Why choose gift experiences?

An experience day makes the perfect present because they provide not just an object, but a lasting memory brimming with fun, creativity, and knowledge.

Unique experience gifts in London keep on giving

What's more memorable and meaningful than a beautiful physical present? The answer lies in gift experiences that encourage learning and creativity. Unlike tangible items that may be forgotten or discarded over time, the skills your loved one will learn at one of our workshops will have enduring value — they continue enriching lives well beyond the moment.

Whether you’re seeking cool birthday gifts, a special Christmas present or simply want to surprise your loved ones with something different to keep them busy, there's something for everyone here — from beginners eager to learn basic sewing techniques to seasoned hobbyists looking forward to mastering intricate macrame knots. 

Learn basic sewing techniques

Our workshops where your loved one can learn to sew are a treasure trove for anyone intrigued by threads and fabrics. Overseeing each session are experienced instructors who guide participants through every step — from handling a sewing machine proficiently to stitching their first piece of fabric.

This isn't just about tailoring clothes; it’s about building confidence in crafting something beautiful and practical from scratch — which has got to be one of life's most satisfying experiences!

Master macrame knots and create stunning designs

Who knew tying knots could be so artistic? Macrame, with its beautiful tapestries and plant hangers, has never been more popular – and with our workshops, your crafty loved one can head off on a creative journey to master macrame knots in ways that are both relaxing and rewarding.

Under the watchful eye of expert tutors, they'll transform cords into beautiful patterns, creating unique pieces that reflect their personal style. These skills can then be translated into making gifts for others or adding a personal touch to their home decor.

Get cosy and discover how to crochet

Crocheting is therapeutic and produces stunning results — think colourful granny square blankets, soft toys and stylish cable knit accessories. Our workshop is perfect for beginners looking to learn this timeless craft or experienced hook wielders wanting to expand their skills.

The joy of crocheting lies not only in the making but also in the pleasure of using or gifting something handmade. Plus, it's an excellent way to unwind after a busy day – what could be better than getting cosy with super soft yarn, a hot cuppa and your crochet hook?

Pottery classes guarantee a wheel-y good time 

If playing with clay sounds like their idea of happiness, then look no further! Let them try their hand at a wheel throwing workshop hosted by skilled potters, where they’ll get to create their very own handmade clay project. They’ll be guided through the whole process, from moulding damp clay on the potter’s wheel to baking it in high temperatures to create gorgeous pottery pieces. 

If they fancy something a little more slow paced, why not opt for pottery painting? It gives them free rein to express their creativity and personalise their piece, making it a truly unique gift.

Candle making classes will light up their life

Scented candles have a certain charm that can transform any space into a magical haven, so how about letting them create that magic themselves? Our candle making classes will allow them to delve into the art of hand-pouring wax, mixing fragrances, setting wicks, and crafting beautiful homemade candles. Now, who wouldn't love such an enlightening experience?

Create lovely lettering with brush pen calligraphy

If they’ve long been mesmerised by beautiful handwriting styles, we’ve got the perfect gift experience with our brush pen calligraphy workshops. They’ll learn from experienced calligraphers who will guide them step-by-step in mastering elegant letter formations, improving their penmanship skills and creating stunning handwritten artworks. From Christmas cards and invitations to wonderful wall art, they’ll be able to create it all once they’ve mastered those loops and tails!

Jewellery making workshops are a treasure trove of delights

Jewellery making classes present an opportunity to create personal, exquisite pieces of art – and whether they’re into beaded boho vibes or contemporary minimal silver pieces, there’s something for everyone. These sessions cover a range of techniques from beadwork to silversmithing, allowing participants to explore their creative vision and design unique works of wearable art.

Whether they prefer the rhythmic calm of stringing beads together or the thrill of shaping metals into intricate designs, these workshops offer a comprehensive introduction into the world of jewellery making. They serve as perfect experience presents for those passionate about adding a personal touch to their wardrobe or creating heartfelt presents for loved ones.

Soap making is a sweet smelling creative journey
