This is a ClassBento LiveBox class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or just enjoy with some like-minded others. As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft box containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

This fun live streaming class is designed to guide you to build imaginary characters, from simple figurines to elaborate SFX sculptures for prosthetics!

In this class, which is suitable for beginners, your teacher will provide you with a character description and your task will be to create a figurine based on a description, with guidance and help, of course. If you have your own idea and wish what to create, that's totally fine and we will adjust a class to that.

During this class, your expert teacher Irina will teach you how to sculpt with polymer clay, how to make a wire armature, choose and shape it into a pose, then make it to be articulated or not and paint to achieve the desired look.

This class is highly imaginative and creative and we will work on both creative and technical parts. Irina will work with you so that you can learn how to treat the materials and will provide a lot of feedback and references to get the point across.

Bookings are limited to five people so that everyone gets the chance to proactively work with Irina on their project. If you are after more elaborate creature sculpting, please get in touch as Irina can create a customised small course for you.

Please note: This class is appropriate for adults and adolescents, but not for children.

Hi, I'm Irina.

I tend to introduce myself as a sculptor, although I'm engaged in many different art disciplines as well. I have never had another profession, nor have I wanted it. I fell in love with three-dimensional art at a very early age which came naturally as I was born in a family of artists. It was the world I've grown up in, a measure of value around me.

I have graduated from Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture, and with a bit of luck, I had a chance to work internationally and gain great experience in different industries and media.

My idea is to try to share the skills, one by one by providing online classes here. From basic modelling in clay to carving wax, casting resin and painting figurines with an airbrush, I hope we can have a lot of fun together. I am also quite thorough and I won't give up till you learn the skill :)
