Maartsy’s Workshop for Creative Folks in Makati City  

Learning a new skill or immersing oneself in a new activity is always a great form of stimulant. Whether it’s learning a new language, picking up a new instrument, or learning how to bake, there is definitely something that sparks a person’s interest. The chance to pick up a new hobby is also something people who are inquisitive and productive would definitely enjoy.

There is no need to travel to be able to immerse yourself in learning. Manila is filled with workshop classes and sessions that many locals enjoy participating in. One incredible platform that hosts a variety of workshops for all creative and curious individuals, established in 2015, Maartsy continues to provide an avenue for creators and aspiring artists to explore their skill.

Maartsy’s headquarters is located in Unit 703 State Condominium 1, 186 Salcedo Street, Legaspi Village in Makati City. September is slowly coming to an end but Maartsy has a few more classes and workshops people can purchase online and visit on the weekend to learn from established professionals in their own craft.
