We had a lovely afternoon doing the Ikebana taster session. It was very interesting, the venue is nice and Nono was so knowledgeable and helpful.

I was invited to the workshop by my friend. We had a great time! As well as the flow of workshop was so easy, and explanation, details made it one of the most comfortable workshops I’ve ever been to.

James Mudd Jun 2024


Khim came to my home after the venue pulled out. He was a charming teacher who went at our pace and was happy to chat and answer questions. After finishing our first display and taking photos he suggested we go out to my garden to forage for flowers and stems for a second one. Me and my friend got to keep a beautiful bowl and kenzan each at the end. Highly recommend.

Alison Streeter Jun 2024


My sister and I spent a fab morning with Nono. She couldn’t have been more helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We came home with two lovely hand tied bouquets which we are delighted with. Would highly recommend.

I recently participated in the kokedama workshop to celebrate my birthday, and it turned out to be a truly wonderful experience!

Our instructor, Momo, was not only highly knowledgeable but also incredibly patient and enthusiastic. Her passion for the art of kokedama was infectious, and she was always ready to offer helpful tips and encouragement.

All materials needed for the workshop were provided, and they were of excellent quality. From the variety of plants to the moss and strings. We learned the history and cultural significance of kokedama, as well as the techniques required to make our own. Momo guided us step-by-step through the process, ensuring everyone was able to follow along and create something they were proud of.

It felt like great value for money, as we all left with beautiful kokedama creations and newfound skills.

Overall, I highly recommend this kokedama workshop to anyone interested in exploring a new craft, celebrating a special occasion, or simply looking for a fun and relaxing activity. It's an experience you won't forget!

Francesca Jun 2024


I have gifted this workshop to my girlfriend and have attended together. Nono was a great teacher, she explained everything in details and demonstrated how to build a kokedama, and helped with any kind of issues we encountered when doing it ourselves. She provides with anything you'll need for the workshop, you can choose what plant to use for your own kokedama and Nono will also explain why some plants are more suitable for this technique than others. Overall I really liked the workshop and the relaxed atmosphere in which we were working. Highly recommend!

Laurie May 2024


Fantastic tour of the flower market and it’s offering followed by hands on learning to make beautiful bouquets. Nono was a wonderful instructor, offering her knowledge and experience. I truly enjoyed the class!

Floristry class review by Laurie - London

Loukas Angelou May 2024


The ikebana course was 2 hours and they have managed to fit a lot into it. We got taught the basics but enough to give us a base to start creating our ikebana arrangements.
The group was small, which helped to follow the steps, interact and get to ask questions the teacher.
I would recommend it to anyone who would like to give this as a present or see if ikebana is something that they are passionate about.

Jennifer Baldo May 2024


I really enjoyed my morning with Nono learning to put a beautiful bouquet together. She is very approachable and knowledgeable. I took away some skills and ideas that I would use at home and feel more confident about putting something together for myself or a friend. Really lovely experience. Would definitely recommend

Floristry class review by Jennifer Baldo - London

Nicolas May 2024


I received as a gift a voucher for this workshop.Nono the teacher was extremely good at sharing her passion and and the spirit on how to do the flower arrangement.

We learned the basics and free style of ikebana and we went home with our creation.

It was most definitely a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

PS:i forgot to mention the delicious tea we were served and the sweets.

Anonymised ClassBento student May 2024


10/10 would recommend. Great teacher, plenty of flowers to choose from, and you take all the fowers you used home after the session

Nikita May 2024


Really nice class, I would say it’s important to know you’re meeting in the flower market and then get the tube to the studio in Shoreditch, it was no problem for us but a piece of information I would’ve appreciated knowing when booking and others I’m sure also!

Amber May 2024


We booked the flower crown workshop for my friend's hen party. It was amazing! The teachers were brilliant, they created such a fun atmosphere (including directing an impromptu photoshoot at the end, which was hilarious) and really know their stuff. The flower crowns were nicer than any I've seen in a shop. We felt really looked after and had so much fun. A very creative way to kick off a hen. I'd thoroughly recommend!

Florrie May 2024


Absolutely incredible! The teacher, Nono, was so knowledgeable and gave us a great understanding of the background and the rules behind Ikebana. We were encouraged to create classic styles and then let free on a freestyle which was great fun. We got guidance and advice and encouragement throughout and it was an incredibly calming process. We were able to keep the materials at the end so I came home to create my own to display. Will definitely be going back!

