Felicity Feb 2024


Really enjoyed this class. Relaxed and informal, and it was great to pick up a paint brush again!

Zsuzsanna Vanya Feb 2024


The class was amazing and the ladies were so helpful.
We received an email confirmation with 3 different address in it stating Battersea on it so I made my way there where I had to realise it is a wrong address, therefore I arrived 30min late and instead of having a chilled, relaxing painting sesh it was extremely stressful to be able to catch up with the rest of the team

Ruth Jones Feb 2024


Fun, relaxing and great tuition we loved our class and would definitely recommend it to anyone

Angela Wallace Feb 2024


Really fun class, well explained by the team who supported us when we needed guidance. Great materials and in a pub so we could have drinks while painting. Would definitely recommend.

Amber Jan 2024


Toni was a lovely host and teacher! Super enthusiastic and helpful through the experience. My partner and I loved the class and would definitely do it again!

Kenz J. Hilton Jan 2024


10/10 experience, i went on a first date to the session and it was perfect. the teachers were very engaging and entertaining making sure to talk to all of us and meet us. the actual pouring was so much fun.

it got me a second date so i would recommend

Priscilla Jantuah Jan 2024


The class was amazing! The energy was great, music playlist perfect and the teachers patient and fun. Definitely recommend! It’s an exceptional experience

Charlotte Surry Jan 2024


We had a great time doing this. It was really fun and we both thought the teacher was great and had a good way with teaching and talking to us. We laughed and enjoyed it and learnt alot too.

Elena Jan 2024


Our teacher Toni was really lovely and engaging. I went with my 10 year old son and we had an amazing time. The venue was great and everything needed was provided. Highly recommended l

Tola Henry Jan 2024


Great experience! Teacher was very informative and welcoming. Teacher provided demonstrations and assistance. Equipment was freely avaliable to use.

Anonymised ClassBento student Jan 2024


Melissa was lovely, very knowledgable and patient - really enjoyable afternoon! Good for all levels and groups / people on their own

Eemaan Dhalla Dec 2023


The teachers were really friendly and the class was so much fun! Loved the pieces we created.

Andreas Dec 2023


We loved the class, Melissa was super helpful in guiding us through the painting. We walked away very happy with our pieces. We'll be coming back!

Felix Nov 2023


Our team had a great time learning some techniques and painting each others portraits which was immensely fun. The time flew by and we could have carried on obliviously.

Would highly recommend taking one of these classes and would look to book again in the future

Alex Goodship Nov 2023


I really enjoyed the class, the venue, the teachers. It was a lot of fun and I'm really happy with my paintings, thanks so much!

Anonymised ClassBento student Nov 2023


The teacher was really helpful and guided me to improve my technique. Would highly recommend!

Anonymised ClassBento student Nov 2023


Overall I enjoyed this class! The person running the class was lovely and super helpful when we needed support. I also really liked the painting that we were doing. However, the space in which the painting class took place wasn’t the largest so felt a bit cramped. Also, it unfortunately wasn’t a proper guided paint, as the person demonstrating was behind due to having to support people in the class - this meant she was simply telling us what we could do next rather than showing us. Once she got back to painting she would quickly catch up, as oppose to the guide and painters doing it at the same time.

Teacher's response

Thank you for your feedback. All feedback is very valuable for us to monitor the quality. As this was a public class and not a private class, customers may go at different paces and some customers may need extra support. The teacher was giving extra support to those who needed it. We also had another assistant who came round to personally ask you if you needed any additional help and explained to you and your friend anything you needed help with by also showing you on the canvas how to do it.

Please do not hesitate to email or call us if you need any further assistance.

Warmest regards,
Undergrounder x

Melissa had been responsive to my questions before I decided to buy a class. The venue was lovely and central. Even though I had zero painting skill, my picture looked amazing. It was easy to follow the instructions. I really enjoyed my painting class today.

Luana Pugliesi Fraga Oct 2023


Great teacher, perfect setting. Was my first time painting, we had a lot of fun!

Robert Fox Oct 2023


Our techers were friendly and accommodating ahead of the event to get things sorted out.
They came to our office space to host the event and it was a great experience.
Everything was provided for us so there was no stress setting up
everyone had a great time and it was something different to offer to the team. Plus everyone got to go home with something they made.

