Loving learning living locally
Always wanted to learn to sew? pick up a paintbrush, make your own jewellery or candles for gifts? Then I know just the place to go...Work-Shop HQ in Redfern runs classes and workshops and has something to offer absolutely everyone.
You may not think you're creative.... perhaps never even explored that other side of your brain, but don't let that stop you discovering something about yourself you never even knew was inside you.
This learning space is full of the brightest and most imaginative minds in Australia, and lucky you, they've teamed up to create an astonishingly wide range of courses to tempt everyone.
Check out their website and you'll find classes every night of the week in such things as leather wallet making, perfume creation, 3D printing and stencil art, gardening, life skills and personal development, or how to cook doughnuts and forage for mushrooms.
The short-courses here are affordable and perfectly tailored to suit our time-poor lives. Plus, there is space for everyone around the rotating schedule of events provided. Local suppliers are sourced to provide materials that may be needed. The supportive environment can assist and guide you should you want to sell your work.
So let your imagination run wild, turn off the tele, and let your inner Mozart or Monet emerge. Community initiatives, information nights and a plethora of events will keep you engaged, growing, learning, and engaging in your local community in a new and exciting way.
