NEW COURSES ON OUR PROGRAM! What can you try and learn in our workshop?


It is wet and cold outside, come hide in our workshop and try something new! Thanks to our teachers you can broaden your horizons and maybe discover a new hobby. From most of the courses you will take home your own hand-made present for somebody or for yourself.


You are not very excited about the offer of the clothes shops, you have much better ideas, but you don´t know how to make them come true? Do you have an old sewing machine hiding in your closet, but you´re not sure where to start? At our beginners course Natalie will teach you all you need to know to start – how to thread, how to set up a sewing machine and how to convince it to do what you want it to do.

You know the sewing basics, and now what? At our subsequent courses you can learn how to sew skirt, bag or pants….. and you will make one for yourself.


Are the knitting needles too scary for you? And sewing machine is too technical? No problem. Everybody can make a hat with knitting rings! No needles involved.




Or what about beautiful dream catchers, that will assure you sweet dreams and decorate your bedroom at the same time. Eliška will take you through the process step by step – you can check out her work here.

DIY Praha Grill

DIY Praha Grill was built in a process of collaborative effort on our Welding workshop mentored by Michael and Hank. We are very thankful to everybody that participated. We fired it up for the first time on our Open day and it did a great job. Nobody went home hungry.

In the last few days Michael took care of some final details.

Now grill is out of the shop, travelling around town, doing what it does. It will be on the job at the Jiřího z Poděbrad farmers market for the next two days. Don’t miss the opportunity to try some of the delicious Vietnamese food.
