7 Workshops we’re looking forward to in July

During the colder months, we tend to hibernate and watch way too much Netflix but why waste the days in front of the TV when we could be learning something new! There are some amazing workshops and masterclasses happening in Subi next month to inspire a new hobby in all of us.

Because who says it’s hard to find a hobby? Judging by this list—the difficult bit will be choosing what to do!

1. Late Night Paint Night

Once a month, the amazing team at the Painted Teapot host an adults-only paint night! From 6pm – 9pm, enjoy an evening of grown-up fun and creativity. Starting with the perfect canvas, they have an amazing collection of ceramics to choose from. From mugs to teapots, planters to candle holders, butterfly-shaped jewellery plates and everything in between. The best thing about it, it’s also BYO. So gather the pals, a bottle of wine, some nibbles and get creative!

Dedicated caviar ambassador, Lisa Downs is heading to Simon Johnson Providore in Subiaco for a special foodie masterclass. Lisa will take you through an exploration of the history of caviar, what the market is like, how it is sustainably sourced, how to taste it and why we love it so much. Of course, there will also be caviar tastings with matching canapés, champagne and vodka.
P.S. participants will receive 10% off all the Simon Johnson’s goodies purchased on the night.
