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. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

In this live streaming workshop, you will learn how to make your own blend of incense cones and smudge sticks using natural ingredients.

A fun and easy way to pass an afternoon. Loved foraging in my backyard and pantry for ingredients.

I had a great time learning how to make incense and smudge sticks. The class was small, so I had every chance to have my questions answered. Looking forward to perfecting my cone making and making gifts for friends
