Our story began in 2018 in a small Redfern studio. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and we haven't looked back. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life.

In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy.

Today, our classes run from our own venue in Redfern. We run lots of different creative classes from Sewing to Jewellery, painting and lots more, we love following the trends and developing new classes for our customers to enjoy.

This class was fantastic! Danni was very knowledgeable, helpful and fun. I highly recommend this class.

Eriko Kinoshita Apr 2024


It was a great tester session for Polymer clay earring making. I would like to see more options for cutter shapes and more varieties for sample designs. Design options was a bit too basic for me who likes different styles. I consider myself lucky as it was a private session due to cancellation by others. Thank you for the oppoutunity!

Leonie Sii Apr 2024


What a great class! I went with a friend, and we had never done textured painting before. The teacher was great and taught us about all the materials being used, and provided tips on how to use the spatula to create the perfect petal. We had creative freedom to paint whatever we wanted :)

I learnt how to make shorts. My teacher was incredibly patient and helpful. We went at our own pace (I took long and required a lot of help lol) but I successfully made them!

Learned a lot during this class, from setting up the sewing machine to actual sewing. Sophie has been really accommodating and been going through each one of us to check we're doing well. Really loved the cushion cover we made! Will definitely go to their other sewing classes in the future!

Michelle Avery Mar 2024


I came into this class not knowing very much about how to use a sewing machine, and by the end of the class, I can honestly say that I felt confident in using a machine and found making a pillow extremely easy. I loved the class and our teacher was so patient and helpful. I'm looking forward to doing another class and bringing a project to work on.

Teacher's response

Thank you for the kind words Michelle. We are so glad to have helped your kickstart your sewing journey! our teachers love helping participants gain confidence and knowledge.
Hopeful to see you soon and happy sewing!

Me and my daughter had an awesome experience with the candle making class. The teachers were super fun, helpful and friendly! We learned so much and will do more classes in the future.

Phaedra Ravier Feb 2024


Had an amazing time! It was a Christmas gift from my son, who also participated in the class, which made it doubly special. Our teacher was amazing, so patient and she told us lots of interesting facts.
We made pillow cases and found material we really liked which went so well on my couch later on!

Teacher's response

Thank you for your kind words Phaedra! We're thrilled to hear that you had an amazing time in the class, and it's so special that it was a Christmas gift from your son. Our teachers strive to make the class informative and enjoyable, Thanks for being a part of the class, and we hope to see you and your son again soon!

Georgina Dick Feb 2024


Great class, good to learn the basics!
Only down part you have to pay extra for a pillow insert, the amount you pay for the class it should be included.

Teacher's response

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the class. Regarding the pillow insert, we appreciate your feedback and understand your perspective. Our pricing structure is designed to provide flexibility and options for all customers, we have found over the years that many don't want an insert. While the class fee covers the tuition, fabric and machine hire, certain optional add-ons such as cushion inserts are available for purchase separately to accommodate varying needs and preferences. We apologise if this was not made clear beforehand and will take your feedback into consideration for future classes.

I did the pot planting for fun. The class was OK, although I would appreciate if the teacher can spend some time tutoring each individual the best way to do a petal on a pot or on a canvas

Textured Paint and Sip Class - Plant Pot Edition review by Yi Jin - Sydney

Teacher's response

Thank you for your feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the painting class. In this class, the teacher rotates between students, offering guidance and assistance with the technique. We encourage students to ask for help whenever needed, as our goal is to ensure everyone feels supported and learns at their own pace. Your input is valuable, and we'll strive to ensure clearer communication on how to request individual assistance in future classes.

Ayesha Ali Feb 2024


I wanted to learn about textured art and I think this was the best way to get started, they gave us really good tips, very nice fun class for beginners.

A great class, wonderful teacher and a fun way to spend an afternoon thank you!

