in light of the current global situation with the outbreak of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We want to remind you we’re here for you in these uncertain but hopeful times and want to continue to promote our spirit of community, in the best and safest way possible.

We’re open! Yep, our Thirroul store will be opening on limited hours thursday to saturday 10-4pm. As a team, we’re doing our utmost to ensure strict hygiene standards both in the shop and whilst packing orders, and have increased our cleaning schedule. We are following government guidelines and will continue to monitor and implement these as they develop.

To continue to support our local artisans at this stage we are not making any changes to our workshops in late April and May. If you are worried about being unwell or unable to leave the home for future workshops, we want to remind you that we have a full refund policy up to 5 days prior to the workshop, and a 50% refund within the 5 days leading up to the workshop (just as we would have purchased the materials required for your place in the workshop). If there are any government/societal changes, we will reschedule as needed.

Your health and peace of mind comes first and we will be doing our best to re-accommodate everyone in a way that works for you.



I have no idea what I’m doing, is that ok?

YES, all our workshops are designed to suit beginners. Because our workshops are small numbers that means you get a lot of one on one time with the artist so you can learn and create something beautiful.

How many people attend your workshops?

We generally limit our workshops to a maximum of 14 people, that way we make sure you get the most attention from the artist and time for conversation with the other workshop attendees.

Are all materials provided? Do I need to bring anything?

In most of our workshops all materials are provided, unless we specify. We’ll let you know in the online description of the workshop if you need to bring anything with you, also we’ll send a reminder out to you a few days before so you can get organised before the day.

I can no longer make it, can I get a full refund for the ticket?

Yes, we can arrange a refund if you can no longer make the workshop however you must let us know 5 days before in order to receive a full refund as the materials will be purchased for the number of people attending. If you let us know within 5 days we will be able to refund 50% of the ticket price. Contact us to arrange by email.

Will your store be open at the same time the workshop is on?

No, we will be closed at the time of the workshops to make sure there’s no distractions. We’re open for business to our workshop attendees if you’d like to purchase something while you’re here.

Can children come to your workshops?

Most workshops are suitable for children 12 years and up, however they will need to purchase a ticket to attend. As we are only a small store unfortunately we don’t have enough room for children who are not participating in the workshop. Contact us if you’d like to discuss we may be able to make exceptions depending on the type of workshop we’re holding because we’d really love you to come but understand your family first needs.

Do you have parking?

There is on street parking available or alternatively you can park in the Library carpark behind the store.
