Almost everything these days might be about apps, VR and AI, but sometimes some fair dinkum woodworking classes are what you need to bring you back to IRL. One of Brisbane's favourite woodworking studios, Makeit with Carbatec, offers outright beginners the chance to get stuck in, find your inner craftsperson and leave with something to show off.
Over four hours, the seasoned and passionate Makeit instructors will guide you through crafting your piece in the safest way possible — and ensure it's as awesome as possible. You can choose from a number of products to carve, including a serving platter, pepper grinder, table centrepiece, stool, spoon or shelf. Whatever you decide, your newly created piece will make a thoughtful gift or a crafty, rustic addition to your home.
There are multiple dates to choose from, with the next crafty workshop taking place on Tuesday, January 16. It may be the digital age, but that's no reason not to discover how handy you are with a hammer and chisel.
