The RAFT facility is brimming with materials, ideas, and activity kits . . . but that is only the beginning! We also have a huge teacher workspace called the “Green Room,” filled with supplies and tools such as a laminating machine, Ellison die cuts, and bookbinding machines. And of course, we have a terrific staff who is there to support YOU: if you need anything, just ask!
We also have meeting spaces available. The Green Room and Mezzanine are bright and comfortable spaces available for free for members to use on a first-come, first-served basis. If you need a more formal or private environment, we have a beautifully equipped raftlab space just steps away that can be reserved and rented for $25/hour.
We turn dimes into dollars! We always have tons of items and lots of creative ideas for how to teach with them. With our new “by the bag” shopping system, our goal is to provide you with the affordable supplies you need to be effective and inspiring when teaching.
