I have always had that intuitive urge to 'create' something with a purpose: a new vegetarian recipe, a cake that would still be calorie-friendly, a soap that would nourish my skin with essential oils, a paining that would tell a story of my childhood, a candle that would smell divine?

By day, I am a fulltime ICT Professional helping product teams build great software applications that deliver an awesome User experience. In my moonlight hours and occasionally on weekends, I enjoy this experience of facilitating crafts workshops at my adorable apartment thereby follow my own passion (thank God I found a way), do what I love (or else no point yea), exercise my entrepreneurial skills (or at least I would think so), stay emotionally healthy (this one is real), meet new people (when Sydney reportedly is world's 3rd worst city to make new friends), and do my bit of promoting mental health.

In my journey of hosting the picnics, cooking, baking, fitness and crafts experiences in Sydney, I have come across a range of creative people, many of whom discovered things to be a fun hobby and some who have taken it further and started selling stuff online.

My pursuit of the little joys of life continues as I look forward to share these experiences with you!

I was looking for a first time resin experience- - The teacher and her husband were friendly and knowledgeable- with a personal one on one experience. The experience was held in there home with stunning views- all materials were supplied. I would not hesitate to recommend them

Jessica Aravena Feb 2024


I took my mum for her birthday and we had a great time! Vishakha was a lovely host with a lot of knowledge. We made quite a few candle and I feel I learnt everything I needed to, to kick start my own small business. We had a great group that got on well. Highly recommend this class for a beginner and just to have fun

Vishakha was a great teacher and her husband Bobby was also on hand to teach also. It was a relaxed environment and everything I wanted to learn I did. Vishakha was patient with me and gave me confidence in using my circuit. Great view of the city and they both made me feel like I was their mate! I will be back! Can’t wait to put my labels on my pantry containers.

This was my 3rd soap class and the most enjoyable. The class was held at the teachers home with the most magnificent view over Sydney. Taking a few deep breaths while taking in the view was a perfect start to the class. Visakha was friendly, patient and passionate. Sharing her knowledge while guiding me through the process, I gained lots of extra knowledge in this soap making class. If I lived in Sydney, I would do this class again just for how enthusiastic I felt when I left. Thanks for the wonderful experience :)

The class is fun however the moulds were very small and made it challenging to get the trees out. The photos imply they are much larger however they still were super cute.

What a joy it was to participate in the candle making class. Vishakha has was an excellent teacher and made us all feel very welcome. I learn’t so much and am pleased to have done the course before trying it at home. I took home so many beautiful candles and decorated scented wax blocks. So happy to have learnt a new skill. It’s always lovely to make something homemade.

Vishakha,was a great host was very organised and went out of her way to help all of us and made a fun afternoon.The venue was great and welcoming.We all got a beautiful set of candles to take home… that we made.I would definitely recommend this fun afternoon.Thankyou.

Thank you.

This class was fun, lonely teacher and nice atmosphere. I'm glad I did it. Some room for improvement:

- There were supposed to be 8 people in the class but only 5 showed up-- I'm really glad because it would have been way too crowded with 8 people .

- It would have been nicer to have the directions at the beginning of the class so we could have taken notes directly on them (and corrected the typos)

- I would have appreciated a vegan option for the dough recipe

It was a 10/10 candle making experience I attended for a spring evening. Vishakha was well prepared to run the show - we had the table ready with our selected jars, printed handout, other materials and designated standing spots with our names. It felt welcoming! Plus the venue - breathtaking Sydney city lights that I had only seen in movies. Decent price as well for the lot I made for coming Christmas. Highly recommended, and I am going to do her Resin class as well now!

Learnt something new that is fascinating. The craft kit was lovely, arrived on time, with everything in just enough quantity to complete the artwork. As per teacher's guidance, we could use our own tray base as well if preferred that way so I decided to use my own ceramic tray to pour resin onto and give it a beautiful new life. I was explained everything in detail on a zoom call with them monitoring and giving useful tips as I worked with my artwork. So very happy with how it came out.

Charlotte Colman Jun 2022


My eyes were stuck wide open as I received the craft kit. It had everything exactly as described in the class listing - 6 glasses to make candles in, 6 wicks, 6 stickies, 6 warning labels, 3 different scents, 3 wax slabs, 2 wick holders, 2 pegs, 1 stirrer, 1 jug and 1 theremometer. It's A LOT of things for the price I paid. The online class was equally awesome. We were explained the whole process on a zoom call while Vish making the candle herself on the camera and showing us all the steps in the process in detail. So glad how my candle came out in my first attempt at candle making.

What a great start of a long weekend I had attended Vish's candle class earlier and I was only keen on joining her new classes of low calorie cake baking and herbal tea blending. It's surprising for me to find out that you can actually bake the cake that is "flourless" and thereby "carb reduced" while at the same time rich in texture, yum in taste, and a visual treat to an eye. I am going to have to muster a lot of courage to actually cut this cake tomorrow! I was provided all ingredients - organic almond meal, fresh oranges, premium vanila and almond essences, and everything else needed for a bake. The 270 degree wide open views of her balcony were amazingly uninterrupted (do you even get this in Sydney?) and we ended up enjoying VIVID from her balcony while the cake in the oven was baking! It was peaceful relaxed environment, and an experience I would recommend to all. Super IMPRESSED how the cake came out. Such a great value for money as well. Thank you Vish for helping me discover a way of devouring dessert while at the same time remaining within the rules of my high protein low carb diet plan. Many thanks!

This was such a fun, hands-on and therapeutic class! I really enjoyed the process of making and decorating my candles under Vish’s guidance. The most satisfying part was towards the end when we got creative with glitter and all sorts of little trinkets to decorate our candles and give them their own little story. I would loveee to come again. Thanks Vish! Your love of candle-making is contagious✨‍♀️

Vishakha was very welcoming, she had everything beautifully setup for us in her penthouse balcony with 270 degree city views. We had a bit of a chat over her self blended herbal tea as we waited for others to join. As we started, the surprise goodie bags of handmade gifts awed us all. She explained everything step by step and took us through the process of candles-making right from where to source the quality materials from, the measurements, the formula, the science behind the right wick size, what temperature to heat the wax upto, when to mix the fragrances and the dyes, what temperature for pouring, when to put the deco's as well as how to rescue your candles in case you miss those timings. The tops came out clean the first time right and it made me only proud as this is my first attempt at making candles. We carried all of our creations home, which was 3 bowl candles and 2 jar candles plus 3 fragrance blocks and a couple of tea-lights so it's a lot for the price I paid. I thank her for the amazing workshop and highly recommended her classes.