Hannah Roiter Sep 2023


Such a fun class! Everyone in our group really enjoyed it regardless of painting ability :-) It was really well organised and the teacher was great and had really good energy. Would definitely recommend :-)

Avril Sep 2023


Only negative was not suitable for people with mobility requirements. I am also recovering from a close bereavement. Melissa was patient and encouraging, learnt more about colour mixing and the materials were accessible . The therapeutic experience was good value for money We all came out with a replica of the photograph taken

The teacher was great. Very helpful.
My only criticism was that the venue was very small and cramped. Two classes were using a small room and we had very little room to move around.

Fun class that’s suitable for total art novices; it was really easy to create something beautiful despite having no artistic talents! The instructor was friendly and helpful.

Anonymised ClassBento student Sep 2023


Cultivated a really nice vibe! Encouraged creativity as well as showing the guidelines

Would definitely recommend!

Great teachers, and loved what I was able to create. and we learnt a couple of different techniques. I enjoyed the fact that there was no right or wrong design, you'd only be limited by your imagination and the colours you mixed to create your palette.
Venue was unfortunate - just a trek ads I am in North London, - I had thought that the venues would be central London focused that was disappointing.
The venue - The Mitre was however a great place for the class , when I got there, though we did have a problem with AC, there wasn't any , pretty hot day.

Fluid Art class review by Sandra Nwajiaku - London

Maeva May Aug 2023


This was an incredibly fun class and definite value for money. My 12 year old daughter and I did it together and had great canvasses to hang in our home - a memorable birthday experience for both. I think the way the teachers could take it from good to great would be to explain a bit more about the technique and why it works the way it did - I would have loved to know what the different materials we used were and why they produced the beautiful effects that they did. But regardless, highly recommend!

Izzy Aug 2023


It was a good class with some cool canvas's to take home. The teacher was lovely and obviously knew a lot about the art and how to do it. However the reason I've not scored higher is because of how difficult it was to transport the canvas's home without ruining them - if I'd come to the class alone it would have been really hard to get the train home! Also, the others in our class had purchased a more expensive package and it felt like the class was more catered to them as they had better quality materials so had to do things slightly differently, which meant we had to wait while they got started. Also the class was only 90 mins for us which I'm not sure represents as much value for money.

Sasi Yerrabolu Aug 2023


It was a nice 2 hours spent focussing on the painting. Very satisfying at the end of it and pleased to see the finished piece. The teacher was very helpful and provided guidance on how to go about the painting.

Monaé Aug 2023


Loved it, so relaxing and my teacher Rochelle was amazing, Melissa was so lovey and the atmosphere was peaceful and an all round lovely vibe! X

George Gretton Jul 2023


Never sent through the location. Our booking was cancelled the night before after we had made arrangements. They then suggested a new date we couldn't make. We asked for alternatives and they have now stopped responding:(

Teacher's response

Thank you, George, for sharing your experience. We apologise for the inconvenience caused. This has been refunded. Please reach out to us directly so we can assist you in finding a suitable alternative.

Connor Collard Jul 2023


The whole experience was brilliant, the venue was lovely and the teacher had a fantastic vibe and was very helpful.

Liam O'Callaghan Jul 2023


Very good experience. Well taught, and as a beginner I felt very supported in the process. Great that you have the option to have your pet sketched ahead of time to give you a good foundation to work from. The space was very generous and appropriate for the class and the painting tools supplied made it easy to complete the painting. Would highly recommend for a date activity or to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday.

Murooj Alamri Jul 2023


This class was amazing , our teacher Ilene was so sweet and kind and informative and made it easier for us. Would def recommend this class for anyone wanting to spend a relaxing two hours

Daniel Morris Jul 2023


A really enjoyable class. All the materials were provided including aprons. Would recommend to other people.

Lizzie Kaye Jul 2023


We had a lovely time at the celestial painting class. The teacher was very friendly and helpful, and gave clear instructions and lots of tips about each of our paintings as we went along. Our paintings look great, and we're basically beginners. Definitely recommend!

Jonathan Clarkson Jun 2023


Really good fun. The teacher was really nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend and will likely do another class again in the future

Shane Lewis Jun 2023


lovely team and a lovely class. Had my mum and my teenage sister visiting and this proved to be a perfect activity for the whole group.

Aimee Thompson Jun 2023


Loved everything about this class! So much fun, such a laidback, chilled vibe and the staff really made the experience - so friendly, welcoming and personable :))) I loved how they guided you but also left you to bring the artwork to life with your own spin - they really cheered you on and reminded you to trust your creativity. Also loved the venue and being based in a buzzy pub, but at the quiet nook on the side. Defo recommend this class - got really lost in the artwork and felt like meditation!

