Teacher testimonials


play_circle_filled



" 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 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."
"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."
"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 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) will be published on our website.

If you have classes already listed on another website, we can automatically pull them over and keep them in sync - just get in touch.

2

Get student bookings

List specific dates for your class

- and/or -

Indicate times when you're generally available, for students to request from. You can accept or decline each request. This is a great way to get private group bookings.

3

Teach and earn

We'll pay you the next business day after each class.

We only earn when you earn. 15% of your listing price is all we take (you keep the other 85%, 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 students.

Need a venue?

You choose where you teach. Use your own venue, use a public venue like a cafe or park, or even travel to students.

If you need a venue, we've found lots of workshop-friendly spaces for you to choose from.

We've even got some venues you can use free of charge (pending our review of your class).
