I loved this class, Farida gave us the freedom to create our own design, and was supportive throughout the process. It was really wholesome as her daughter and husband were present to help us along with different stages of the process. They cared so much to help us achieve great results. It was conducted really professionally yet felt like a family affair. I have recommended this class to friends  + more

I really enjoyed the workshop, which was a gift from my children. Belle is such an energetic and helpful teacher. The venue is really accessible with free parking. The flowers were beautiful, very fresh and plentiful. The class was a lovely way to spend two hours and I proudly took home the gorgeous bouquet I created and wrapped myself.

I purchased this class for two as a mother’s day present and it was absolutely wonderful. The teachers Vincent and Izzy were knowledgeable, easily approachable and entertaining.

Took myself and my mum to the beginners pottery wheel workshop this past weekend. Janine is lovely, so skilled and a great teacher. We created 3 super cute pottery pieces and will return to glaze them when they're ready. We really enjoyed our workshop and I am keen to return to create more pieces.

We did this as a Mothers Day gift for all of the Mums in the family. A great catch up over an activity. A range of ages from teens to octogenarians and this suited everyone. We all had the best time. The teaching was exemplary, breaking it down and not leaving anyone behind. This meant we all came away with a piece we were very proud of. I would definitely recommend this class to everyone. We can’t  + more

This was the most wonderful and fun experience! I am not artistic at all but it was loads of fun and we are proudly displaying both of our paintings in our loungeroom and it will be such a good memory to think back on!! There were a couple of moments where I thought I'd really failed and gone too wrong to recover but Hart was so amazing and wonderful and guided me each time on how I could get past  + more

Sejal McDougall

Fun class given to us as a gift for my husbands birthday. The 2 of us had a chance to do something fun together which we don't usually get. Venue had easy parking at the weekend. We've realised how hard pottery throwing is but the teacher was really helpful and made the class funny. We had the choice of what to make and George the teacher was very accommodating.
