Top 10 Workshops to do in Vancouver
I can’t believe spring break is just around the corner. I’m still processing how the world ran out of toilet paper last March. Just because we can’t travel right now, doesn’t mean spring break has to be boring. There are still a ton of fun activities happening in your neighborhoods that could some-what satisfy your travel bug. Here’s 10 workshops you could do in Vancouver.
Calling all pasta-lovers, this one for you. These Italian cooking class experiences are different from the others out there, you'll learn all about Italian cooking, its history and family traditions. Taught by Peter, a food and wine connoisseur, he’ll share his secrets on how to make the perfect bowl of pasta. All the ingredients and equipment are supplied and taste testing is must! Their classes and events fill up months in advance, so book now before they sell out.
After making and eating all that pasta goodness, it’s definitely time to eat some dessert. So head on over to The Good Chocolatier for a chocolate making class. Here, you’ll experience all the steps of how to turn cocoa beans into chocolate. At the end, you get to keep not only one but two bars of chocolate! Now that’s something I would sign up for.
I don’t know about you guys, but after that iconic scene from Ghost, trying out pottery has always been on top of my list. If you are on the same boat as me, check out Claymates! They offer wheel classes and hand building classes for all levels. Their classes are taught by two amazing women, Averee and Emily, to help you sculpt your ceramics.
Imagine how awesome it would be to create your own fashion line. But before you bring your designs to life, you have to learn how to sew. In this two-week sewing bootcamp, you’ll learn all about the basics around drafting, sourcing fabrics and creating samples.

DIY projects are all the hype now. Soigne has over 30 classes from diy facial scrubs to diy candle making. It’s actually quite easy to create and design your own candles.
