ARTS & CRAFTS
How to Make an American Quilt? Who cares when you can
whip up an Australian one at this class, held in a corrugated
iron studio nestled in the bushland. Once you’ve got the
basics covered (geddit?), you can make beanbags and table
settings with your new skills. Quilting Matters, ongoing.
TO ARTISAN PRINTING
Having conquered vinyl, tweed suits and handlebars, hipsters
are now reviving the lost art of the letterpress. Not that
we’re complaining: we’ll take hand-impressed lettering over
WordArt any day. Oh, the nostalgia! Central Institute of
Technology, from Oct 15.
EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY –
ILLUSTRATING PICTURE BOOKS
Picture books seem basic, but making them is more than
child’s play. Award-winning illustrator James Foley leads this
step-by-step guide to illustration, from character designs
to storyboarding, and delves into the way elements of the
illustrations complement the text. UWA, Nov 15.
USE COLOUR LIKE AN EXPERT
Will that orange cushion pop against your fuchsia sofa – or
be the visual equivalent of fingernails on a blackboard?
Check out this class by an interior designer and colour
consultant who can help you create amazing colour schemes
for your house. Central Institute of Technolgy, from Oct 13.
BRING YOUR MUSIC TO LIFE
Positive you can write better songs than half the ones you
hear on popular radio? This six-week course will take you
from the early stages of songwriting to the arrangement of
melodies, working in collaboration with your classmates.
Central Institute of Technology, from Oct 14.
Maybe you dream of a better life. Maybe you have a vision
that could change the world. Or maybe you’ve just reached
your quota of recycled motivational quotes on Instagram,
and it’s time to seek a different platform. This workshop from
stationery fave Kikki K teaches you how to live with intention
and build your dream life. Includes a dream journal, coloured
in Kikki K’s signature pastels. Kikki K Subiaco, Oct 23.
PINTEREST FOR FUN AND PROFIT
Finally, validation for our Pinterest addiction! As well as
teaching the basics of the social media app, this class will
show you how to create inspiration boards for next year’s
Euro trip or your home renos – plus, how to leverage the
platform for your business. UWA, Nov 8.
FOOD & WINE
BUTCHERY WITH DAVID TORRE
Is all this talk of raw food and veganism enough to make
your carnivorous heart bleed? Well, here’s a rare (heh)
opportunity to carve up meat with one of Perth’s finest
butchers. Matters of Taste Cooking School, Nov 11-12.
Equal parts trendy and rustic? Fancy enough to sound
exotic but not so much you’ll be accused of food
snobbery? Yes, please! This class, held at our fave little
cooking store in Subiaco, has your next dinner party
covered. Kookery, Nov 15.
GRADUATE EXCLUSIVE COURSE –
GOAT CHEESE ON THE FARM
It’s like getting a PhD in dairy: they only take people
who can verify they’ve completed a prior Cheesemaker
course. Held in the picturesque Pickering Brook in the
hills, this class teaches the process of making goats
cheese – right down to milking the goat! Who’s the
big cheese now? The Cheese Maker, from January.
PRIVATE MONOGRAMMED JEWELLERY WORKSHOP
If your newly engaged bestie blanches at the thought of strip shows and shooters, book this private workshop for her
hen’s night instead. All you need is a party of five or more to make pretty monogrammed necklaces or key rings in the
loincloth-free comfort of your own home.
