Our story began in 2018 in a small studio inside 107 Projects on Redfern St. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and a lovely lady booked in. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life.

In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy.

Our Classes bring people together, often in a circle around a table, whether it's for a sewing class, jewellery making or crafting, there's something special about being creative in a group together.

This was a fabulous class! Sophie was knowledgeable and extremely helpful from the refresher to the technical aspects of sewing the bag! I learned a lot, and got a beautiful bag out of it too. Highly recommend!
