Something for every Mum

She brought you to the world. She raised and nurtured you to be the person you are today.

So treat mum to a memorable and unique experience. An experience that will make her smile. An experience that will take her breath away. One that will let her stretch her creative wings and inspire her curiousity.

She might pick up a new hobby, she may meet some new like-minded friends. She'll definitely have a fantastic time.

Let mum escape for a solo adventure, or give her and dad a beautiful time to bond. Or tag along for a family adventure. And if you're not sure what mum likes, just get her a gift card instead.

Without further ado, here are 5 ideas for Mothers Day (but don't feel like you need to offer mum just one!)

  • Flower arranging. This is a classic, for good reason. Why give mum a pre-made bouquet, when you can let her have all the fun of choosing and arranging the flowers herself?

    Setsuko, the founder of Yuga Flora, is a master of traditional Japanese Ikebana techniques, as well as European styles. Mum will get invited behind the scenes at the floristry, where she'll indulge in the meditative experience of creating an artform using the season's freshest blooms and foliage, under Setsuko's patient guidance. Class sizes are deliberately kept small so that everyone gets enough attention and space to produce a masterpiece. Practice the elegance of Ikebana, make a classic bouquet, or even try flower and fruit arrangements. Come along and experience for yourself as to why Setsuko is Sydney's most highly rated flower arranging teacher!

  • Chocolate making. Chocolate is lower in calories if you make it yourself! Make a fabulous chocolate basket from scratch, under the expert guidance of the chocolatiers at Adora chocolates, in their specially crafted Mother's Day class.

  • Jewellery making. Mum will have heaps of fun choosing and combining elements such as Czech glass crystals, to create tasteful artisan jewellery, ranging from earrings to necklaces. Leading the session is legendary local designer and artist Christine Smalley of Etelage.

  • Macaron making. Let mum discover the fun of making these petite treats. MakMak macaron's CEO, Carlos, will give mum a detailed demonstration of how his unique macarons are made (PS: MakMak's macarons were recently judged as best in Sydney by experts, ahead of Laduree, Zumbo, etc). Mum will also take away a kit to continue her macaron making adventures at home.

    Pottery. Make a teapot and play with a potter's wheel. Mum will love getting her hands dirty, learning all about the basics of pottery from Marion, who's been teaching this for over a decade to rave reviews. Mum will get a functional teapot that she'll treasure for years to come. While you're there, make sure to enjoy the tranquil and breathtaking surrounds of Bundeena, and make it a proper escape for mum.

    In all these classes, mum will get to take what she makes, so she'll leave not only with a cherished memory and a new set of skills and perspectives, but also with the fruits of her efforts.

    100 more classes are available at Classbento. So find one that mum likes (and maybe treat yourself too), but don't delay spots are limited.

    Here's to a happy and inspired mum, and to a memorable Mother's Day!
