Teacher testimonials

"I am one of the teachers working with ClassBento and I can say that I absolutely love the platform! It is SO easy to use, set up your classes, and sell the tickets. If you are ever stuck with anything, Iain and John are there to help you out! Couldn't recommend them more. Earlier last month, I had the opportunity to showcase on Today Tonight Show what brush lettering is all about and how it helps you unwind and relax after a long, busy and stressful day of work or life hustles. This opportunity wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for @classbento."
"ClassBento has been a game changer for our business. Their website is super easy for teachers to use, their customer support is second to none, and the enquiries and bookings that come through the site has boosted our business significantly. We love ClassBento!"
"I feel so so so grateful, that I can't even put into words what I'm feeling right now, after realising that I have almost ran 50 workshops this year, in person, online, for Google, for carers in Victoria etc. I am honestly flooded in gratitude right now. I could have never imagined achieving something like this, so thank you for everything that you have created for me to experience this feeling of achievement, fulfilment and gratitude. I had the opportunity to have a chat today with one of the Victorian carers before our class started. She shared with me that she is full-time caring for her husband that has Alzheimer’s, and that this year has been really hard for them, but that taking these moments for herself gives her life and helps her to cope with the difficult times. I just wanted to cry, understanding that this that I do, and what YOU all do, matters. On a not so side note, I could share and celebrate with the team something very exciting that I would also like to share with you: I am leaving my day job. So thank you John and all ClassBento team for being part of my journey."
"I run Arts & Crafts workshops in Sydney which I list on the ClassBento website. When I started my business most of my workshops were filled by family & friends and it was really challenging to connect with real customers. A key turning point for my business was when I partnered with Class Bento, most of my workshop bookings now come from them and now I have classes filled with the most wonderful strangers willing to learn and participate and keep arts and crafts alive. I love working with ClassBento, they feel like an extension of my business and they are so easy to work with and always willing to help. I chose to partner with ClassBento because they believe, like I do that engaging in creative activities helps keep you in the moment and promotes good mental health."

"ClassBento has been wonderful to work with. Highly professional, efficient, always on top of the ball! Highly recommend to everyone! Yegana"
"Classbento has been wonderful to work with! I started teaching on Classbento this year and I had been very fortunate to share my passion for flowers with so many other people coming to my workshops. It is very easy to use and it takes away all of admin burden so I can focus on designing and teaching workshops. It also helps promote my business and build online presence through going on a live program in Today TV show and social media. Classbento's founders and staff are true believers in helping artisan's businesses and making social impact, I am personally touched by their attitudes and their passion."
"Last year I was teaching Zentangle and also teaching cooking at a boys Prep school. I realised I need to reduce the amount of stress in my life. It broke my heart but I “retired” from my job at the Prep school because, even though I loved it, it had become stressful and exhausting. I decided to concentrate more on teaching Zentangle because it is so beautiful and relaxing and I usually get as much energy back from the class as I give out. I had already started building my class profile with you before Covid-19, but hadn’t hit “go” yet. As soon as I saw you were doing the online and craft box format I took a deep breath and jumped in. I haven’t looked back! I am loving meeting new students from all over the country (and even the world). I am busier than ever but not stressed because of the fantastic platform that you have built and the wonderful staff that make it all work. I have encouraged several friends to sign up as Teachers with you and many more people to take a class. Thank you again for everything."
"Been with these guys as a teacher for some time now. They’re super responsive and very helpful. I love the idea of the website itself. Would be keen to try some classes myself. Keep on shining"
"ClassBento is a wonderful platform for both students and teachers. A great support for people to locate and book many creative avenues to open your creativity. I am a teacher whose class is on the ClassBento site and I enjoy working with the creators Iain and John who have brought this opportunity to others. They are a very supportive team. I love working with the students that come to my classes. It is rewarding in unexpected ways. The joy of being together. It is beautiful to engage with others and allow creativity to open. I highly recommend ClassBento and the classes they provide."
"Just wanted to let you know that we've had some lovely feedback that we wanted to pass on to you from our students over this weekend about ClassBento as a platform. I asked a few of my classes how they find the process of booking and the communication before class - every student said that they found it intuitive, clear and easy to navigate. As far as I'm concerned, this is a real testament to you as a team. Well done making something great!"
"We love the platform and are very happy with our decision to use it."
"I would give ClassBento 5 stars as they are super efficient and switched on"
"Amazing company to work with! Great people that help my business grow."

What we're about

ClassBento founders


ClassBento's co-founders, John and Iain (pictured), are passionate about:

Promoting better mental health: Creative classes are a great way to achieve mindfulness in today's "always-on" society - we can use this (along with ClassBento's donations to Dementia Australia with every booking) to fight dementia and burnout.

Promoting the arts: Our communities have many hidden talents, just waiting to be discovered. Our arts and crafts should be fun to engage with, accessible, and affordable, not just locked up in galleries. Creative workshops are a great way to make this happen.


We'd love to have you join our mission.


It's easy to get started

1

Sign up online

Create a profile, then list a class or kit (or more). It won't take you more than 10 minutes.

We'll review to ensure that you meet our quality standards, then your class(es) / kit(s) will be published on our website.

If you have lots of listings already on another website, we can automatically pull them over and keep them synced - just get in touch.

2

Get bookings

For kits, use your own courier or ours. With our courier, all your shipping labels and tracking will be automatically created and managed.

For classes, list specific dates and/or indicate times when you're generally available, for customers to request from.

3

Teach and earn

You'll be paid automatically, once your customer has experienced your service. Specifically: the next business day after each class; 7 days after the order for pre-recorded videos; and 14 days after the order, for kits (without an accompanying class).

We only earn when you earn. 20% of your listing price is all we take (you keep the other 80%, and we'll take a lower commission rate if we process bookings that come from your website). No other fees apply, ever.

We use our commission to advertise your class, cover payment processing and donation costs, and to continue to improve our website features for teachers and customers.
