It’s time to think outside the box and go beyond the basic family brunch this year. Treat mum like an all-star with our thoughtful Mother’s Day ideas for anyone living in Brisbane. Check out some of our favourite picks below and make this year’s Mother’s Day the best one yet. Some classes are offering awesome limited-time offer discounts, so be sure to spot the coupon codes below!
1. Take art as therapy
Mother’s Day is meant to be a day of relaxation and in these art classes, mum just has to sip, paint, and relax. Take mother dear to an unconventional drinking and painting class with Life with Paint whilst socialising with other people at a pub over some great music. If mum is looking to gain some serious art skills, Work-Shop’s art classes may be more up her alley. Learn expressive botanical art drawing or mixed media painting in their Brisbane headquarters.
2. Time to get crafty!
There’s something about creating something out of nothing - the care that has to go into each project, or the incredibly satisfying feels when you’ve completed a beautiful product. And what thrill will mum experience if she receives such an experience. Whether mum’s a novice or is already a frequent crafter, there’s a class offered that’ll fit her inner Martha. Work-Shop’s clay hand-building class may be just the place to get hands dirty and make stuff. If your mum enjoys crafting and gardening, gifting her with a succulent terrarium and succulent bouquet making will be the best choice. And if you want to make her feel extra special, have her join a fun jewellery making class at DAP Jewellery School where she comes home with a unique silver ring of her design.
Think your mum could be up for a little rough work? Then have her join a class and be part of an increasingly visible demographic of women who want to build their own furniture. SheSkills is teaching women to be savvy at woodworking, and are offering an introductory workshop and another class where you’ll be building furniture with wooden pallets. (CODE: mumsday10)
3. Make her the next top chef
Treat your mum to a special culinary experience for her special day and you may just be absolved of all your sins. She will delight in learning to make a variety of dishes, and we’ve got classes that teaching anything from local fare to international cuisines. Life’s a feast offers such varieties: from making Italian pastas and sauces, touring and learning the secrets of the legendary Noosa cuisine, and cooking up healthy Paleo meals as well.

If you think your mum could be the next top chef, then she might use an advanced class or two. Vanilla Zulu hosts master classes on both sweet and savoury dishes.
