Confetti Club (aka Kids’ Class) with Janelle Evans
Our Kid’s Class is affectionately known as the Confetti Club – each Wednesday afternoon during the school year we hold a class from 3.30 – 4.45 where children can come and have fun producing beautiful craft projects. We do scrapbooking, cardmaking and ‘off the page’ projects such as mini books during the class. The cost each week is $10 which includes the cost of materials. Each child needs to supply their own adhesives (glue and doublesided tape) and scissors. A paper trimmer is also handy to have and can be purchased (along with the other items) from our store. If you’d like to join the Confetti Club phone or email as bookings are essential.
NB Confetti Club classes are not held over the school holidays, however during the holidays we hold a Mums and Kids class on Thursday afternoons from 1-3pm - Cost is $24 per family (1 adult and 2 children) and $20 for one adult and one child - with extras being $8 per person. Each class participant makes the 3 cards in the class and we ask that you provide scissors and adhesives for you and your children. (Phone or email to book)
Big Shot and Cuttlebug Classes with Norma Newman
These classes are held on a fortnightly basis on the alternate weeks to our morning Cardmaking classes with our Cuttlebug Queen Norma.

The classes are held Tuesday afternoon from 1-3pm and Wednesday 9.30 to 11.30am. The class cost is $17 and you'll make 3 beautiful cards. Bookings are essential.
Scrapbooking With Suzanne Tonga
If you would like the opportunity to scrapbook like our much published and sought after Sue, then Tuesday morning is the class for you. Sue's classes offer an advanced level of techniques which will take your scrapbooking to a level you may not be brave enough to attempt on your own. Sue's is always up to date with the latest trends, papers and techniques and is always willing to share her beautiful ideas and techniques. These classes are held every Tuesday morning from 9.30am-11.30pm. The cost of the class is $13 plus kit costs.
Scrapbooking with Barbi
Our Thursday morning class is our original class (which commenced over 13 years ago) and are still going strong. Each week Barbi shows the ladies how to create a lovely layout incorporating many of the newest papers. Class layouts are displayed each week, so photo preparations can be made for the following week. These classes are growing and as with all our other classes, bookings are essential. These classes would suit the scrapbooker who is a beginner as the layouts are not technique laden. These classes are $12 and material costs are extra.
Heritage Scrapbooking Classes with Barbi Shipton
Our heritage classes provide a relaxed and social atmosphere to share stories, reminisce and create layouts using older photos. Layouts can usually be adapted to suit various photo types and sizes and classes cost $12 plus materials. Bookings are essential
If you’ve started scrapping but haven’t got the space or time at home to get things done, - why not book and use our workshop space – for a low fee of $5 for 2 hours or $12 for the day, you can use our table, ideas books and tools as well as enjoy bottomless tea and coffee. Workshop bookings can be made whenever classes are not being held – check with the store for availability.
