Creative Craft Play Workshop for Kids (6+ Years)


Perfect activity for kids, the teacher was so lovely, friendly and awesome with the kids. The facilities were clean, open and bright. The materials provided were plentiful and the kids created lots of beautiful art. We will be back again for sure Thank you!

Ceramic Plate Workshop


A great 2 hour class - easy, clear instructions and everything we needed was supplied. Would definately consider other workshops. There is also a great shopfront downstairs


Sarah Crawford  •  Jan 2021

Ceramic Plate Workshop


A very fun workshop! All materials were provided and pace was flexible for different skill and experience levels. Would definitely recommend it!

Ceramic Plate Workshop


The class was very easy to follow. Josephine was a wonderful instructor, learnt a few tips along the way!


Kylie McLaren  •  Jan 2021

Ceramic Plate Workshop


Everthing was supplied for participants to have a very enjoyable time. Time frame was just right. The only draw back is the parking but that is out of your control unfortunately.

Plaster Painting Workshop for Kids (5+ Years)


Kylie was a fabulous teacher!
The girls had a great time and were so excited to show off their work when they got home.
Would love to see plenty more kids classes available, esp during the holidays or even on weekends.
Thank you
PS. Have attached a pic for you.

Finger Painting Class for Adults


I purchased as Xmas gift for husband. He loved it! Mick (teacher) was very encouraging. Hubby is colour blind and doesn’t do much in the way of creative art. He found it relaxing and lots of fun, using the paints and his hands as the tools. Highly recommend


Simone Ancilleri  •  Jan 2021

Finger Painting Class for Adults


The class was a lot of fun. The venue, teacher and materials provided were all excellent. Looking forward to doing another of Mick's workshops in the future.

Finger Painting Class for Adults


A fun and interactive learning experience, and I even managed to produce art in the process.

Wine Tasting Club


Thank you to Emma and Freddie for sharing your knowledge and passion for wine. Wine Club is a fun and relaxed place where you can appreciate and taste new wines while learning about the history and process for wine making and the industry. I am looking forward to the next one!


Denisse Yvanovich  •  Dec 2020

Food and Drink Tasting experience


This was fantastic, you introduced us to some local businesses that create their own product, which you provide a mechanism for them to sell through Pop.
This workshop not only introduces the local product but the people behind the product.

The Underground Gin Experience


My partner and I enjoyed this experience very much. We both know a lot more about gins, the process of making them. Nibbles were amazing too


Louise Yabsley  •  Dec 2020

Textiles class


This workshop was so much fun! Clare is very patient teacher, making each step easy for even the least crafty person! The Pop Canberra space is such a great space for these events. I'll definitely be signing up for future workshops :)

Creative Concepts: an Interactive Talk on Making


Wonderful class. Sarah is a magician! She sparked ideas, encouraged shy people, got us all dreaming. Will recommend for sure. Then afterwards my teen & I relished chance to browse in beaut shop downstairs, full of affordable tasty artistic things (Xmas trinkets to Enigma chocolates)


Mary-Lou Roden  •  Dec 2020

Finger Painting Class for Adults


I had a great time, used both sides of my brain and both hands, Mick was a great teacher and I was very happy with my final canvas painting.


Carmel McCrow  •  Dec 2020

Creative Concepts: an Interactive Talk on Making


Very personable and interesting to listen to, enthusiastic about her subject, involving the class so that the time sped by.
A beautifully put together cheese and fruit platter provided with a pleasant wine.
A most enjoyable and enlightening experience.

It was a super fun night! Mick ran the workshop in a way that was somehow both relaxed and structured. The food and wine were great too.

Make a Zine About Your Feelings Workshop


Really enjoyed the workshop, it was a beautiful space and ideal small class for exploring feelings. The teacher was very friendly and did a great job explaining the steps to making a zine, encouraging us to be honest and not perfect, and had a very clear structure for the class. I would have liked more variety of colours and types pens for the zine, but overall all the materials needed were provided. Also enjoyed a yummy morning tea and good conversation throughout the workshop. The pop Canberra staff were very friendly and helpful, the whole experience felt very personal and heartfelt. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in learning new skills and meeting some lovely people.

Make a Zine About Your Feelings Workshop


The workshop was really comfortable and fun, it was great to meet people with a similar interest. I'm grateful we covered the basics and were able to take supplies with us to make our own at home. I will definitely be doing a workshop at pop canberra again especially if Beth does another.


Dora Gillett  •  Nov 2020

Make a Zine About Your Feelings Workshop


Beth was a supportive, inspiring and entertaining instructor who guided us through making our zine and exploring our feelings with so much gentleness and wisdom!


Kel Watt  •  Nov 2020

Textiles class


Really nice vibe. Lovely presentation. Suited the crafty feel perfectly. Clare somehow taught me despite my completely inability to do anything arty.


Nicole O'Dowd  •  Nov 2020

Make a Zine About Your Feelings Workshop


Great atmosphere, pacing, and energy. So friendly and welcoming. Beth really made a safe space to explore our emotions and be ourselves. I would do this workshop again and any other workshop Beth runs!

Textiles class


Fabulous workshop. The teacher had a lovely way of explaining things and had a charming way of providing targeted help to students who struggled (ie. me).


Alison Cantwell  •  Nov 2020

Textiles class


I loved this, combined love of cross stitch and Christmas. Supplies included in cost and was able to take supplies home if didn't finish in time period. Teacher had easy to follow instructions. Would attend again absolutely.

AMAZING! Great space, intimate so everyone could be helped and guided. Modern and fun designs. This class was not a nana cross stitch class. Leah was great. Clear with her instructions and attentive to those who needed help. Will absolutley be back to another class!

Ceramic Plate Workshop


It was such a great way to spend the afternoon. The atmosphere was relaxed but the class was immediately hands. I cant wait to see what other classes are on offer.


Rachelle Maljkovic  •  Nov 2020

Ceramic Plate Workshop


Jo was lovely, explaining as we went and helped us when we ran into trouble. All utensils were provided and loved the bickie that was provided! The room was set up well and made for a relaxing Saturday afternoon being creative.

Embroidered Wall Hanging Workshop


A great course, in a great location with a great teacher. It was lovely to stop and do something creative and end up with a wonderful wall hanging that I will get to enjoy on a daily basis.

Thoroughly enjoyable workshop!
Delightful quietly spoken teacher providing a relaxed atmosphere with all the materials necessary - including an amazing workbook to take home.
Comfortable venue in a great location.

Embroidered Wall Hanging Workshop


This was a great class for beginner embroiderers! All the material was supplied to make a complete wall hanging (and the hoop and needles can be used again in future) and the fabric choices were lovely. Claire was a patient and thorough teacher. I had a great time and look forward to doing more classes in future!


Jessamy Sams  •  Oct 2020

Finger Painting Class for Adults


Excellent venue, expert teaching, A+ snacks. Well structured and well paced little lessons made it easy to follow, but there was still plenty of room for creativity!


Emily Mackay  •  Oct 2020

Finger Painting Class for Adults


Had such a fun time and Mick had a great approach to helping us not take ourselves too seriously. Mused much on the colour purple


Fran 'Sofrank'  •  Oct 2020

Finger Painting Class for Adults


Finger painting with Mick Ashley was a lot of fun - Mick challenged us to play with colour (or lack of), use both sides of our brain and taught techniques to improve our finished pieces.

Leave your painting inhibitions at the door; Mick will encourage you to create.

Statement Jewellery Workshop


The earring workshop was so much fun!

A lovely way to spend a Saturday, and we walked away with beautiful earrings that now have a story.
