Organised this as a birthday present for my Girlfriend. It was such a delightful experience. It was so much fun and the teacher was so helpful. Ended up making perfect signature scents of our own that we were so happy with. So many fragrance notes to choose from and plenty of time to perfect your creation. Really appreciated that it was only us two in the class too. Highly recommended this place to  + more

Steve and I were given this class as a gift from our son. It was fabulous to experience something completely different, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Glassblowing and Mosaic class review by Alex Mansfield - Sydney


Paul Peterson




"The best birthday gift I've ever had!" said my girlfriend after Tony's painting class. We were both absolute beginners and Tony patiently taught us the basics in a fun, educational, and hands-on way. He is both an expert and a natural motivator and his sunny artist studio was just a relaxing space to be inspired. I have no doubt he has lots to offer experienced painters, but if you're a beginner look  + more

I gave this pizza class to my partner as his bday present and we love it. We did the dough, next step we did our own pizza was an amazing experience. The group was also nice and we share our experiences with other couples that attended the class. Looking forward to invite some friends over for pizza night

Marie Mir




This was a birthday gift from my sons. I’ve always loved pottery and wanted to give it a try. It’s heaps of fun and very relaxing. I could have pottered all day. The teacher Shinhee, was quick to contact me soon after booking with all the necessary details and her mobile if needed. The studio is easy to find with available parking. You get to make a mug, jug, bowl and vase and then pick one of  + more

Had an amazing time! It was a Christmas gift from my son, who also participated in the class, which made it doubly special. Our teacher was amazing, so patient and she told us lots of interesting facts. We made pillow cases and found material we really liked which went so well on my couch later on!

I booked the three beginners pottery wheel classes as a Christmas present for my 14yo daughter and me. It was such a lovely way to spend time together and be creative.

Nicole Poblete




The class was a gift from my sister in Canada to my daughter who is 12. I came as well thinking 5hrs was a long time for her to be alone but she would have been fine. The teachers were super helpful and the technique was easy to pick up. My one regret was not picking a harder design for myself as I thought it would turn out bad, it being my first attempt and all. There was also a good amount of colours  + more

Grace Gilpin




I bought this class for my best friends birthday and can I say it did not disappoint! Polly was an absolute lovely human who taught us all about natural hair care products, essential oils and so so much more. I felt at ease in the classroom (which was beautiful btw) and I loved how passionate she is about natural skincare! It was so worth it, I left feeling inspired to be more natural in the products  + more

Natural Skincare Making Workshop review by Grace Gilpin - Sydney


Rebekah Page




Bought as a gift for my daughter (also bought myself one!) the teachers were helpful and informative. The venue was quaint, the workspace however a little small for each person. We both made two rings one “stacker” ring and then a thicker silver ring. My daughter and I both enjoy crafting classes and this would definitely be one to do again.

Specifics: It's held in a proper art room/studio room. There was about 12 of us total in our session groups of 2 and 3. Both hosts who run the event are super easy and nice but really engaging and help you get the hang of it. We stayed back afterwards and chatted about starting some resin projects at home and they are genuinely happy to give advice and make recommendations and show what they do on  + more

Tammy Luk




I purchased this experience with Henry for a dear friend as a Christmas gift as she had always been interested in having bees of her own. Henry’s class had exceeded all expectations and was really beginner friendly. Henry created a relaxed environment for everyone and took the time to explain all of the processes and parts of bee keeping and happily answered any questions or curiosities you had.  + more
