Learn to ‘Make it Yourself’ with EOW


The time has come to ‘Make It Yourself’ – Learn how with EOW!

Creative Learning has returned to EOW!
It’s been fantastic to see the workshop filling up again as our get back into the space of making – whatever their project may be. Some special highlights have been a giant 8-foot spider, a sweet homemade wedding box, and the beginning of a bespoke cocktail  bar.
Now is a great time to try your hand as something new! Our courses and workshops are designed for a variety of skill levels, and are led by EOW team members, resident makers, and visiting artists including master carpenters, welders, designers, and other partnered makers.
With our first sessions of Make Your Own Furniture halfway through, it’s been exciting to see folks both new and returning to woodwork getting their hands and heads around making a new bit of furniture for their homes. You can try your hand at anything from Screen Printing, Sewing, and Welding. Sessions sell out fast, so we encourage booking early!
New to EOW? No worries, membership is not required to book a course or workshop.

Check out some of the course run by EOW Resident Members – see something you want to try out? Follow the contact links to book a session, or set up a private session or commission.

You can also hire workspace at EOW to run your own courses; with machine and tool use included in the hire – let us worry about the workshop so that you can focus on your course. Contact us to learn more!