Teacher's response

Hi Isilay, it was great seeing you again! Thank you for your review, we're so happy to hear you enjoyed the afternoon. Hope to see you again in the future :)

Heather McDonald-Haynes Feb 2024


This was a great introduction to sewing and good sewing technique. I came in with some idea of how to use a sewing machine but still learnt a lot!

Kelly Tena Feb 2024


We booked for the Polymer taster class for a friend's hens. The whole party talked about how enjoyable the experience was and were so pleased with the pieces they took home!
I also just loved how easy it was to book. In the lead up to the event, they sent me all the information I needed to know about what to expect on the day, arrival times, things they'd have ready for us (e.g. decorations, a music system etc).
The whole process- literally from beginning to the end - with SydneyCreative has just been so pleasant, easy and lovely. I'm definitely keeping an eye out for other classes for myself haha. Thank you Dani and Sophie!

Sachiko Ishii Jan 2024


The lesson was very fun and I learned a lot from Sophie who was an amazing teacher. Great for beginners, would recommend for anyone who wants to learn to sew.

Mikaela Kingsted Jan 2024

Wonderful teacher, convenient location, everything was made so easy as all the materials, machine etc was provided, incredibly well priced and just got so much out of the 2.5 hour experience. :) Sophie should be proud of the small business she is running!

Megan Yap Jan 2024


It was great fun! The teacher Sophie was lovely, the venue was cute and comfy, and there was a small group of us which made for a lovely learning experience.

This class was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know how to use a sewing machine and has been too afraid to do so.
Sophie broke it down and made it so easy to understand and learn - all of that in 3 hours! I thought it would take weeks to learn.
We also went away with a beautiful cushion cover which we cut and sewed ourselves! Big sense of achievement. Thanks a lot, Sophie!
I'll definitely be back for more :)
Highly, highly recommend this course

Takwa Tissaoui Jan 2024


I am not necessarily experienced or talented with art in general but this class was so much fun and quite easy! I still have the artwork on display in my home many months later :) Sydney creative is just a great place to do workshops at and I highly recommend this one!

Takwa Tissaoui Jan 2024


The class was very enjoyable and informative. Went with a friend and we learnt so much, covering all the basics so that we can kickstart our sewing journey! Also felt great having our pillowcase at the end, applying everything we learnt in the 3 hours. So eager to go back for other classes!

Alisar Kanjrawi Dec 2023


Dani was such a great teacher. She was friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed the class.

Kemi Daji Dec 2023


Absolutely loved my recent sewing class! The instructor was a superstar - so skilled and friendly, making every step fun and easy to grasp. The class took place in the Sydney Creative studio in Surry Hills that was - a cozy space that just sparked creativity. We got great materials to work with, and I was impressed by the quality. The value? Unbeatable! I picked up some sewing techniques and finally got the hang of setting up and using a sewing machine.
If you're thinking about a sewing class, this is the one to go for.

Samantha Manson Dec 2023


The class was super fun, teachers were great and answered all of our questions ahead of time! The space was so lovely and very well air conditioned. We were able to bring our own food and drinks and drop off ahead. Perfect for a hens party and for Swifties!

Jewellery Making class review by Samantha Manson - Sydney

Adria Bott Dec 2023


The entire experience was enjoyable! The teacher was very informative and cordial, I felt comfortable asking questions. The materials we worked with were more than adequate, and the fabric was very cute. The venue was adorable and inviting; you want to spend more time there. I will do more sewing classes.

Maria E. Sanchez Alvarez Nov 2023


I am beyond grateful for the engaging lessons Sophie has taught me in class.
Her passion and experience were really inspiring.
The location, set up and technique are great.

Highly recommended

Great, Knowledgeable and patient teacher. Very welcoming. Loved the space. I definitely need practice but not ready to shell out for a machine yet. Thank you.

Tithi Narang Oct 2023


It was a good experience but I wish that the person who was teaching us, actually reviewed how we were progressing and how we can make it better.
The bowl which I made I think wasn't kept in the oven for too long and as a result its still wobbly and isnt kilnd properly. I am a bit bummed about it coz it was supposed to be a take out gift from the class and now I can't use it.
For the price we paid for the class, I think it should have been reviewed after it was taken out from the oven.
Apart from that, it was a fun experience and she articulated the steps pretty well.