Lovely morning spent with our host browsing the market then making bouquets back at the studio close by. Lots of advice on how to construct a hand tied bouquet. Our host was delightful - so friendly and helpful (sorry I forgot her name).

Hanna Staniszewska Apr 2024


Our team social was fabulous! There were 3 facilitators for 11 of us, so there was plenty of individual attention. Laurentio walked us through the process step by step with so much fun, and we all ended up with great photos and beautiful terrariums that will last a lifetime. Very well organised!

Fabienne Doebeli Apr 2024


The Class was so much fun and the results look great! Our teacher was lovely and very patient with us :) would recommend

Ieva Avinauskaite Apr 2024


We had a lovely time in creating our own unique terrariums, which will last a long time. The instructor was very informative and helpful, encouraging us to use our creativity!

Nicky Gold Apr 2024


Thank you, a fantastic morning and lovely experience and so happy with the flowers we created

Ikhra Ali Apr 2024

Aleks Hughes Apr 2024


Fun and informative bouquet making class! Really friendly teacher and great format with a relaxed stroll around the Flower market and then 1 on 1 session with the instructor

Sevren Anderson Mar 2024


We had such an enjoyable afternoon! Our workshop leaders were delightful and so informative. Cannot recommend highly enough!
We learnt how to make a dried flower Easter wreath. All materials were provided and the class was a lot of fun. The instructors came to my house and the whole day couldn’t have been more enjoyable.

Grace Mar 2024


Our workshop leader was excellent. They did well in the face of stress (either ourselves or ClassBento had made an error in communicating class times) but was quick to set up, communicative and knowledgeable. He had some really funny one-liners! Made the team laugh out loloudand truly engaged them and taught them a skill. Best ClassBento leader we have had. 11/10.

Amanda Hawthorn Mar 2024


FABULOUS
Excellent team - and top star teacher! Thankyou
Highly recommended. Would love to do it again

Rosemary Ajayi Mar 2024


Really enjoyed the Ikebana class. It was our first time trying out Ikebana floristry, had loads of fun! A great experience :)

Bethany Feb 2024


I visited to get inspiration for self-arranging flowers for my wedding. It was a wonderful class - very small, with lots of 1-2-1 attention. There was a range of lovely flowers and plants to choose from, and we learned a multiple techniques - I took lots of notes! I was a little nervous about the price, but it is a wonderful investment - it will certainly save me money in future as I now have confidence to create my own beautiful arrangements, although I will need a bit more practice

Floristry class review by Bethany - London

Ama Williams Feb 2024


A wonderful workshop! Kihn and Jean were great company and wonderful teachers. It was nice to learn about flowers and amazing to make our own bouquet. They turned out beautiful, thanks for a wholesome morning!

Sian Feb 2024


Khin was brilliant! So knowledgeable – I learnt so much in a short space of time. Really enjoyable class, tailored to what I was interested in and was also able to take home my creations! Definitely recommend ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Lauren Lilliard Feb 2024


It may have been the day after Valentine’s Day but you can never have enough flowers.
So 16 of us sat down for a masterclass in arranging a tied bouquet of flowers.
Of course the expert made it look easy but for us amateurs it was a challenge and who knew that you have to hold the bouquet so tight while you’re making it that it actually causes your hand to cramp up!
With perseverance (and some help!) we all finished the night with a beautiful bouquet to take away and put in pride of place in our homes.

Hattie Barnes Feb 2024


Loved our class! Beautiful flowers, clear instructions - and Khin and team were super patient with us as we got to grips with things! Would 100% recommend and will be back! Thank you again!

Myung Eun Lee Feb 2024


Instructors - Frankie, Khin, and Holly were phenomenal to have! We hosted an Ikebana workshop for our employees as part of the Lunar New Year celebrations at work, and every single person left the workshop smiling, having enjoyed the arrangement techniques, the history, and culture. We loved the team's energy and excited to come by for future classes!

Michael Feb 2024


We had an enjoyable few hours learning about flowers during a walk down Columbia Road and then back to the studio to make a beautiful hand tied bouquets with seasonal flowers. Khin was a great teacher, it was a lovely venue and good value for money. Highly recommended.

Julia Bridgwater Feb 2024


A really enjoyable afternoon with Nono. Unbelievably hard to do a simple flower arrangement but with her guidance managed to produce something passable with her beautiful flowers!
A wonderful teacher who has shed light on the art of Ikebana and a great birthday present for me.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable morning with Khin and Co. The New Covent Garden flower market is fascinating and beautiful. At the workshop afterwards, a great lesson in arranging a stunning bouquet. Lots of useful tips and help. Am so pleased I chose this workshop. Khin has lots of knowledge and great taste. The perfect antidote for January!

