Mother’s Day isn’t just like any other day. Mums deserve high praise all year round but this day is the ultimate excuse to treat your mum, or the mums in your life, to a lovely time in the city.

Stuck on ideas for Mother’s Day? We thought you might end up in a sticky situation like this, so we’ve pulled together a list of some of the best mum-friendly ideas to treat mum to a memorable and unique experience this Mother’s Day weekend in Sydney. An experience that will let her stretch her creative wings and inspire her curiosity, while having the best time of her life!

Arts & Crafts

Mums will love getting creative as these unique, interactive classes! Join Natalia Basalaeva of Le Motif and create your own ceramic wall art inspired by coastline! The Fluid Art Workshop will take you on a voyage of discovery and result in a wonderful artwork you will be proud to hang on your wall! Mum can also make her own hand-painted tiles wall decor with Natalia! The Ceramic Tile Wall Art Workshop will introduce you to the exciting world of glass and ceramics painting!

Mum can also Learn to Draw Portraits like a pro with Anya Shcherban, a talented production designer and illustrator. Under Anya’s guidance, you can learn how to correctly draw faces and features starting from individual facial features and working all the way up to drawing a face.

Jewellery Making

Mum will have heaps of fun choosing and combining elements to create tasteful artisan jewellery with Victoria White of Gems Rocks Bling. You can Make a Ring in a Day and create your own unique design.

The Make Your Own Gemstone Mala Workshop is another highlight as it offers an insight into the sacred world of malas. Find your personal vibrational gemstones, which can be used as a transformational tool to manifest and fulfil your soul purpose and assist you in finding a deeper meditation practice.

Flower Arranging

This is a classic, for good reason. Why give mum a pre-made bouquet, when you can let her have all the fun of choosing and arranging the flowers herself!

Mum will get invited behind the scenes at a local floristry and indulge in the meditative experience of creating an art form using the season’s freshest blooms and foliage.

Join Setsuko, the founder of Yuga Flora, a master of traditional Japanese Ikebana techniques, as well as European styles and practice the elegance of Ikebana or make a classic bouquet.

Or celebrate Mother’s Day with Flower Crowns Making with Nikki Zeng, the chief designer from Peony Story. One of the very few European-Style florists based in Sydney, Peony Story is renowned for its naturally wild, romantic and soft style to curate flowers to tell a story.

DIY Candles & Soap

Beautifully scented soy candles and natural handmade soaps are a great way to liven up any space in the home and at these classes, Mum can get creative and craft environmentally-friendly vegan candles or cold process soaps with pure natural materials with Elena, the owner of the Bellanina Creations Business. In the fun-filled Soy Candle Making Class you can create a personalised 100% soy candle. You can choose everything from the elegant container to the fragrance and final touches of delicate dried flowers.

Soap Making is another highlight with Elena! Mums will create a signature soap using all natural ingredients. This inspiring class might just lead to a new hobby, as most of the ingredients and equipment are likely to be in your kitchen cupboard!

Macaron Making

Let mum discover the fun of making these petite treats at the Makmak Macaron Making Class. MakMak macaron’s CEO, Carlos, will give mum a detailed demonstration of how his unique macarons are made. Mum will also take away a kit to continue her macaron making adventures at home.
