We have a large and growing audience, and powerful website features to help you capture more bookings, easily.
Teach individuals and/or groups, in-person and/or virtually - it's up to you.
Use our unique Request and Invite features to easily capture group bookings that suit you.
We're proud to have empowered some of our teachers to earn enough from their workshops that they can confidently quit their day jobs.
Spend more time on what you love, and less on bookings admin.
We'll take care of the entire customer journey, from automated transactional and reminder emails to collecting reviews, and everything in between. It's easy to manage your classes, refund/reschedule, and more.
Creating your listings on our platform only takes a few minutes. You can easily do it yourself; though if you need help, once you sign up, you'll get email and phone support from a dedicated GB-based growth partner
Let's improve mental wellbeing in our community.
Workshops are a great way to fight burnout, stress and dementia.
Here are some of the wonderful moments that we've created. Our teachers make a real difference to people's lives, by connecting teams and families, by helping people to discover their creative spark and to just be in the moment.
ClassBento is proud to be an award winner at the UK's SME National Business Awards 2021 for positive social impact.

Trusted by 1,000+ workshop providers
To tell you, from my experience, ClassBento is the best platform operating in the UK. I have been recommending students to use your services in general as you do a much better job taking care of students and tutors.
Many sites focus merely on the customer user experience, but ClassBento have meticulously designed a frictionless back end system for creators. This end to end system allows us to focus on the day to day running of our events and making sure that our clients and customers are happy.
It was super to work with you so far and looking forward to working with you next year, we have some new virtual cocktail making experiences to share with you. We certainly didn’t expect to see the volume of bookings last month, it exceeded all expectations
The ClassBento team is wonderful, they are helping and supporting any way they can. Making us, the hosts, feel like we all one company. Also, payment is very quick, which is extremely important for our cash flow

What we're about
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 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
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.
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.
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 which don't have an accompanying class with a date.
We only earn when you earn. 15% (inclusive of VAT) 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 customers.
Looking to list your online classes or in-person workshops? Selling craft kits and looking for a better sales channel? ClassBento's got you covered.
We've got a leading platform and system for bookings management with classes and experiences, built by an experienced team that includes former leaders from THE ICONIC, Domain, GroupOn, and Booking.com.
Whether you want to sell just through our website, or on your own through a widget, or if you want to sell gift cards - we've got the right features to support you.
So host with one of the best online class platforms around - sign up or get in touch, we can't wait to work with you!
