Private Functions

Exclusive Workshops for Friends, Family and Colleagues or a Couples Workshop

Looking for something fun and different to do on a weekend getaway with your besties, a hens party or an intimate fun afternoon with someone special?

Make something for yourself (or as a special gift) together with hours of laughs and bonding, and just being creative together. Steal away some time with your friend and give something different a go! We promise you’ll have some great fun.

Organising a private function is the perfect way to “roll your own” workshop for a group of people. You choose the day of the week and the time you want to start. Anything from team building, to girlfriends weekends away or special birthday parties. It’s a great way to try something creative in beautiful Noosa. Maybe stay a night in one of the many accommodation options that the region has on offer.

It was a great day, well paced with generous support from Cathy to get a credible result for all of us in this one-day workshop. A fabulous work space and I look forward to picking up my hare after firing. I will most certainly be attending more workshops. Thank you again Cathy.
