Birthday ideas (Sydney)

Celebrate a birthday (or any occasion really) with a Classbento workshop. Our creative classes are unique, fun, and and memorable, and, in our humble opinion, make for some of the best birthday party ideas in Sydney. 

Our teachers are super flexible. They can run a private class for you (at your venue, or theirs), and you're welcome to bring food/drink and to mingle before, during and after the class. Our teachers are great with people and will keep your group engaged. They can also usually adjust the class to meet your budget requirements if you ask, and can cater to pretty much any number of guests.

You won't need any previous experience with the craft at hand, and everything is provided, so all you need to do is bring your friends and/or family and enjoy!

In our craft classes you'll often get to take away what you make, whether it's a fragrance, some macarons, a terrarium, or something in between - a nice way to remember the great time you had.

We offer birthday parties for kids and teens too.

We make organising events easy, fast and stress-free. Feel free to book into a class yourself, or just contact us if you'd like some help.

 

And if you'd like some more inspiration, think about the type of mood and atmosphere you'd like at the party, and check out our suggestions below:

 

Relaxing birthday ideas

Want a chilled out, serene and calm get-together? Perfect for introverts or for those who just need a break from a hectic lifestyle.

Try a meditation plus abstract art class, where you'll first clear your mind, before unleashing your inner creativity. Or nurture gardens and get closer to nature, with a flower arranging or terrarium making class.

 

Unique birthday ideas

Want a one-of-a-kind, unusual and different experience, that you and your guests will always remember? A birthday is a special day after all, where you're celebrating a transition into a new era of life, so why not mark this occasion with a novel and even surprising event?

Some ideas are: Make your own Kokedama (Japanese moss balls), create art (as well as serving boards) with resin, or try screen printing or Shibori dyeing

 

Easy birthday ideas

Maybe you're looking to play it safe, and to have an event that's fun and sure to please. Try a cocktail making class (mocktail options also available), or a tea and chocolate or tea and cheese pairing workshop.

 

Indulgent birthday ideas

Let your senses take over. A fragrance-based class like candle or soap making, or perfume making, will give guests a great way to remember the occasion - our sense of smell is tightly linked to our memory. Or try a dessert watercolour class, where you can draw your cake and eat it too.

Candle Making Workshop


Amazing, Tara is absolutely amazing! The atmosphere was perfect and the way Tara described everything was just perfect. I will be hosting my birthday party here!

Wedding Flower Bouquet Workshop


Nikki was amazing. I emailed her to book a class for myself and my mum as a birthday surprise for her. My mum has a disability and I asked Nikki some questions about how accessible her place was for someone with mobility limitations. She responded almost instantly and was really helpful. We went along to the class today and we both had a great time. I made a bridal bouquet and Mum made a table arrangement. Both of which were beautiful. Nikki even asked me before hand what flowers my mum likes so she could have them available for us. This was by far one my mums favourite birthday in a really long time. I highly recommend Nikki. Thank you again for a really great day.

Ikebana Flower Arranging Class


Beautiful class learning about traditional Japanese flower arranging! I got this for my mum for her birthday and we both loved it, it was such a nice and creative way to spend time together and the flowers we used were stunning. Setsuko has such a wonderful spirit and is a great teacher.

Glass Blowing Taster Session


We booked a private lesson as a 60th birthday present. All 4 of us, different age groups (from 30s-60s) had a wonderful time. We each took home over 4 pieces that we had made.
The class was fun but also informative.
After our lesson we had lunch then came back 45mins later to collect our pieces.
The venue was only 5mins from the train station and very easy to find.

Manga Drawing Class


We booked a 1 hour comic class at our house for my child's 9th birthday. The teacher Dajana communicated well with me before the day, agreed to the lesson content, arrived early to set up, bringing an extra tablet screen with her so that all the kids would be able to see what she was doing, and gave us 1.5 hours of her time with the kids. She was very patient with them all. They had a fantastic time learning how to draw manga faces and then robots. My only feedback would be for kids this young, and for a group with > 5 kids, consider using pre-prepared templates for the face shapes as well, as trying to teach 7 kids how to draw the face shape was a bit tricky and took a while. Thank you for a very fun class!

Succulent Terrarium Making Class

Hula Hoop Classes for Kids


Thank you Shiho for such a memorable birthday. The children (aged 3-6) had a lot of fun hooping and performing circus tricks. The parents have all said their child couldn’t stop talking about how much fun they had at the party.

Mobile Kokedama Workshop


I bought the kokedama class for my mum as a surprise birthday present. Fionna is a great teacher - clear, helpful and engaging. She had plenty of supplies and we made two kokedamas each. Mum loved that everything was supplied, she really enjoyed doing something different and she loves the kokedamas she made. Thanks for a great afternoon Fionna!

Shake Cocktails with Australian Native Plants


I took my mate here for her birthday and we had an absolute blast.

Would highly recommend for any occasion, the venue is super quirky and a great place to make and sip on cocktails.

Succulent Terrarium Making Class


Our group had such a fun session. It was a fantastic way to kick off a birthday celebration for my cousin and I. Chris is very knowledgeable on the plants and on-going care and the venue is lovely. We are all very happy with the final result of our terrariums!
Didn't stop chatting and laughing the whole time.

Recommend for a fun family/hen's/birthday activity.

Three friends and I attended the terrarium class for my birthday last Saturday morning. The setup was personal and intimate being made feel welcome from walking through the door.

Succulent Terrarium Making Class review by Tamara

We have a huge range of classes and activities to make your next event a hit.

Try a classic, like learning to make cocktails, or relaxing with pottery. Or try something a bit different, like block printing or Kokedama making. 

Our experienced teachers cover a huge variety of interests, meaning you can find the perfect one to suit your party.

Hosting an interactive workshop means everyone has a chance to get involved, and you'll give your guests a great new skill to take away with them. 

If you're struggling with venues, we've got plenty that we've worked with before, that are affordable and perfect for special occasions. And if you're looking for something last minute, no worries, our team will get back to you super quickly and try to accommodate you as best we can.
