All our workshops are carefully written with clear learning objectives and outcomes by a trained educator. Besides skills which we impart, values and content input are also shared at BeesyHands. These will be clearly written out in handouts given at each workshop. That is our promise.

Contact us, share with us your target age and size of your group. Tell us what you would like to learn and the preferred duration of the workshop. Is the workshop to make a gift for a special someone? Do you already have an idea of what you want?

Let us know. Customisation is key to our business.


All cooking life skills workshops are standalones. Our BeesyHands instructors saw a lacking in precise basic cooking skills in today’s children. That nudged us to create a series of workshops to equip children with basic cooking skills for life. Each workshop will end with a simple meal for the BeesyHands participants.

Values shared – gratefulness, patience

Examples of content taught – words like chiffonade, julienne

  • 2 hours per session

  • Ms Edith

Mincing and marinating Meats eg chicken / patties for burgers
Whisking / scrambling Eggs / English and American styles of scrambling / Scrambled eggs with toppings
Chiffonade / chopping Omelette eggs with chopped garlic and onions


Like cooking, there are also baking life skills which children can learn and experience firsthand and from these they can understand the Science behind each baking technique. For example, baking bread should not be as daunting as it looks, creativity should follow, and the participants will learn for example, how the “yeast graveyard” eventually becomes the bread that we eat. Even if there is no access to an oven at home, baking skills can still be learned, for example through steaming and no-bake techniques.

Values shared – Truth, diligence

Examples of content taught – “what is a yeast graveyard”, fermentation, types of whipping cream

  • 2 hours per session

  • Ms Edith

Sewing is another life skill quite missing in our busy world today. The term “sewists” is a new term and this aptly describes what we do as Sewists at BeesyHands. A Sewist sews and imbues art into his/her craft piece. There is a range of sewing techniques the participants can learn. The lessons include quilting flat squares the good old fashioned way, by hand, stitch by stitch, and simple basting of the square. This can be followed by the applique technique which uses mainly the blanket stitch. Embroidery is a fine sewist’s technique requiring more patience and nimble skills. Cross stitching can also be a sewist’s art piece, from simple to the more elaborate ones. Perhaps you have a patchwork in mind, using your favourite clothes which you cannot wear now, and you do not want to invest in the tools required to make it, contact us. We will be happy to guide you through it.

Values shared – patience, grit

Examples of the content taught – what is a flat square and where it originated from, key terms used in embroidery

  • 2 hours per session (number of sessions depending on the project)

  • Ms Joyce / Ms Rosa

Type of Skills End Outcome

Explore printing and stenciling workshops. Explore stippling and blocking, explore shading or even just pouring the paint! We do not believe in a one size fits. Tell us what you want to paint and we will bring you on a creative journey.

At BessyHands, we not only teach you how to latch hook, we teach you how to design and the various ways to finish your piece and our very own finishing corner hook.

As part of saving the earth, why not put your old tees to good use by making a rug using the latch hook mat and your fingers!

BeesyHands are about using the hands and what best way to do this than through moulding. Using ceramic plaster and wax, children will experience what it is like to mould and decorate their craft pieces. For ceramic plaster, the pair of BeesyHands will make bear aroma diffusers. Wax is also another choice of base ingredient used in moulding. We only use imported German plaster mix and beeswax for these workshops, in line with our environmental ethos.

BeesyHands also offers clay and ceramic workshops. For those new to moulding, we offer a variety of clay for students to dabble in, including child-safe air dried clay. For those who want to try their hand at ceramic art, depending on your preference and time, we will journey with you through the hand-building methods – slab work, coiling and pinching. These will include glazing and firing.

Values shared – freedom, patience

Examples of content taught – different types of clay, wax and soaps

Decoupage is an art that originated as early as in the 12th century. Later after moving from East Siberia to China and Europe, its popularity was attributed to the artists in Florence, Italy. Anyone can decoupage. For the younger ones, we teach the most basic skill, how to use a pair of scissors to cut paper. Decoupage is so versatile. We can use almost anything that you wish to recycle to decoupage and make a pretty gift. The techniques are varied depending on the paper medium that you use as with the end varnish too. At BeesyHands, we bring decoupage classes up a notch by incorporating mixed media such as painting and ceramic plaster just to name a few.

Values shared – patience, helpfulness
