Adrian Drayton Jun 2024

Loved the course and Sarah is an excellent teacher. The eight weeks went so quickly! All the skills I learned I will try and do it on my own, but really appreciate the set up at Sydney Community College. The class size was just right and it’s left me wondering what to do with myself on Tuesday evenings! Loved it!

Angelle Novella May 2024

The workshop was great. Our teacher was incredibly informative, guiding us through a world of color, texture, and endless creativity. Enjoyed experimenting with swirls and colour. This was a gift I gave to my mum and sister who also joined me and we all loved experiencing it together. Great bonding time. Our hearts are full, and our homes will now shine with stunning resin art. Grateful for this experience!

Maria Saarloos May 2024

Great class. Excited to make more cupcakes creations. Highly recommended great for beginners I'd never done anything with decorative arts before.

Wendy Austin May 2024

An Interesting gardening course which was made fun and enjoyable with a very knowledgeable teacher.

Myrnelle Jover May 2024

Loved this class! We learnt about the history of copperplate calligraphy, writing pressure and ink control, how to practice with a pencil, how to use an oblique pen, and had plenty of time to practice with letter and word construction. We also got to play around with other inks and colours!

Everything we needed was available - ink, nib, pen, practice paper, guides. Wonderful class.

a really good teacher, venue 10/10 materials were great learnt diff techniques, although could have modelled more good value needed more demo and modelling

Anna Babatzanis Apr 2024

Teacher was nice and gave us a little practice of different strokes. I would have liked a bit more information on the best way to use the different palette knives and what various strokes could be used for. I also think there’s a big gap between practising some new strokes and being expected to produce a landscape. This is quite common in art classes unfortunately.
The venue was good. The materials were ok but very hard to get some of the colours out of the bottles. I learnt I could buy a large place mat to use as a palette. I was able to practise different strokes. I like that all materials were provided. It wasn’t the full 3 hours though. I think the class was a little too expensive for what was done.
On a general note, a couple of teachers I’ve had spend some time on the phone or leaving students alone while doing their own thing. I’m an ex-teacher and this is not good practice. Teachers should walk around the class being there for questions and encouraging students. I know I don’t like to interrupt when someone is on the phone or computer.

Jason Briscoe Apr 2024

It was exactly what I needed. I have done a little Botanical Art by reading books and watching a few U-Tube videos, but Shipi provided just the rights mixture of basics to fill the gaps with exercises that were ambitious enough to be challenging. She was very clear and easy to follow and I found myself repeating her instructions to myself when I woke up the next morning. I will definitely be looking out for a longer course by Shipi.

Tony McCabe Mar 2024

It is quickly obvious that Dan knows what he is talking about, has extensive experience, and likes teaching. A lot of effort has been put into developing this curse and there is extensive relatable reference material.
I finished the last lesson tonight, and I’m still high from my “ah ha” moment, when I started to mix music on the equipment.
It seems impossibly technical at the beginning, but hang on and it will all make sense in the end and you too will be mulling over DJ names.

Helita Agranat Mar 2024

Teacher was very experienced. Gave lots of examples of what can be achieved. She was very accomplished.
Venue was excellent. Materials provided were appropriate to the course.
Class was good value. The class was small so plenty of attention was given. Achieved objective of learning to crochet. Very satisfied with outcome. Enjoyed the whole process. Highly recommended.

Amber, our teacher was excellent. Learnt a lot. Class was fun with a great group of people.

Aileen Gardner Jan 2024

Teacher was very knowledgeable, and happy to help with my project.
Materials like flux and solder were available at the class even though when asked, the college said I had to bring my own.

Mel Corthine Nov 2023

I can’t overstate how much I LOVED this course. Payal is the most kind, creative & constructive teacher and I am confident that I have learned how to crochet! I am an absolute beginner but Payal has set me up with enough knowledge & skills to continue with my new hobby which I really love. The course was the best gift I could have given myself.

Claudia Barrie Nov 2023

Sarah is lovely. Kind and thoughtful and explains things really well. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

To start with the teacher did not introduce herself. Though the teacher was fantastic at botanical illustrations, I found that she did not provide any feedback on my work or anyone else's work. I had to ask her where I had gone wrong and how to improve my work. Even then, it was extremely brief. She did not show me how to do it. I had read the great reviews about the teacher - how she spent time with each student and helped them individually and that the whole experience was very good. Unfortynately that was not the case for me. Thogh the exercises were good, again there was no feed back.