Jonathan Rutt Jun 2023


A lovely and enjoyable experience, which has motivated us to take up painting on a regular basis.

The only negative comment I have, is that the venue was a little cramped and dingy. The artist was very helpful.

Teacher's response

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear you had a good experience.

We did provide a separate room for the two of you and you had a private class with no-one in that part of the room for the price of a public ticket. We also provided additional bright lighting with a large lamp next to both of your canvases which in my professional opinion was well-lit for painting and seeing clearly.



Thank you.

Melissa

P.S. Thank you for taking the time to fix my painting when I dropped it into my palette!

Ana Guiote May 2023


We really enjoyed this painting class - it was in a great location, easy to find and very clear instructions. The teacher was helpful and prepared the sketches beforehand. I was very happy with the end result and now have a memory of my dog that I will always cherish. Would recommend the experience.

Jackia Mowla May 2023


The session was extremely fun and interactive, the teachers were superb and extremely patient. I felt very accomplished and proud of the artwork I produced! I've hung the artwork in the dining room!

Melissa Cain Apr 2023


A super fun class, the teachers were excellent. A really wonderful way to get the basics of a new painting / art method. I've since taken what I learned and done it at home with the kids and they loved it too.

Relaxing, therapeutic class. Helpful artist and overall enjoyable experience. I would recommend it to others.

Dorota Jagnesakova Mar 2023


I really enjoyed this experience, the environment was comfortable and everyone was very friendly. The teacher was lovely and helpful and made the experience feel natural and fun.

Maria-Letizia Bibra Feb 2023


The venue was nice (maybe a bit cramped) and the teachers were quite good. At times their instructions were a bit quiet but other than that it was fine. One thing I would improve is the packaging. I was led to believe we would get some more professional packaging but we were just told to put our wet canvases into pizza boxes. When I tried to remove them from the box after I got home the paint was stuck to the bottom of the box.

Maria Bucholc Feb 2023


The teachers were both EXCELLENT. And the class was very fun and good materials provided.

Angela Gillespie Feb 2023


Instructors were lovely, it was a great time and would definitely recommend to a friend

Katie Walsh Feb 2023


Teachers were great, really helpful and motivational. The venue wasn't the best just due to the lack of light as it got darker in the evening. Overall loved the experience

Matthew Jimoh Feb 2023


Really enjoyed it, the teaching was so helpful and peaceful, they take their time with you and we ended up with a really good piece of art

Anthony Nicholls Feb 2023


Myself and my partner had priceless memories to take away with a painting to match.

All the staff were great, but Melissa in particular was sensational she made my Valentines extra special; she was very helpful, pleasant and very understanding of our inability to draw a straight line let alone paint a masterpiece neither of us had painted since childhood :)

The venue was set in a classy winery with lots of space and drinks to choose from. Just walking distance from the local tube station.

The materials felt like good quality to the touch; canvases, paint and brushes etc!

I'd say on top of the painting tips we picked up, we were reminded its never too late to go back to passions from the past. Myself and my date are not 'creatives' but we felt very much involved in the session.

Elizabeth Moor Feb 2023


It was a fun class and nice that all abilities could do it. There was a massive mix in our session and Melissa managed to help everyone out. Would definitely do it again!

Apoorva Chiruvella Jan 2023


Overall good experience
Cozy location, easy to get to

Our teacher Sophia was very positive. Great energy and very helpful. Will definitely be taking more classes in the near future :) 10/10 experience

Stephen Chapman Jan 2023


Venue was good the class was fun. The teaching staff were all helpful, likeable, knowledgeable and encouraging. The teacher led the class well and the atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable. I believe everyone came away knowing they'd created at least one lovely piece of art.

Sara Kapasi Jan 2023


I booked this class for a bridal shower and it exceeded many of the groups expectations! All materials were provided and the location was in St Paul’s.

A happy and interesting experience. Thanks to Melissa encouragement and guidance, I now have a portrait of my beloved dog.

Paij Hamilton Dec 2022

Teachers were lovely, inviting and had great banter. It was a lovely evening out that had good vibes, plus the location of it being within a pub was different but great on access for drinks and snacks. Materials included were great and it was fun being creative and finding your inner artist. The only recommendation I would give is possibly a clear, plastic sheet or perhaps bubble wrap to be inside the boxes our art work was placed in to take home. The paint was still runny in the box after class ended and had spilled within it. It would be easier to remove the canvas from the boxes if there was a lining inside.
Apart from that, great class and I will be looking into more classes from the team :)

Harry Odell Dec 2022


Great teacher, let us stay a bit later behind time to finish up - gave good direction and even managed to keep it going when the venue had a power cut!

