learn, create, grow
The Classroom in the Hawthorn East Studio of SARAH CONNERS is a place to learn and grow, a place where designers, stylists and creators come together to share their skills, passion and years of experience with people that want to see where their own creativity can take them.
There is an ever-changing roster of classes and workshops at The Classroom. Current classes include textile and surface design from Emily Wills at Surface 1º22 Design, accessory design and making with Sarah Conners and styling workshops with some of Melbourne’s leading personal stylists.