Xiaorui Cao Oct 2023

Wonderful experience also teacher is very helpful and supportive. Friendly environment as well. Highly recommend!

We expected a little more guided and controlled learning, like how to use specific tools and make specific marks with them. We were just left to make art by ourselves after a warm up and felt a bit lost.

Purchased this class for my mum and I and we absolutely loved it! Holly was super informative and made the class really enjoyable. We learnt the basics of mixing concrete and a few different design techniques. Small class size which meant there was time to ask questions and get help when required.

Debbie Core Jul 2023

Amber was easygoing and approachable. She was very hands-on and gave attendees individual attention and guidance on things like piping. I now feel more confident about decorating my own cupcakes for my son’s parties. Highly recommended.

Loved the class, Jacqueline was very attentive to everyone and covered any questions we had. We learnt how to give a full body massage using a variety of strokes. We were also provided with notes so that we could practice at home. Highly recommended if you are looking to learn some basic massage skills.

Gia Nicolaou May 2023

For my milestone birthday I was gifted funds which went towards this cupcake decorating class. It was one of my desires to learn how to create lovely looking cupcakes!

Thanks Amber, I learnt alot and enjoyed the fact that we could take our cupcakes home. Thank you also for your kindness and patience.

This was a lot of fun and it was great that we had the option to choose different shapes for our artwork piece and that they were large in size so our take home art was substantial. Had a great time and loved the art we produced.

Beatrice Ludowici Apr 2023

Teacher was engaged and enthusiastic. Quality of materials was good. Lesson was well organised, if perhaps a bit slow. Generous space and good desks. Lacked ambiance. Desk lights for drawing, music and climate control would have made it a better experience.

Beck Colechin Mar 2023

Such a great day! I’m a beginner and it was the perfect pace. The teacher was really talented, knowledgeable and willing to help all students of all abilities. I’ll definitely look at doing a further watercolour course with this teacher.

Sharon Baker is an absolutely amazing teacher. If you’re going to learn the art of calligraphy, learn from the best in the industry. Friendly, generous with her knowledge and time with personalised guidance throughout the whole session. Loved the experience and would highly recommend Sharon.

Grace Delaney Mar 2023

Enjoyed the course. Our teacher was lovely. Nice relaxed pace. Plenty of parking spots. Learned new techniques.

Our teacher was very practical and patient and we all produced masterpieces!
I would like to do another type of cake decorating course with Amber

Justin Mar 2023

* great communication from instructor
* some extra tastings outside of the provided recipes
* would have been nice to get to cook our own too - we were asked to bring 2-3 containers each, but there was really only one cheese to take home shared across the class, so only had around 1/2 a container's worth of cheese to take home

Justin Ting Mar 2023

This is more an information session than a hands-on ‘make your own cheese’ class - which the description I found a little misleading. The description mentions ‘you will also get a chance to make your own cheese’ made me think that it’s a cooking class where we each are making one, but actually because of Covid, the instructor is just demonstrating it and the rest of us sit and listen. (Also it said bring containers but since there is only 1 cheese that is made for the entire class to try - there isn’t much to take home)

The location of the classroom was also a little hard to find - in the email we were only told the building’s address but not the actual classroom we are supposed to go, so had to look around for the right room.

The teacher was very informative, knowledgeable and fun.

My Little Panda is quite knowledgeable & a lot of fun to do a course with. When 'unforeseen creative outcomes' occur (when things don't go quite right in the kitchen) she finds a solution to everything. The recipes are accurate & everything is explained 'step by step'. It's a good class if you're vegan but don't really like &/or want to give other options to 'raw' food treats.

Meri Marel Mar 2023

The teacher Ayse was delightful and inspiring. Terrific recipes I will definitely be attempting, hoping for a delicious outcome.

Jessica Gombault Mar 2023

Loved the experience, and interaction with our teacher/chef!
The vegan cheeses were delicious and I learned a lot during the course, it would be even better if we could be a bit more involved in the cooking, get our hands in the kitchen instead of just tasting but regardless it was a lovely evening with a small group of people, very easy going!

Mariangela Alvarez Nov 2022

Teacher is excellent. She is clear, friendly , easy to understand and give lot of practical examples. Location very convenient for public transport, nice cafe shop around the corner, booklet very handy.

