ClassBento also offers some of the most diverse flower workshops in the country. Learning how to make kokedama is a time-honoured skill in Japan, and ClassBento has a kokedama workshop perfect for just that!

Meditative, calming and aesthetically beautiful, our kokedama classes are some of the most unique horticulture courses available!

Learning how to grow your own herbs and how to look after succulents are just some of the benefits of our gardening classes.

With garden workshops in vegetable growing, succulent survival tips, and even foraging for edible plants and herbs, ClassBento’s range of gardening classes is as varied as your garden itself!
Health benefits to flowers and plants classes
Not only is it mentally beneficial to learn a new skill, working with plants and flowers has actually been found to boost your mental health, endorphin production and your immune system! Working with plants has actually been found to increase productivity and creativity! When humans are deprived of a green space, rates of depression and stress skyrocket, and tending to your own garden or indoor plants is a fantastic way to stay connected with nature, and reduce your risk of succumbing to stress.
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.
