If you think you wouldn’t pay money to sit in silence, we
hear you (well, figuratively speaking). But what if we tell
you this class – which helps with posture, breathing and
focus – is free? Yep, your peace of mind has never looked
like a better investment.
Meditation Perth, TBA.
It may seem a little dorky, but improv classes can teach
you important skills like thinking on your feet and working
in a team. And just quietly, did you know Tina Fey and
Amy Poehler met through improv classes? Sign us up!
Just Improvise, ongoing.
Did Ron Burgundy’s seduction method inspire you?
Just like the anchorman, you can learn to play the
flute’s dulcet notes, and maybe impress the chicks.
Perth Flute Academy, ongoing.
If you’re partial to a night out in Northbridge – or,
um, just value your life – we highly recommend a self
defence course. Not only will you feel totally badass,
you can also hit the streets with the knowledge you’ve
got your own back.
Westar Martial Arts, ongoing.
FOOD & WINE
Impress your amigos – or maybe your señorita, wink
wink – by taking this Mexican cooking class that
teaches you how to make chicken fajitas, handmade
tortillas and sopapillas, and other spicy treats.
Guac ’n’ roll.
Cooking Professor, Mar 16.
SMOKE AND FIRE
It seems we have a primal urge to harness the
power of the flame. Exhibit one: our caveman
predecessors rubbing together bits of twigs.
Exhibit two: our burger feature, page 38. You’ll love
mastering epic feeds with the foodie experts from
Matters of Taste, like smoked chicken brioche sliders
and chimichurri flank steak.
Matters of Taste, Apr 4.
The average salmon is seven kilos,
roughly the weight of a bowling
ball; The Chemical Brothers
made a song about
them; and they’re
near perfect for
dinner parties if
you can do them
well. This class
stack, a salmon
fillet, and tangy
citrus tart. And hey,
your playlist is already
Urban Provider, May 6.

ARTS & CRAFTS
MAKING SOFT FURNISHINGS
Would you kill for a matching cushion and curtain set
like on The Mary Tyler Moore Show? Just take this
workshop, which lets you create your own cushions
and curtains in any fabric you please.
Central Slice, TBA.
PRIVATE KOKADEMA WORKSHOP
A koka-what-a? You may not know the name, but if
you’re anywhere near as fond of craft markets as we
are, chances are you’ve seen the Japanese-originated
decorations. The living plant-and-moss balls are cute
and unexpected ways to bring a bit of greenery
StudiOH!, by booking.
More than just a good pop-song analogy about
a strong independent woman (shoutout, Sia),
titanium is a key material in jewellery-making. Learn
how to colour the metal in an array of hues for fancy
brooches and pendants. Beginners allowed.
Fremantle Arts Centre, May 29.
SPORTS & OUTDOORS
Downward dog getting you down? Up the ante
with Acro Yoga, where one person acts as the base
support and the other is the flyer. Bonus points for
increasing trust and intimacy among partners.
Yoga Grooves, ongoing.
A sport where grinding against your partner is not just
permitted but actively encouraged? Yes, horndogs, get
excited. Think salsa, but much, much dirtier (and sweatier).
Juan Rando Dance Academy, ongoing.
JUGGLING AND MANIPULATIONS
No, it’s not code for teaching you how to cheat with multiple
partners. We’re talking literal, people! With juggling, hula
hoops, staff twirling and more, this is for everyone who has
ever dreamed of running away with the circus.
In the market for some refined playmates? Get thee to
a yacht club, where you learn to navigate the seas and,
later, the social cues of the cultured set.
Royal Perth Yacht Club, ongoing.