Sally Holmes Nov 2022

Payal is a wonderful teacher who ensures that each stitch is mastered before moving on. This means you understand what you are doing and learn the ‘theory’ rather than just following what someone else is doing. The more you practice in between each week the more you will gain from the course too. The venue was OK, but I feel the light could be better in the room we were assigned, particularly for stitching work like crochet that depends on detail. A nice small group of 6 which gave plenty of time to ask Payal questions individually. Would love to come back for a more intermediate course in the future.

First class experience. Avril is not only competent and passionate about her craft she’s an excellent facilitator of a class such as this. We completed five projects and learned several fundamental bookbinding skills. Two full days packed with learning and all materials supplied represented terrific value for money. It’s inspired me to go further with this craft. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed this class. I was hospitalised before the final session and the teacher sent me a copy of the class to watch which I really appreciated. I learnt a lot about drawing and why my portraits always looked wrong before. I understood shapes and lines better. I think I was the least experienced and skilled drawer in the class but I got a lot from it. The teacher could extend and give more basic options depending on the participants skill. Good drawing tools are essential for this class - order the kit recommended.

The class filled out the basics I'd need to make an 'add style' video. But I did not need a 8GB flash drive as it was all done on a powerpoint presentation. I would have liked to have had some sort of practice training on my phone? Instead of just (the teachers powerpoint) as they used professional equipment in their add making anyway!

Not great, teacher wasn’t very vocal almost timid kind of quiet and scared
No structure to the class no outline of the class of what to expect
No notes provided, had a note book as suggested but nothing explained very well.
Bought items to use but didn’t use anything didn’t make anything in the class as nothing was explained very well
5 in the class and only 2 ppl turned up the following week.

Really need to look at how the class is worth $250 and nothing learnt.

I’m sorry I expected to walk away with crystals wire wrapped and know how to do it at home and I don’t and have to probably use YouTube or another class.

Teacher was very good and lots of helpful information, demonstrations were fun. Very enjoyable and informative, I’m gifting a class to a friend. I’m much more confident about making my own now. We had samples of the cheeses and the butter that were made. Highly recommended for all stages of cooking skills

Alana Colombo Jun 2022

I really loved our teacher for the class. She was very knowledgable and friendly.
I only wish we were able to make the cheese ourselves too. I was under the impression we would be making at least one cheese.

Paper Craft and Ink class review by Emma Morris

Max Walkerden May 2022

My son did not get to attend this class as he became very ill with suspected glandular fever and tonsillitis. I attempted to make contact with the organizer/teacher the night before when he first presented with sudden onset symptoms without success as the email was not manned.

I have since been informed that he is not able to reschedule his class so I have wasted almost $250 through no fault of mine. While I understand that the place could not be filled at short notice, I am disappointed that there is no credit available for a future course.

I have a medical certificate to show that his illness is genuine and my son is unable to attend school for this whole week. Not attending the class on Saturday was the responsible thing to do for the safety of all participants.

I hope that this policy can be reviewed, particularly given the current health crisis.

Elizabeth Newton May 2022

Great class, Ellie was so supportive, beginning to see the world slightly differently now.
Can't wait until the next class.

Sadly workshop wasn't what we were expecting. Was very slow moving, we were provided with wrong finish time, and even though workshop was extended we still didn't do much of the interesting work promoted in the workshop outline. Teacher was lovely, but class didn't have much structure.

I really enjoyed the Botanicals water colour painting class today. Shippi was a lovely teacher, very encouraging, explaining all the techniques clearly, and she took time to help us all individually.
Paints, brushes and paper were all provided. It was a relaxed, friendly environment, and it was nice to chat with other people while we painted. It was my first time learning to paint and I definitely have learnt some new skills today.
Location was easy to find, plenty of street parking on a Saturday.
Overall an enjoyable experience, I look forward to attending further water colour classes.

Aletheia Rosario Mar 2022

My friend and I enjoyed it! There were bits of setback at the start because the room wasn't prepared fully and the room was changed last minute, but when we were going through the material and practising our strokes, the lecture flowed. The feedback was very immediate. I was able to adjust my technique immediately. Frankly speaking, I have been handlettering for a long time already, but it was a hobby that I trained myself in with practise. Going through the drills produced immediate results and improved how I do my calligraphy. My friend was a complete beginner and she said that the lesson was a good starter into handlettering.

