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 streaming workshop, you will learn how to prepare, make and pour your own soy candles using eco friendly natural ingredients, and how to do so safely. 

We will show you the step by step process and how to add oils at the correct temperature to scent your candles.

We'll begin with a thorough explanation of the equipment and materials required and where to buy them so you can confidently set up at home and continue making beautiful eco candles.

Then we’ll move on to a detailed demonstration.

The kit sent was beautifully presented and the class was great and informative. I'm glad that a handout was also given so that I can use for more in future- I'm definitely going to be making more now I know how!

From ordering to delivery everything was smooth sailing. The session with Nicole was excellent and the ability to ask questions along the way was very helpful. An awesome Saturday afternoon in. Thank you!

She was very patient and calm. And she had cameras on different angles so it was easy to follow instructions. I really enjoyed the class.

This class was great. The teacher was concise and clear and tried to engage the class well. The recommendations on where to buy things as well as having the written instructions and the recording provided is an amazing help when attempting this after the class.
The only downside is the colour i received for my candle was a Barbie Pink which is not very nice. I do understand this is just personal taste and luck though.

Thank you.

We decided to have a candle making class as a social activity to do with our clients as we cannot visit them due to COVID-19 restrictions. Due to Australia Post delays, we needed to allow about two weeks for the craft boxes to be delivered interstate but Nichola was accommodating in moving the class time for us.

A very clear and enjoyable way to learn! I'd definitely do it again! xx

Laura Thomas • May 2020


This class was fantastic. Nichola was so kind and was a great teacher. We had an issue with Australia Post getting the package in time, and I didn't get it before my class, but Nichola was so accommodating with changing the date at the last minute and letting me collect the package. Thanks;;

It was good, just unfortunate that the video kept freezing. It would have been a great class. I still managed to finish my candle and it was successful so I say, great class! The box came on time (given the circumstances) and was perfect.

Thank you!
