1 hour Class size 10     label $65


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 you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. 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.

Fairy gardens are even more fun than a doll's house! Whether you believe in fairies or not, a fairy garden is a must for the bottom of your garden or flat balcony. If there are goblins, fairies or unicorns about this will definitely attract them. This fantasy world is a great escape for you and your kids if you're struggling with what to do when you're bored.

Bring along some seeds or seedlings such as violas, pansies, alyssum, lobelia, nasturtiums to plant or succulents as they are very easy to grow and it's now the perfect time of year.

In this live online class, you will:

  • Learn how to grow plants, make a peg doll fairy, build teeny models and make use of found objects as well as plant a living garden with grass seeds,
  • Learn to make fairy peg dolls with a unique personality.
  • Make little props and models.
  • Learn how to set up a drainage system.

At the end of this live online class, your kids will have a wonderful world to escape to when they've had enough of other things to do at home! This is also a perfect activity for a virtual kids birthday party to catch up as a group. We have some dinosaurs as well on request.

Please note if you are outside NSW we cannot send organic matter such as seeds and soil over the NSW border for biosecurity reasons. In this case we will send you extra crafting materials as a replacement and encourage you to bring 4 cups of soil and a couple of small plants (see suggested plants above.)

I have had the best life ever, following my passions. I have worked as a script editor and writer and been a course leader and senior lecturer in the UK in film and TV and before that I was an illustrator and artist.

For the last 5 years have become increasingly interested in informal learning. I run classes around Sydney in different venues and concentrate on my passion of growing succulents, art and the art of teaching. I go by the name classbunny.