Anonymised ClassBento student Jan 2024


I had a great time in this class! The teacher was warm, clear and engaging. We had beautiful flowers to work with and I was thrilled to bring my creations home. I feel like I've gained a good grasp of the fundamentals so I can continue to make creative arrangements. Highly recommended.

Judy Glasman Jan 2024


Teacher is charming, knowledgeable and very skilled at demonstrating her craft. We made several displays. There were abundant flowers, twigs and dried flowers to work with. It was lovely to be greeted with green tea and snacks.

The workshop was excellent, one of the best experiences I’ve had in London. Frankie was amazing and I loved that the workshop had a clear structure including a bit of history & cultural background, a demo and then enough time for participants to make their creations as well. Frankie’s delivery of the course was very patient and thoughtful and the space itself was incredibly beautiful. In all, a lovely experience, would highly recommend.

Maia Nov 2023


Very nice and warm introduction to Ikebana with Ken. He explained some basic principles, showed us a simple structure to follow, and guided us through our own arrangements based on the model. He also provided an original selection of flowers to use during the workshop and bring home. We left with our own kenzan and ceramics bowl, so we could easily recreate the arrangements or continue experimenting right away. The studio was lovely and so was Ken's company.

Colleen Oct 2023


Very knowledgeable teacher and great venue - such a fun lesson and I went home with a stunning bouquet that will be enjoyed for ages.

We booked this class for a hen party. We had 18 attend. We had so much fun making our flower crowns. Khin & the team did a great job or explaining how to make the crowns, helping us out & a fun photo shoot at the end. Everyone loved their flower crowns and it was the perfect activity for our hen party.

Anne Fox Aug 2023


Brilliant experience all round. Instructors were really good and very patient. I would highly recommend it.

Viviana Attard Aug 2023


The teacher was excellent; we had fun. We were with another tiny party, and thank God they were nice (not drunk, rowdy and all the jazz you might encounter when you see some other hendo.

Bob Bharij Aug 2023


Excellent first introduction to Ikebana with a teacher that was passionate about this incredible art form and happy to share his experiences generously. Wonderful to be given some bits of kit which meant that we were able to start making arrangements straight away after feeling so inspired.

Sally Playfoot Aug 2023


I had a fabulous morning with Khin. I leaned so much I had always wanted to know about flower arranging. I can’t wait to try out on my own. The tour of the flower market was excellent. He has given me some me useful tips I will definitely use in the future. The studio is a lovely place to work. A memorable morning.

A fantastic introduction into floristry, great teacher and stunning flowers to take home! Highly recommend.

Sophie Ruston Jul 2023


The class was a good morning out and I did enjoy, however I wouldn’t say it was worth the money spent on it. The tour was interesting but if you have been to Columbia road flower market before you don’t see anything you haven’t seen before, and are given time to roam it freely, which you can do free of charge anyway. The class itself is interesting but the flowers are chosen ahead of the class by the teacher (not from the market) and style of arrangement is demonstrated and told to copy rather than anything being taught, then the class is over. The class is only 2.25 hours once everyone has arrived and then it finishes at 12:30 not 1 so I was a little disappointed as it felt quite rushed and wasn’t the 3 hours advertised. Khin was friendly and I don’t like leaving bad reviews however I felt the transparency was important as this is an expensive class!

The workshop with Khin was a great experience that I recommend for everyone I work as a florist in my home country which has a tropical climate. There I had the chance to get to know a street flower market and use local seasonal flowers that I rarely see back home. Khin is a very kind and competent teacher and has a lovely way of teaching! And is so nice to meet passionate people who love flowers too

Rodica Chiricuta Jul 2023


An ikebana class was my dream since I was a child and I was so excited to see my dream coming true.
Our teacher had a practical approach, he explained basics and then he did 2 different ikebana arrangements by explaining each step.
We did one ikebana following his example and another one on our choice.
The teacher kindly made suggestions only when I asked.
I liked the richness of flowers, leaves and brunches provided. I received a bowl and a kenzan to practice at home. Our teacher answered all my questions.
I learned so much and I had a great time. Thank you!

Wonderful experience and introduction to Ikebana.
The teacher, environment, materials were all the very best. We got a good idea of the practice and left with our own materials to re-create our arrangements at home. Small class so we each got lots of attention from the teacher who is not only very knowledgeable but lots of fun.
Company was great, all in all thoroughly recommend

Learnt so much from the teacher, flower arranging is not as easy as it looks!

