The Bangkok urbanite lifestyle of mall-hopping, exploring new restaurant openings and catching the latest movies on show is no doubt a fun way of living life in the big city. Yet, there will be times when you’re in search of something a little more creative—more out-of-the-box plans to make with friends or for a fun first date. As usual, The Commons has you covered with a line-up of exciting workshops this month. All workshops are held at The Commons Kitchen on the third floor. Put these on your May agenda now:
Creative Basket Weaving Workshop
When: Sunday, May 20, 1-5pm
Ideal for those looking for an arsty escape from daily mundanity or those already into arts and crafts, the Creative Basket Weaving Workshop teaches you to make your own coiled raffia baskets.

Sourdough Making For Beginners
When: Saturday, May 26, 10am-5pm (1 hour lunch break included)
As far as cool and creative workshops go, it’s difficult to beat learning to make your own bread, especially our favourite sourdough! With Sourdough Making for Beginners, The Commons has invited avid health advocate Tanya Stockdale to provide you with the rare opportunity to make your own sourdough bread from scratch, starting from creating your own starter dough to choosing the right flours and finally adding different flavours to the bread for a delicious result. That’s not all—the workshop will also teach you to make your own gluten-free sourdough pancakes and chocolate sourdough cake!
Perfect for health-conscious foodies, the workshop costs 7,500 baht per person, inclusive of all equipment and ingredients. Reservations can be made three days in advance here.
Double Chocolate Brownies Workshop
When: Sunday, May 27, 1:30-4pm
Chocoholics shouldn’t miss out on this one: The double-choc brownies workshop will teach you how to make divine brownies with the One Night One Recipe baker. Your days of scouring bakeries for the ideal brownies are over because after this workshop, you’ll be able to achieve that super chewy, fudgy texture only found in the best of brownies. Toppings like caramel, peanut butter and nuts will also be provided so you can customise your brownies just the way you like them!
The workshop is 1,200 baht per person, including all ingredients, toppings and equipment. Reservations should be made three days in advance. Book here.
