* Masterful Makers - DIY Workshops *

The art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as two hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalised skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer and maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.

My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings.

It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began.

That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!

I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces.

I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well.

Come and experience a Masterful Makers Workshop!

Excellent value for money, Victoria was brilliant to work with and absolutely hilarious. This has been by far the best class I have ever booked.
And on top of everything, I learned much more than anticipated!
10/10 would recommend!

It was a great workshop. I really enjoyed it. I loved the piece that I created.

Michael & Ros Biggs Feb 2024


Victoria seemed very pleasant and personable but was quite disorganised during our class. We didn't feel we were guided in making candles, more like watching her do! We requested and did receive some written instructions afterwards - we would suggest having these provided at the time of the class as a routine.

Probably not the best value for money.

Isabella Sazdanovska Feb 2024


Hobby
Teacher was friendly, bubbly and very knowledgeable, I would recommend attending this class
Got more candles than we thought we would with loads of options
Good value for money
Liked the learning and options

Max Dijkstra Feb 2024


No improvement! I think the phone number I found online was wrong because I couldn’t initially reach her via call - but it all worked out and was the most fun!

Jenny Merillo Feb 2024


Victoria is a very good teacher., the class was very relax
I learnt a lot in a short time, on how to tie knot's for pearl necklaces.
Victoria. provided all the necessary tools, the lesson was very good value for money.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Malay making experience.
Victoria was patient and very helpful with guiding me through the steps.
The semi precious beads were plentiful with colour, many choices with the silk and tassels.
The studio was cosy, I’m very happy with how my Mala turned out.
I’m inspired!

My partner and i made rings with veronica for our anniversary and it was the best way to spend an anniversary. Veronica was super friendly, helpful and funny. My partner and i had a blast making these rings and will always have a great reminder of our love. I would recommend this to anyone who would listen, 5 stars.

It was a relaxing class. Minimal contribution required to the final product. You need to have steady hands. The teacher was friendly and accommodating, however overall I didn't feel the experience and the final rings were worth the cost of $420.

Caid Upton Apr 2023


We had this booked for our anniverary night as it looked like a really fun creative and different type of thing to do. We had heaps of fun with Victoria and her friend, it was great conversation and lots of scent options. We just found this quite misleading from the ad here as we spent the night in the kitchen making the candles, while only really doing half of the work so not entirely DIY. I think we had set our expecations off the pictures on the listing where it would be a bit more creative and hands on with more options on decorating them. Where as there wasn't any colour add ins for the wax or choice of vessel for the candles so it was kind of plain and underwhelming. We were hoping for more of a professional setting as pictured. Hopefully in the future they can refine the class to the above to make it a bit more enjoyable considering the price.

Fantastic and fun experience with a great teacher. It was great to be able to press on our own designs with her mountain load of stamps and be able to take part in making our own jewellery.

I can’t believe I did this wahay an experience. She showed me what to do and said your turn. I kept on saying ‘I did I it’ Those beautiful tools. A beautiful studio to do it from.She is a really fun person . I had a few laughs at myself. It is something people should try. It’s making something so special but for anyone. Proud of myself.this is finger my ring will go on when it’s finished I’ll take another later.

I booked this class as a special birthday gift for myself. I had chosen the class specifically for the Dream Manifestation aspect of the workshop along with the gorgeous crystals and stones shown in the promo photos.


+Friendly instructor and the most gorgeous dog
+Fun and spacious workshop space
+Good range of tools and patterns to emboss your trinkets
+Received a glass of ice cold water, which I needed as it was hot
+I liked my final designs

-There was no dream manifestation or spiritual element to this class, one of the main reasons I booked this class.
- I was offered only a small selection of silver plated trinkets to emboss. I was not offered any stones, crystals or different coloured metals to use as per the advertisement photo.
-Instructor did not learn or ask for my name until the end of the class (even though I was the only person in the class) and I knew her name and her dog's name.
-The clasp on my necklace broke four hours later when I was out at dinner :(
-No much of vibe happening- no music, nibbles, or fan (it was humid)

Leisa McBride Mar 2023

The bead board is used, scuff marks, slide marks on the bottom, red maybe nail polish on the top and dirty. The tweezer’s are dirty and used.
There was no Sterling silver guru bead, just a gold coloured shell.
The beads silver coloured not gemstone. yellow beads and clear beads with markings. The 0.9mm thread can’t go through the silver or yellow beads without extreme force, even with my husband trying.
To say I am disappointed is an understatement, I was very much looking forward to the spiritual aspect of making a gemstone mala to be let down by used, dirty items and 4mm beads not appropriate for the 0.9mm cord.
No sterling silver guru bead.
Seller said they moved and it must be from that and offered to send a new bead board and silver bead. That is all. I said don’t bother. I didn’t even bother attending the video class. I wanted to leave 2 stars but then it wouldn’t let me upload a photo.

This was my first time making jewellery from scratch and I had heaps of fun! Victoria is so lovely and her class has such a welcoming environment. Victoria was able to turn my rudimentary idea into something beautiful that I can keep forever. I'll definitely return and try her other workshops in the future.