The teacher is very kind and friendly. It ended up being a one to one lesson after a rescheduled booking.

The flowers are amazing and exotic.

Could not recommend this class more.

Look forward to next classes I'll be booking like the wreath making.

Patricia Timkova Mar 2023


Our teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a tour around the flower market, got tips how to choose flowers, then we got to choose flowers that we'd like to include in our bouquet. We then went to the studio where everything else ( tools , some additional flowers etc.) was provided, and after his presentation we made our own bouquets. I was pleasantly surprised how much I learnt in that short period. Khin is very good at explaining , very patient and helpful. I would definitely recommend his workshop to anyone to get a brief experience with a beautiful world of flowers

My husband bought me the flower market and workshop for Christmas. My mum an I have just finished our morning and have had the loveliest time. After meeting our teacher Khin and his lovely assistant Frankie we headed for columbia Road flower market. They were so knowledgeable and could see they are very passionate about what they do.
We then went back to Khin's beautiful little workshop and created our bouquets. Khin talked us through step by step and we enjoyed every minute,such a wonderful thing to do with my mum on a sunny Sunday morning.
Would highly recommend, you will have the best time Thankyou.

The course was really lovely felt like a very wholesome morning. Our teacher Khin and his helper were amazing. They were really helpful and informative, they answered all of our questions, and the class felt really personal despite there being quite a few people there! We didn’t need to bring anything and we left with lots of new knowledge and a really nice bunch of flowers that we put together ourselves. Would definitely recommend for anyone who has an interest in floristry or just looking for something fun and wholesome to do in the morning.

Bought this as a birthday gift for my friend and it was such a lovely afternoon! They were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the workshop, with loads of options for colors/flowers to incorporate - the wreaths turned out extremely well. Would highly recommend!

The teacher for my workshop was very kind and nice and taught us a lot about each flower we saw in the market which I loved.
The flower materials are perfect as all seems that I cannot buy at normal supermarkets and I love all. And I enjoyed learning to make a bouquet today. The experience was good valur for money I can say for sure.

I had a really enjoyable time on this course. The tour of the fabulous flower market given by Khin was informative and interesting. Then at the pretty flower studio Khin gave a clear demonstration of how to make a hand tied bouquet. The flowers we used were well organised and I liked using flowers I had not come across before. I was very pleased with my final arrangement and Khin was helpful with making sure it looked its best. He was an enthusistic and engaging teacher. Afterwards I went back to the market and bought some wonderful hydrangeas which Khin had talked about on the course. Thank you for a great experience.

Really lovely class and a fantastic way to take a few hours out of hectic London life. Fantastic introduction to Ikebana by a professional, enthusiastic florist. Great to learn so much, observe and also try my own hand under expert, patient and open-minded guidance. Not just 'classic' approaches but also room for fusion and improv. Loved it!

Alice Wilcock Jul 2022


Venue was easy to find and the teacher guided us to the space which was light and airy and welcoming. Kim was absolutely lovely, both expert but relaxed, giving us top tips and being kind and reassuring if we needed help. This was a surprise birthday present for my sister and she loved it and we both left with stunning arrangements.

Khin the teacher was lovely and offered to get flowers in line with the wedding theme! The venue is a warehouse in Old Street, nothing special but did the job. The selection of dried flowers was stunning! We all learnt something about flower arranging and were surprised at how long the activity kept us busy (in a good way - in total it was slightly less than the 90 minutes stipulated). Would recommend but it is an expensive hen activity if working to a reasonable budget and trying to do other activities on the same day!

Simone Konu-Rae Jun 2022


The teacher was knowledgeable, hospitable and experienced. The space was lovely to work in with all the materials provided as well as some take home pieces and flowers so you could extend the practice beyond the class. I found this a truly relaxing experience and will continue to practice. I learnt about the rules of ikebana along with the history. All in all a great class

Ikebana Flower Arranging Workshop review by Simone Konu-Rae - London

Alison Robinson Jun 2022


Khin managed to convey the main principles of ikebana and coach us through three different arrangements all in 2 hours. It never felt rushed though. I don't consider myself at all artistic but was pleased with what I created. Thoroughly enjoyable and very good for mental wellbeing. Thanks Khin!

