Native Cocktail Making Class


Great classI really enjoyed it. Chris is a natural entertainer, friendly and knowledgeable. The venue is quirky and fun, and the class size (7) was perfect for engagement. We made four cocktails - all unusual and delicious. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it seemed to move so fast - I'm a 'girlie swot' by nature, so would have liked to take notes and dive into more discussion on the native ingredients, but the pace and set-up didn't seem conducive. I'd do it again though, and certainly recommend it to anyone!

Fun Chocolate Truffle Workshop


Really enjoyable class, very professionally run in a top quality facility. Joseph and Connie are lovely and super-experienced, so they make it look easy as they take you step-by-step through the molding process. It was a big class (26 people), which was fine and gave good opportunity to meet and chat with others. We were each given a mold and made a tray with 3 different fillings - all of which were delicious!

The only reason I haven't given this a 5-star is because I'd have liked to have seen the full process of chocolate-making, whereas this class focuses on molding of filled chocolates. There is another class that shows the full process (which I will sign up for!).

Pinot and Picasso Class - Balmain


Great venue - accessible, light, bright and well presented. Plentiful good quality materials. The teacher was lovely. My only suggestion would be for a little more instruction.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop


I've been wanting to learn kintsugi for years, and this class was the perfect intro. My teacher, Noriko-san, was passionate, patient, meticulous in her instruction and very encouraging. The venue was great, all materials were provided (along with tips about where to find my own supplies) and I left full of enthusiasm to continue the practice at home. Thank you, Noriko-san!
