Craft & DIY


  • Street art in Brunswick, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Relaxing afternoons browsing Melbourne's boutiques bursting with handmade goodies might just stir your own urge to create. Book a workshop on a whim and spend a day in DIY delight.

Order some paints with your flat white to get the juices flowing at Carlton's Crafternoon Café. Return after hours for knitting and crocheting tutelage. Befriend a Janome at Thread Den's one-day sewing classes, or summon latent Home Ec skills and drop in for a session in the sewing lounge.

Go full renaissance with Harvest Workroom's one-day screen printing, lampshade making and even macramé workshops. Take the nugget of an idea to warmly welcoming Brown Owls gatherings and have a hoot sipping cocktails while other owls offer advice.

Keep an eye on the class calendar at Laneway Learning to get crafty in eclectic ways at CBD cafes and bars.
