Rhiannon Homer

Natural Skincare Making Workshop

Highly recommend this workshop! I went with my girlfriends as i bought it as a birthday gift and we all enjoyed the process of making a natural skincare for ourselves. Polly and Lu were really informative and engaging with the whole class, made the learning environment really enjoyable and interesting.

Rhiannon Durkin

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop

I booked this class for myself and my husband as a birthday gift to him. We absolutely loved it! Jun was a fantastic instructor, I love that he not only taught us about kintsugi but also about Japanese culture. It was a truly wonderful experience and I cannot recommend enough ☺️

Julie Tran

Needle Felting Class: Make a Dog Key Chain

Had a great time with Elin and Mochi. It took a while for me to understand the concept of felting but after a while of stabbing away, it became more fun as my dog was forming! Great to gift to a dog lover.

Mason Tang

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop

Jun is an expert in his knowledge of Kintsugi. He was very personable, genuinely friendly and made the class enjoyable. Would be a great gift idea if you don't know what to gift someone.

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop review by Mason Tang

Shelley Yin

Turkish Mosaic Lamp Class

Great class, self-paced but well guided. Booked this class as part of my friend's Hens Day and it was the perfect relaxing afternoon activity after a busy morning and before a hectic evening. Highly recommended! My only regret is I ran out of time to check out the beautiful gifts in the gift shop area as we had to hightail it to our next location soon after we'd finished decorating our lamps!

Glassblowing and Mosaic workshop review by Shelley Yin Sydney

Catherine Stander

Cocktail and Dumpling Making Class

We were given this as a gift, fantastic venue (easy to get to on public transport). The evening was a fun experience, really enjoyed making the cocktails. A great way to have a night out, after making the dumplings we were able to sit and chat over eating the dumplings we made. The whole experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend it as a gift or to spoil yourself.

Cooking workshop review by Catherine Stander Sydney

Georgia Battin

The Art of Indian Cooking Masterclass

I cannot recommend others to take this cooking class enough! Bhavna was an incredibly talented and knowledgeable teacher, extremely organised all while still being a lot of fun! The whole experience was a total breeze and took any usual stress of cooking away, so you could just focus on learning and take in all the information. As it was held in her beautiful home, it felt like you were cooking with  + more

Gardening workshop review by Sally Naser

Maria Trajkovska

Soap Making Workshop

This was a Christmas present for me and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience that Elena and the workshop offered! The class was small so we could get individual attention, and the tools, materials and decorations provided were plentiful with a big range of each. The class was a very good value for money, and Elena’s expertise, flexibility and approachability was great! We came away with an amazing  + more

Pottery workshop review by Vera Gallotti

Andrea John

Pottery Wheel Class: Make and Paint Ceramic Plates

Purchased this class as a birthday present for my friend. We both loved the class itself- learning techniques from Bettina and getting creative with shapes and colours.

Mosaic Taster Class

Was a fun class. The class teaches you how you could do this at home. It was a gift for my friend. I found it a great starter course and great for a one-off craft workshop. would do again.

Mosaic Taster Class review by Jacqueline Sudul

Isaac Leung

Cooking class

Saikawa-san is an expert in her craft, and she patiently walked us through the techniques and process of creating the Japanese sweets. Due to the time constraints of the class, we walked through the theory for creating the materials, and also had a demonstration of the preparation of nerikiri, rather than going through the full process of actually preparing the bean paste from the raw materials, but  + more

Vanessa Moss

Clay Hand Building Workshop: Trinket Dish

We really enjoyed this clay making class with Luka! There were various materials to learn to use like different coloured clays, lace patterns and stamps to create interesting patterns on our trinket dishes. Luka was friendly and super helpful with great tips about how we could experiment with the clay. The location was also great, in a loft with a coffee shop and an art-themed gift shop (which we unfortunately  + more

Simple Leather Card Holder Workshop

I had a great time with Justine on Sunday. Not only was she extremely patient with us but she also made the experience very personable. Each participant was able to choose their own designs from a wide selection and work at their own pace. Initially I had intended to make the card wallet as a gift but ended up adoring my own so much that I kept it. The class overall was very pleasant and I would  + more

Tom Burden

Meat, Cooked to Perfection Cooking Class

Paul is an absolute gun and he is a legend to boot. To have such expertise in the kitchen makes these classes a must do. Everything you do and learn is clearly from years of cooking at Sydney’s finest restaurants (and some pretty great global eateries as well). The food you make is amazing and is made on super high quality tools. A late Christmas present to my partner which she absolutely loved.  + more

The 'feast' is certainly a feast You get so much food so make sure you arrive hungry! The 2 cocktails are divine too, and so fun to make. The teacher made it entertaining and overall the experience was so fun. I went with my fiance and my parents for a Xmas present and I would 100% go again.

Midori was a fabulous teacher and really friendly and fun to chat with. I loved doing the origami - it was fun and at the right level for a class.

Beginners Candle Making Class

As a gift was looking forward to, but a little sceptical, what a nice surprise. Enjoyed the whole experience. Small group so very individual tuition, very interesting and informative as one does not give too much thought to what really happens in making candles and surprised and so pleased at the variety of perfumes and accessories provided and products made during class. Would highly recommend attending  + more

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop

Jun, our teacher, was excellent - very patient with our lack of skill and full of knowledge and helpful tips. The venue is small and spotless, so were all the varied tools provided. Everything was there, we did not need to bring a thing. The course was a gift to us, so we cannot comment on value for money, but we would be prepared to pay well for such a good course. the 2 hours just flew by, and we  + more

Fluid Art Workshop: Two in One

Loved the class! Chelsey is warm and generous. Chelsey has created a beautiful and relaxed space for art making. Such a gift for her students to learn in this meditative atmosphere. Chelsey explains the steps and methods clearly, and has lots of knowledge and technical experience to share. Explored new fluid techniques and Chelsey made working with resin fun and easy. Loved the results!

A fabulous afternoon workshop with Hitomi learning the art of Kintsugi. I bought this as a gift for my sister and she loved it too. Hitomi is very knowledgeable, patient, and a great teacher. I love the plate I 'mended' and plan to do more. Thank you Hitomi from Penny-san and Anne-san
