HOW IT WORKS

A six step process to help you become a maker
1. CHOOSE PROGRAM

Choose the type of program you would like to enrol in based on your interest and time commitment. You will make at least one item in each program, and learn essential skills while making it

2. CHOOSE ITEM TO BUILD

The catalogue lists items specific to a program skill level. Look for items that interests you and time required to build, and your own time availability

3. BOOK YOUR SLOT

Book your slot based on the number of days the item takes to build. 100% payment is required to confirm your booking. You can pay online or via Paytm.

4. BUILD & LEARN

On the scheduled date, we will start at 9:30 am sharp! Half-day programs are expected to last for 4 hours, while full-day programs will run for 7 hours with a 30 minute lunch break

5. SANDING & FINISHING

You will finish your item using power sanders and sanding by hand, using different grits of sandpaper. Finally, you will mix and apply sanding sealer and polish to complete your build

6. PHOTOSHOOT

After all that hard work, you want to let your friends know what you accomplished, don't you? Take photographs with your item to post on your Facebook wall!

WHAT OTHERS SAY

Fantastic experience!

I had a great time making my own desk. In addition, I got involved in the design process as well, right from sketching on paper all the way to the final product.

My first time with power tools

It was super fun working with power tools all by myself. I also got to tweak the design to my liking and needs.
