Brisbane's Best Craft Classes For Kids
Getting creative is great for kids. But for parents, it can mean racking your exhausted brain for new ideas of things to make, followed by what seems like hours of tidying up. Enter craft classes — no more mess in your kitchen or little voices demanding you come up with new fun things to do. Your kids will get to let their creativity run wild, and your kitchen will remain paint free. Win, win. Check out our list of Brisbane's best craft classes for kids.
Creative Kids Brisbane | West End
Creative Kids Brisbane offer free art classes at their outdoor West End Studio every weekday from 9am – 11am and at weekends from 9am – 12pm. With a different theme every day, from Toy Story aliens to Japanese wall art, kids are invited to join in with the day's activity or do their own thing if they prefer.
Colour My Pot | Cleveland
With a range of ceramic painting classes or pottery making classes in the school holidays, Colour My Pot in Cleveland is a fantastic way to nurture your little one's crafty side. You can also head to Colour My Pot as a family and choose something to paint together on a rainy weekend.
Sewing Adventures | Salisbury
If your child has an eye for detail and loves projects, the learn to sew course for kids at Sewing Adventures could be just what they need. Starting off with a five-week afterschool beginners class, the children will learn how to use a sewing machine and create their own apron, pillowcase and draw-string bag.
Drawing Room For Kids | Multiple locations
These classes are ideal for children nine and up with a real passion for drawing. Drawing Room For Kids has afterschool classes Monday to Wednesday in Petrie Terrace, Paddington and Corinda. The classes are aimed at children that want to improve their skills and involve things such as still life and life drawing.
Flying Fox Studios | Everton Park
When it comes to craft classes, Flying Fox Studios in Everton Park has you covered, with their creative STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths) philosophy — each of their classes is educational and fun. It can be a great socialising experience for the grown-ups, too, with a parents lounge with free tea and coffee for you to relax in while the kids get creative. There is also a backyard at the studio so the kids can play with their new-found friends after their session ends.
QAGOMA Children's Art Centre | South Brisbane
The Children’s Art Centre on Brisbane’s South Bank offers free classes for toddlers and their parents on “Toddler Tuesdays” to learn about art while enjoying games and stories (must book ahead). They also have a class for babies from four months old called “Art Starters” which involves multisensory interactive play.
