What we're about

After a succesful launch in Geneva, Knock On Wood Zurich welcomes everybody who'd like to re-connect with manual fabrications, the use of tools, learn woodworking in a project-based manner in a safe environment with professional assistance. It's also for those who don't have tools and machines to realise their projects or cannot make noise in their homes. We welcome kids too as for them Craft Education, hand-brain-eye coordination is a crutial element of their cognitive development. It's equally a wonderful way to connect academic knowledge to practical skills. All in all, do come and hammer with us!
