Some recent reviews for our gifted workshops

Kokedama Workshop


I absolutely loved this class - was a Xmas present for my mum who loved it too! Great location (the florist is beautiful, loads of all day parking and a great cafe next door!), really friendly teachers, small class size. The Kokedama we made and took home are stunning (and worth more than the cost of the class if purchased from a florist!) and it was just SO MUCH FUN! Really really great morning!

Kokedama Workshop


My sister and I bought the kokedama class for my Mum as a present. We all absolutely loved it. The Shop was beautiful with some amazing and different flowers and arrangements. The teachers were so lovely, and really know their stuff. They made the class so fun. All the materials were provided and were of a high quality. Would highly recommend this class. It has inspired me to go back and try some other classes with them!

Ikebana Flower Arranging Class


Teacher was great, venue good, choice of flowers for class was excellent, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, it was also a great birthday present for my daughter who also enjoyed the class and looks forward to more. The teacher was obviously very experienced and we got to take the flowers home and practice what we had learned. The free coffee was a bonus we did not expect. Cannot thank you enough for a lovely morning.

Succulent Terrarium Making Class


This class was brilliant! I was a bit apprehensive about going on my own as it was bought for me as a present, but I needn't have been at all. I had such a good time - it was the perfect outlet to have some chilled out 'me time' as well as getting my creative juices flowing!

The teacher was excellent, really attentive and answered all our newbie questions! The space was very cool and has made my instagram feed look sweet, the materials were really high quality too. Best of all, you get your amazing creation to take home, which has definitely made my apartment look a lot more classy.

Succulent Terrarium Making Class


I absolutely loved this class, I bought it as a surprise birthday gift for a friend and I think it's an experience definitely worth trying.
The workshop/store was very relaxing and intimate. We arrived a little late due to difficulty finding parking, however Chris our teacher patiently waited for everyone to arrive. Chris was very open with answering any questions from the class and we did not feel rushed during the whole process.
I've never made a terrarium before, but this beginner class was fun and easy to follow as we were provided with all the tools needed and tea!
Overall, I would recommend trying this out, and by the end of it you get to take home a beautiful creation of your own!

Ikebana Flower Arranging Class


Loved the class, I bought it as a birthday present for my mum and we both enjoyed it. Setsuko provided feedback so felt like we got a lot out of it and we were able to take the fresh flowers we used home with us.

Make Your Own Fragrance / Perfume Workshop


I got this workshop as a birthday present and I was not let down! Joseph was informative, bubbly and took the class to a new level - a proper teacher makes all the difference and he certainly made the drive from Canberra worth it. The venue was clean, large and workable for what we were doing. The treat of Turkish Delight upon arrival was also appreciated!

Although I didn't purchase this course for myself I still think it was worth the money and would buy it again and would buy it for someone else. I went with another family member but we met some lovely people so I think it is also nice to go solo and meet new people in a friendly environment.

I learnt a lot about the history of fragrance, and what scents go well together and what may be too potent. Not only did I leave knowledgeable but I left with two custom bottles and I now get complimented daily on my creations.

A charming experience which I highly recommend. Thanks Joseph you were fabulous!

Latte Art Workshop


This was a Christmas gift to me from two of my sons who also joined me. We are not barristers or involved in a café but just coffee lovers. Our teacher was Andy Liu. He was great. His knowledge and tips were well received and enjoyed by all. The venue was very good and the 3 hours we had was well spent. Driving home we were talking about what workshop will we do next with Andy.

Fun Juggling Workshop


Stepan was a wonderful teacher. He was friendly, patient, encouraging and a brilliant teacher. It was a lot of fun and (with a bit more practice), I can juggle! It was a perfect birthday present. Totally recommended.

An excellent, informative class. Made for a perfect Birthday gift.
Thanks again!




The real beauty of experiences is that they can’t be replicated. Unlike a pair of shoes, a bouquet of flowers, or that other new item you just had to have, experiences can last a lifetime. Studies show that buying trends are shifting away from goods and commodities and toward authentic and unique experiences gifts. Why? Because shared experiences can enrich lives, strengthen connections and improve mental wellbeing. 

Looking for unique experiences in Sydney? We have lots of unusual (and fun) workshops that you might never have thought of, or even knew existed! There’s birthday experiences like handplane shaping in a Stanmore studio – the best experience gift for anyone who loves splashing around in the waves. If you’re on the hunt for unique housewarming gifts, why not buy a workshop experience gift card and they can spend a few hours designing and creating a lampshade for their new bedroom. Practice Kinstugi, an ancient Japanese technique of gold pottery repair, try Mandala drawing, learn how to make a chocolate drip layer cake or even spend an afternoon at a South American BBQ cooking class. The experience gift ideas available on ClassBento are endless, and there’s new experience presents listed every day. 

The best thing about our unique experience gifts is that they all happen IRL. Located all across Sydney, the teachers are your local artisans, chefs and makers and are passionate about sharing their knowledge with everyone. By gifting through ClassBento, we'll be keeping income and jobs within our local communities, and supporting your local artists. They're the ones who will spice up our lives and those of our children, and who will ensure that our communities are arty, funky, interesting and tasty.

It’s as easy a choosing an artisan workshop that you would like to gift, selecting the dollar amount and then heading to the online checkout. Some of our teachers are mobile which means they can bring the class to a venue of your choice, and even host private workshops for special occasions like wedding anniversary gifts and Mother’s Day experiences. Alternately the giftee can book into a public class and enjoy their experience gifts with a group of like minded people.

At the workshops all of the materials will be provided and all they have to do is show up with an open mind and a dash of creativity. Spoil your loved ones the next time a special occasion rolls around and gift them something truly memorable, maybe a bit quirky, but definitely as unique as them.


Great for last-minute gifting

Our gift certificates are sent to you immediately via email, which you can then print and present. If you'd like us to send you a gift card, we can do that too, within 1-3 business days. And if you'd like us to help you customise or further personalise your gift certificate to make it extra special, no problem, just get in touch.
