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 it should arrive within 3-5 business days. 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.

There's never been a better time to build your own succulent garden... out of polymer clay! Your little garden will require no care and is one of the best indoor activities you can try at home.

In this live streaming workshop, I will show you the steps and demonstrate how to make different types of succulents with polymer clay. You will have enough clay to make 8-10 mini plants. Once you've moulded your own succulents just bake them in the oven and your mini-garden will be ready for display.

All the materials you'll need will be provided in the box! If you're looking for fun things to do this weekend come and create with me :)

I've been drawing since when I was a kid, I picked up watercolour as I really like the visuals you can achieve with that medium.

I taught some art workshops while I was in uni, and later continued it part-time. But I was passionate enough that I switched over to do this full time.

I draw in my diaries as a creative way to record my daily life and memories.

I particularly love drawing food (I just love food too much) and still life.

I find watercolour painting to be a very therapeutic hobby.

Hope to see you at one of my future classes!

We had so much fun making the miniature succulents, and will definitely be making more. Thanks for teaching us the techniques!

Blair is a great teacher, and I had a lot of fun playing with the polymer clay. We went through how to make one of these little sculptures step-by-step, and then the techniques required to achieve succulents of all shapes and colour effects. Highly recommended!

Had a great time in this workshop making mini succulents with a good friend in Melbourne (I’m in Sydney). Blair posted everything we needed for the workshop and demonstrated the techniques while we followed step by step.

Enjoyed the class however would like it a little longer to learn the finer details, it was a little rushed at the end.

Rachel Smiles Jan 2021


Absolutely brilliant class! From the perfectly packaged supplies to Blair's wonderful demonstration on how to create these gorgeous clay succulents, it was brilliant from start to finish. I especially enjoyed that not only did you learn how to make the project, but you also are left with enough supplies to make your own in your own time.

I really really loved this class. The teacher was so good and it was so helpful - she explained things really clearly and having it on zoom made it so easy to follow: Would highly recommend. My 13 yr old friend also loved it - so it’s great for adults and kids!

This was a great class. Well explained, clear instructions and all materials needed to complete the miniature succulents. I enjoyed doing this class via zoom with my daughter also attending. After the class we face timed and made more succulents together. Lovely morning and afternoon.

A relaxing and creative experience! If your a beginner like myself or intermediate and what to improve you skills, I highly recommend going to her workshop! :)

This online class was so fun. The box of supplies came quickly and had almost everything I needed for the course, just needed some basic household items (spoon and cling film) that I already had. Blair was a wonderful teacher, she did a great job explaining and showing details on the camera. The kit came with enough materials to make at least 9 small succulents pots (for my first one I made a small garden with three plants). I’m planning to turn mine into magnets and brooches. I highly recommend this class! Would make a great gift, too.
