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 it should arrive within 2 to 4 business days for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra; 4 to 9 days elsewhere. 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 - smartphone, tablet or laptop. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

The live streaming workshop provides a great platform for anyone to get creative and explore the endless possibilities using clay, resulting in a gorgeous hand made coffee/tea/hot chocolate mug.

With the assistance of our experienced teacher, you will learn how to make a coffee mug and decorate it by stamping pieces foraged from around your house and garden into the clay!

It's fun, educational and most importantly it gives you a great opportunity to express yourself. The great thing is after the class you will have enough clay and the skills to make a second mug or item.

Once the class is over your mug will be created but not quite complete!

The next step is to dry them for approximately three days or until they are no longer cold to touch. Then you can bring them to our Pottery Studio in Mordialloc for firing *If you are not local google your local pottery and ring them to book in and use their firing service. Firing cost is usually around $9 a kilo per firing.

In your box, you will get two brush on glazes which can be applied only after the first bisque firing has been done. This will be covered in the class.
