I’m Jane and I am 100% passionate about crafting – you name it, I have most probably tried it. I set up Tea and Crafting, a bricks and mortar workshop venue in Covent Garden, in 2009, as I wanted to share my love of all things crafty and show people how, that a lot of these crafts are easier to learn than you think, without the need to commit to a six-week course that can be difficult to fit into a busy lifestyle. I wanted to provide affordable classes that were effortless and fun to attend.

I believe that anyone and everyone can craft and that you don't need to be exceptional at a craft for it to have enormous positive effects on well being. Alongside a team of expert crafters I am proud to still be passing on these crafty skills 12 years later!

The venue was a bright, airy room with lots of craft work displayed which made for a lovely atmosphere. Cherry explained about the session and showed us the crochet steps needed to make a granny square which were very clear and enabled me to make two granny squares! Thank you for a lovely evening - I really enjoyed it and would recommend it if you would like to know how to crochet.

Cherry is a really kind and patient teacher and she is passionate about crafts.
She found time to follow everyone's progress which we all appreciated.
The venue is nice and they have the cleanest toilet I have seen in a while with decent soap and soft paper towels.
The room is bursting with Macrame and crochet and knitting creations and the drinks and cakes were lovely!

Labiba Zaima Jul 2024


Great class, teacher was so so helpful and great intro to get into crochet if you’re a complete beginner.

Sam Jun 2024


I didn’t imagine it was possible to make a case bound notebook in one short class before I did this course, but that’s exactly what we did. Everyone came away with a beautiful, unique notebook of their own making which looked as good as any from a shop, if not better! Kate was a fantastic teacher - everything was explained and demonstrated clearly, with the class being well-paced and assistance given if required (which wasn’t often as the instruction was so good). The materials provided were superb quality and everyone had their own set of professional tools to use during the class. I’d never tried bookbinding of any kind before and I was delighted with what I accomplished. I’d absolutely recommend this course to anyone who enjoys making things, appreciates beautiful books/stationery or gets a sense of accomplishment hand crafting something personal, unique and special.

Katherine Mou Jun 2024


The class was a lot of fun, very easy to follow and Shelly did an amazing job helping everyone who was at different stages of the bag!

Virginia Vogel Jun 2024


Amazing class! The time flew by, I can't believe we were working for 2 hours! All I want to do is keep practicing Calligraphy now!! :)

Louise May 2024


Attended the Granny Square Crochet for Beginners.
Lovely atmosphere, and the teacher Cherry was very patient.
Really enjoyed the class, and glad we got some materials to take home to have a go, and perfect our skills.
Thank you.

Claire May 2024


Attended the beginner crochet class not expecting to learn as much as I did. Cherry was amazing, very clear instructions and so helpful. The venue was wonderful and very inspiring. Would highly recommend!

Anne Loughlin Apr 2024


A delightful experience, with a fantastic teacher …the only negative is that time flew so fast. I would definitely do more classes here!

Nina Mir Apr 2024


I was such an amazing experience. I attended with two of my friends. We really enjoyed ourselves. The teacher was great, very approachable and skilled. The venue was so great, it reminded us of those carefree times in our lives when we were going to kindergarten and were doing art classes.

Anna Haire Apr 2024


The class was really excellent. Very well explained and lots of fun. I took my mum as a birthday present and we both came away with a few pairs of earrings and some lovely hair clips. Would go again!

Donna Thirkettle Mar 2024


My daughter gifted this class for my birthday. I’ve been dabbling with crochet for years and without much success but the tutor Cherry and the great class instruction booklet definitely helped with my understanding the granny square pattern!

Great evening, brilliant teacher, good fun, would really recommend any one wanting a lovely treat

Sidra Khokhar Feb 2024


Great class, learnt a lot! Would love to experiment with other mediums next time especially silver

James Murrell Jan 2024


Loved the beginners knitting class on Tuesday evening. Nessa was a very friendly, patient and experienced teacher. Good deal
For the price which included the class, nice wooden needles, a ball of wool, yarn needle, pamphlet, tea and cake. Learned. A lot, really worth it!

Hazel Goldman Jan 2024


My teacher was fabulous, she was fun and quirky, as you should be in the craft industry! I asked so many questions and she enjoyed answering all of them. Highly reccomend going to Sara for a silver clay workshop.

