Let your creativity out to play

Written by Roxanne Spies

If you’re keen to live out your creative dreams (I mean, who isn’t?) and learn something new, you can’t go past DIY WORKSHOPS! They’re the perfect way to carve out some creative me-time, reconnect with your hands, get social and just have a little fun. It’s easy to see why these group workshops are such a growing trend right now. But the best part? Getting to style your home with something beautiful YOU made chefs kiss!

Fraser Coast, it’s time to get your workshop on!

More and more opportunities to get your workshop on are popping up around the Fraser Coast. My own passion for flowers, whilst always there, was really ignited at a flower-crown making workshop about seven years ago. So, it’s safe to say I’m a big fan.

Ready to get creating?

Here’s just a few of the local small businesses who can scratch that DIY itch for you. No matter your skill level, all these workshops will have you feeling empowered and leave you with your hands cradling a stunning, stylish piece of art to take home.

Do something for yourself and go it solo, grab a friend, or get a private or corporate group together. You won’t regret it.

Pottery Love

Get your hands dirty with the beautiful Billi, local pottery-queen from VDW Pottery, at her home-based workshop in Maryborough. This amazing business offers wheel-throwing and hand building classes, either as one offs or four-week courses. I love!
