FOOD & WINE
Proof that you can add the prefix ‘chocolate’
to anything and it becomes instantly awesome,
Foodi’s chocolate walking tour will get you acquainted
with some of Perth’s best chocolatiers. You’ll learn
the educational stuff, like chocolate’s evolution from
a bean on a cocoa tree, plus the jargon used by
experts. But the best bit – and the part we know
you really care about – is the tastings at each
venue. Sink your teeth into that.
Foodi, Jan 30.
Pretty much every vego is well
acquainted with the annoying
phrase, ‘What about your iron?’
But don’t get mad, get vegucated.
At this fun course, you’ll make
hearty meat-free meals – like sweet
potato burgers or roasted cauliflower
with quinoa and chickpeas – that pump
more iron than Arnie.
Matters of Taste, Feb 13.
SPORTS & FITNESS
Could this class sound any more macho if it tried?
If you’re into punishing workouts – or just need to
harden the eff up – head to this hard-core boxing class,
where you can learn punching, footwork, strength, and
cardio fitness. Side effects: a bangin’ bod and Clint
Eastwood swagger. Hurt Locker, ongoing.
Long before Miley Cyrus took to the VMAs and
made parents cringe the world over, Jamaican ladies
were busy perfecting the art of twerking. And, just
quietly, they do it a damn sight better than Miley
ever could. Taught by the super-talented crew from
Elan – who have worked with Kelly Rowland, Jess
Mauboy and Boyz II Men – this class incorporates
moves like the cutty wine, willie bounce and the
boggle to help you shake what your mama gave you.
Elan Dance Est, ongoing.
HIP HOP IN HEELS
If walking in stilettos has you teetering around like
Bambi after a few too many, chances are you haven’t
even thought about dancing in them. But don’t dismiss
heels. In this class, you’ll learn how to master hip-hop
moves with burlesque sex appeal – and sculpt your
legs and butt in the process. Plus, you’ll actually be
able to use the dance moves in public (cough, Zumba).
The Dance Collective, ongoing.
ARTS & CRAFTS
ZEN OF DRAWING
Did you know two adult colouring books snagged the
Amazon bestseller top spots this year? Nope, it’s not
cos we’re all too dumb to read – it’s because putting
pencil to paper is seriously meditative. This class will
take your colouring zen to the next level, guiding you
through evocative etchings on touchable papers to
connect you with your emotions. No deep breathing
required. UWA Extension, by request.
For something so incy wincy teeny weeny, bikinis sure
don’t have price tags to match. Quit throwing away
hundreds of dollars – and all semblance of self-esteem
– on swimwear shopping, and make your bathers
yourself. In this class, you’ll learn how, with lessons in
constructing a triangle set, one-piece, and underwired
bikini top from scratch. Central Slice, term dates TBA.
Bit embarrassed that you’ve been to Bali six times now
and still don’t know how to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’
in the native tongue? So you should be! Brush up on the
basics of Indonesian with this class, then head out on
your next jaunt with your head held high.
Balai Bahasa, ongoing.
HOW TO KEEP A BEEHIVE
Most surprising hipster trend of 2015: urban
beekeeping. No, for real! If you love taxidermy, beard
art and pickles, make sure to add managing your own
to your alty
make sure you’ve been
stung by a bee before
– things could get thorny otherwise.
UWA Extension, by request.
SMARTPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS
Almost gotten into a crash gawping at those Taken with
an iPhone 6 ads on Stirling Highway? Take your photos
from blurry to billboard with this class that teaches you
how to get the most out of your smartphone. Watch your
Insta followers rise by the second. Photoh, Jan 16.
The Nourished Vegan.

Photography Class can
improve your street art
‘gramming skills (inset).
