Lessons, Classes and Events in NSW
Taking a class can be as entertaining as it is educational – as well as being a fantastic way to meet new people. You'll find a range of great classes and lessons to choose from around NSW.
For starters, there are quilting and craft days on NSW's North Coast for keen sewers. You'll also find samba classes, outdoor art lessons and cheese-making schools in the region. At Coffs Harbour's Corindi Beach, you can take classes in Aboriginal art, basket-weaving and the lingo of the local Gumbaynggirr people.
In Byron Bay, why not attempt to paint a masterpiece in three hours flat, or indulge your inner circus performer with a flying trapeze class? You'll also find workshops in sculpture and design in nearby Lismore.
Cooking schools abound in NSW's Hunter Valley, with classes in everything from Asian cuisine to candy making. And buddings chefs shouldn't miss Jervis Bay's range of food trails and cooking lessons, including options for kids.
Head to NSW's Blue Mountains for a range of classes, including the chance to try your hand at boomerang throwing and whip cracking in the Megalong Valley. And if you're in country NSW, you'll be spoilt for choice with art classes, patchwork weekends and saddle camps for horse-mad youngsters.
