Update 27th July 2021 : As of 28th July, the studio will be open for workshops with covid measures in place.
If you have any queries please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for your support!


In January 2021, our workshops recommenced after a long closure due to COVID. Whilst things are running quite differently, in a COVID safe way, we are so excited to be back in some capacity and the demand has been overwhelming. I am so grateful for the support we’ve received throughout COVID and moving forward.

We are trying to list workshops in blocks as we usually do but this is proving to be a little difficult due to snap covid lockdowns and restrictions so workshops will be added periodically for the remainder of the year and  I'll be adding more as demand calls for it - a bit different from how we usually run things (with workshops usually being released in 6 month blocks) but I think given the circumstances with COVID, this is the best way to do it for now.

If there is a session you’d like to book it for that is sold out, please send me a message/email or sign up for the restock notifications. I’m always happy to try and schedule extra session if I know the demand is there.

Thank you for your support. I hope to see you at the Studio very soon and look forward to welcoming you into our 'Whimsical' Community.

The Whimsical Bead Studio has been 'Connecting People Through Creativity' since 2006 and is based in the beautiful tourist town of Healesville, Victoria, in the heart of the Yarra Valley.
We run workshops in a variety of mediums and have a team of friendly, highly experienced, professional tutors.

We pride ourselves on our relaxed yet, professionally run workshop space where you can feel comfortable no matter what your personality or skill level.
We understand that each student has individual expectations and needs and we are more than happy to work with you and any issues you may have when attending our workshops - from food intolerances to anxiety disorders - please feel free to contact us with any queries you may have.

Our workshops are generally listed 6 months at a time and usually released in November (for January - June) and May (for July - December). We may also add a few extra events & workshops here and there during the course of the semester if demand calls for it.

Here at The Whimsical Bead, we offer Special Occasion Sessions which are perfect for Birthday Parties (adults and childrens), Hen's/Bachelorette Parties, Team Building Events, Girl's Day Outs - any Event that you can think of! We also offer Creative Fundraising sessions for your school/community group. Private sessions are available too.
Often we run Social/Open days for our students to connect and create together without the pressures associated with learning new techniques.

Over the years, we have built a wonderful little community of students and for many, the Studio has become a 'safe haven', a place to 'get away from it all' or simply just an escape from the chaos of everyday life. It has been heart warming to see the creative growth of many students, the beginning of lifelong friendships being formed and to also have been a part of many breakthroughs, discoveries and achievements of students both creatively and personally.

We hope to see you at the Studio very soon and look forward to welcoming you into our 'Whimsical' Community.
