English courses

Do you want to learn to make something yourself with your hands or learn how to handle our professional machines for wood and/or metal processing? You can go for the basic skills, but also learn the tricks professionals use to really make something beautiful. Look in the list below for the different types of courses and possibilities.


Tailored courses or course facilities

Are the English courses  you can find through the links below not what you’re looking for? We also offer tailor-made courses for groups of friends, businesses , etc. Do you want to give a course yourself but you haven’t got the facilities? We can provide you with the space and equipment, but also provide promotion and administration. Please contact us for the possibilities at : (020)468 0581 or cursus@openbarewerkplaats.nl.


We do offer more courses, but they are given in Dutch only. If you understand Dutch well enough if spoken to, following one of those courses will not be a problem, as individual questions can be answered in English. For more information, see our available Dutch courses.
