing world God has made.