Ann Humphrys Jun 2022


Firstly, my booking was cancelled once, then the time was changed and then the venue was changed. Secondly, I stood for at least 10 mins trying to get the door answered so was late and the class had already started. I was told that they had changed to another room and couldn’t hear the intercom. There were far too many people on the course (11) for the size of the room and there wasn’t enough room to stand at the table which was only big enough for 8 max. I was working on a worktop by the sink! I’ve been on several dried flower courses over the years so am very familiar with what’s available and was extremely disappointed when I saw the flowers that were being used which were the cheapest varieties available. I think to charge £85 for this course is outrageous and definitely not worth the money. My husband bought this as a treat and was disappointed at my experience. I would say that the teacher was very nice but I still feel too many attendees.

The teacher from the Flower Factory was great and the class too. Absolutely recommend! Loved it!

Amazing experience for my hen party. The ladies teaching us were super patient and extremely helpful. Everyone absolutely adored the workshop. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Ceara Gummer May 2022


The class was very expensive for the price. I feel like I got a different experience to what the other reviews were saying. Although the teacher was nice, I don’t feel like I learnt much. The advice was basically anything works and you need to practice. I’m so disappointed as I don’t feel much wiser.

I had such a fantastic day. Khin first showed me around the flower market and we then went to his studio and arranged three different sized bouquets. Khin is friendly and fun and was a great teacher and I’d recommend the class to anyone wanting a gentle introduction to flower arranging. Thanks for a lovely day!

We had a great time! Easy to find location and the class was everything you want on a Sunday afternoon. Left the class with a bunch of flowers and ikebana essentials so we can do it at home at no extra cost.

It is a great lesson! Everyone will enjoy it. There’s so much fun. The teacher is very polite, patient, supportive and has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable, and always keeping it light and fun. It’s definitely worth to make a Christmas wreath by yourself, no matter how it looks, it’s full of memories.

Friendly, informative and creative class I really enjoyed. Small class - Lots of attention to each person and I was very impressed how we ended our with different decorations! All Christmas songs while we worked on with the flowers - bonus :)

Jessica Smith Nov 2021


My friend & I had a wonderful time doing the wreath making - the teacher Khin was very nice and helpful with travel tips checking in before the event and was very patient with us when making the wreaths. We were both very happy with the end results! There was also a friendly atmosphere with background music and nice touches including treats! I would highly recommend this experience - especially for beginners like us

Adrian Webster Nov 2021


Kinh was extremely charming, encouraging and helpful He was generous with materials and relaxed in his approach. The venue was cramped but so full of character that it didn’t really matter. I walked out feeling relaxed and inspired and believing that maybe I was creative after all.

Olivia Magnante Nov 2021


Such a great class. Khin was really informative & made the session fun, also was more than happy to answer any questions we had. There was a great variety of flowers to choose from to make the bouquet & we left with a really nice bouquet to take home.

Katherine McKenna Oct 2021


Khin our Ikebana teacher was a pleasure to work with. We learnt a new flower arranging technique which was creative and totally immersive. We made two flower arrangements in the two hours and took all the materials home to recreate it again!

Maria Brewer Oct 2021


We all enjoyed the class very much and learnt a lot in a short time. Ken was delightful and helpful. The workshop space was rather tight. A larger room would have been better. Overall good value for money.

This Ikebana flower arranging workshop was a surprise birthday present for me and I absolutely loved it. Khin was an amazing teacher. He encouraged me throughout and allowed me to introduce my own creativity into floral arranging. The classical background music made my session very therapeutic. I would highly recommend this class for anyone who loves flowers and / or floral arrangements but would like a good foundation in the art. I learnt so much about Ikebana that I feel comfortable applying for my home floral arrangements. This was a certainly unique, useful and memorable experience.

Our host, Khin, was lovely, really personable, experienced and friendly. I would definitely recommend this as a great little get together for up to 3 friends and I'm sure Khin would be really accommodating to meeting your needs.

We were really happy with the wreath's we walked away with, it was nice to have the freedom to use which ever materials we liked form the making room!

Thanks so much for a fun and creative afternoon!

Ken is a great teacher, very patient. I enjoyed my class and also I really like the bouquet I made.

Emma Preston Jul 2021


We had a great time doing this for a birthday activity. Khin was a fantastic teacher - very friendly, chatty and knowledgable. They helped show us techniques and could advise and suggest elements to add. We selected the colours and types of flowers we wanted individually which allowed us to get creative but to our own style. We all ended up with really different and individual crowns which was brilliant as they all suited our different personalities.
Highly recommend this class!
