Interested in making gorgeous fashion accessories that stand out from the crowd? Join Charlotte for this weaving class in the Moreton Bay region and learn how to make your own raffia hat, handbag or purse.

These accessories are so easy to make and you don't need to have any experience in sewing, plaiting or weaving to give this class a go.

During this four hour workshop, you'll learn how to plait using four strands (not the traditional three you may be more used to!).

Once you have the knowledge of making any of these accessories, you can make a huge beach or market bag or even floor mats, broad-brimmed hats and so much more. You're only limited by your imagination where this skill can take you!

Classes are limited to a maximum of 10 students, allowing for lots of one on one attention, giggles and chatter. When your girlfriends ask you where you bought your bag, you’ll have the priceless pleasure and pride of saying “I made it myself!"

Creativity is contagious, so express yourself learning new skills and enjoy exploring your inner creativity in a warm friendly environment where you can make something beautiful and meet and connect with other like-minded crafters. Being creative is beneficial to the mind, body and soul.

Mel Howe, busy mum and business owner of Sister 2 Sister Hair Salon the founder and creator of Workshop Sisters found it difficult to find crafty workshops on Brisbane’s Northside after trying to find workshops she could do with her son. This gave her the dream of creating that special place where mums, dads, sons and daughters could come together and bond while creating special memories by opening the back of the salon to the community for small businesses to conduct fun, crafty workshops.

Offering a wide range of fun and affordable workshops to suit our busy and time-poor lifestyles.

We have a very versatile space that can accommodate hens party’s, catch up crafternoons, baby showers and bridal showers. Bookings are essential for group parties.

Workshop Sisters outsources their workshops to various talented crafty collaborators. Proudly supporting small businesses.

Workshop Sisters are open to all kinds of workshops. We are always on the lookout to collaborate if you would like to share your talents.
