At The Common Bench, we love making things with our hands, be it wood, clay or any other art form. We know that every child is an artist and believe that their childhoods would be all the more enriched through creative, hands-on experiences. We want both kids and their parents to discover the joy of making. So, we’ve designed our workshops to be perfect opportunities for families to come together, create and, most of all, bond in a unique and laid-back setting.

  1. Great workshop! The kids had a good time really practicing their woodcraft skills in a safe and guided class environment. Totally recommend it to kids who enjoy some knocks, sawing, filing and glueing. A joy to watch them bring their little wooden toys home!

  2. We were glad that parents and kids were welcome at the session or we would have missed out on the fun!

    It started with a short explanation of the tools and project, then a hands-on segment. Common Bench provided quality hand tools and materials that made what might seem tough for little hands easier. They stepped in to guide when needed but left us to build as we wished otherwise.

    Thank you to the friendly couple of Common Bench for a great time. A clever idea for a pop-up workshop by a cafe too! We had a lovely brunch, learnt something new and brought home new handmade toys.

  3. Interesting workshop. Rare opportunity for kids to experiment with wood material. Simple and safe techniques were shown and the instructor is approachable. Be sure to guide your little ones along too as they may be handling process like sawing, hammering etc. Kiddos felt really proud of their wooden toy creation!
