Dragon Boat Racing Origins


Imagine the perfect morning on the bank of a tranquil river. The water is slow-moving and glassy. The only sounds are birds chirping and a gentle breeze whispering through the grass. You are relaxed.   Now, imagine you begin to hear some distant sounds of movement coming from up river. Maybe ...

The Colourful History of Jewellery Making


I'd never tried jewellery classes in Sydney before. When I was a kid, my mother took me to meet one of her friends for an afternoon lunch.    We had to pick her up at her house, she explained, because Betty was blind and couldn’t drive herself. Having never met a blind person before, ...

Grab a Skateboard and Get Rolling


For various reasons, many people overlook skateboarding as a hobby. It is reserved mainly for young, cool kids with trendy fashion sense and a seeming imperviousness to pain.   So it may come as a surprise that skateboarding as a sport and a hobby has been creating buzz in various professional ...

Try Not to Smile in an Ukulele Class


It’s difficult to imagine a happier instrument than the ukulele. Light, twinkling musicality aside, the mere appearance of the small stringed-instrument, miniature and cute, invokes a feeling of joy. Just do a quick search for ukulele covers of your favorite songs, or attend music classes in Sydney ...

Learn to Make Japanese Sweets in Sydney


A typical Japanese bakery will have wagashi. In fact, they won’t just have wagashi. Most likely, they will have many, many types of the bite-sized sweet Japanese treats. As you peruse your options, it will be difficult to pinpoint just one tantalizing option: there are small, soft green balls, ...

Save Money and Become Your Own Barista


Maybe it’s irrational, that happiness that we feel at pouring the morning’s first cup after learning how at coffee classes in Sydney. There is something intoxicating about it: the aroma, the thin film of foam, the swirling galaxy of cream and black coffee. We hold the warm mug in our hands ...

Japanese Calligraphy Gets Your Focus Back


Whenever I see the Japanese calligraphy, shodo, I am astounded. I have trouble enough writing legibly with a pencil, let alone create a work of art with something as permanent as black ink. Even games of Pictionary are a disaster for my shaky and untrained hand.   But I shouldn’t be ...

Cocktail Making in Sydney


I’ll admit it. When a friend of mine invited me to go to a local bar to try out a popular new mixologist who runs cocktail making classes in Sydney, I didn’t understand the hype. What could a mixologist do that a bartender couldn’t? Was there anything that unique about putting alcohol ...

Find Balance with Ikebana Flower Arranging


To the untrained eye, ikebana may seem like just a few flowers in a bowl. The translation of the name doesn’t shed much light, with ike meaning “arrange” or “alive” and bana meaning “flower (1).” Ikebana is also sometimes referred to in relation to kado or “the ...

Make Your Own T-shirt with Screen Printing


As a teenager in a primary school art class, I had no idea what screen printing was, but from what I could see of the press in front of me, it was going to be complicated.   The contraption had several limbs branching out at different angles like some kind of advanced, spinning robot ready for ...

Fun Activities to Fit Your Busy Schedule


In this day and age, everyone is busy. It seems almost a social misdemeanor to not be (or at least claim to be) busy, all the time. Many of us are working long hours, often with overtime. Some of us work weekends. With our portable devices, it’s so much easier to stay glued to work, and it’s ...
