This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, 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 kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

This private live streaming class will teach you all you need to know about your own sewing machine from the comfort of your home.

In this live online class, you will learn how to set up your sewing machine, wind the bobbin and thread the machine. Your teacher will guide you through every step. Once you have had a practice run, you will put your skills to use by making a simple cushion cover.

Upon purchasing this class, a parcel with a pattern, fabric and thread will be sent to you for the session.

You will learn how to use your machine, wind the bobbin, thread the machine and sew straight lines. Your teacher will guide you through how to set up your machine properly and get into good habits from the beginning.

At the end of this live session, you will have a brand new cushion cover and will be able to keep busy with your sewing machine at home. No more 'what to do when you're bored' questions!

Our story began in 2018 in a small studio inside 107 Projects on Redfern St. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and a lovely lady booked in. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life.

In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy.

Our Classes bring people together, often in a circle around a table, whether it's for a sewing class, jewellery making or crafting, there's something special about being creative in a group together.

Sophie was very easy going and patient. I really loved the class and got a lot of new information to start me on my sewing journey. Thanks Sophie!

Sophie was a great teacher! She explained things thoroughly and I never felt rushed. She didn't over complicate things and by the end of it, I felt a lot more confident using my sewing machine. I was impressed by my finished cushion and was surprised I was able to create something so good in such a short period of time.
