A Message from the Founder, Hala Al-Awadhi.

Why Followly?
Experience Kuwait's First One-stop Destination for booking Curated Workshops Exclusively in the Arts.
Practical Workshops by Passionate Masters of their Craft
"The Art of Things"

Have you ever felt eager to take up a hobby or interest, but didn't know where to start? I definitely have on many occasions. Perhaps you've always wanted to learn the guitar professionally, take up a passion in painting abstract landscapes, master that Taiwanese garlic chicken recipe or even experience a guide in food photography.  Likewise, there are teachers who are dedicated to their art form and are keen on sharing their craft with others. The most important thing is that, whether you are a learner or teacher, you are able to put your imagination and ideas into something tangible. For this very reason, we emphasize the special quality of practical, hands-on workshop experiences around Kuwait.

There are so many creative workshops out there that don't have a place to flourish. There's no specific "home" to these classes. Seasoned and passionate teachers need an area to be found and eager learners require a source to come to and find. This is why Followly came into existence. It's about building an effective online booking platform that will bring together the art of creating and expressing in one destination. Our aim is to gather practical workshops in the arts to move people to think, to feel, and to act with the power of the Arts. It's all about freedom, creativity, and the community feeling.

In this day and age, we are used to gaining access to all of this knowledge online and in virtual form. With Followly, we believe in live in-studio, in-person workshops with the craftsperson or artist. These experiences are free of digital distractions, filled with more energy and offer opportunities for exchange of ideas. There are many additional benefits in learning, let's say, the art of pottery such as hand-building, wheel-throwing, glazing and embellishing, through one-on-one or group interactions.

We are always on the lookout for quality workshop experiences across Kuwait and even beyond across the MENA region, to bring you a huge selection of classes in the Arts. We built this platform to support and promote artists, artisans, craftspeople, and all things art!

Our slogan, 'The Art of Things', is inspired by the notion that art is all around us. It can be experienced in cooking, in reading, in selecting that perfect plant for your home, in molding a piece of clay. Art is in everything. And that is what we celebrate on Followly.

So, what would you like to learn the art of?
