Potions Workshop!

Brew your very own potion in the school holidays!

Our Potions Master will guide you through the intricacies of brewing the perfect magical potion.

Forge magic from age-old ingredients and enchanted spells, just like your wizarding heroes.

All students get to take home their newly-brewed concoction as well as sup the delights of our famously bewitching QBrew.


The Potions Workshop is offered during the school holidays at our stores in Sydney and Canberra. Be careful when you book – it’s a long ride on a broomstick!

The 40-minute workshop is for witches and wizards 6 and over and all those younger than 11 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Every person or creature in attendance will need to purchase a ticket.

The price is $20 per student.

Student numbers are strictly limited so BOOK NOW!

Want to book for a group?

If you want your group to have exclusive use of the potions classroom, you will need to purchase the maximum of ten, remembering that any students 10 or younger have to be accompanied by a paying adult.

The price is $20 per student. There is no discount for groups.

Please note there is no capacity during school holidays to provide a space for party activities like eating cake or opening gifts.

In keeping with our mission to offer FREE activities during school holidays, there will also be themed do-it-yourself quizzes for you to enjoy in-store.
