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. Bettina is patient, friendly and a great teacher. Bettina’s studio is clean, peaceful and was well prepared. I would recommend this class to anyone looking to have a fun and simple pottery class!

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.

Isaac Leung

Vegan and Gluten Free Japanese Sweets 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

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

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!

Beginner's Kintsugi Workshop

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

Kintsugi Accessory Workshop for Beginners

The class was fantastic! I took my mum for a birthday present and it was perfect for that. Hitomi taught us a lot, not just about the process of kintsugi but about the history behind it as well. She was very patient with us and made sure that we left with a beautiful finished product. We will definitely be back!

Pottery Wheel Workshop: Embrace Wheelfulness

This booking was a birthday gift when I could not think of anything else to get and I was looking forward to it for many months, but only as something small and low key. Bettina was a charming, knowledgeable, patient but directive teacher. She is highly successful because she is passionate, but also keeps group sizes small and personal. We were all successful in turning out two items, so clearly the  + more

Art Kintsugi Workshop - Private

We had such a great time with Yoko learning about traditional kintsugi while also doing our own art kintsugi with materials we could find at Bunnings. I bought it as a birthday present for my fiancé and he loved it. The plate we repaired was really beautiful, so I can't wait to see what the end product looks like in a few days. I'm strangely excited for the next time we break a plate, so that we can  + more

Oselyne Ong

Cocktail experience

The class was very informative and you learn how to make the two most ordered cocktails. You make the first cocktail, they feed you, and then you make the second one, and they feed you again! The food was good too (tacos, chips, grilled corn etc.). Definitely a good present for someone that loves their cocktails, or just want to learn the basics on how to make them.

Her kitchen is beautiful and a great setting to cook and have a delicious lunch in. Thank you  + more

Cocktail experience

Exceptional value for money. We learnt about the history and production process for rum, and then made two cocktails step by step. So smoothly run, exceptional drinks and the plentiful food provided (at two different points in the workshop) was a highlight. This was a birthday present for me and it was such a lovely way to spend the evening. Thanks Brix