Margaret Dinh Feb 2023


Awesome class! Victoria is a thoughtful and insightful teacher. She's patient and always happy to share her wealth of knowledge. Throughout our design process she gave us many options and presented us with ways in which we could carry out our design.
Definitely recommend!

Soham Srivastava Feb 2023


Victoria was great and jovial. She made the class very fun.
The studio is in a new location and just what you need for small groups.
Materials were provided and Victoria has so much expertise, she knows how to make all sorts of designs.
Good value for money as you walk away with a silver ring. Options are there for gold and platinum as well, but that's a little expensive.

Lauren Li Feb 2023


Amazing experience with Victoria!

She is such an amazing teacher, very vibrant personality making the class extremely fun. All in all walked out with beautiful rings. Definitely a memorable and fun experience!

*Tiara’s (little pug) a legend, definitely a plus*

This is a fun and creative class. Victoria is a fabulous teacher and is patient and funny.
She is so skilled. As a mum of 2 teenagers it’s a challenge to find activities we all agree on so this was the perfect workshop: Building on our ideas together, sharing tools and seeing our creations polished up. We all loved the course in the relaxed atmosphere. Thank you Victoria for something we will always cherish!

Ruby Elkan Jan 2023


I took my daughter (13) to do this experience. We were the only ones there, which initially really excited me.

The teacher was lovely and her pug was absolutely adorable.

I'm terms of value, while we had a good time, I'm not sure that I would call this a manifestation workshop.

There is no spiritual element to it. There's no part where you set intentions with the instructor and there's no theory behind crafting the jewelry in particular ways to make goals come to life etc.

It's basically a workshop to make an artsy pendant necklace, which my daughter enjoyed.

I specifically booked it for the spiritual element and got her all excited about setting goals. Helping with mental health and pumping her up for the year ahead But unfortunately i didn't feel like we left the workshop having even trapped into any of this shame

This was absolutely brilliant. Victoria is amazing at her craft and great company. My children did this (with me supervising) and every detail was an adventure. Have to admit - we are all super keen to get back and do this again and again. We LOVE the rings and were so excited to find out how the tools of the trade make it all possible. Magical day with an incredible mentor.

Victoria was a lovely teacher with all the skills and tools required to make our rings.
The venue itself a bit tricky to find, and daunting on the way in, but Victoria’s studio is a typical artsy affair.
The ring making and conversation were both enjoyable, and Victoria have plenty of time to make our rings.
Thanks again.

I can’t recommend this class enough! Victoria is such a patient teacher and really made this workshop into a great day. I booked this class with my 15 year old daughter and we both enjoyed learning little bits about working with silver and making memories. That we also walked out with something pretty we’d made to remind us was a bonus.

Karen Claren Oct 2022


Major disappointment and false advertising.
It's taken me some time to write this, to reflect and research to be be fair, and get over the shock.
This 2.5hour "course" (8pm to 10.30pm) fell short in all manners of expectations.
It was a 20 minute activity, which was only drawn out to 9.30 pm by us watching the teacher manically prepare as we arrived, and engaging her in conversation through a, series of questions about her, her art her life.
The candle bit, focus of our 170$ "course" (reduced to a still exorbitant $120, - thanks to NSW 50 voucher) consisted of:
-10min supervision of melting 2x 180g of soy wax chips scented with a tablespoon of essence
-sticking a prefabricated 2x mesh to the base of 2x prebought coloured glass moulds
-5 second hot wax pour into each mould

And that's it.

We had to do another trip the next day back to the city to collect our chilled and set candles.

The advert stated making a 3xweek 800g candle, with another smaller bonus candle.
Not true.
We got two make 2x small 180g single wick candles.

No learning of making wicks, shapes, or much else.

A total outrageous rip off

The teacher, créative for sûre, was manic, unprepared when we arrived.

Calling this à course is a far stretch of the imagination.
Its a workshop (activity) not with more than 45mins to include chit chat, and a max fee of 60$

Candle Making class review by Katherine Frederickson - Sydney

Rebecca Houlahan Aug 2022


Victoria was energetic and fun, and clearly explained the purpose of all the different tools and how to use them. She gave us plenty of time to practice with the materials provided to figure out how to make the patters and choose what we wanted to actually put on the ring. We had a 15-20 minute break in the middle, and there are cafe's nearby where you can easily grab a coffee or a snack.

I came in with a bunch of pictures from Pinterest with some ideas and Victoria was able to help us take concepts from much more complicated rings and make them work with the beginners workshop, it was great!

Victoria is quite a character - lots of laughs & interesting conversation.
I would like to go back to do some one on one classes so I do more hands on & use the tools to make the ring.

Victoria was amazing; so welcoming and clearly very knowledgeable. The venue is really unique and Victoria's studio was perfect for a small group.
We loved the different options Victoria gave us, allowing us to make a ring that felt really personal.
Good value for money! Perfect team building exercise (which is what we used it for) and easy for a beginner 'taste' of jewelry designing. Victoria does most of the work for you but you get to stamp and help finish your piece.
I wish we'd brought wine! That was the one thing we could have done to make it better.

