The heat is well and truly (beating down) upon us, and while there’s no shortage of icy, air-conditioned spaces to flock to in escaping having to bear sweat marks, wouldn’t you rather put your creativity to work while you take a breather from the sweltering outdoors? Bringing together shopping, artistry and a sure dose of R&R for a next-level mall experience, Capitol Piazza’s Summer Beats Mall Party is here to offer respite and reward the right side of your brain with a number of engaging, complimentary workshops.
1. Craft your own cocktails
Fancy yourself a mover-and-shaker? Here’s your chance to shake up a storm with a Equilibrium Modern Italian Bacaro & Ristorante‘s cocktail-making class, led by the bar team behind Equilibrium and Supply & Demand. You’ll learn how to put together a mean ‘Bloody Hipster’ cocktail, complete with candied bacon, as well as put a fresh spin on classics like the Smoky Whisky Sour. The best part? You get to enjoy your creation once you’ve added your finishing touches.

2. Warm up to candle-making
Smells have the ability to take us to magical head-spaces – or drag us in pits of despair. Learn how to do the former with To Be Calm‘s candle-making workshop, while discovering the interplay between fragrances and their respective notes. With over 100 fragrances at your disposal, using high-quality fragrance oils from Australia and natural soy wax from the U.S, you’ll have all the tools you need to create your own unique soy candle that soothes the soul.

4. Get dapper with dressing tips

Beginning by profiling your character and finding the wardrobe personality of best-fit, you’ll learn how to curate a wardrobe of essentials that go from sharp to casual in seconds, as well discover the importance of finding the right fit and other dressing no-nos. Be prepared to elevate your aesthetic to James Bond-level elegance.
