One of Canberra’s biggest strengths is its size, and engaging with the local community doesn’t get much easier than through the local arts scene. Although delving into a new hobby or artistic discipline can feel daunting, ClassBento’s workshops are designed for beginners. Our incredible artisans and instructors pride themselves on creating welcoming and inclusive environments for you to learn in, regardless of your skill level and experience. Constructing handmade jewelry may seem like a daunting task if you’ve never done it before, but our jewelry making workshops can show you how to build beautiful wearable art even if you have no experience. After something to warm you up on a cold Canberra day? Glassblowing won’t just show you how to build amazing glassware and glass ornaments from scratch, but with the melting temperature of glass being 4000 degrees, you’ll be in the toastiest craft studio in Canberra.
With a collection of casual classes and three-day intensive workshops, you can learn at your own pace. ClassBento offers a range of Canberra workshops that are exceptionally flexible with your time and your budget. Chasing down a private workshop for you and your friends? Maybe you’re looking to join a public session and learn the basics of wheel throwing pottery?
ClassBento’s workshops can cater for any occasion and schedule. Many of our instructors also offer mobile workshops, so you can engage with local artisans in your own home. Regardless of where in Canberra you are or how packed your schedule is, ClassBento has craft classes and workshops that work around what you’re looking for.
Learning how to sew isn’t difficult, but it can be made considerably easier and more enjoyable with some expert guidance. Whether you’re hunting down how to stitch, weaving for kids or learning how to do macrame, ClassBento’s Canberra workshops have your textile crafts covered. Discovering embroidery classes isn’t just good for the soul, but it’ll save you money in the long run. Our sashiko mending classes can show you how to give old and damaged garments a new lease on life. Our embroidery workshops can help you freshen up older items of clothing with a personal touch. Whatever you choose, ClassBento’s textile classes are one of the best things to do in Canberra if you’re looking for a craft that’s both creative and practical.
Learning how to blow glass is an incredible skill. One of the oldest crafts in the history of the world, glassblowing has a certain mystique around it. Working with extremely high temperatures and heavy-duty crafting equipment is an exciting detour from the traditional notions of what a craft class is. With an expanding list of glassblowing and mosaic classes in Canberra, this is one of the best craft classes if you’re looking for a challenging and exciting hobby you can really sink your teeth into.
Woodworking classes are too much fun to not be open to everyone of all ages and interests! Discover how to put the finishing touches on your DIY wood projects or learn how to create woodworking pieces from scratch in our growing range of woodworking classes in Canberra. Regardless of your experience, our woodworking classes are ideal for anyone interested in discovering what it takes to master the art of working with wood.
Learning how to craft handmade jewelry may seem like a daunting task, but our experienced instructors can show you how to build beautiful DIY jewelry with one of the most unique experiences Canberra has to offer. Not only will you be shown how to craft polymer clay jewelry, handmade earrings, or even how to make a ring in a silversmith course, you’ll find that inner jeweller and learn how to inject your own personality into your handmade pieces.
Pottery classes are not just one of ClassBento’s most popular Canberra workshops, but also one of the most requested craft classes all over Australia. This isn’t for nothing, either. Learning how to wheel throw or discovering incredible hand building pottery techniques is an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding process. Transforming a pile of wet clay into a magnificent vase is an experience that is fulfilling and satisfying, and can also be a beautiful addition to any home. Our pottery classes are some of the best things to do in Canberra if you’re chasing a fulfilling and rewarding craft experience.
Discovering paper craft classes is a fantastic opportunity to not just learn calligraphy or collage art, but to also disconnect and unplug from the world. Craft classes that can teach you how to do origami or master brush lettering are activities that promote mindful movement meditation and can play an incredibly important role in lowering stress and promoting good mental health. Not only this, but craft classes such as decoupage workshops and collage art are wonderful tools to learn if you’re already exploring your artistic side.
Learning a new craft does so much more than just offering a new hobby. Engaging in activities that require fine motor skills as well as problem solving opens up new neural pathways in the brain and promotes the production of white matter. This can help you fight off degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Craft classes are often used by medical professionals as art therapy, and can help reduces high blood pressure and stress, thereby lowering your chances of a heart attack and other stress-related illnesses.
Want to learn or experience something specific? You can easily contact our teachers and arrange a custom workshop at your preferred time and to suit your skill level.
If you’re looking for a unique and memorable event these workshops are perfect things to do with friends on the weekend, for aged care groups, team building exercises, indoor things to do, and kids weekend activities. We've got a range of teachers who cater specifically to larger events, and we can customise classes to meet your needs. Get in touch today and we'll put something together for you.
