Gift a crafty couple mosaic classes
Know a craft-loving couple who are always on the lookout for fun things to do in Melbourne? We present to you casual mosaic classes from Merryl’s Mosaics and Glass Studio. Making DIY mosaics is a creative practice that allows crafters to step back from the hustle of daily life and take a mindful moment for themselves. At these mosaic classes it’s no different – couples will be able to select from over 100 templates of mosaic art to complete over the course of the session. From a picture frame to house a cherished image to or even an art piece of an animal, the options are endless.
Plus, if the couple really enjoys learning how to make a mosaic, they can always add an extra session onto this class, using it to create a bigger piece of mosaic wall art. All mosaic supplies will be provided – enthusiasm and an open mind are all that’s necessary to bring along!
Treat a Brisbane-based couple to candle making classes
Candles bring a sense of peace and restoration to a home space – but they can be expensive if burned through regularly. That’s why classes on how to make scented candles are becoming so popular, as people are keen to learn how to make homemade candles to bring light and aromatherapy to any room.
A soy candle making workshop makes a great addition to any list of anniversary gifts for couples who live in Brisbane and are keen to take a mindful moment together. Couples can spend a few blissful hours learning how to make soy candles of differing sizes and understanding the safest way to work with soy wax in order to make a DIY candle. While waiting for the candles to set, everyone will also be able to enjoy an afternoon tea – offering the perfect chance for a chat over a soul-warming cup of something tasty. Looking for Christmas presents for couples who are hard to buy for? We've got you covered!
