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 you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. 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. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Enjoy some fun mark-making and pattern practising on a gorgeous fair trade coconut shell planter with a natural-toned selection of acrylic paints.

This live online class with Greenhusk Studio is the perfect introduction to meditative painting for anyone wanting to learn how to create beautiful and unique contrasting patterns on coconut. It’s perfect for beginners and you won’t need a very steady hand to achieve a beautiful end result. The creative process is a wonderful antidote to stress and would be a welcome escape to a busy working life or as an at-home art project for children or teens undertaking homeschooling in 2020.

Your teacher will guide you through some fun techniques in working with your acrylic paints and simple, yet striking effects with brushwork.

Your polished coconut planter comes prepped and ready for painting, complete with holes drilled for stringing material (supplied), drainage and waterproofing on the interior to protect the planter from excess moisture.

Also included in your craft box is a lush, green indoor plant pal, ready to home in your new hanging coconut planter! (Note: you’ll receive a plant for each of your coconut planters when selecting the two planter box option).

We look forward to painting with you!

A fun, achievable and interactive activity - I would highly recommend as a work team event if you are unable to be "in person" with your team during COVID

Gina was lovely to work with, she had such a calm energy. We had a great time!

We really loved the class - Gina was great (and very flexible - thanks for the last-minute re-re-arranging!) A good balance between teaching/demonstrating/doing, and the planters are going to look great despite our skill level - highly recommended!
