Reconnect with your feminine with perfume making

Perfume has been loved by many women for centuries. In fact, history credits a woman named Tapputi as one of the world’s first perfume ateliers. In the 2nd millennium BC, Tapputi used distilled oils, flowers, roots and other aromatic herbs to create custom scents. Today, perfume making classes are the perfect invitation for women to reconnect with themselves. Channelling the passion and creativity of Tapputi, you’ll learn how to blend, balance and bottle your own signature fragrances from scratch.

Beginners are welcome, so don’t be shy if you don’t know the difference between your top, middle and base notes. Expert perfumers guide you through every step of the process, making this an experience gift for women that is ideal for complete beginners and budding aromatherapists alike. As well as enjoying the class itself, you or your giftee will leave with a custom collection of handmade perfumes to enjoy long after you step out of the studio.

The best part? You’ll gain a brand new skill set and the confidence to create your very own handmade DIY perfumes from scratch! In addition to being a thoughtful gift for daughters at Christmas, perfume making classes are one of the most fun things to do in Sydney with your bestie, sister or any other special lady in your life.

Transform glass into works of art

Sometimes, all that’s needed to relax, unwind and enjoy a little “me time” is a good crafting session. Mosaic classes fit the bill perfectly, combining hands-on crafts with plenty of opportunities to laugh, chat and connect with your friends and family. Held at studios across Australia, these classes teach you how to transform fragments of glass and ceramics into colourful works of art. From cute animal mosaics you can display in your garden, to kaleidoscopic Turkish lamps that will add an exotic touch to your home, you can’t go wrong when you gift her a mosaic class this Christmas.

If you’re based in Western Australia, our mosaic classes are one of the best things to do in Perth. Not only are they a creative outlet but they’re also a form of mindfulness. As you focus on the task at hand, you’ll find yourself melting into a state of deep relaxation. You’ll also leave with a brand new skill set and ideally, a newfound hobby you can continue to enjoy for years to come.

Looking for gifts for Mum? Inspire her to slow down and create her own mosaic art! Whether it’s a colourful lamp or a small trinket dish, Mum will have so much fun making her own mosaic masterpiece.

Ignite your creative spark with jewellery making
