Raeleen Kaesehagen to discover the amazing range of classes and activities available right here on the Sunshine Coast and how it’s revolutionising the humble workshop. From learning the basics of barista training, watercolour artistry, pottery, or how to decorate cupcakes like a pro, tapping into the skills offered at local classes have not only broadened my horizons, they re-instilled the thirst for learning I thought I had lost. [caption id="attachment_16148" align="aligncenter" width="385"] Raeleen Kaesehagen[/caption] Raeleen Kaesehagen is a mum of two, who understands the benefit of coming together as a community to learn – whether it be through a light-hearted and fun activity, or something designed to equip you with skills to further your career or even start a new one! Drawing on her background in IT, Raeleen founded mudputty.com in January, an online community of classes, workshops and activities for women, men and children of all ages and interests, including outdoor and adventure, technology, health and wellness, food and drink, language and culture, entertainment and business. “We chose the name mudputty as a reminder to be playful and do the things we love. As children, play came naturally to us. We did what we loved without question, for the pure pleasure of it. We’d play with mud and make putty because it was fun and felt good,” says Raeleen.
“mudputty is about giving ourselves permission to follow our passions – to listen to the child within us who wants to play, or pursue a lifelong dream – it’s guaranteed to bring joy to your life.”Booking into your favourite class couldn’t be easier and can be done at your convenience; maybe you’re on your lunch break at work and book into a cooking class; the kids are finally in bed and you have time to look for a dance class; or you have the sudden urge to learn French – trouver une classe. Using mudputty’s online search, it is easy to find and book your favourite activity, pay online and view your scheduled classes, you can even contact your host if you have any questions about the class. The benefit and ease of mudputty also extends to people hosting classes, who no longer need to worry about the marketing or administration involved in running community classes, and are left to do what they do best.
“mudputty is business in a box, we look after marketing, payment, bookings, list of attendees, reminders, it’s all there, all they need to do is rock up,” says Raeleen. “We’re trying to make it easier for people to follow their passions. There are many mums who want to work from home and people of all ages looking to supplement their income. We all have skills in an area we are passionate about, so classes are a great way to do that.”To join in the fun, whether you’re wanting to sign up for an activity or register your own class, visit mudputty.com.
