9 DIY Spots In Toronto To Learn How To Make The Coolest Stuff
As a DIY queen, I love to learn how to make new things and I also love teaching people how to make new things, too. I host workshops teaching people how to make different plant-related items, but one day I aspire to be as amazing as some of these places that teach new skills. Doesn’t this make you want to jump out of your seat and learn something new? I can’t wait to give some of these workshops a try, and it makes me even more excited to continue to teach others as well!
These are the 9 best places in Toronto to learn how to make stuff!
As one of the biggest and most popular DIY spaces in Toronto, The Make Den has been on my list of places to visit for a long time. It’s a great place to learn how to sew or how to work with leather, but there are also a bunch of other great crafty workshops and classes as well. The space even offers screen-printing classes, so you can get started on your new fashion empire!
Not only is the The Workroom a great place to learn how to sew, but it also has a storefront with a ton of beautiful fabrics and everything you could ever need to get started! On top of sewing and quilting classes, you can also take weaving and DIY accessories classes. Plus, if you don’t have your own sewing machine and want to work on a project your own, you can rent a machine by the hour!
I’ve had my eye on Rawspace for a long time now because of its DIY Wedding Band Workshop. There are also guest artists who come in and teach a variety of different workshops that aren’t related to jewellery making, including cookie decorating and macrame wall hangings. There’s definitely something for everyone over at Rawspace!
The Devil’s Workshop also hosts a variety of jewellery-based workshops, including its own version of a DIY Wedding Band Workshop!
I’ve been to Paintlounge a bunch of times, and every time it’s a blast! You can take workshops that guide you step-by-step through the process of each element of a painting, or you can take a class specializing in a technique where you create your own masterpiece. You can also drop-in to paint at your leisure, host a paint party, or other type of event in their space.
If you’re looking to learn how to use power tools and start learning more about woodworking, then The Unplugged Woodshop is for you. Woodworking is one space I’m not 100% comfortable with, and there are even classes geared especially towards women looking to learn more about the craft.
If you’ve got a little one in your life who loves to get crafty, DesignHer Co. might be what you’re looking for. With lots of workshops for kids and adults, DesignHer Co. also offers after-school classes and birthday parties for the younger crowd. There’s even a craft camp — doesn’t that sound amazing?!
Her People’s four-week program is perfect for anyone looking to get crafty AND meet new people. This space is focused on bridging new relationships through creativity, especially for women looking to meet new people and forge new friendships. The first three weeks are a creative craft such as making cement planters, macrame hangers, or painting, and the fourth week is a potluck and book club discussion. I’m stoked to sign up!
As someone who has worked with Embiria’s founder, Palak, I know she takes pride in the little details that make these creative experiences so special. Whether you’re looking to make something, or learn experience something new, Embiria’s roster of faciliators are amazing at crafts, and make your experience memorable.
