Learning calligraphy is a fantastic way to expand your artistic skillset, and our calligraphy craft kits are perfect for learning from home! Whether you are a seasoned artist looking to add to your abilities or a complete newcomer who just wants to make the Christmas cards look good, ClassBento’s new LiveBox classes can help you learn from home quicker and easier than ever before.

Calligraphy has been around for centuries, and learning it for yourself with one of our live classes online has a novella’s worth of benefits. Calligraphy kits are regularly used as a “mindful movement meditation” exercise whereby the concentration and discipline required to perfect it helps your brain get into a meditative state, and reduces overall stress and anxiety within the body. It has also been shown to improve cognitive function amongst older individuals.
Working through one of our low maintenance art and craft kits - such as calligraphy - is a therapeutic substitute to time you would otherwise spend meaninglessly scrolling through your phone! Once you’ve nailed the fundamentals with our craft box and accompanying live stream, you can practice with your calligraphy kit on the couch in front of the telly, or while you’re waiting for dinner to finish cooking. Seriously, a calligraphy kit is a wonderfully low-maintenance craft box that offers you a range of mental health benefits and an answer to the question of what to do when you’re bored!
Indulging in a calligraphy starter kit is both an exercise in patience and self-expression, but it can also save you money in the long run! Mastering a brush lettering kit is a fantastic way to reduce costs associated with planning big events, such as weddings and engagements. Everyone wants invites to look special, but doing them by hand - although a little more personal time is required - will save you money whilst adding a truly personal touch to your celebrations.
Calligraphy is a relatively inexpensive art form, with supplies and training setting you back a considerably smaller amount than other visual arts disciplines. With minimal materials required, you can start discovering calligraphy the moment you’ve got the brush lettering kit in your hand.
Calligraphy comes in all shapes and sizes (literally), but it doesn’t get much more colourful than this online workshop! Vanessa Opazo, Bondi resident and calligraphy expert, won’t just show you how to master calligraphy shape and form, but you’ll learn how to do all that using a variety of watercolour techniques!
With a craft box containing a high-quality watercolour set and accompanying brush pen (as well as paper and workbook, obviously) she’ll guide your hand via the live stream so you can transform your handwriting into something beautiful! Learning from Vanessa is a great way to cover a multitude of artistic bases, and picking up some fundamental watercolour theory will help you expand your abilities into painting and increase your theoretical knowledge, overall when looking for fun things to do at home.
This calligraphy starter kit is one of the most comprehensive live classes online we offer, as the price tag may suggest. But make no mistake, this is one of the craft kits for adults we swear by. Your craft box contains some of the highest quality calligraphy equipment available, and your instructor and calligraphy maestro Azalea will show you how to utilise it for maximum effect.
Learning how to appreciate high-end materials within the arts is important, but understanding how to make the most out of them is an entirely different ballgame. This calligraphy kit is not just perfect when looking for what to do when you’re bored, but a truly comprehensive guide to the calligraphy discipline and a worthwhile investment if you’re hoping to master the art form.
Looking for a calligraphy kit you can take online after the live stream is finished? Then this craft kit is perfect for you. This modern calligraphy class allows you to work entirely on your iPad using invaluable design software! This calligraphy kit is ideal for individuals who are interested in graphic design and growing their portfolio!
As mentioned above, this workshop is perfect for saving money when it comes to designing and creating specific invitations and events that require a professional touch on a smaller budget. This class also has no accompanying craft box, so you’ll have to provide your own iPad and required software, but it will still save you money in the long run.
Another class by the supremely talented Vanessa Opazo, this calligraphy kit is tailor-made for beginners of not just calligraphy, but the arts in general. Perfect for rainy day activities or what to do when bored, this brush lettering kit will give you the foundations of the discipline, whilst still giving you the freedom to express your creativity! Using high-grade Sumi calligraphy ink, you’ll master the art form whilst giving yourself a comprehensive understanding of all the calligraphy do’s and don’ts.
As far as our live classes online are concerned, taking advantage of our calligraphy kits and online brush lettering workshops are a fantastic way to stay sane during quarantine. Combining the benefits of meditation with artistic expression, mastering brush lettering and engaging with a calligraphy starter kit has so many therapeutic benefits. Whether it’s for enhancing your handwriting, expanding on skills you already possess, or you’re looking for a gift with a difference, our calligraphy kits are ideal for your rainy day activities.