I attended two of the classes and decided not to attend the remaining classes. I missed the start of the first classes due to my box not arriving on time. I contacted teacher, covid was used as an excuse, no apology. Fair enough. I asked for tracking number and when I received the number it had only been lodged the day before. This was two weeks out form my order. I receive my order and it's missing half. Contact teacher again. No apology, states that covid delays were to blame. Didn't feel the need to advise me that I was missing half of my order. Finally attend first class after waiting 20 minutes for the teacher to log in. Had tried phoning her, no answer. She gets into the session and makes an excuse of she forgot. She is clearly disinterested and put out that she is having to be there. Second class, again she has not logged in, try calling, tried emailing, no response. An hour later I get an email saying "I've been locked out of my apartment, it's not my fault" Her lack of communication and her disinterest was enough to turn me off. I asked for the remainder of my things to be sent and never returned. This happened in 2021, things may have changed since then. I hope they have.

Teacher's response

Hi James,

We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your classes and apologise for the issues, last year when you first booked your classes there were a lot of supply shortages due to COVID.
I would like to apologise again and have organised to have half the original fee refunded through ClassBento.

Take care

Victoria was very nice over zoom and answered all my questions. However the class first had to be rescheduled because the package didn’t arrive, no thanks to Australia post, and then due to technical difficulties the 10am class was shifted to 12pm which was inconvenient because I had a painting class to get to afterwards.

Victoria was incredibly knowledgeable but, most importantly, full of positive energy and great vibes! We’re thinking about doing some other jewellery courses! It was great to see the finished product and have a huge sense of accomplishment :)

Deborah Xuereb Mar 2022


This class was hugely overpriced and terrible value for money. The studio premises were tiny, dingy and cramped. There was no signage on the street front and we had to call to seek entry to the building. The class was advertised as a two and a half hour class, but after an hour and a quarter it was over. I expected to receive some guidance in fragrance mixing but all fragrances were pre-mixed and there was not a great selection from which to choose. So basically, we were shown how to melt wax, add fragrance, place a wick and pour wax into the vessel.
Victoria was bright and bubbly but this really was not worth the $170 per person. There were three of us so it was a very easy $510 for her for an hour or so with very little outlay. Not recommended.

Brooke Rickard Mar 2022


A fun, creative class, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Victoria is lovely, very friendly and guides you through each step with laughter and a good chat. I quite enjoyed and the mandala is beautiful.

Mark Burgess Feb 2022


This was a great fun class. It really is 'make a ring in day' and my partner and I created rings that we will both wear and enjoy everyday. Victoria guides you through the creative process in a fun, engaging and practical way.

I had a great morning with Victoria who showed me the steps in making a simple leather card holder.

In her busy workshop, I got to use a nice soft black leather, shown how to punch holes for stitching, how to stitch, finish the edges of the leather then adding chrome clasp.

I look forward to going again for something more challenging.

For anyone who's been wanting to start learning how to make their own jewellery for a long time, this is the perfect place to start and it's not an intimidating class/workspace at all.

Victoria was very welcoming and is a very good, and patient, teacher. We had fun making our Malas and we both bought more beads to make another one at home. It was definitely good value and I would recommend it

The demonstrations showed me what to do clearly and were explained comprehensively.
I was also directed to the teacher's video recordings if I needed to review them later.

I’ve had 2 lessons so far and am really excited to keep learning and fine tuning my skills. Victoria is super friendly and accommodating. The materials supplied are well organized and give a range of techniques to try.

Victoria has amazing knowledge of jewellery making and is a fabulous teacher. She has expertise across a vast range of metals, gemstones and the techniques involved in creating a stunning piece of jewellery from the materials available. She is also very mindful of the students vision of what they would like to create. The workshop was a wonderful experience.

Such a good class! Went with my friend to set some beautiful new year vibes and had a wonderful time. Victoria was warm and very helpful and absolutely love my mala. Lots of options and extremely good value. Took our new treasures out for lunch locally after class and made a day of it. HIGHLY recommended!

It says on the website, *9kt gold is included as part of the course. 14k or 18k is available but will have to be purchased,But once I arrived I was told gold would cost me extra.This is false advertising & feel taken advantage of I won’t be wearing my ring as it is a reminder.I paid $420 for a ring I could buy for $120.I will be complaining to class bento.

Victoria was lovely and fortunate to have one on one time with her. She also booked and arranged for supplies and happily guided me to what would work best to begin with. Really enjoyed the session.

My friend and I made beautiful rings under the direction of Victoria. She was a great teacher and lots of fun to be with. Thanks Victoria! I am inspired to try more metalwork.

Had the most lovely afternoon with the extremely talented Victoria! She was so charismatic, funny and kind, and extremely supportive! Went through things clearly both verbally and with examples and was generous with her knowledge throughout. The venue was lovely, nice and open air, although would probably only recommend for 2-3 people. The materials were high quality and she clearly knew what she was talking about. Couldn’t recommend this enough!

This was good fun. All the materials arrived beforehand and it was fun to have immediate results by the end of the first 45min class. I'm looking forward to my next class! Thank you.
