Why woodworking?

Woodworking provides a wide exposure to the use of diverse tools allowing the development of fine- and gross-motor skills. The use of hands and their coordination with the brain and eyes is a fundamental human skill. Wood crafting conveys many areas of academic knowledge, including math, physics, art, to practical skills via project-based projects.

A strong link between planning and execution leads to tangible results, this way enhancing design thinking and human-centered design (Is my product useful? Will it last?). As unlike in digital fabrication, there’s no immediate gratification, students learn that in manual fabrication patience, concentration, understanding of tools and material will lead to a final product.

Why Knock On Wood?

We’ve designed and developed methodologies and projects catering for the 21st-century man and children. Throughout the years we tested and validated these ideas with users of diverse backgrounds as well as we collaborated with schools to co-create fabrication programmes. We have vast experience in working with both adults and youth who have no previous experience in manual fabrications.

What to expect in a summer camp?

Children will be exposed to basic concepts of handling tools and small-scale machinery in a safe environment as well as put design thinking into practice.

By the end of the week they will have several take-away products and will have gained confidence in a workshop environment.

Few project examples:

  • Acoustic mobile phone sound amplifier

  • Nordic lamp

  • All-wood Swiss Army Knife with mechanical parts

  • Home decor items

  • Artistic pieces………………..and many more
