Creative Date Ideas in Sydney

So you've got a special day or night coming up, with a special someone and you're in need of date night ideas in Sydney. Perhaps a celebration of a milestone, like an anniversary, a birthday, or a promotion. Or maybe it's early days and you're eager to impress, and to get to know your partner a little better. Or maybe you've been dating for a while, and it's time for something a little different, something unconventional, to spark things up again.

Finding fun things to do as a couple in Sydney can be challenging, and it can be hard to come up with romantic ideas that aren't overly cheesy.

Many simpler activities like a nice dinner or walk can be great, but relying on these can get a bit tedious after a while. You might want to use them as accompaniments to a more special, and memorable main course. Which brings us to the questions...

 

Would you like something that's quite unique, something that your partner hasn't experienced before?

A meaningful activity which allows you to really bond with your girlfriend / boyfriend / wife / husband?

Perhaps something highly rated, so you're not the guinea pig for someone's brand new idea? Or perhaps you're looking for quarantine date ideas in Sydney?

 

Try a creative class. Escape with your partner, away from the hustle and bustle of your busy lives, for an intimate and different experience that will stretch your imaginations. Learn a new skill or two, and take away your crafty creations to enjoy for years to come. Everything's provided, so just bring your partner (and some wine if you like, to get those creative juices flowing).

Whether you're looking for something on a weekend, after work hours (or during), something last minute or planning ahead, here are just a few of our favourites:

 

Terrarium making

 

 

Treat your partner (and yourself) to the fun and relaxing experience of creating your very own mini garden landscape in a bowl. You'll get insider tips from the florists at Merchant and Green, who will show you their simple recipe for creating a suitable environment for your plants to thrive. Pick from a wide selection of petite succulents or their leafier cousins, and build a cute little world around them with your choice of pebbles, feature stones, moss, twigs, and even a little figurine of a wolf or giraffe if you want to make it a bit playful. 

You'll be surrounded by greenery, including the usual suspects like roses, but also Australian natives, and rarer specimens like cotton, as you take the class in the midst of Merchant and Green's Redfern floristry, just minutes from the Sydney CBD. With the class limited to just the two of you, you'll travel along at your own pace - and you might appreciate the extra time to think leisurely about how you want to compose your garden. The team will give you lots of guidance and interesting trivia, but you'll also get lots of space to express yourselves through your handiwork, and really make this experience your own. You'll leave your day-to-day worries at the door, as you put on your aprons and get your hands dirty, and just lose yourselves in the experience. 

You'll take home your terrariums, expertly crafted and totally unique, and super easy to take care of. They'll last for years to come, as will your fond memories of the time you spent here together.

 

Pottery

Relationships are a bit like clay. Malleable, taking all sorts of shapes and forms, and, when treated right, incredibly durable and lasting through decades. 

So why not take this metaphor to the next level, by enjoying an intimate pottery class for two. You'll join expert potter Leanne Berelowitz in her personal cosy studio, where she'll teach you how to work with clay, and how you can tame it and shape it with your hands and/or a pottery wheel. There's nothing quite as down to earth. From a core cylindrical shape, you might create cups, bowls, or something completely unexpected.

 

Candle making

 

 

Nothing quite symbolises romance like candles (except for maybe flowers, we'll get to that shortly). An evening spent with just the two of you, with a flickering flame casting a warm and subtle glow on your surroundings - it's perfect for creating a sensual, relaxing and yet exciting atmosphere, where possibilities are close at hand, ready to be uncovered.

Set yourself up, by creating your very own candles, either in the comfort of your own home, or in the teacher's venue. You'll be guided by Elena of Bellanina Creations, who will show you, step by step, how to make these 100% natural candles, using eco-soy wax, and housed in beautiful glass. You'll have a wide variety of fragrances to choose from, so you'll be sure to find ones that you'll love. 

 

Flower arranging

 

 

A bouquet of flowers can say so much. Let you and your partner's hands do the talking, as you shape your very own arrangement. Learn about the techniques to select and combine flowers and leaves harmoniously, under the guidance of one of ClassBento's expert florists. Choose from the season's freshest blooms, and if you're not up for a traditional bouquet, you can try a Japanese-style Ikebana arrangement, where elegance and simplicity are the focus or celebrate Australia's natural beauty by creating a bouquet with Australian native flora.

 

 

If you like the idea of a creative class for your next date or special occasion but didn't see something specific that you liked here, go ahead and browse our full range of workshops. From cooking to painting, photography to calligraphy, and even juggling, you're sure to find something that will amaze your better half.