Teacher's response

Hi Tithi,

We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on our Polymer Clay Taster & Sip class. We're truly sorry to hear about the disappointment you experienced with your bowl. We aim to provide an excellent experience for all our participants, and it seems we fell short of that for you.

The feedback you provided is somewhat surprising to us, given that your class was essentially a private session with no other participants other than your friend. Our teacher was able to provide you with her full attention and assistance, sitting with you throughout the session.

We'd like to note that Polymer clay possesses different properties compared to traditional clays like ceramics or pottery. Polymer Clay still remains somewhat flexible after baking. We bake the Polymer Clay for the maximum duration possible, baking them any longer would lead to burning the clay. We're so sorry if this was not communicating during your session.

Your feedback is valuable to us to improve future sessions and we'd like to extend our apologies once more for not meeting your expectations during your class.

Dani was spectacular! She was very a great teacher and help make my sister's hens party so much fun! Very accomodating and helpful. We all enjoyed the textured paint and sip experience!

Karly Pisano Oct 2023


We had an absolute blast at our Polymer Clay jewellery making workshop. We were celebrating our lovely bride-to-be and our host Sophie made everyone feel super welcome, was a great teacher and host and everyone had such a great time making a pair of earrings or a bowl. The booking experience was super smooth and easy and I would highly recommend a class at Sydney Creative.

Michele Wintzloff Oct 2023


Did the sewing beginner cushion cover class. Sophie was amazing. Patient and thorough. Looking at doing more classes.

Abi Hughes Oct 2023


Sophie was a good teacher and encouraged us to have fun and be creative (anything goes). There were plenty of materials, and we could ask for more of whatever we needed. The Sydney Creative venue is easy to access, and we had dinner beforehand at a nearby restaurant. It was a friendly atmosphere, and I learnt that textured painting is harder than it looks. Grab some friends and give it a go.

The location was convenient and easy to access. The classroom was also very neat and had a lovely pink wall which was great for pictures.

It was a great and lovely session. I enjoyed a lot! Sophia taught us different skills and which colour to mix for the perfect colour. She also prepared all the tools that we need which was impressive. Highly recommend to go to her classes!

Nice small class. Great teacher. Left handed ppl catered for.
Got a lovely pillow out of it.

Katherine Sep 2023


Great sterling silver earring class - we did this as a hens party activity and everyone enjoyed it so much! The teachers were great, very attentive and helped everyone. The space is great for hens parties as you can bring your own drinks & nibbles. Would recommend Sydney Creative for your next event!

Sophie was a great teacher and really made it so simple for beginners getting into sewing. She explained every step thoroughly from pattern to overlocking, and also made sure you knew the machine really well too.
Facilities and equipment were top-notch. You could tell everything was really well looked after. I really enjoyed the class and will be looking into doing the pants/shorts class next to continue my skills. Thanks again, Sophie!

Great introduction to using a sewing machine but also following a simple pattern to create the cushion cover. Love that the class also provides all the materials and sewing machine for you, makes it easier especially when you’re just getting started with sewing as you don’t really know what to get.

This class was a great introduction to polymer clay. Sophie was a great teacher and we left with our own keyrings and earrings respectively! Recommended!

Kimberley Aug 2023


Sydney Creative is such a convenient location! Only a short walk from Redfern station.
Dani was so lovely and accomodating for the class. She had bowls and glasses ready for all the snacks and drinks we brought. She even put the snacks in the bowls for us!
Sydney Creative has an iPad for music so you don't have to worry about that either
For the class itself - her instructions were easy to follow and she was very engaging!
While we waited for the tray to set we had the opportunity to play games.
Overall it was a fun class and I would definitely recommend it!

