Sydney always has so much on offer; we don’t even know where to begin! This week we have found five awesome things to do in Sydney that involve a lot of drinking, eating, watching and shopping—all the things we love!
Extreme Knitting Workshops With Jacqueline Fink
Wool is one of Australia’s finest textiles, producing almost 90% of the world’s wool. This is why this week we are celebrating Wool Week! In honour of this fine textile, Jacqueline Fink of Little Dandelion is offering two free workshops in extreme knitting. She gave up her lawyer career for the yarn and is known for working with over-sized wool to create and design absolute masterpieces. Fink ensures that each of her pieces is one of a kind. To RSVP for one of her classes, head here.
