I had a fantastic day with Dani at The Whimiscal Bead doing a polymere clay workshop.
I made a variety of pieces & learnt a lot about the process of polymere clay bead making.
Dani was very patient & a great teacher. I'm really keen to learn some more from her as her work is inspiring.
It was also lovely meeting other like minded ladies.

Hi Danni, thank you and Kay for the terrific Combine, Connect, Consolidate workshop on Saturday 12th Sep.
I had never attempted this medium before, and was so delighted with what I accomplished with Kay’s tutoring, encouragement (and in my case patience).
I enjoyed the day so much, and hope to join more workshops as soon as they
I proudly showed the results of my day to all the ladies in my craft group, they
are very impressed – it’s so nice when people think you are so clever?
See you soon Danni, Sadie

The Whimsical Bead, in Healesville run the most amazing workshops. I started with polymer clay and now have done, metal clay, metal smithing, and beading. It has everything to get those creative juices going.
I have attended many workshops now and have absolutely loved each one, I have learned so much and have grown creatively. The instructors are all such wonderful artisans and so generous with all their tips and extra time. Does not matter if you are a beginner or experienced there are workshops for all levels.
The studio is in the most idlic location and the lunch breaks on the back patio are legend. Every visit is full of fun, laughter and creative ideas flowing fast and furiously..
Cannot recommend highly enough!

have been going to the whimsical bead for a couple of years now and the products I purchase from Dani are of the highest quality. The classes that are held at The Whimsical Bead are very relaxed and fun. If you are ever thinking of giving clay beading a go do it today.

Have just spent the weekend at The Whimsical Bead participating in a workshop lead by the amazing Maggie Maggio. Maggie's knowledge and skill with colour was so inspirational and the hospitality shown by Dani was second to none! Thank you ladies for such a memorable weekend.

There are so many good things to say about the Whimsical Bead, the excellent customer service, the quality of the products, but for me the very best things are the workhops.
You immediately feel welcomed and at home and there is never any pressure to rush. As a beginner you are never left to flounder and are always made to feel at ease. Those with more experience are encouraged to fully explore and experiment with the new skills they are being taught.
The instructors and quality of the workshops are fabulous and I have made - and learnt - things that I never thought I would be capable of.
The beautiful location is just the icing on top of the cake. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Excellent service, fantastic array of supplies and a really talented proprietor/artist who will go out of her way to help you. I've learned an amazing number of techniques at The Whimsical Bead, and wouldn't go anywhere else for supplies or workshops.
