Our booking engine was built specifically for artisan classes, and offers best-in-class functionality you won't find elsewhere.
We power the bookings for Hobbycraft (Europe's biggest art retailer with 100+ brick and mortar stores), all the way to artists and small businesses who are just starting out.
Teach in person, online and/or sell physical craft kits. If you’re selling kits, you can take advantage of our courier integrations to automatically generate shipping labels and manage tracking
Booking a class is an emotionally-driven decision. Make your class shine and excite your customers, with a beautiful photo and video gallery.
Our widget is easily embedded in your website page(s), and displays and captures bookings for your experiences. Our widget can be easily customised, so that it reflects your branding.
Attract and secure large group booking requests easily, with our market-leading Requests and Invites features, which capture the right info upfront and automates the booking process. Say goodbye to cumbersome contact forms and tiring back-and-forth conversations.
If your dates don’t suit a customer, they can easily add themselves to your class waitlist. They will be automatically emailed as soon as you add new dates with a link to book, ensuring you don’t miss out on these sales. And we'll collect data on their preferences, so you create new sessions at the right times.
Easily reschedule, cancel, refund, and more. You can even let your customers cancel and reschedule themselves (within your policy), saving you even more time
Our automated emails help you to capture 40%+ more reviews compared to other platforms. This will help you build trust and increase your conversion rates.
By default, we'll list your classes on classbento.com.au, our fast-growing marketplace, to deliver you more customers.
Our Aussie support team is available via phone or email, 5 days a week from 9am-5pm to offer you customer and technical support.
No lock in contracts, no monthly fee, no setup fee, no transactional fees.

When I started my business most of my workshops were filled by family & friends and it was really challenging to connect with real customers. A key turning point for my business was when I partnered with Class Bento, most of my workshop bookings now come from them and now I have classes filled with the most wonderful strangers willing to learn and participate and keep arts and crafts alive. I love working with ClassBento, they feel like an extension of my business and they are so easy to work with and always willing to help. I chose to partner with ClassBento because they believe, like I do that engaging in creative activities helps keep you in the moment and promotes good mental health.
I feel so so so grateful, that I can't even put into words what I'm feeling right now, after realising that I have almost ran 50 workshops this year, in person, online, for Google, for carers in Victoria etc. I am honestly flooded in gratitude right now. I had the opportunity to have a chat today with one of the Victorian carers before our class started. She shared with me that this year has been really hard for them, but that taking these moments for herself gives her life and helps her to cope with the difficult times. I just wanted to cry, understanding that this that I do, and what YOU all do, matters.
Classbento has been wonderful to work with! I started teaching on Classbento this year and I had been very fortunate to share my passion for flowers with so many other people coming to my workshops. It is very easy to use and it takes away all of admin burden so I can focus on designing and teaching workshops. It also helps promote my business and build online presence through going on a live program in Today TV show and social media. Classbento's founders and staff are true believers in helping artisan's businesses and making social impact, I am personally touched by their attitudes and their passion.
ClassBento is a wonderful platform for both students and teachers. A great support for people to locate and book many creative avenues to open your creativity. I am a teacher whose class is on the ClassBento site and I enjoy working with the creators Iain and John who have brought this opportunity to others. They are a very supportive team. I love working with the students that come to my classes. It is rewarding in unexpected ways. The joy of being together. It is beautiful to engage with others and allow creativity to open. I highly recommend ClassBento and the classes they provide.
I am one of the teachers working with ClassBento and I can say that I absolutely love the platform! It is SO easy to use, set up your classes, and sell the tickets. If you are ever stuck with anything, Iain and John are there to help you out! Couldn't recommend them more.
Earlier last month, I had the opportunity to showcase on Today Tonight Show what brush lettering is all about and how it helps you unwind and relax after a long, busy and stressful day of work or life hustles.
This opportunity wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for @classbento.
As soon as I saw you were doing the online and craft box format I took a deep breath and jumped in. I haven’t looked back! I am loving meeting new students from all over the country (and even the world). I am busier than ever but not stressed because of the fantastic platform that you have built and the wonderful staff that make it all work. I have encouraged several friends to sign up as Teachers with you and many more people to take a class. Thank you again for everything.
Just wanted to let you know that we've had some lovely feedback that we wanted to pass on to you from our students over this weekend about ClassBento as a platform. I asked a few of my classes how they find the process of booking and the communication before class - every student said that they found it intuitive, clear and easy to navigate. As far as I'm concerned, this is a real testament to you as a team. Well done making something great!
I love the convenience of the platform, the fact I don’t have to chase invoices is great. Also been great to get me more exposure that I might not normally get on my own. As an art teacher in my other life I’ve also recommended to my students to also sign up to share their skills with the world
ClassBento has been a game changer for our business. Their website is super easy for teachers to use, their customer support is second to none, and the enquiries and bookings that come through the site has boosted our business significantly. We love ClassBento!
I LOVE that everything is automated, it makes my life so much easier. Also I find rescheduling when a teacher is sick to be quite easy. When I did have an issue with a troublesome customer I found the advice and support from Kate to be excellent.
I like that ClassBento is Australian owner and run, supporting dementia Australia, easy to use website that keeps getting better, small percentage when booked through my own link, quick responses and very helpful.
Quick and easy to list new dates. Easy to use widgets. Easy to transfer attendees to other dates if they need to move their booking due to illness, etc. Prompt payment at completion of classes.
Been with these guys as a teacher for some time now. They’re super responsive and very helpful. I love the idea of the website itself. Would be keen to try some classes myself. Keep on shining
I like the ease of the scheduling part and receiving updates on workshops, the platform is very user friendly & I receive almost all of my bookings through ClassBento!
Love ClassBento. so much easier to use than Eventbrite where it is difficult to book dates for the workshop and then manage tickets on those dates sold elsewhere.
ClassBento has been wonderful to work with. Highly professional, efficient, always on top of the ball! Highly recommend to everyone! Yegana
