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 3-5 working days. 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.

If you're desperately in need of fun things to do at home, why not try your hand at pottery? Creating ceramics with clay hand building techniques is not only fun but very therapeutic. Plus, you will have your own beautiful ceramic to show for it!

In this live online class, we will focus on hand-building pottery techniques. I will do a step by step demonstration and by the end of the session, you will have made your own mug, bowl or small planter.

Please note: Your piece will not be complete at the end of the session as it will need to be fired.

The piece will need to be fired by a pottery studio who has a kiln. Local Sydney students can drop off their pieces in a contactless drop off area to my studio in Botany. I will fire the piece over two firings: a bisque fire, to remove all moisture and then I will then glaze the piece in a natural white glaze before a final firing.

The firing process will take two to three weeks. You can either pick up your final piece or can pay for additional freight to be shipped back to the your home.
