Sip and Sculpt Class: Make Quirky Clay Plant Pots

I bought this as a birthday gift and we had such a brilliant time. Such a great way to bond with friends and express creativity! An absolute bonus that they have a fully stocked bar. Having a glass of wine made it just that little bit more fun. Would highly recommend this experience.

Donna Casey

Tea Blending Class

Absolutely loved the class. Ruan was fantastic and so knowledgeable. I wanted the class to go all day. Trying different blends, learning about tea and then making your own blend. It was a great venue as well. I brought a gift set which was beautifully wrapped. If you like tea then do this class. A great gift for someone.

Christina Tepper

Fused Glass Coral Bowl Workshop

My children gave me this class as a present for my birthday. My husband and I went to the class together and absolutely loved it! Merryl as a teacher was fantastic. She took lots of time with each participant, explaining the glass fusing process, the techniques we were going to use, and providing input and guidance about our colour choices and our designs. The venue was easy to find and parking was  + more

Olivia Patterson

Wheel Throwing Workshop

An enjoyable beginner pottery wheel class, we loved being able to make our own pieces. Charlie was a good teacher, approachable and bubbly. I would recommend class for absolute beginners. Great activity, really great to be present and focussed on making something. Be sure to wear old shoes, and clothes. Looking forward to picking up our glazed pieces in a fortnight!

Alex Johnston

Wheel Throwing Workshop

Helen was fantastic at getting us comfortable with the skills needed and was present throughout to lend a hand. The music in the background was a nice touch and with the fun my partner and I had there was certainly a lot of value for the price point. And that's before considering we'll be able to keep the pieces we made once ready. Thanks again guys!

Louise Pinchen

Gin Making Masterclass

THIS MASTERCLASS IN GIN MAKING WAS FANTASTIC. Liz was amazing, her knowledge of her craft is awesome. The product she makes deserves all the awards and recognition it gets. I’ve been telling everyone to do it. I got to make and take home a 500ml bottle of gin. Great gift idea. Lovely venue. Best way to spend 2 hrs.

Gin Making Masterclass review by Louise Pinchen

Steven Lamattina

Soap Making Class

Great class with a knowledgeable and friendly teacher. The space was organised well and got to focus on choosing what kind of soaps we wanted to make, rather than cleaning up etc., so great use of time. Ended up with a heap of soap, so good if you want to gift it! Mine were a bit ugly haha but had fun!

Nina Baird

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop

What a genuine experience from the lovely Jun and his wife. In depth, historical insight, passion and gorgeous skills. The class was easy to follow and almost meditative in process. The added touch of some little sweet and savory treats and tea was so lovely. I particularly enjoyed Jun's passion about Japan in general and his enthusiasm to entice us to travel there. I attended with my mother for whom  + more

Turkish Mosaic Lamp Workshop

This class was amazing. Took my sister for her Xmas present and we both came out of it with our own table lamp that we made. Materials and colours were amazing, so many colours of glass to choose from for our mosaics. The patterns on offer were also amazing. Our teacher was super helpful, with clear instructions and a lovely, inquisitive and calming nature. I highly recommend this class. Not only was  + more

Tipsy Terrarium Workshop: Make and Sip

I booked this class for a friend’s birthday present this year and am so glad! Our teacher was warm, bubbly and kind; and the class was mindful and calming. We had all the materials we needed to make cute terrariums, including a gorgeous array of plants… and we’re now looking forward to making more of these in our own time.

Terrarium workshop review by Madison Astbury Sydney

Colin Santi

Make a Silver Ring Workshop

Well firstly, it was a belated well thought of more than middle age birthday gift from my two children that attended with me. The atmosphere was warm & typically Fitroy, having lived there in the 70's. Which was nice as well. Anyway as with most things it was what you bring with you as an individual in character as well. Cait was a natural and lovely young girl of a friendly & helpful disposition .  + more

Simon Gough

Japanese Kokedama Making Workshop

We attended the kokedama class as a birthday present and it was a wonderful experience. The process was well-explained, along with a lot of advice on technique, care, and suggestions on how to decorate with the kokedama once we brought them home. We went home with four kokedama and an eagerness to learn more — would definitely recommend the class to others!

Japanese Kokedama Making Workshop review by Simon Gough

Alex Zhu

Silver Letter Ring Workshop

The experience has been extremely lovely. This is our first time getting to know how rings are made and getting involved in hands on experience. Hee Cho was warm, friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend anyone who wants to make a special gift or create an unique memory with your cared one.

Norm Crowley

Smartphone Photography Class

Tutor, Peter, presented a wealth of photography experience and knowledge to our small group of six that allowed group interaction and one to one advice (in a COVID safe way). Discussion progressed through the basic (but often unknown) smartphone features, many of the 10 aspects of composition and then included many of the skills of enhancement to present a resultant image that would impress any  + more

Merle Jaraba

Eco Candle Making Class

My husband and I enjoyed this soy candle making workshop at Handmaker’s Factory. This was our Christmas gift for each other. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. It’s good to be able to bring the finished candle projects home and light them up to enjoy it. Nicole is a very good teacher.

DIY Homemade Gnocchi

I did the class with my son as a gift for his birthday - he loves all things Italian. The gnocchi recipe was simple and delicious. Enjoyed the class which was practical and the presenter gave great tips and was very approachable too! Best of all the gnocchi was delicious - have recommended the class to all my friends and family - some even who live overseas given they can log in via Zoom!

So much fun - it was the perfect Mother's Day gift and we all enjoyed the way Daisy not only taught us how to do this in the class but gave us the instructions and tools to replicate it at home - well worth it and well worth opting in to have the ceramics provided from the studio of the gifted Daisy.

Ceramic Hand Building Workshop

This class was a gift and what a lovely morning. Everything was set up and Leah was so well prepared and helpful. She directed and assisted when asked without taking over and everyone seemed delighted with the final product. Morning tea was a gorgeous spread of cheeses and seasonal fruit with delightful fruit tea or juices. I would love to give a Classbento to my sister. She’d love it. I am ready to try a painting or drawing class Great day!