Annette and Louise are both fantastic teachers who know their stuff and make it a fun learning environment. Class size was perfect, great venue and easy parking. We were taken through each stage with lots of support and everyone was able to get the project completed in the allotted time - with an early mark if you don't chat too much haha. Really encouraging to know that you don't need to invest in a workshop of upholstery tools to complete projects. The teachers will answer any and all questions on all of those chairs at home you've been wanting to recover but didn't know how. Definitely give this one a go!

Also, the lift has been out of order for all of the 4 weeks I’ve been attending the school!

Martha Maroon Feb 2022

My teacher Tian was awesome!
We got off a little late because some other people came in late and we had to readjust the tables to fit them in and the others wanted the windows open and air conditioning on so then she had to accommodate them so we did start the class about 15 minutes late.
The lesson it self was very good, but it wasn’t the right class for me. I was looking for a bouncing brush stoke technique which Tian was very kind and stayed back and showed me her method of brush stoke. She advised the knowledge from the lesson will help me achieve this by practicing. I probably should have asked for more information about the lesson before I committed to it. I, personally didn’t find the class gained me any benefit in my style of handwriting for the amount of money the lesson cost.

This was one of the best Zoom classes I’ve attended! The only thing I wish had been different is that we should have been provided with the proper masks to wear while working with resin. We all made do with masks we had at home, but it would have been better if we’d had the proper ones (even if the class had to be a few $ more expensive, or maybe it could be an optional add-on).
I loved the range and amount of pigments that were included in our kits!
Monica was fantastic, she knew so much and I’m so excited to see my pieces when they’re finished curing

Richard is a seasoned filmmaker, having worked on various known brands his knowledge in the industry is amazing.

This was an extensive workshop spread across 4 Saturdays (3.5 hours) and I am really glad I opted for this. We covered the behind the scenes (pre-production) of making a short film where we got to do some hands on exercises on Screenwriting, Storyboarding, Shot Planning and Location scouting.

The venue, Sydney Community College was really nice with all the modern equipments and nice classrooms for this indoor workshops. We are also going to use the venue to shoot the short film in February 2022.

I have already the booked the 2nd part of this Workshop which is for Shooting the Short Film (February 2022) where we will get to learn about Direction, Cinematography, Editing and Post Production side of things about making a short film as well as other necessary documentation part in Filmmaking industry.

Recommended for anyone interested in knowing the process of making a film along with practical aspects of actually working on a student short film.

A++ in my book.

Initially I was nervous to try this class as it's such a foreign type of craft for me but the teacher was beyond patient, guided us beautifully and I learnt so much about bookbinding (including some of each types of history and origins). The materials in the box were such high quality and the final products are beautiful, mistakes and all (in my opinion worth the higher price).

I'm also impressed with the fact that you leave the class with 3 books that are made to keep or gift.

My only feedback would be that at some times it was a little fast, but if you speak up the teacher gave time or repeated instructions to accomodate this.

I’ve done the first class so far. I did this class on an iPad, and did not know we had to print off the reference materials for the class. It would help to give people notice they need two screens (one for the teachers demonstration camera and the other for the notes) or to have the materials printed off. Since the notes where essential, they could have been posted with the kits for those (like me) who don’t own a printer. Other than that, it was good.

Sally is a beautiful person and teacher, it was a lovely friendly environment, I enjoyed my afternoon. Teaching and communication has taken on a new approach with the advent of utube teaching, which is usually demonstrating, direct, and, loaded with information bites tied down to principles. This type of approach is a beautiful way to escalate learning
that involves every one regardless of medium.

This was a great class, friendly and talented teacher, good atmosphere, small, friendly group. I was surprised to find that I actually did learn the different braids and feel confident to use and develop my skills! There was time to practice and get advice and ask for help, really enjoyed myself:) Thank you.

Jacqueline, the teacher, is fantastic. The material provided was great: 3 canvas, acrylic colors and plenty of palette knifes to chose and experience with them.
A good starting point for Palette knife painting

Our teacher Elizabeth was very welcoming, relaxed and encouraging. Her workshop was well structured, well paced and presented. Over the day Elizabeth gave us good information, excellent examples of relevant writing, facilitated discussion and guided us through brainstorming topics for our own writing, choosing our topic and beginning and finally writing a short piece. It was very engaging and enjoyable and Elizabeth made it very interactive and so much easier to write than I ever expected. I highly recommend the workshop.

Great course. Anthony created a setting that was easy for beginners to understand and even better, comfortable for us to ask questions I would be embarrassed to ask otherwise.
