When was the last time you learn a new skill? Back in your school or college days? Even if you are already in the working world, you can always find time to hone different skills like painting, carving or knitting. Here are the Top 10 Art & Craft Workshops in KL and Selangor that you might want to sign up for.
1) Art & Bonding
Creating a piece of artwork is more than just a self-expression. Art also helps to bring people together and that certainly rings true for Art & Bonding at Desa Sri Hartamas. The staffs are known to be both friendly and helpful, meaning you don’t have to worry even if you have no painting skills. Their “Sip & Paint Night” is particularly a must-try session if you are a first-timer. Imagine the joy of painting while chilling over a glass of wine. Now, that’s the kind of session you don’t want to miss.
2) The Artsy Craftsy
Looking for more varieties to help unleash your inner creativity? Then, you might want to check out The Artsy Craftsy at Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam. Learn batik painting, wood carving, stone doodling or even fabric transprinting — they basically have them all and other workshops to choose from. Check out the website below to find out more about their sessions.
3) Crochet My Hobby
The name of this workshop says it all. If you love crocheting, this would be the place to be. Crocheting a blouse? Weaving a basket? Or perhaps knitting a small Japanese stuffed toy popularly known as amigurumi? Here’s your chance to do so! Besides, did you know that learning how to crochet helps to relieve stress and also able to bring you a positive form of self-satisfaction?
4) My Weekend Plan
Let’s face it, most of us have only one weekend (typically Saturdays and Sundays) to unwind before we start another brand new work week. Enter My Weekend Plan, a place that offers various short-term classes to make your weekend more exciting and productive at the same time. You can learn a lot of things here like photography, flower arrangement, make-up, hand embroidery and even basic Mandarin course. My Weekend Plan also offers a chance for those who want to become a teacher instead. Click here for more info or send your enquiry at email@example.com

You will find plenty of them here at Black Milk Project’s range of workshops.