Sue Dixon Dec 2022


Great central location and a quiet, peaceful meditative 2 hours painting. Thank you Melissa x

Penny Crocker Nov 2022


Really good location. Very easy to follow but also able to put your own twist

My sisters and I took my mum for her birthday to the paint your pet class and we had a great time! Melissa was lovely and really helpful :)

Kay Arogundade Nov 2022


It was ok but it was advertised as a sip and paint which it wasn’t.
The teacher was nice but not overly informative.
I certainly didn’t feel it was worth the £38 and sadly I wouldn’t be going to another event again.

Sue Hopson Nov 2022


Loved this! Nice venue, easy to get to, lovely instructor who was very encouraging. Really fun activity to do with friends and good value. Would definitely recommend.

Anisha Gohil Oct 2022


I surprised my fiancé with this painting class for his birthday and we had a great time! Our teacher (Katie) was very friendly and showed us different painting techniques. A really fun bonding activity in a cosy setting. I would definitely recommend and I will certainly be going again :)

Raz Shaban Oct 2022


This class was both fun and relaxing. Our teacher Farida was very kind and helpful. I did not feel intimidated as a beginner. All materials were provided and got to take our paintings home. I will definitely do this again!

Ellen Glazebrook Oct 2022


Cute venue (above a pub) and encouraging and friendly teachers. My 2 canvases came out great and they provided us with boxes to transport them home which was handy.

Only thing was that the venue was a bit small and I could imagine in the summer very hot too!

Thomas Jepson Sep 2022


Great value for money - very enjoyable and pleased with the painting that came out of it.

The teacher was really friendly and helpful. The venue felt a bit boxed in but obviously because it was popular!

Theodore Lawson Sep 2022


Wonderful teacher and the class was great fun! Our class got rescheduled a couple of times, but they kept us up to date on what was happening and were very communicative/helpful!

Ravneet Sep 2022


I had great fun at this class. It was Lucy's first class and she was really friendly. I felt that the venue was a bit cramped for the number of people there, we couldn't move around at all in our seats. The instructions when painting weren't very clear either, one of the instructors started and then the other was painting something different which was a bit tricky. Overall, i enjoyed the session and the length but a few things could have been better.

Sevil Eminova Sep 2022


It was a fun date night! My partner and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It is a definite repeat for us!

Yvonne D'Souza Sep 2022


resourced well with everything needed.

Lovely environment and teacher, very good guidance, overall an enjoyable experience that would surely recommend.

Lisa Balderson Sep 2022


I enjoyed the class on the whole, but there wasn't much instruction from the teacher. It was more of a watch and do your best to copy. No instruction on technique, or changing brush type etc, just lots on blending the paint to make different colours. This is a beginners class, so a bit of instruction would be great. Overall, an enjoyable class.

Bianca Chavez-Novoa Aug 2022


We loved the class! The teacher was easy to follow, patient and encouraging. The venue was in a good location and the music wasn’t so loud that we couldn’t chat with the wider group. The materials were a good quality and we had lots of fun - recommend it.

Katarina Bednarova Aug 2022


We had an Amazing time! Awesome activity for a couple or a group of friends. We will definitely come back! Thank you

Melissa was brilliant - able to demonstrate techniques clearly and in a relaxed way. This enables you to enjoy creating your own work in a fun environment with the support of Melissa, who is able to give advice/answer questions when required. This is a really interesting and enjoyable experience. You will have fun!

My friend and I did the Harry Potter/Van Gogh painting class. Marian was a great teacher - really patient and provided lots of good suggestions. The class was a super chilled vibe as there were only 4 of us. We'll definitely do another class!

I had a brilliant few hours with Melissa at my class - she was friendly and was happy and patient to answer any questions if i didn't understand. i booked this class to understand the process of this kind of art and my husband said that he saw a huge improvement in the artwork i brought home so thank you Melissa - a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Hope to see you again.

The teacher Jemima was very very sweet and happy to help and support as much as necessary and also the venue is beautiful and the environment is friendly and relaxed, thanks to her help I managed to get to draw a much better picture than expected so I learnt a lot about basics of painting, and most of all we had lots of fun, I recommend it!

Patricia Wond Jul 2022


A great class, everything was well organised, Melissa and her 2 helpers were brilliant and demonstrated exactly how to do paint pouring. Great venue in the Natural Kitchen restaurant in the heart of St Katherines Dock. A really fun day out and I learnt a lot.

