Make Your Own

Make Your Own Workshop Series 

The Make Your Own series (MYO) aims at fostering the mindset of DIY and learning by doing through project-oriented workshops. The series comprises DIY projects and spans a range of design and fabrication skills and technologies whereby participants not only acquire the understanding and know-how to build a particular product but the confidence in their ability to do so again and again. Each MYO project includes instructed steps as well as personalization options for participants to add their unique creative touch.

We're continuously creating new MYO content of inspiring and fun projects. We also welcome collaborators and encourage our community members to contribute the same. 

Here's a list of available MYO workshops. Click on the desired box to view the workshop profile
