Reviews from our gift recipients




Neville Sturwohld Jul 2021

Kokedama Making at Home



My Kokedama workshop lesson was a Christmas gift from my daughter. I thoroughly enjoy the class. The Plant Whisperer was a very clear and patient teacher. Haylee gave us clear instruction on what to do and gave us time and encouragement to complete each part of the lesson before moving on. We were encouraged to ask questions and show our work. I really had fun. It was messy, mud on the table  + more

Ink Drawing Workshop for Beginners



This class was just excellent! Everything we needed was supplied, the teacher was very knowledgeable and very approachable. You could come with no previous experience and come away with something you were proud of. The step by step approach made a good outcome almost inevitable. Highly recommended! Makes an excellent gift as well.

Make a Silver Ring Workshop



Well firstly, it was a belated well thought of more than middle age birthday gift from my two children that attended with me. The atmosphere was warm & typically Fitroy, having lived there in the 70's. Which was nice as well. Anyway as with most things it was what you bring with you as an individual in character as well. Cait was a natural and lovely young girl of a friendly & helpful disposition .  + more

Traditional Marbling Workshop: Turkish Ebru



What a marvelous way to spend a morning, making beautiful, traditional and contemporary Ebru (marbled papers). Our teacher was passionate and skilled in her Art form, and passed on that enthusiasm to the class. We learned several patterning methods, using the various hand-prepared colours and traditional awls and combs, and ended the session by marbling a fan, to add to our array of papers and gift  + more

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



I very much enjoyed the Beginner’s Kintsugi Workshop. It was a birthday gift from my daughter & a lovely way to spend the morning together. Miyoko was great teacher - very knowledgeable about the technique & history of Kintsugi & we chatted about travelling in Japan as well. Convenient location near Town Hall station. My daughter & I are very proud of our Kintsugi masterpieces - thank you!

Resin Art Workshop: Cheese / Tapas Board & Coasters



Brought this as a birthday gift for my mum. Great welcoming when we first arrived. Rochelle and Will we’re amazing. Will was a great teacher. He had a lot of knowledge with resin and different techniques that he showed and taught us. Great to talk to and always made you feel good about your decisions. All materials were provided, endless colours to choose from. Definitely worth going to this class.  + more

John Russell May 2021

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



Jun, our teacher, was excellent - very patient with our lack of skill and full of knowledge and helpful tips. The venue is small and spotless, so were all the varied tools provided. Everything was there, we did not need to bring a thing. The course was a gift to us, so we cannot comment on value for money, but we would be prepared to pay well for such a good course. the 2 hours just flew by, and we  + more

Fluid Art Workshop: Two in One



Loved the class! Chelsey is warm and generous. Chelsey has created a beautiful and relaxed space for art making. Such a gift for her students to learn in this meditative atmosphere. Chelsey explains the steps and methods clearly, and has lots of knowledge and technical experience to share. Explored new fluid techniques and Chelsey made working with resin fun and easy. Loved the results!

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop



A fabulous afternoon workshop with Hitomi learning the art of Kintsugi. I bought this as a gift for my sister and she loved it too. Hitomi is very knowledgeable, patient, and a great teacher. I love the plate I 'mended' and plan to do more. Thank you Hitomi from Penny-san and Anne-san

Alix Thoeming Apr 2021

Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginners



The class was fantastic! I took my mum for a birthday present and it was perfect for that. Hitomi taught us a lot, not just about the process of kintsugi but about the history behind it as well. She was very patient with us and made sure that we left with a beautiful finished product. We will definitely be back!

Anna Coleman Apr 2021

Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginners



I bought this as gift for my daughter and we attended together, It was so good I’d do It again. I received an sms in the morning to let me know what to do when we arrived, that was helpful. Our teacher Hitomi was extremely informative and explained the history of kintsugi and how she and her husband became involved with it. We were provided with written information and an ample supply of equipment  + more

Resin Art Workshop: Cheese / Tapas Board & Coasters



Bought vouchers for Christmas gift and had a really enjoyable morning with my step-daughter. Michelle was friendly, fun and generous with her time and assistance. Nothing was too much trouble. We both came away feeling that we could replicate the techniques we’d been taught and very satisfied with what we’d made. I can thoroughly recommend this experience.

Simon Gough Apr 2021

Japanese Kokedama Making Workshop



We attended the kokedama class as a birthday present and it was a wonderful experience. The process was well-explained, along with a lot of advice on technique, care, and suggestions on how to decorate with the kokedama once we brought them home. We went home with four kokedama and an eagerness to learn more — would definitely recommend the class to others!

Turkish Mosaic Lamp Class



This was a present to my mum from my wife and daughters - a girls' outing. They all had an amazing time and were really happy with the teacher, and the time taken to ensure their lamps were perfect. Well worth the money, and highly recommended.

Silver Letter Ring Workshop



The experience has been extremely lovely. This is our first time getting to know how rings are made and getting involved in hands on experience. Hee Cho was warm, friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend anyone who wants to make a special gift or create an unique memory with your cared one.

This was a Xmas gift from my daughter and she got it spot on (as usual). I loved the class; Rachel was an awesome teacher, the room was well set out as was the class.

Pottery Wheel Workshop: Embrace Wheelfulness



This booking was a birthday gift when I could not think of anything else to get and I was looking forward to it for many months, but only as something small and low key. Bettina was a charming, knowledgeable, patient but directive teacher. She is highly successful because she is passionate, but also keeps group sizes small and personal. We were all successful in turning out two items, so clearly the  + more

Silver Ring Making Class



Received this voucher as a Christmas gift - love it! A great way to spend an afternoon, and a different type of activity to do. Nice open space as a venue. Good handout and all the tools required. Roxanna wandered around and gave instruction and encouragement as required. Can’t wait to get our silver rings back in a few weeks and to see how they turned out!

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

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).

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.

Her kitchen is beautiful and a great setting to cook and have a delicious lunch in. Thank you  + more
