About Us

bringing tools, skills and business
to local craftsmen.

Located in the heart of Nairobi’s furniture district, the Workshop brings tools, skills and business to local craftsmen.

The Workshop was created in 2015 to bring together local artisans and furniture manufacturers to create modern, hand-crafted furniture using locally sourced, sustainable materials.  The Workshop aims to be a space for creative and collaborative thinking, training, and designing, to develop local talent and open new markets for Kenya’s furniture industry.

The Workshop helps Kenyan craftsmen in three ways: 

  • Innovate new designs

  • Develop skills

  • Market products

Our mission is to help small-scale furniture manufacturers improve the quality and innovation of their products and creating new markets for their goods.  We at the Workshop believe in the talent, ingenuity, and passion of entrepreneurs everywhere and seek to support them by creating partnerships with designers and by helping to grow the customer base for high-quality, locally sourced and produced Kenyan furniture.
