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.

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

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!

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

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!

Jewellery Making Class: Sterling Silver Ring

I did this class today not knowing what to expect as it was a gift from friends. I loved it. I had a great time with the others and learnt so much from Marlie. I'm happy I've come home with a good knowledge (as well as some wax pieces!) To be able to go out and make a jewellery piece on my own. I can't wait to pick up my ring. Thanks for having me Jennifer O'Connor

Jewellery Workshop: Wax to Sterling Silver

Wonderful class, teacher was amazing. Very well run. A lovely setting. This class would make a lovely gift or to attend with someone special. Highly recommended.


Tipsy Terrarium Workshop: Make and Sip

Great class and super fun. The teacher was super engaging and full of plant knowledge. Great idea for a birthday present for a plant lover. Plants and items included are great quality and super cute. Would certainly recommend.

Tracey Quinn

Dumpling Cooking Class

The class was really informative and friendly. I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend who is even less than a beginner cook. We have since made these at home a couple of time and it was so much fun!

Alexandra Keogh

Silver Spinning Ring Workshop

Purchased this workshop as a birthday present for my teenage daughter. We loved every minute of it and learnt so much! It was lovely to meet Hee Cho. She was very patient & helpful along the way. My daughter and I both walked out at the end of the evening with our own stunning individual rings. Highly recommend this class!


Floristry Workshop: Tall Seasonal Blooms in a Vase

The class was a present and due to lockdowns was deferred twice but a suitable date was found. Relaxed atmosphere; teacher was helpful, parking available . Thoroughly enjoyable.

Ashlee Bellamy

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

Silver Letter 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.

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.

Christina Vitsentzatos

Perfume Making class

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

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
