Welcome to Hobby House Qatar

Hi and welcome to Hobby House Qatar, a very special project I’ve been working on for the past few months. Hobby House is quite simply a product of my own search and frustration to find a place in Doha where I could learn new creative skills and enhance existing ones. I’ve lived in the country for 11 odd years and i’ve never been able to find a one stop shop place that houses people with talent that can mentor anyone looking to pick up a hobby of their choice. There a few that cater to children but what about adult minds that need stimulation.

As a young girl my mother always inculcated in us a habit to take time to do what we love. Not always with the hope to excel at it but to have a way to vent out and release our daily stress. It could be anything from painting to recycling old cards to pottery to cross stitch to crochet. Just anything under the sun. It was the act of trying something new, learning and developing a part of our brain and ourselves that affected our overall personality, moral, self-esteem and wellbeing. It was also a great way for us as young girls to meet new like-minded people that would help us push our creative boundaries and eventually enhance ourselves. My search was futile and quite frankly I was just fed up of waiting on someone to act upon the idea. Sometime last year I decided to take matters in my own hands and so Hobby House Qatar was born.

What is Hobby House Qatar? 

HHQ is a place where talents are fostered, nurtured and grown. HHQ collaborates with artist and mentors around the city to teach what they love doing the most. The main aim is to simply share knowledge, ideas and learn new skills. It is also a place to meet new people, make new friends & drink lots of ☕️ together while building a hobby loving community.

At HHQ workshops are conducted monthly. Workshops are priced at 250 QAR per head. All workshops include material required. Spaces at #HHQ workshops are limited with a  max capacity of 12 people for a regular session and 8 for some special ones.

A schedule is published at the end of every month for the following month on our social media channels. If interested here’s how you can register.

How to register? 

Leave us a message on facebook or Instagram specifying the name of the workshop/date/ your full name/ contact no (registered on whatsapp preferably)

If we have a spot available we will register you immediately and confirm the spot, if not we’ll add you to a waitlist and keep you posted as soon as a spot opens.

* Cost includes all material required that you can take back home as a starter kit

A lot more fun workshops lined up for the next few months such as watercolor painting / Crochet / Macrame / Mandala Art / Calligraphy / Gardening & Paper Flower making.
