Is soap usually on your grandma’s Christmas list? Organic soap can make a useful gift, but if you want to treat your grandma to something really special, why not learn how to make soap together at one of our Australian craft classes? It’s one of the most popular craft ideas for adults! 

Soap might be one of the world’s most common washing products, but the processes used to manufacture our favourite store-bought varieties aren’t always clean. By learning how to make your own soap, you can create custom bars that are as gentle on the planet as they are on your skin. This makes them perfect for all ages and skin types, whether your grandma is looking for a new daily soap or something to nourish her skin during the summer months. 

From fizzing bath bombs to the best natural body wash, our DIY soap making courses are sure to make popular Christmas gifts for grandma this festive season.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been sewing for years or have never picked up a needle, these beginner-friendly workshops will give you the chance to experiment, have fun and find your personal style. 

Led by professional dressmakers and artists, our classes cover everything from costume making to cross stitch and tote bags to haute couture. By the end of your class, you and your grandma will both have a beautiful handmade item that will always remind you of your day. But that’s not all. You may also have discovered a shared passion that can bring you closer in years to come, whether you add embroidery kits to your weekly catch ups or discuss different sewing techniques over a cuppa. 

At our classes, you’ll receive all the tools and materials you need to unlock a new skill or brush up on old ones. Sew, what are you waiting for? Our Christmas gifts for Grandma or mum are the ideal way to celebrate the festive season with family this year!
