Smartphone Photography Class



Tutor, Peter, presented a wealth of photography experience and knowledge to our small group of six that allowed group interaction and one to one advice (in a COVID safe way). Discussion progressed through the basic (but often unknown) smartphone features, many of the 10 aspects of composition and then included many of the skills of enhancement to present a resultant image that would impress any  + more

Eco Candle Making Class



My husband and I enjoyed this soy candle making workshop at Handmaker’s Factory. This was our Christmas gift for each other. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. It’s good to be able to bring the finished candle projects home and light them up to enjoy it. Nicole is a very good teacher.

DIY Homemade Gnocchi



I did the class with my son as a gift for his birthday - he loves all things Italian. The gnocchi recipe was simple and delicious. Enjoyed the class which was practical and the presenter gave great tips and was very approachable too! Best of all the gnocchi was delicious - have recommended the class to all my friends and family - some even who live overseas given they can log in via Zoom!

Casual Mosaic Classes



My workshop today was a Christmas gift from my husband and I really enjoyed the experience. The time was 10am to 1pm but I didn’t finish my piece until 2.30pm and was not rushed at all which I really appreciated. Merryl’s workspace, materials and facilities are wonderful I plan to attend again.

Essential Oil Blending and Perfume Workshop



This class was a birthday present for my daughter at her suggestion. Fabulous gift as it turns out! We had a tiny experience of essential oils but you don't need to as Cat gave an outline and demonstration of how to mix oils to give a pleasing outcome. We had plenty of time to experiment in the funky city fringe venue which was very adequate for the class. We had access to a vast array of oils to experiment with. It was a lot of fun. Perhaps related to exposure to the oils, and/or using under-used senses and right brain hemisphere, we were both  + more

Polymer Clay Workshop: Statement Earrings



This is the second polymere clay class I’ve done and each time you learn something new. Sheree is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, the classes have a great atmosphere and you get to take home some of your own jewellery as well as a little gift box.

Hand Building with Clay Workshop



Great class for beginners and I’d love to do another. Daisy explained everything up front, and patiently helped us with questions (or fixing any issues!) throughout. The tumbler as a gift was a lovely bonus. Looking forward to seeing how my pieces turn out once they’re glazed and fired.

Loved it, easy to follow, although a bit tricky at points. I got it as a present for mothers day and in turn for my mum for her mothers day. My mum is now obsessed, haha