I attended the 3hr class with a friend and we both enjoyed ourselves!
Dani, our teacher, was friendly and very patient with our questions and helping us with techniques.
It was the sort of workshop where although learning something, at the same time we were able to chat and relax. Also the pizzas were
Of course, the earrings turned out pretty cool too!

Lovely space with great classes! I took the sewing for beginner’s class with Sophie and had great fun making the cushion cover. We got to pick our fabric and marked what was needed based on the pattern (which we could take home). Sophie was patient and encouraging, and had great tips to make sure we could understand the sewing machine and know how to take care of it. I look forward to be back for more classes!

A welcoming environment with a great setup. Danni was a dream and is an asset to the team at Sydney Creative - she was not only informative and able to provide us with the descriptions we needed at the various levels we were all at, but she was wonderfully conversational, which created a lovely atmosphere while we were hard at work trying to get our pieces together.

Taylah Hockey Jul 2023


I absolutely loved this class. The atmosphere was lovely and the teacher was welcoming especially since I haven’t done art since high school. The teacher gave great ideas on the colour palette I was after and helped me get the right technique for the textured paint.

Ann Sluga Jul 2023

I enjoyed the class. I do think with the medium used, which was not a nice gritty paste more like marshmallow, became too soft once acrylic paint was added making it harder to get a nice form. I wish I’d realized why I got nice shapes with the plain medium and couldn’t get the same once colour was added. Just my thought on the medium used. The class was fun. The teacher Dani was lovely.

A big thank you to Danni for teaching us textured painting yesterday. We were able to create our own designs and used quality products in a cute, warm and comfy studio. The 2 hours flew by so quickly. I took a bit of time to pick out the colours and composition but Danni was so patient, gave me wonderful suggestions and tips to create our best work.

Great activity for a hens night! Teacher was patient and you were able to get one on one tips. Highly recommend

Audrey Jun 2023


Our teacher was welcoming, knowledgeable, helpful, patient and respectful.
The venue was well located, had good lighting, was spacious enough for our group and we had all the materials needed.
The experience is good value for money. At the end of the class all of us in the group we were able to learn, create and finish our unique pieces of art! I have mine on a shelf in my study room and each time I look at it I am reminded of this beautiful time spent there.
I liked everything about my experience; I had so much fun while learning, creating, eating and sipping wine.
I am very grateful to have had this opportunity and I recommend the class.

This was such a great experience! Danii (spelling?) was incredibly patient and helpful. It was the perfect amount of time - went quickly but didn’t feel too rushed. Plenty of room to do your own thing if you have an artistic flair, or plenty of examples and guidance if you’re less sure. Overall, really loved it and would definitely recommend!

Our instructor was great. She was very bubbly and happy to explain techniques a few times for people to get a grasp of it.
All the materials provided were great.
The location was a close distance from the station but not very good for driving. I would prefer location were driving/parking is possible. Driving would have taken us 40 minutes to get home while with public transport took us 2 hours and it was quite difficult considering that we were carrying our artworks with us.

The teacher was wonderful. Very patient, helpful, skillful and fun.
The Space was creative, good music was playing and there was a fun, relaxed vibe.
Loved learning how to do textured painting. Was very happy with the artwork I was able to take home, and I look forward to doing another workshop soon. Great value for money
Highly recommend this workshop!

Sophie was a great teacher and explained everything really clearly. The group was really fun, and it was great learning a new skill. The materials were all provided, and I walked away with the cutest earrings. Keen to do more and highly recommend!

- Venue was really bright, almost too bright
- Small intimate class, I feel as though the teacher of the class could’ve been a bit more lively but experience fun nevertheless
- Clay polymer making was fun, enjoyed it a lot

Shobhna Sen May 2023


Excellent teacher who explained with patience. I feel confident to start using my new sawing machine now.

Alicia Luan May 2023


Relaxed and fun experience making your own coloured chips and tray - it was really simple and enjoyable and gives you a really cute dish to take home and use.

