Pen Makers Workshop
Founded by Professor Paul Cheung, Pen Makers Workshop aspires to foster the use and love of pens, the instrument for message and knowledge sharing for centuries, through making hand-crafted pens.
About Our Workshop
The Pen Makers Workshop was founded by Professor Paul Cheung in 2018 with a vision to foster the love and use of pens, the instrument for sharing messages and knowledge for centuries, through hand-crafted pen making. All pens made in this workshop are uniquely hand-crafted from high quality hard wood, burl wood, tru-stone marble or acrylic resin.
Pen Making Classes
All students will take away a pen that they make themselves at the end of each class depending on their skill level.
The pen-making classes are divided into different levels:
Intro to Pen Making (2 hours)
Pen Making for Beginners (3 hours)
Intermediate Pen Making (3 hours)
Advanced Pen Making (3-4 hours)
SPECIAL NOTICE ON CLASSES DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Due to Covid-19 Pandemic, all scheduled pen making classes have been suspended for over a year until further notice. Interested parties are welcome to contact the Pen Makers Workshop for special arrangement.
Pens have for centuries been the key instrument in different cultures for archiving, recording, and sharing information, messages, stories, poetry and knowledge. With the rise of computers, humankind is at risk of losing the ability to write and use this instrument. Read more about our story how and why we set up this workshop.

Alex CHAN, Chief Adminstrator
I have won pen, amongst other things as prize, but I haven’t hand made a pen prior to joining PMW and it is a wonderful experience as you see your hand made pen starts to take shape and each other is so unique. One would love to write something with the pen.
I look forward to seeing you soon at Pen Makers Workshop. Let’s make Pen and write.

I hope to meet more like-minded people through the PMW !
