Workshops & Events
The Makers Society teaches both public workshops and private events. Our public workshops are ticketed, usually held at the Hop & Grain in Marrickville. Any enquiries about upcoming events can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can check our Eventbrite page to see what’s coming up.

Book a Private Workshop
Book the Makers Society (in the form of Erin & Leesa) for your next birthday party, hens night, baby shower or corporate event! We will come to you, with everything you need to complete your project and take the group through from beginning to end, teaching them a new skill. Our workshops are a great alternative to a typical hens night, although we are happy for you to sip champagne while you get your craft on!
Floral Crown Workshop
We will teach you how to make a fresh floral crown with your best gals from scratch! There’s nothing like learning a new skill but it’s even better when you can wear it! Our floral crown workshop is perfect for a hens night activity to get everyone bonding before a fun night ahead.
Bouquets of Blooms Workshop
We will show your group how to make a take home posy of seasonal flowers all the while learning some basic floral arranging techniques and a little about the flowers you are working with. We can also organise vessels for each and every guest if needed!
Make something decorative for your home with our Weaving Workshop. We teach either wall hangings or macrame planters in any size, colour or shape. We teach a few different techniques – a thick gauge weave (macrame style – works for both wall hangings or planters) or a tighter gauge (more time consuming, often using wools, only wall hangings).
We have a variety of craft projects to choose from or we can customise a workshop to suit your party and friends! Got a Mexican theme? Let’s make piñatas! Got a group of foodies? Let’s pickle (or jam!) it up!
Costing for our workshops varies from project to project but starts at $40 p.p with a group minimum of 8 people. We are based in Sydney and can travel to within the Sydney and Central Coast regions. If needed, we can arrange a venue in the Inner West with an additional venue hire fee.
