Fun Things to do This Weekend - Sydney

Fun things to do in Sydney > Fun Things to do This Weekend - Sydney

Most of us spend the entire working week counting down the days until the weekend arrives — two whole days of doing whatever you want, whenever you want. But in a city as big as Sydney, where does one even start looking for local things to do? What to do this weekend?

Classbento, that’s where. Classbento offers a diverse range of creative, hands-on workshops all over Sydney — from Balmain to Bundeena. Skip that next Netflix session and sign up to learn a brand-new skill in a fun and supportive environment, just minutes from your doorstep. We’re talking everything from terrarium building classes right through to photography lessons.
If your weekends usually consist of a beverage or two, why not shake things up a bit and learn how to make a mean margarita or martini at a cocktail workshop? 

After some ‘cheap and cheerful’ activities? You’re in luck. Classbento’s workshops start from as little as $15 per person — all you have to do is decide which one to do first!

We also have lots of classes that may be available this weekend, on Request.

When the weekend finally rolls around, Classbento has a huge selection of activities and experiences just waiting for you to sign up to — whether you’re riding solo or you’re planning on bringing a buddy.

Here are three super fun things that you can do in Sydney this weekend, courtesy of Classbento:

1.     A cooking class: Whether you’re learning to roll sushi or temper your own chocolate, a cooking class is the perfect weekend activity. It also happens to be an ideal setting for a romantic date, if that’s what you’re after. Plus, you get to eat everything that you make — yum!

2.     Paint like a professional (or at least try to!): A painting lesson is a fantastic way to relax, unwind and get those creative juices flowing after a hard week at work. Enjoy time away from your phone and computer screens and create a masterpiece.

3.     Flower arranging: A flower arranging workshop will allow you to get back in touch with nature and create something truly beautiful for yourself or a loved one to enjoy, whether you try your hand at making a flower crown or an elegant bouquet.

We all know that the struggle for that magical work-life balance is real — we are working longer and harder than ever before and our stress levels are through the roof. So when it comes to the weekend, taking time out to focus on yourself and what you really enjoy doing is crucial. That's why Classbento has carefully curated a range of creative workshops that are not only fun but are also mentally stimulating and re-energising.

By attending a Classbento workshop, you will be supporting a local small business or artist, and one dollar from every Classbento workshop booking gets donated to Dementia Australia — so you’ll be doing yourself and others a big favour. Talk about spreading the love!

Classbento workshops also make really great gifts — either book a specific workshop or simply buy a voucher. Classbento will send out a lovely little gift card or you can get the voucher emailed to you as a nice, easy-to-print PDF (perfect for those last-minute purchases!).

Don’t forget to snap some photos of you having a ball at your Classbento workshop (pics or it didn’t happen, right?) and be sure to tag @classbento on Instagram and Facebook!

You can find out more about Classbento and all the fantastic weekend workshops that they have on offer in Sydney here.
