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 2-5 business 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.

In this live online class, you will learn the Japanese art of Katazome.

You will learn how to prepare your fabrics, how to set up an iron indigo vat, how to make and cook a rice paste resist then apply it to your fabric using a hand-cut stencil. Once dry your pieces can then be dyed with indigo and the resist removed from your fabric to reveal your design.

Indigo dye can stain clothing and footwear, so be sure to wear something dark or old!

This class is best watched then practised afterwards so you get the most out of it. A recording of the workshop will be sent afterwards for you to replay and any extra questions you have can be emailed to the instructor.

Kids participating MUST be supervised by an adult. If you're looking for fun indoor activities during self-isolation, this is for you!

Super interesting class, and very grateful that we could do it over zoom and keep our social distance! It is something we never would have picked up otherwise.

Only negative thing is that its a lot more complicated a process than we realised when we signed up. Will take a couple of days to get a finished product. Might be better to tell people to set aside a day, and have the class in the morning so they can spend the rest of the day working on it.

I loved it - It was great to be able to do it at home and have a kit of stuff to be able to continue it in our own time.

I’ll happily share a photo once I’ve had a chance to do it.

Now I’m thinking of signing up for a few more!
