Mosaic Course for Beginners



Unfortunately the class was interrupted by lockdown. The time we had was great! Everything was explained really clearly and there were ample supplies to select from. I can’t wait for the rest of the class to take place.

Silver Jewellery Making Workshop for Beginners



Sarah was fantastic, she was very relaxed and cheerful. We learned the basics which was good - now I want to keep learning! Sarah was very generous and we were able to make as many pieces that we could fit into the time we had. Everything was supplied. We had 4 in our class which was perfect, any more than that might have been difficult as we couldn’t all have Sarah’s attention at once! We made a couple of pieces each and they are amazing. I will treasure and wear them for years to come.

Sarah, I absolutely loved everything about the workshop. Loved learning a new skill. Nice small group - didn’t have to wait too long for help. Great venue- so rustic and an amazing shop and gallery. Will definitely look out for another one of your workshops! Thanks so much Caron x

Traditional Marbling Workshop: Turkish Ebru



What a marvelous way to spend a morning, making beautiful, traditional and contemporary Ebru (marbled papers). Our teacher was passionate and skilled in her Art form, and passed on that enthusiasm to the class. We learned several patterning methods, using the various hand-prepared colours and traditional awls and combs, and ended the session by marbling a fan, to add to our array of papers and gift  + more

Traditional Marbling Workshop: Turkish Ebru



I loved doing this workshop. Eda is a lovely teacher who simplified everything for us and also gave us the history of ‘Marbling’ or ‘Ebru’. It’s is lots of fun and you don’t need to be artistic to get great results with this medium.

Highly recommend. This class was run by Rhaine who was so helpful and friendly. Great value for money and so much fun I have done it twice already. Terrific venue, easy to find and park then spent the afternoon exploring Kyneton. Excited to collect our finished plates and coasters in a couple of weeks.

Great value and easy instructions that let you be creative rather than directing what you do. I had a lot of fun. I went by myself but would also make a fun group activity. Loved it!

A beautiful workshop space and plenty of opportunities to create something special. Great activity to do with a group of friends.


Simone Healy May 2021

Glass Light Catcher Workshop



Excellent course with a teacher that was very welcoming and helpful. It was a very well paced day. The catered lunch and coffee provided was fabulous. I am seriously thinking of doing it again. The only part that could be a little better is once ready to solder there was only one teacher to the whole class which just meant that we needed to wait around a bit - but that really wasn't a big deal.

Sarah is a lovely patient and friendly teacher, who clearly explained and demonstrated various techniques. I was able to make two pendants, which I love.

All great. Great contribution to community and art development in Victoria. Only thing I would say is I rang to get more info about the workshop and I was told it was a two day workshop only to find out on the day it was one day and I had booked accommodation I didn’t have to.

Jo was so accommodating and generous hosting this class for us with only a few days notice. Jo was a fantastic teacher, and made a very comfortable and fun environment to learn (we loved your wicked sense of humour!). They were very patient with us and stepped us through everything we needed to know to make something amazing. No one in our group of six had ever made Polymer Clay jewellery before but we all walked out with a number of beautiful, unique pieces that we will treasure and wear proudly.

The venue for the glass class was a bright, spacious and attractive workshop. The instructors, Rain and Ettore, were attentive, clear in their instructions, and gently helpful. They made suggestions, and kept an eagle eye out to make sure that tool use and glass handling was safe, but they didn't 'hover', and the kids could just get on with things in their own time. The class was good value for money and I wish I'd bought myself a ticket to make something too! By the way, the artist-made items in the showroom of The Old Auction House were universally  + more

This was a great class very well taught and with great tools and materials available. The workspace was large and warm and I’d love to do it again. LOVE my earrings and ring.

Relaxed environment with a relaxed teacher Sarah was great and helpful. A class where we could choose whatever we wanted to make absolutely recommend this class to all who may be interested.

Glassblowing and Mosaic class



It was my first time doing mosaics. Rhaine was a fantastic instructor, very attentive and helpful, whilst letting us have free reign with the materials we used for our designs. There was plenty of beautiful tiles to choose from, and Rhaine advised if our selection may not give the end result we wanted. I was really happy with what I learned in the class, and really love the piece I made. My friend and I purchased some tools and tiles to continue with mosaics at home. Highly recommend a class here.

Glassblowing and Mosaic class



Brilliant class with a brilliant teacher. Never done anything with mosaics before and think, for a first piece, I’ve created a masterpiece. Having never used a glass cutter or clipped a tile, think I’m confident to really get started on some ideas I’ve had for a while. Rhain has some great tips and really helped us understand how to start then work through our project from start to finish and to problem solve along the way. Will be enrolling for smoother course when I’m on holiday again next year. Thanks everyone. Great experience!