Lou Dossett Jul 2022


The teachers were really friendly and helpful. The venue offered a range of beverages and food. All of the materials were provided and there was a range of colours that you could choose from. I loved my finished pieces and look forward to displaying them at home. I would highly recommend and it's a lovely gift idea as it's a fun experience.

The room was lovely and the staff were helpful and friendly. We were both at ease immediately and surprised ourselves with our results. 10/10 would do this again.

We had a good time, went for a birthday treat. The teacher was so patient and guided us along the way.

Felt so relaxed after the session. It was first time painting for few of us, but she was a great help and encouraged us to be creative.

Absolutely loved the location - beautiful view. The teacher was lovely and really helpful in her instructions. Had a lot of fun :)

Natasha Trewman Jun 2022


A good experience and the teacher was lovely and went at a decent pace. However, there were no astronomy stories as was promised nor was there much explanation on what we were doing or why. Overall ok.

It was a good art session. The teacher went through each step clearly. It started a little later than expected. I was happy with the outcome.

Tanya Wells May 2022


Lovely venue and friendly teachers. It was a great experience if you are looking for something new to try in London.

Will Homewood May 2022


Teacher was fantastic, went round each person and guided us on what to do. Felt like I actually learnt some new painting techniques too!

This class was definitely for beginners and felt like more of a fun thing to do for a date/group of friends

Teacher was lovely and very helpful.

Loved the venue

Only thing we found was popular paints etc finished, so for next time, maybe more needs to be ordered.

Richard Lambert May 2022


Great venue. Instructors were very welcoming and helpful during the class. There was plenty of space and good choice of equipment and materials were provided. You can take your creations home in a large bin bag to prevent getting messy.

I had the most amazing time tonight! The teacher Katie was just so so lovely! I went to the event alone as it was my post-breakup gift for myself and when I shared this with Katie, she was just sooo nice about the whole thing and said the most loveliest words to me! Sweetest human being!

I was very nervous to go alone but Katie alongside the other painters made me feel so welcomed ☺ The venue was absolutely lovely too And I learned new skills with the paintbrush thanks to Katie!

Thank you Katie and classBento for a lovely Friday evening Would highly recommend And shall see you guys very soon for another painting session

Sheena Patel May 2022


The teacher was very talented and patient with all of us. Melissa guided us on how to mix paint correctly and gave the family a wonderful calming and relaxing experience.
The venue was at Natural Kitchen, Tower Hill. It was the perfect location and wonderful open venue. Lots of light and perfect music, not too loud and barely heard the other customers while they ate on the other side. Great area to paint and have drinks available next to the painting area.
We were provided with a blank canvas, 3 paint brushes and paint. Plenty of materials and of good quality.
The class was definitely value for money and i do hope the majority of the price goes to the Artist for setting up all the materials, cleaning up after the class and being so kind and patient throughout. The artist really deserves all the credit for running such a wonderful event.
We went as a family of four, parents aged 67 and us 35. This activity is suitable for everyone. We learnt how to mix paint and apply on the canvas according to each step of the drying process. It was very easy to follow, simple and calming. We have been recommending it to all our friends and family.

Was so much fun :) so well organised and she was a great teacher. Thanks Melissa

Really loved this class. Our teachers were very attentive and helpful. The venue was really nice. The quality of the equipment was also very good. I had a really lovely time

Mercedes Gleeson Apr 2022


We really enjoyed this painting pottery class as part of our friend's hen party.

We had two teachers in the session, and at the beginning of the class they seemed a little nervous but they soon warmed up and were very friendly and helpful. A few people leant on them for support with design and colours and they were very knowledgable.

The venue was really lovely – a big open restaurant with lots of healthy smoothies available. The only downside was that the staff at the restaurant were not very attentive, but that can't be helped by the class providers.

The materials provided were all fantastic quality and we got to paint and take home two items, so it was great value for money. Two of our friends could not attend on the day (one of which was due to covid) and we were told they could either book another class with them for free, or take the items home with them to do themselves - refund was not an option.

Overall, I would recommend Undergrounder for future crafting classes.

Juliana Niederwanger Apr 2022


The class was fun! We met at the back of a restaurant with all the materials prepared and provided. Rather than a 'class' with guidance from the teacher, it was 2 hours of painting whatever you wanted on two coasters and a small plate.

