Our Story

Woodwork Academy offers courses and workshops in Berlin for all skill levels and interests. Created and run by Lluis Mateu, our workshops provide you with essential design and technical background in a compact, seminar/demonstration style format.

Lluis Mateu is a woodworking enthusiast with more than 25 years of experience. He has built anything from bespoke furniture to wooden houses to sets for theatre and cinema. He has a deep passion for woodwork and loves sharing his excitement for the craft – as well as all the tricks he’s learned through the years!

“I began teaching workshops soon after I arrived in Berlin, and within a very short time realized that this is what I want to do more of, to reach more and more people.

So I started planning Woodwork Academy.

In the Woodwork Academy our wish is to empower anyone who wishes to find their ‘inner carpenter’. We believe that every single person has the ability to build basic furniture, and our work is to find the best way of helping you on this path.”
