I'm Elin from Korea. I studied Art in France and Kids Art Therapy in Korea. I also obtained certificates in making flower rice cake and needle felting.

Ever since I started teaching Korean language to French students and art to kids in France, I’ve been teaching for 16 years to all sorts of age groups ranging from 2 to 70 years old.

As much as I love seeing students smiling during the class, I always do my best to make sure my class is fun and easy. Also, I consider final results of the class are very important. But you don’t have to worry even if you don’t have any prior experience in arts. I will help you to easily follow the class and enjoy the amazing results at the end of the class.

Primary goal for Elin’s Classes for kids is to make sure that kids can spend the happiest time. Kids also need fun stress-relieving activities just like adults, in order to keep them happy without any worries. Fun and creative crafts, using various materials, will help boost kids’ creativity.

My professional background has always been about kids, which I loved a lot. I used to be a team manager at a well-known education company in Seoul. After that, I taught kids as a private tutor for 7 years. Most of my students took my class for a long time until I left Korea, and we have been in touch with each other although I moved to Sydney 3 years ago. I can be the best mentor for your kids, not just a teacher.
I hope we can enjoy a class together soon!

Elin our teacher was absolutely lovely, she gave clear instructions on how to get to the class location and what to bring, the classroom was professionally set up with inspiration pieces and all the tools we needed to get started. The class was so much fun and our felt dogs turned out perfectly. I would definitely recommend this class to family and friends.

Elin was very friendly and helpful. Our dogs turned out great even though we’d never done it before!

Elin's Classes are wonderful and she is an excellent teacher. I actually requested a private class to work on a needle-felted mouse project after I became a bit obsessed by mouse Christmas decorations. We looked at some photos of mice and example decorations and we decided to make a grey mouse. I found Elin to be patient, fun and encouraging. She gave me lots of helpful tips like where to find wool and I feel much more confident now to get started on future projects. Her dog Mochi also attended the class and is super friendly! It was a wonderful way to spend a morning and I would very happily do another class with Elin (and Mochi).

Elin was a very patient teacher and I was so grateful for the clear instructions and encouragement along the way so that I went from not knowing anything about need felting to making a mini replica of my dog. Thank you Elin for your time.

The teacher was excellent, and very knowledgeable about different dog breeds and how to create them. I have never needle felted before, and I felt well supported by Elin to create something very cute in only two hours. I loved being greeted by Elin's dog Mochi too.

Elin was such a fun teacher. We had a great time bonding as a team and making our key chains. It was my first felting class and I'd love to do another one. Banjo was very confused when he met his key ring. I would thoroughly recommend Elin's class.

I had the best time at this workshop! Elin had a very kind, bubbly personality and was very hands on and helpful with all of her instructions. I loved the class because not only do I LOVE my dog but it gave me an opportunity to try a new craft and skill that I had never learnt/heard of before.
Thank you Elin! Would highly recommend this class to anyone :)

Had so much fun in this workshop. The teacher was very helpful and hands on. She explained each step clearly and in a way that was easy to understand. Not only did I walk away with a cute puppy keychain, but also an understanding of how to produce more little creatures in the future and where to purchase the needed materials.

I would highly recommend this class to craft and dog lovers alike! :)

Had a great time with Elin and Mochi. It took a while for me to understand the concept of felting but after a while of stabbing away, it became more fun as my dog was forming! Great to gift to a dog lover.

Elin’s workshop was amazing The venue was clean and easily accessible. Very well organised. Elin was energetic and enthusiastic. She was also very patient and always commending. Her skills and talent were amazing. Yet she was able to make us all feel talented! The end product was absolutely more than we expected, especially since we virtually made it ourselves, with guidance from her and a bit of help. A very unique workshop, especially for dog lovers. Would highly recommend

Had the best time creating a keychain of my mini labradoodle!

Elin's class was so well organized. She had all the materials set up prior to our arrival. Elin was so helpful, and encouraging. She was a pleasure to have as a teacher. She has a very cute dog as well, so bonus points for that!

I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who's obsessed with their dog and who loves crafting. Although it's a keychain, I plan on using mine as a Christmas tree ornament.

Thanks for an awesome class, Elin! Look forward to booking other classes with you

The teacher is really kind and patient and provide solid help and support in term of either the materials, or the skills or even the creativity, which made it a wonderful learning and practising experience.

Amy Song Jul 2022

Elin was very skilled and picked up details of our dogs from the picture straight away, guiding us through making our beloved dogs into realistic 3D figures! She was lovely, very accomodating and understanding and the space was very calming. Beautiful experience for any dog lovers out there in Sydney ♥️

Elin was really nice, friendly and supportive. She guided me through each step and helped me shape the wool along with showing me which needle to use. It was a really enjoyable and therapeutic class to have and learn a new skill. Plus, Elin's studio was easy to get to and very clean. Highly recommend for anyone that wants to try needle felting and has a pet they want to keep a memory of!
