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!

SPECIAL COVID-19 MESSAGE TO PARTICIPANTS We're back and can't wait to see you all again. However, given the special circumstances, we will follow the federal government's health safety recommendations. Hand sanitizing and tool disinfecting will be applied before, during, and after the activity. Masks are not compulsory in Switzerland where social distancing is feasible, however, since in woodworking this is not guaranteed, we highly recommend wearing your mask. We cannot offer drinks or snacks, so please bring your own water bottles. Should you notice the slightest signs of illness or unusual tiredness, we kindly ask you to stay at home. Life must go on and we need to get off the house. We hope we can continue working together and have fun despite the difficult times. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you back. ******************************************************************************** In this semi-private session, you are invited to bring your individual project and we will assist you in building it.

Project-based introduction to woodworking (2-evening course)

GZ Seebach – Zürcher Gemeinschaftszentren

CHF 160.00

SPECIAL COVID-19 MESSAGE TO PARTICIPANTS We're back and can't wait to see you all again.

Life must go on and we need to get off the house. We hope we can continue working together and have fun despite the difficult times. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you back. ******************************************************************************** Here's what we found in Knock On Wood https://www.knockonwoodeurope.com/ . People don't BUT would like to use their hands again. Why? Because we are distanced from our basic human skills; namely using our hands as tools. It's satisfying and brings balance to the life of those working in offices. Family members and friends connect differently over a fabrication project and all love having a tangible result of their work. Therefore, if you ever wondered how to get started with a project, in this two-part (2X3-hours on two consecutive Tuesdays) workshop you can get your feet wet in woodworking without investing in your own equipment or committing to long courses. We use modern methodologies to show you a range of skills in a project-based activity where you will be guided through from planning to finishing your first project. We offer two-three projects to go through. In the end you will go home with a finished product and you will gain confidence in handling tools and machines. You will: - do some measurements - use a jigsaw - drill and screw - glue - maybe use a router - use a sanding machine - use a lamelo machine - under supervision using a band saw and a miter saw Price: Part 1 and 2: 160 CHF FAST PAYMENT: https://rebi.me/ZHintrows or leave your phone number in a message and we'll send you a TWINT request. To see past projects or joining the conversations, go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/Knockonwoodeurope/?ref=bookmarks Languages we speak: English, français, español, Deutsch, Magyar We have a 24-hour cancellation policy. As always, feel free to get in touch and ask questions. Hope to see many of you there. KOW Team