Saoirse Patton May 2023


This class was amazing! Rachel was such a patient and clear instructor, and showed so much experience and skill. She took us through all the basics we needed to know and explained why, which made it easier to understand. The location was easy to get to and I loved the small class size. The quality of equipment provided was excellent and everything was easy to understand and use, and the fabric choices were gorgeous! I’m so pleased with how my cushion cover turned out and I’m so excited to keep sewing now that I feel SO much more confident! Would highly recommend this class!

Rosie McLister May 2023


It was super fun! I’m not sure it’s a “class” as such, they just set us up with the materials and showed us how to do the textured petals. But that was pretty nice and chilled. It was very relaxing and we loved our pieces in the end!

Josephine Abbott May 2023


Dani was so lovely and wonderful at explaining everything and helping out when I needed some pointers.

Michelle Vidler May 2023


Really good class for beginners! There was only 6 in our class which made it really easy to ask questions and make a cushion in the 3 hours we had.

Our instructor was very friendly and knowledgeable, but I think could improve slightly by explaining some of the basic terminology better (Like rather than saying "Put the bobbin here" tell the class what the bobbin is and what purpose it has.)

The location was also great. Really easy to access and super close to Redfern station.

It was set up well, and everything was done in a good amount of time.

Purchased the class as birthday gift. Enjoyed making own earrings. Safety concern for using burners and drills.

Teacher's response

Hi Karen,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your concerns about the safety of our silversmithing workshop. This class requires equipment to heat and drill metal, as well as a range of tools to attach the hooks to the earrings. While I know that using the equipment may seem daunting, I want to assure you that all health and safety regulations are adhered to. We had a one-on-one health and safety talk and specific instructions were given on using the torch and drill, the fire extinguisher and first aid kit are always close by.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions.

Warm regards,
Sydney Creative

The team are so very accommodating and we had a great mix of fun and learning and walked away with double canvas.
I’d recommend individual and groups to participate in whatever Sydney Creative have to offer.
Thanks Sophie & Team.

We were provided with all the required materials to make our own textured painting. It was definitely a good experience and would highly recommend if you haven’t done it before. Tea, coffee, water and snacks were provided. You can take your artwork home after the class ends or you can pick it up as it takes 7 days to dry.

The space was smallish but inviting and the owner has worked smarter not harder in making the space comfortable for students. The place was easy to find. Great value for money and I’m really happy with how my painting turned out.
If offered I would have bought supplies from the facilitators e.g a take home kit with beginner supplies so that I could continue practicing the skills I’d learnt.

Monique Gilbert Jan 2023


We booked a private group session & made polymer earrings for a hens night - honestly it was so fun my only disappointment is that we booked the shorter option! We had the option to make earrings, keyring or bowl, so many colours to choose from & even better that you can mix your own colours & marble them so your design is unique to you. Our host Sophie was really helpful in making the booking & responding to any questions leading up to the event, on the night Sophie was a delight, welcoming, friendly & patient, she explained everything & helped throughout the night & even had some personal touches to go above & beyond. I highly recommend this space & look forward to coming back to try other workshops here, next time I'll book the longer session because I really didn't want it to finish! Thank you so much Sophie & team.

A great class, lovely teacher, ample space and good instructions. Loved learning how to do the backgrounds too. I would definitely recommend, however I do wish the teacher had showed us some samples of what could be typically achieved in the time frame we had as a lot of the samples around were done over multiple classes, which she mentioned at the end and that was a bit disappointing as I don't think our class had a realistic understanding of what could be completed. That said it was great and I would do it again happily, it was a wonderful class.

Sophie was really nice and accommodating (thank you again for letting me eat and heat up my food!).
She was really good and teaching the class on how to cut the fabric, and always took the time to show us the steps (and even gave a pop quiz - which I think I passed) - she was also really patient when I struggled on how to use the sewing machine.
She made it feel so easy that I really wanted to make another cushion or start another project!
Materials that were provided were really pretty, and I love my cushion cover - I used it as soon as I got home.
Doing this class makes you feel really accomplished! Would go back again to make the shorts :)

Flavia Gentile Dec 2022


It was a great class, very fun and had such a good laugh with my girlfriends, we were throwing a hen's party. The space was extremely small and that would be my only negative point. Also, I got late because of my flight from Melbourne, and I got 30 minutes late, I would expect a bit of guidance which it wasn't provided so this was a bit disappointed, and me and my friend were very lost.

