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. 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 it should arrive within 3-5 business days. 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.

Need fun things to do at home? Try the Japanese art of shibori dyeing!

In this live streaming workshop, you will learn how to create and maintain an Indigo dyeing vat, fibre preparation, safety and more.

Working with traditional Japanese shibori techniques I will show you how to create unique and interesting designs on fabric.

You will want to dedicate some time after the class to experimenting. Once you start it's very hard not to dye everything blue! ;)

Extra indigo kits and other items can be added to your order.

Easy to understand. Practical tuition. Good value for money And FUN. The one vat that we conjured ( that’s what it feels like) will last many more sessions. Thankyou!

Nichola had the tutorial down pat! Her instructions were very clear, concise and comprehensive. She covered a lot of ground in a very efficient way. I now feel very confident to put the techniques into practice.

Excellent online class by Natalia. The structure of class easy to follow and the different camera angles helped to fully see what was required to complete the class. I found the box of supplies were generous and well labelled so it was easy to find exactly what you needed to complete the dyeing process on your own. Thank so much. I will be happy to do other classes with you. Bev
