The location for craft courses in Amsterdam

Openbare Werkplaats in the media

We appear in the media on a regular basis.
Here are some great examples:

Ambachtsplein Festival

May 13th 2023 we celebrated our 10th anniversary together with many companies that showcased their crafts. Amsterdam based newspaper Parool interviewed us and published a 2 page report (in dutch).
“Stiekum zijn we allemaal Ikea moe” 


We also get more and more foreign people (mostly expats). They come here to work, take courses and integrate into Dutch society. We were interviewed for that.
