ARTS & CRAFTS
CROCHET WITH ANNA HADWIN
Learn amigurumi, the art of crocheting small stuffed
animals (yes, there’s a word for it), with Perth market stalwart
Anna Hadwin. Amigurumi are reputedly the most popular
items on Etsy, so consider peddling them for some bonus
cash. Beau Est Mien, Aug 24.
VINTAGE HAIR HOW-TO
If you think you were born in the wrong era, there’s not
much you can do about it – but at least let your hair live out
its rightful retro destiny. Ally Moschini of the Vintage Valley
teaches how to make Mad Men-worthy hairdos in a flash.
MANY 6160, Aug 30.
Those who like their art beyond surface level will love this
workshop that teaches how to make reveal-and-conceal
monoprints with layering, stencils and block colours. Go
on, go deeper. Beau Est Mien, Aug 31.
Calling all rock chicks. Okay, guys can come, too.
Learn fancy footwork, injury prevention and how
to fall (yes, there’s a correct way) at this indoor
rock-climbing centre. City Summit, fortnightly.
Known as ‘the dance of love’, this Brazilian dance
(like, let’s face it, everything else Brazilian) is sensual
and beautiful. Plus, the name is really fun to say –
go on, try it. Jus’ Dance, ongoing.
Originating from a post-disco era, in which a huge
range of people boogied under the same roof,
this is dance for the extroverts among us. And
unlike other forms of dance (cough, ballroom)
you could actually bust it out at a house party.
Dance Workshop, ongoing.
Fly me to the moon... Or, failing that, to Albany.
Get on a paragliding course and see Perth from
a bird’s eye view. West Australian Paragliding
A wine course to warm the cockles of your heart – not to
mention the rest of you. And exactly what is a cockle anyway?
Um, don’t answer that. School of Wine, Jul 29.
KIDS CLASSES – BUDDING CHEFS! AFRICA
Kids can’t stop singing Black Eyed Peas? In this class, they’ll
make Black Eyed Pea Fritters instead. Plus, adding exotic
dishes like Angolan Fish Calulu to their culinary repertoire
will make them a shoo-in for the title of Junior MasterChef.
Tastebudds, Aug 2.
JERUSALEM STREET FOOD
Ask yourself – what would Jesus eat? Spice queen Riki Kaspi
gets you acquainted with the cuisine of her (and Christ’s)
homeland. The Cooking Professor, Aug 4.
Spicy-salty-sweet-sour... Is it your mood swings – or is it Thai
cooking? This time, it’s the latter. So much more palatable!
Urban Provider, Aug 21.
SELF ESTEEM: DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT
Are you the kind of person that mumbles, always looks at the
floor, and is tempted to sob when you see a mirror? Consider
brushing up on your self-esteem. More essential than an
iPhone. Majestic Success, Jul 26.
VIRTUAL ASSISTANT BUSINESS
If you were as inspired by the movie Her as we were, you
might like this course on how to be a successful virtual
assistant. May or may not teach you how to have a sexy
Scarlett Johansson rasp. The Exceptional Assistant, Aug 15.
A little lacking in the, er, intimate department? Brush up
on your sexual prowess and emotional intelligence, and
learn the secrets of happy relationships. Australian Success
Academy, Sep 12-14.
AUSTRALIAN HYPNOSIS CERTIFICATION
For anyone who’s dreamt of making their friends squawk like
chickens, or perhaps has purer intentions and would like to
help people quit smoking or sleep better, there’s this weekend
hypnosis course. You are feeling sleepy... Australian Success
Academy, Sep 19-21.
Silk Peony Blooms
After an unhealthy obsession with Alannah Hill hair ornaments wreaked havoc
on her wallet, local girl Erin Steenson learned to make the pretty peonies herself.
The multitasking little garnishes can also be used as trimmings for gifts, corsages
and buttonholes. MANY 6160, Sep 14.