It's also right in the middle of Covent garden too! So perfect for food and drinks before/after

Anna Plesinska Dec 2023


I had so much fun during this class! Everything was provided(including coffee and cupcakes). The venue is lovely and cozy. Nessa was very friendly and helpful.️

Isobel Nov 2023


Really lovely workshop. Was great to walk away with a finish project. Would highly recommend.

Hilary McVitty Nov 2023


Shelley is as put simply great! Very informative but relaxed and she kept it simple - we were all newbies. The end result looked good in its uncured state - here’s hoping what I get in the post will still be wearable. Would do another class in a heartbeat.

Simone Fox Nov 2023


Really enjoyable evening. Denna was great - very engaging and full of energy. Lovely group and I am very pleased with my ring/necklace. Thank you

Alison Nov 2023


- Denna was an incredible and fun teacher! So warm, friendly, thorough and supportive!
- Venue was lovely, a little hard to find (you need to go through an alleyway and find a door) but otherwise a great location
- All materials were provided for - I liked that we got a ring and a chain at the end of the class
- I think it was great value for money!
- We learnt how to pick our ring size, use the different tools, solder, use a mandrel, hammer, and some other steps I've forgotten!
- It was just a really nice and wholesome environment! Tea and cake was also a nice touch!

The class was great. It was a smaller class which allowed for the teacher to be very hands-on and descriptive of every step within the process. She was also very personable which created a very nice atmosphere to work in.

Really enjoyed this class, learnt how to knit different stitches and how to cast on and off. Vanessa, our teacher, was really friendly and helpful. It was a great class for absolute beginners and those who knitted a long time ago but have forgotten. Also, the owner was really friendly when I had a query about the course. Thank you!

Mona Oct 2023


The location of the venue was great, very central and lovely decorated. We've been provided with all the materials needed to make jewellery. The quality and amount of materials were good and the teacher was helpful and it was clear she's experienced.
Atmosphere was really nice and the time flew by.

Jack Ellingham Oct 2023


Teacher was great: friendly, informative, funny and supportive. Enjoyed myself overall and would reccomend to other people to go.

Inny Atwal Oct 2023


The teacher was excellent, I enjoyed her funny comments while we were making the rings. She really was just a ray of sunshine! She made the process really easy and explained everything clearly. I really loved the class and my new ring!

Cathryn Cust Oct 2023


Our teacher was excellent, all equipment was provided, lots of room for creativity and plenty of take home tips!

Aya Karlieva Oct 2023


Shelley was very welcoming, friendly and positive. Had so much fun learning the macrame tricks! Would definitely recommend for everyone! Thank you!

Hussain Rashid Oct 2023


Teacher was fantastic, did my first macrame. She was patient and made the experience really fun.

Anonymised ClassBento student Oct 2023


The teacher was nice and my partner and I were keen to learn how to make the clay lamp. But we found the evening very disorganised and the teacher was very frantic. This didn’t make for a relaxing activity at all as her stressed energy impacted the teaching. We had agreed to the class being rescheduled twice previously so the level of disorganisation was a surprise. We also didn’t appreciate learning the reason for one of the rescheduled classes was so the teacher could attend a party. We also didn’t know in advance that you don’t leave with a finished product, and have to do a fair bit at home afterwards. We had to carry all the bits home without much protection for the items we’d made in class and the wet/soft clay was smooshed and damaged on the way home which took some time to repair ourselves. Again, the teacher was nice, but for the price (which was expensive given how much we had to do ourselves outside of the class), we were overall a bit disappointed. They did provide prosecco and (box-made) cupcakes, and a little extra paint as a gesture of thanks for rescheduling, which was nice. I would have preferred to leave the feedback privately but can’t see that option here.

Francesca Sep 2023


Teacher was encouraging and accommodated for different levels of experience/abilities. Overall it was great fun

Hannah Sep 2023


Good class, liked the result. Enjoyed the process. Would be good to have some more pattern options

Great class! Materials all provided, venue was a very calm and colourful space. The teacher was very enthusiastic, and very clear with her instructions. She gave us lots of tips to leave with! A really fun and enjoyable class, I'd definitely try another class at the venue again!

Laura Ghisellini Jul 2023


Very nice experience. Excellent teacher! Friendly and relaxing atmosphere. I learned what I was expected.

