Little Ginger Studio is a Children’s Art Space focused on exploring big, messy creativity with kids of all ages. Our new Randwick studio opened in January - come see what we're making!

We offer process art classes for littlies as well as drop off preschool art classes. For Primary we have exciting after school classes, full day care on the school holidays, birthday parties and even a drop in Kids Creative Club on Saturday mornings. We also run after school programs at Maroubra Junction PS and Randwick PS.

At Little Ginger Studio we love nothing better than exploring new materials, turning recyclables into Art & making a bit of a mess along the way. (Use your Creative Kids voucher with us and save $100!)

Loving my sewing workshops! I'm onto my 2nd session and intending to carry on. Penny is a great teacher: patient and clear in her instructions. I'd had my machine for 15 years but each time I went to use it, it just took me so long to set it up. I now feel confident using my machine, and with Penny's guidance, I've made a cushion, a change mat and an apron.

Great beginner's class. Suited my 9,10 and 12 year old. Would have been better if it lasted longer so it could be less rushed. All three kids were delighted to come away with what they made.

Thanks so much for this feedback. I'm so glad your kids enjoyed the experience. We are still fine-tuning our sewing workshops and agree it would have been great to have a bit more time to get creative!
