February cooking classes in Makati

For Alabang classes, check out this post!

Hello hello! People have been clamouring for Makati-based cooking classes and it’s finally happening! Starting February, I hope to teach regularly (about 4 or so classes / month) in Craft MNL, a crafting workspace in Pasay Road, Makati. Craft MNL is a community of artisans, crafters, designers and creative entrepreneurs who learn, create, share and celebrate the work of our hands.  They try to give encouragement and support to crafters from all over the metro by providing a virtual space for folks to be able to see the other crafters/craft studios/craft events in their respective neighborhoods.  By doing so, they want to see just how extensive the passion for the handmade is in various cities. Check out their Facebook page and website for more info.

Craft MNL hosts regular crafting classes and my cooking classes will be included in their roster! Quite exciting times – I love the people behind Craft MNL and I love their passion.

Anyway, on to the schedules. Hope to see you guys there!