Beginners' Knitting Class review by Laura Ghisellini - London

Dawn McCusker Jul 2023


Our teacher, Charlotte, was wonderful! We had 13 in our group and she did a fantastic job with a large number of students. Instructions and materials were provided which we were able to take with us. She provided tea, water and lovely cupcakes, asking days before if we had any vegan or gluten needs. The two hours flew by and we had a great time. We're a study abroad group from the US. The students had such a lovely time! They learned a lot on brush calligraphy, how to use the pens correctly, and the correct way to make each letter! The location was a cute room in a building near Covent Garden, decorated for creative inspiration! I would highly recommend this class!

Vanessa was absolutely lovely - I’ve learned a lot! Would 110% recommend. Thank you for the class.

Penelope Denby May 2023


Really enjoyable evening. Shelly explained the process of making the resin jewellery very clearly. I am looking forward to receiving my earrings and pendant soon and I will be ordering some materials too so I can practise at home. Will be looking out too for some other Bento classes I can do.

Gregory Allen May 2023


Great starter course. Was able to go at your own pace even with others in the room. The calming wirds from Nessa the teacher helped every time. Learnt enough to get started and practice will help me get better and understand refresher videos. But Nessa was brilliant

Wonderful way to spend an evening making a lamp.
Shelly was an amazing tutor and gave us undivided attention when needed.

Thank you so much!

Clare D'Netto Mar 2023


A relaxed and friendly vibe. The pace of the class was just right and our teacher was able to tailor support for different levels of experience in crochet. I already had some knowledge of crochet but I’d always wanted to learn how to make granny squares. Now feel confident to start my first project.

My friend and I had the best time doing this class - Denna was such a lush teacher - she made it really comfortable, relaxed and fun! She explained everything so well with lots of hilarious stories to share. We're both thrilled with our new rings! All in all it was a very special experience (with tea and cakes to boot!) x

Merve Karal Mar 2023


The teacher was so lovely and the class was very informative. The teacher helped everyone to understand every bit. Extra bonuses for yummy donuts

My mum and I had a fantastic time making giant arm knitted blankets! Our teacher was kind and patient and our vegan yarn was so soft and wonderful. We managed to make our blankets in an hour and have been inspired to try to make another by ourselves! Even our cat loves our blankets!

Textiles class review by Riley Forson - London

Marita Tjolle Feb 2023


My sister and I took our mum to the arm knitting class for her birthday. It was a fun and enjoyable session which we would now feel confident making a blanket at home.

The not so good bits were 1) we booked the course through a third party and this cost us more, I wouldn’t have known this except class bento sent a receipt for less money than I paid, which was kind of annoying to know I could have paid less 2) A few of the wool colours weren't available, leaving me needing to select my third choice of colour for the blanket. Mum chose hot pink which when delivered was pale pink and she needed to selected another colour a couple of days before the course. If you are flexible with what colour or where you are going to put the blanket that’s ok but otherwise may leave you with a blanket that doesn’t fit your colour scheme. 3) The detailed email with all the information on didn’t get sent until the day before the session at 3.40pm and advised a time extension of 30mins which meant our return train time was tighter than we would have liked. The email would have been better sent earlier in the week allowing you to plan your day.

All in all the day was fun and we had a lovely day together. Nessa who ran the course was friendly and helpful keeping us all on track to produce a beautiful blanket.

Sarah Muir Nov 2022


Teacher was so good, really good at supporting and explaining! Had an amazing time and love that we take a ring away with us! I love it

Laurie Assemat Nov 2022


Charlotte was a great teacher, really friendly and helpful. The class size was good too (8 of us). Great venue - really lovely interiors and suited the workshop well.

Beverley Nicklin Nov 2022


Great calligraphy workshop with Charlotte today! Her demonstrations were easy to follow and she was very friendly and approachable. The workbook she provided was lovely and included a guide to the alphabet and Christmassy words. There was plenty of time to practice and receive personal guidance when needed. Lots of items included - pens, paper, cards and crackers, all in a handwritten personalised bag.
The communication beforehand by ClassBento was great and
the workshop was a lovely bright space in a convenient location. I would recommend this workshop.

Alice Ruaux Nov 2022

Daria the teacher was so lovely and welcomed me with a warm smile. The venue was super clean and pretty decorated by all the crafts. The materials provided for this class were all great. Daria taught me all the foundations of Bead and Sequin Embroidery, I cannot wait to go get some beads myself and start working on new projects! I think the experience is definitely good value for money as well.

