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 steaming class, you will learn the basics of screen printing including effective set up at home, equipment needed to do this and the best way to translate your design to stencils.

The live online class will begin by talking you through how to set up your space and how to do it affordably. We will also discuss the materials required and where they can be purchased. We will then move on to how to prepare your stencil, showing you examples of what works and what doesn't.

After this your instructor will demonstrate the set up of a screen and the printing process, showing you tips and tricks along the way! There will also be time to ask questions throughout the process.

This workshop 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.

If you're looking for fun indoor activities, this is for you!