She helped me figure out how to arrange my pieces and I had a lot of them. I was worried about breaking the clay but all the tools available were enough for me fix problems myself.

It was nice to do something new on a rainy day. Overall it was OK. It didn’t blow my mind. We got very few instructions, some more guidance would be better, e.g. how to blend colors and how to make brush strokes for the background, or what difference does it make to put small or large amount of the paste on the palette knife, or show us real time examples of different techniques, how to hold the knife on the canvas…. Also the canvas was quite too small.

Textured Paint and Sip Class: Petals review by Eva Zemanova - Sydney

Teacher's response

We're sorry to hear the class didn't blow your mind, we always strive to offer the best class experience for all of our customers. As this session is an open-ended painting class, after our demonstrations, guidance and help is given to each individual as we walk around. We'd love to offer bigger canvases however the 12" x 16" size is the largest we're able to fit on the tables given everyone also needs a mixing board and choice of colours.

Thank you for sharing your feedback, we will take your points on board for future classes.

Instructions were clear. We were given the freedom to be expressive and creative and our choice of colours. There were plenty of samples to refer to. I love this class. The ambience was good and with good background music. Definitely a way to destress.

Sophie was very very helpful teaching us how to use a sewing machine but really made us comfortable and gave us confidence how to use the machine.

The teacher was great and it was a really good class for beginners! Gained great tips on how to setup/use a sewing machine and create my first little projects.

Had the best time at Sydney Creative making earrings, eating pizza and catching up with the girlies! Our teacher was so lovely and helpful and gave really great advice throughout the class. We all loved our earrings and are keen to return to Sydney Creative in future. Highly recommend this experience.

Sophie and her colleague was clear, friendly and excellent at providing a fun yet relaxing experience for me & my friends! We all walked out with four lovely earring designs! We would definitely come back!

Sophie is such a beautiful soul, felt super comfortable with her and she has all the great qualities a great teacher needs.
The venue is super cute and quite easy to find.
The materials provided were of beautiful quality, completely in love with the fabric I was able to choose.
Definitely good value for money, can’t wait to be able to go again.
So far in one lesson I’ve learnt how to draw and cut out the pattern provided and then how to set up an over locker and then of course overlocking my material. We got up to pinning the fabric ready for the next lesson.
I loved everything about the class, 3 hours wasn’t long enough, could have stayed all day.
Thanks so much for the great experience!

Sophie (the teacher) was very knowledgeable about over lockers. She was excellent with hands on advice. I would recommend this class to anyone with an over locker. The venue space was very good great for sewing and cutting out patterns. I had fun and learned a lot!

Studio was really nice and teachers were friendly. They had extra tea, coffee and snacks available too.

Would've been nicer if class time was a bit longer as the technique took some time to grasp and did not have enough time to finish painting.

Highly recommend the Polymer and Pizza class! Sophie was wonderful with communication before hand, organised and just a delight on the day. The studio in Redfern is super cute and was perfect for our group of School Mums for a social night out . Everyone is raving about how gorgeous the earrings are we made as well!

Really great workshop. I would recommend looking at some ideas of what you want to do before hand as you don’t have time in the workshop to think about what colours/patterns/techniques you would like to try.

Sophie was an excellent teacher. She took the time to talk us through each step and the 3 hours flew by.
Materials were provided and I walked home with a gorgeous cushion cover.
The space is also beautiful, tea/coffee/water provides.

The class was great! The materials were provided, steps and instructions were given very clearly. I appreciated the tips Sophie provided throughout the class. It was a lovely space to be present and to learn a new skill. I’ll definitely be signing up to more classes!