I found this class great. The teacher was great and explained everything really well. Te venue was a bit and to find but I called and it was just around the corner and inside the workshop was so nice and inviting.
I would defo recommend this class and possibly do a more complex class next time, I have already knitted another blanket

Victoria Murphy Oct 2022


Friendly, skilled teacher (Charlotte) taught me the basics of brush calligraphy and gave me the confidence to go and write pretty cards! The Tea and Crafting venue was very jolly, too. There were just two of us in the class and it was all really fun, with lots of bits to take home too.

Niamh Burns Sep 2022


Denna was an amazing, funny and encouraging teacher. I went alone as I was bought the class as a birthday gift and I felt very at ease and comfortable being alone. Denna has a great sense of humour and made the class fun and inspiring. She’s made me want to Buy a beginners pack for Ring making. I love my finished ring and it’s a special memory il cherish!

Benita is such a gem! she made the process so easy to follow and facilitated such a friendly and creative work environment, staying so patient with the 100s of questions we threw at her. we spent the session creating pairs of resin earrings which we get to keep. i can’t recommend this course enough, such a lovely atmosphere and such a therapeutic activity to get lots in. thank you, benita :-)

Teacher was great - so enthusiastic and explained the steps well. Great selection of materials - colours, dried flowers, glitter, metallic flakes. Lovely setting as well and great location for after work. Fantastic value for money too, can’t wait to see my earrings all set! 100% recommend

The Hoop class was an awesome fun lesson and I learned so much. Daria is a lovely teacher. She explained all the techniques in great detail and shared many great tips with us.
Very beginner friendly and a welcoming atmosphere.

I enjoyed the class so much! Making jesmonite was easier than I thought and Benita was a great teacher, she explained carefully how to use it and followed us step by step. Highly recommended!

The teachers were very helpful and very welcoming. They were very patient too!
The venue was lovely, I loved the colorful display of their work and I'm looking forward to go back and learn more!
I did like the materials that were provided, I cannot wait to buy my first yarn and keep going with practising what I have learned!
The class was good value for money.
I learn how to do a granny's square. I think I'll join the next level course, after practising a bit more at home, so I will feel more confident.
Many thanks for the lovely experience

Nessa was a fantastic teacher - giving everyone the time and attention they required. I left learning 2 new stitches which I'm thrilled about and feel like I have the confidence to move forward with a new project!

Maddie was a really great tutor and got us started really quickly doing some punch needle work. Materials arrived in time and I had a great time learning something new. Thanks so much, I will definitely be doing more!

Ashleigh Reid Apr 2021


Very helpful and fully enjoyed the class. I would do it again and recommend it to anyone else.

Susie Ingram Apr 2021


We really enjoyed it! Maddie made it really easy to understand and she was extremely patient. I feel so confident now that I can try this alone. The whole event was wonderfully organised and the relaxing tea bag was such a lovely extra. We will definitely try more classes!

Michelle has been fantastic.

We all have learnt the basics of watercolours (mixing colours, how to draw basic shapes, blending, etc) and lots of motivation to encourage us to continue painting this beautiful technique.
Time went so quickly and everyone enjoy the class.
Thank you very much

Very friendly and engaging tutor. Came out with a nice flower to either extend or sew onto something, and the skills and confidence to move forward with a project on my own.

The teacher was absolutely charming and taught colour mixing , use of brush and basics very sympathetically. It was not at all intimidating,and I came away with some very sensible advice and practical experience! I would be happy to endorse the experience to anyone. Mary C

Really enjoyed the class, although would have been better still if there had been more chat amongst the participantsmaybe if everyone had the opportunity to introduce themselves before the class started it would have helped encourage everyone to chat.

Maria Claridge Mar 2021


Fantastic class. Really informative and fun. We were able to go at our own pace but still work together as a class. Loved it.

Allison Thistlewood Mar 2021


Great class with a very patient instructor. Very straight forward and pleased with the results!

Arm Knit a Blanket at Home review by Allison Thistlewood

Julie Eklund Mar 2021


Excellent class, which my teenage daughter thoroughly enjoyed. Easy to follow and helpful teacher. Completed the blanket in a single session.

Lara Taylor Mar 2021


Although there were a few technical difficulties initially and problems with postage, none of these were under Tea and Crafting's control and they truly went above and beyond to make sure we had our wool on time. The class itself was wonderful, the teacher made sure to move at pace that was comfortable for everyone and really made the class enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this as a great lockdown activity!
