DIY Workshop at Advent/ Christmas fair in Graz - (closed, next in summer tba)
We'll bring a basic set of tools and develop ideas with you. If you would like to upgade an existing piece of furniture or build from scratch (like the stool shown here). Especially if you have no experience you will learn how to make stuff yourself, because you will be building everything on your own (advised by us), regaining your confidence in your abilities: You can do it! Click on Image to get the details (german). Workshop Dates: 6.12. 7.12. and 14.12 2012
