where are you from?

how did you hear of hastudia?
> i live nearby, whenever i passed by hastudia i would drop in. i liked the atmosphere of the place and checked its website to take a look at what's going on there. when it became clear that working at home is simply not as productive as it can be, i decided to join the happy creative family. at the same time my story, that i planned to turn into a comic book was ready and there was absolutely no reason not to start working on it. so now I am in the creative process of turning the story into comic strips. 

what do you do?

are you an introvert or an extrovert?
> my entire life i considered myself to be an extrovert, but now that i think about it, i actually think i'm an introvert.

anything else?

and if you don't want to get your house all messy, come to hastudia we have tons of fun tools and supplies to get your started.

NOVEMBER // wood month

yes, we pride ourselves on being a multi-disciplinary workshop, yet sometimes it's fun to play favorites :) so for the month of november, we've decided to put an extra oomph on the topic of WOOD :  that durable, versatile, cost effective, natural and let's not forget beautiful raw material that we just love. 
we can go on and on about how satisfying and fun woodworking is, but instead we invite you to join us in one of our introductory wood classes or pick up a few more carpentry skills in one of our upcoming wood courses. 

and for those that looking to get their hands dirty with other materials, we took care of you too!

check out our monthly workshops and courses - there's something for everyone. 


oh and did you know -  the production and processing of wood uses much less energy than most other building materials, giving wood products a significantly lower carbon footprint? cool right?!

SEPTEMBER // schooled month

"experience is simply another name we give our mistakes" - oscar wilde

... and the truth is, DIY is no different. 

for those that have dabbled in DIY-ing, you know that even though it doesn't always pan out the way we want, laughing at ourselves is half the fun!

so this month, we're all about embracing the lessons, trying new things and pushing ourselves into new territory. 

come learn from our 'experience' with our roster of workshops that are sure to get you SCHOOLED!