Enjoyed the venue, was very spacious with natural light. We had a private area in a restaurant so there was good access to bathrooms and food/drink which was nice. It was a small group so we got individual time from the teacher Melissa who was approachable and helpful. It was a fun and easy experience as all materials were provided and even bags to bring the art home in. Would definitely go again!

Peter Williams Apr 2022


Loved it, really nice happy atmosphere, and got great advice about improving my painting. Will go again, thanks

Jessica Lisowska Apr 2022


Had a great experience in this class! Melissa was helpful and welcoming. The session was well paced & the equipment was great and the space was cute! Definitely coming back! Worth it!

Vladimir Tsimaylo Apr 2022


Had a great experience on Saturday drawing my dog. Melissa and Katie prepared sketches in advance, which we then used as a template to paint. During the class we were given lots of tips to how to adjust the shades, light, add volume, improve the texture and even out the background. Having no experience in painting, we felt very proud of the results!

Emily Rance Apr 2022


We had a great evening doing the paint pouring and they all look fab! The instructors were lovely and up lifting when talking about our work and giving tips. The demos were interesting but a little bit slow I would say? I think everyone was just too keen to get going! They came to our office and bought plenty of supplies and covers to keep everything clean. I am shocked there isn't a drop of paint anywhere! All in all, an interesting activity and everyone had fun!
Thank you

My son loved the acrylic pouring class with Melissa! Melissa was very helpful, friendly and gave Maximus some good tips and advice on where to buy certain art products from. The location in St Katherine docks in the Slug and Lettuce was perfect. I was able to drink my tea whilst watching my son! I highly recommend Melissa who clearly is very talented, so anyone looking for a fun workshop with friends or going solo, hit her up! ( I know she provides other kinds of classes like Pottery too)

Sims Witherspoon Feb 2022


Loved our acrylic pouring class! Booked it as a fun Saturday date day, and it delivered :) Great venue too, because being in a bar meant we could grab drinks & snacks. We are hanging at least 2 of the paintings we came out with, so that's a bonus too.

John Finnegan Feb 2022


Melissa was a very friendly and encouraging tutor. All 3 of us had a great experience and created some lovely artwork to take home. Thank you!

Melissa was lovely. Purchased this as a surprise birthday present for our friend and she loved it. The 2 hours flew by and our paintings made a memorable gift. Don’t be afraid to be bold and try something different!

Great session, and great easy to access venue. We made 4 A4 size canvases that all represented a different technique of acrylic pouring. Fantastic for beginners who always wanted to try acrylic pouring, and need the first step to demystify this great way of making art. Thank you Undergrounder, it was a great afternoon.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a great one-to-one (unexpectedly) 2-hour session with Melissa on acrylic pouring! The class took place outdoors, which made a change! Melissa was clearly passionate about and knowledgeable of her craft- she would carefully explain and demonstrate the different pouring techniques before I was let loose with the paints. I loved the effects that were created from pouring and was very pleased with the four canvases of original artwork that I went home with!

Nina Tosmos Nov 2021


The idea is great. The location is great. But probably doesn’t fit complete beginners.
We’ve been given the colours, the brushes and an example of the picture we’re making. For the person who never held a brush that wasn’t enough. I was expecting to be given certain techniques or a guidance how to make it work.

Leonora Babi Oct 2021


Great experience! Definitely doing it again! I didn’t know I had it in me! It felt so natural to play with colours. I loved the fact that I was also free to paint my own interpretation and not strictly follow the instructions. Really lovely venue with a chilled, warm and rustic atmosphere. Mellissa was very friendly and she gently guided us throughout. Really good fun!

Martyna Marcinkowska Oct 2021


Had a great time paining a whale! Melissa held the space beautifully, with the right amount of reassurance and guidance when needed. It was quite therapeutic… wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Sonja McGeachie Oct 2021


I attended a small (4 students) painting class which was a lovely introduction to Bento, I had never been before. The atmosphere was welcoming and teacher (Melissa ) friendly and helpful. I was lucky that there was another person there who was into being social and chatty as otherwise it might not have been so nice. I would say that when there are only very few people -and especially couples who often don’t feel the need to be overly social as they have each other- it would be a good idea to have a little short icebreaker activity at the start and perhaps even ask people to not sit in the couple formation as its just easier then to chat. But it was a great experience and a lovely thing to do on a rainy afternoon. I recommend.

Noemi Poget Oct 2021


Definitely worth it! A small group of nice people willing to discover something new. There was both enough guidance provided and enough freedom given to try things. It was the first time I took a painting class and I really enjoyed it. The time was well managed too.
