The Different City Experience festival 2015 went really well; big thanks to team DIY Praha for all the help; to Tibor, Rekola and bistro Oh la la for cooperation; Holešovice residents for great welcoming into the neighborhood
We are very happy to join the neighborly festival “Different city experience” also this year. Since we have moved from Prague 3, we won´t be at Kino Aero this year. Our program will be “at home”, in our workshop. Thanks to the size of premises (and the roof protecting us from a tricky weather), some other folks have joined us with their projects.
DIY Praha has officially moved to our new location in Holešovice! We are working very hard to prepare the workshop for all types of DIY projects and can’t wait for you to see what our bigger and better place has to offer.
We had a great few years and a lot of memories in our Vinohrady location, but we have finally made our big move to our new location in Holešovice!
Mathieu was one of the first people to come to DIY Praha. He originally came to try to fix the chair and some old furniture. Just two months ago, Mathieu finished a table in the workshop that was inspired by a group of his favorite designers from Chicago. “I’ve never worked with wood. And I found that I really enjoy this” he says.
From the first of July 2015, a bigger and more versatile premises in Holešovice will become the new home for our workshop. There are big changes coming – expansion of our services, new courses, a coffee and design shop….many things to look forward to!
You can help us with this big change by filing in this questionnaire, it will only take you a minute. It is important for us to know the opinions of the people who´ve gotten us this far, help us grow in the right direction. Thanks.
We also have a YOUTUBE CHANNEL now, containing videos from courses, events and from the process of creation of some of projects going on in the workshop.
Because we are moving, we will be taking a break in offering our popular workshops. So don´t miss your chance, sign up for the courses scheduled for June, there are still a few places left!
Are you curious to find out what happens, when an IT guy decides to open the first cider bar in the Czech Republic and create its furnishings himself?
How did you come up with the idea of furnishing the whole apartment with DIY furniture? Where did the motivation come from?
I had the apartment for rent and I wanted to make it unique, different from all of the others. Since I like the idea of up-cycling, I decided to build all the furniture out of pallets. Plus, a great deal of inspiration came out of my living in Berlin where interiors are often very alternative in interestingly designed.
Milan shared with us his experience at DIY Praha:
“I wanted to build a sound screen booth for years. I have a home studio and this kind of screens really help to produce clear sounds without echoes. However, you cannot make this kind of a project at home. I heard about DIY Praha by the word of mouth. I knew Michael who has built quiet some stuff in your workshop. That’s how I decided I would make my project here as well.
