Book a Workshop

We have compiled a list of all the workshops that are part of Sydney Craft Week, and boy is it a long list! In fact there are over 100 workshops across all modes of craft! This is a testament to the thriving craft community we have in Sydney and for our insatiable desire to learn new skills and mindfully make.

Whilst you can search by Workshops on the homepage of the Sydney Craft Week website, we thought to include a comprehensive list, extracting all the workshops that the SCW participating organisations are hosting.

Sydney Craft Week's theme this year is mindful making, and there are a number of workshops that explore mindfulness. If this sounds like your kind of workshop experience, check out events such as: The Self Care toolkit workshop, Stitching Through Adversity, and the Mindful Hedonist along with programs of mindful workshops being hosted by the likes of Work-Shop, COMMUNE, Monster Mouse Studios, Made by Me Workshop and Artist Melissa Carey.

For those that like to dabble in the curious and bespoke, you'll find an array of very niche workshops in the mix, such as: handcrafting a dog toy, learning how to crochet male and female anatomy over a beer, making your own set of chopsticks and creating a self portrait utilising print making techniques. There really is something for everyone!

Workshops are starting to sell out, so we encourage you to explore all the events, get in early and book now.
