Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop

I surprised my beautiful friend Jane with this Kintsugi class as a gift for her birthday, especially fitting for a friend who, like me and so many others, came through difficult times stronger and with a renewed sense of love and appreciation for ourselves and for the priceless gifts we gained from our painful experiences an outcome perfectly reflected in the philosophy of Kintsugi: embracing scars  + more

Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class

This course was extremely fun and great value for money. The teacher was fun and quirky and the venue had a great atmosphere and set up. You get to learn a variety of dumpling making techniques whilst sipping on delicious cocktails. A great present idea for a partner/friend.

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

Art Kintsugi Workshop - Private

We had such a great time with Yoko learning about traditional kintsugi while also doing our own art kintsugi with materials we could find at Bunnings. I bought it as a birthday present for my fiancé and he loved it. The plate we repaired was really beautiful, so I can't wait to see what the end product looks like in a few days. I'm strangely excited for the next time we break a plate, so that we can  + more

Bottom's Up Cocktail Lunch

The class was very informative and you learn how to make the two most ordered cocktails. You make the first cocktail, they feed you, and then you make the second one, and they feed you again! The food was good too (tacos, chips, grilled corn etc.). Definitely a good present for someone that loves their cocktails, or just want to learn the basics on how to make them.

She has a nice cooking studio featuring all required appliances and decorated with previously made cakes. Nothing was needed prior to the lesson, we were provided with aprons and all the necessary tools and ingredients. This class  + more

Vegan and Gluten Free Japanese Cooking Class

Sumi’s class was amazing. We took a friend as a birthday gift and we all had a great time. Sumi has a very interesting background and was clearly very passionate and knowledgable about food, we came away feeling confident to recreate the dishes at home, and source good ingredients thanks to Sumi’s tips. Her kitchen is beautiful and a great setting to cook and have a delicious lunch in. Thank you  + more

Jelly Flower Art Class

Fantastic lesson with very experienced and talented teacher. This art form takes a lot of practice to perfect. Clear and concise instructions, easy to follow. Venue easy to find. Just the right amount of encouragement to prevent from giving up. I endorse this activity as a gift for someone creative or as a new skill for yourself.

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!

Mindful Art Kintsugi at Home

This morning I had a class with Yoko and it was just perfect. I learned about art (Kintsugi) and made my own beautiful mended plate. The kit was very good quality and well put together. I loved the end product and the experience of making it too. I highly recommend the class and it was a great choice of gift from a special friend. Yoko is so patient and great at explanation of each step.

Mindful Art Kintsugi at Home

My daughter and I spent a thoroughly enjoyable few hours under Yoko's expert tutelage learning the art of Kintsugi. We were both so impressed by Yoko’s gentle guidance, depth of knowledge and most of all, attention to detail (right down to the green tea and lolly that came in our respective boxes!). I would never consider myself as ‘arty’ however that was OK and to be honest I found the experience  + more

Bottom's Up Cocktail Lunch

Exceptional value for money. We learnt about the history and production process for rum, and then made two cocktails step by step. So smoothly run, exceptional drinks and the plentiful food provided (at two different points in the workshop) was a highlight. This was a birthday present for me and it was such a lovely way to spend the evening. Thanks Brix

Beautiful cotton fabrics and wax mailed ahead of time. Super easy, a lot of fun and Fran is a brilliant teacher! Made 3 beautiful wax wraps, great value. Thank you

We had the best experience with our teacher. Unfortunately due to COVID our Bento box was a little delayed in arriving to Tasmania.
