Japanese Kokedamas

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!

Make Your Own Silver 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.

Watercolour and Wine Class

Thank you so much for such a wonderful class. I purchased this for a graduation present for my friend & I to do together, and it was so nice to get creative and switch off for the night. And thank you to Liana for teaching us such great watercolour skills - you are an excellent teacher

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

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!

Eco Candle Making Class

We made soy scented candles and it was a very welcoming and informative private class! My first class with handmaker's factory and with classbento. It really was an amazing experience and ended up being a nice gift which mum appreciates :)

Abstract Painting Workshop

Myself and a friend took part in an abstract painting class on Saturday morning. It was a 30th birthday present to get creative and try something new. On arrival we felt very welcomed and entered a lovely calm and friendly environment. Our teacher was Andrea and she was fantastic! I am definitely not a painter and she made me feel confident in what I was doing and encouraged my ideas and helped me when I was a little stuck. There were so many different paints, colours and utensils to get different layers and texture on our canvas. I had a wonderful  + more

Screen Printing Class

The teacher was very welcoming, knowledgeable, and thorough in explaining the process. They were also very present with everybody throughout the day. Very enjoyable workshop.

Russell Henderson

Hand Building with Clay Workshop

The class covered all the basic hand building techniques and Daisy was great at helping us utilise those techniques to realise our ideas to bring them into reality (of sorts!). While hours more practice would improve my end product - at least I now have Mother day's sorted gift wise!

Make Your Own Silver Ring Workshop

The teacher was excellent and very clear all the materials and tools were provided and I made a fabulous ring which was gift wrapped!

David Kidd

Casual Mosaic Classes

My workshop today was a Christmas gift from my husband and I really enjoyed the experience. The time was 10am to 1pm but I didn’t finish my piece until 2.30pm and was not rushed at all which I really appreciated. Merryl’s workspace, materials and facilities are wonderful I plan to attend again.

Sharon Lakua

Essential Oil Blending and Perfume Workshop

This class was a birthday present for my daughter at her suggestion. Fabulous gift as it turns out! We had a tiny experience of essential oils but you don't need to as Cat gave an outline and demonstration of how to mix oils to give a pleasing outcome. We had plenty of time to experiment in the funky city fringe venue which was very adequate for the class. We had access to a vast array of oils to experiment with. It was a lot of fun. Perhaps related to exposure to the oils, and/or using under-used senses and right brain hemisphere, we were both  + more

Polymer Clay Workshop: Statement Earrings

This is the second polymere clay class I’ve done and each time you learn something new. Sheree is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, the classes have a great atmosphere and you get to take home some of your own jewellery as well as a little gift box.

Erin Bishop

Hand Building with Clay Workshop

Great class for beginners and I’d love to do another. Daisy explained everything up front, and patiently helped us with questions (or fixing any issues!) throughout. The tumbler as a gift was a lovely bonus. Looking forward to seeing how my pieces turn out once they’re glazed and fired.

Make Botanical Wax Tablets at Home

Nicola was very professional and helpful, and the wax tablets were quite easy to make. Great beginners class for gift making!

Terrarium Making at Home

Lolita: “Most beautiful thing ive ever made, It’s just so lovely we have these events and I can use my new skills with zoom to access them. I am so thankful its must so exiting real achievement. “ Hi to the Events team, A very big thank you for organising today’s terrarium event. It was the best few hours I’ve had for a few weeks. Life has been challenging as a Carer & then a hospital stay for myself. I feel brighter this morning participating in this fun event. Hayley was excellent & it was lovely having interaction from other carers. Sadly  + more

Learn How to Weave at Home

Loved it, easy to follow, although a bit tricky at points. I got it as a present for mothers day and in turn for my mum for her mothers day. My mum is now obsessed, haha
