Workshops are great for the creative and business-minded singles and modern moms. You can start the year by trying these classes out, and pull off the tough balancing act of crafting, enterprising, and taking care of the kids, while you’re at it.
The homemaker at heart will be able to appreciate new techniques in whipping up tasty treats for the family. While you may think that an online tutorial is enough for you to do that, consider that a few days’ worth of hands-on lessons from professionals will be able to get you a certification, which can be the first step to a new business venture.
Maya Kitchen offers classes in their Makati headquarters. They regularly hold certificate courses for basic culinary and basic cooking. They have yet to release their schedule for 2017, but have announced that they will resume their classes at the start of the year. For now, tune in to their website for updates.
