Sometimes the older we get, the less time we actually spend with our loved ones. Date nights can become less common, and before you know it, you’re spending most nights in front of the TV watching Netflix (after putting the kids to bed, of course). Why not shift the focus back to your relationship and spend more time together doing more of the things you enjoy most in the world.

With thousands of art classes, workshops and cooking classes to choose from, you’ll discover new ways of spending quality time together while bringing out your creative side. Our aim is to help couples learn new skills, and it’s our hope you’ll love your chosen class so much that you’ll start a new hobby or passion together when you get home. After a tumultuous few years, many people are enjoying taking time out of their busy lives in order to find more time to do things for themselves. Simply taking an hour out of your day can help improve your health and overall wellbeing, creating longer-lasting happiness.

Enjoy a meditative pottery class

wedding anniversary gift ideas

Maybe each wedding anniversary is spent going out for lunch together as a family? Whatever the tradition is, change it up this year for something a little more unexpected. In fact, it doesn’t get much more romantic than booking a pottery class as a beautiful wedding anniversary gift. With various pottery classes in Australia to choose from, why not learn the art of hand-building with clay? This hands-on is great for anyone who wants to continue on their pottery journey back at home, simply by using water and clay – with no machine necessary.

Or, why not book a wheel throwing pottery class? This traditional style of making pottery requires you to mould the clay with your hands using the pottery wheel. And of course, they could learn the art of kintsugi, which is a Japanese art form where they repair broken pieces of pottery with a beautiful gold lacquer.

There are so many different types of pottery classes for every couple in Australia to choose from. Guided by a local expert in this fun and engaging class, they’ll be surrounded by like-minded people from their local area who are keen to learn how to make their own pottery too. They’ll learn so many tips and tricks that aren’t available in any guidebook, and put their newfound skills into practice. They can expect to learn how to make mugs, bowls, cups, vases and so much more as they enjoy learning something new in this meditative class.

When they get home, they’ll have newfound confidence to continue their pottery making journey, and will no doubt have fond memories every day when they drink from their homemade mugs. This is a fantastic wedding anniversary gift and one that even the non-creative types will enjoy.
