This is a ClassBento LiveBox class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or just enjoy with some like-minded others. As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft box containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 7-14 days. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device - smartphone, tablet or laptop. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Join this live streaming class to learn the basics of contemporary hand lettering using brush pens.

In this fun and hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the foundations of brush lettering using a brush pen. The class will begin with an introduction to this form of modern calligraphy and will quickly progress into a fun and practical workshop where you will learn how to create different pressures and strokes with your brush pen.

Perfecting brush lettering is all about practice, so you’ll go through a series of writing exercises to familiarise yourself with the eight main strokes that are used when creating the alphabet in uppercase and lowercase.

Our experienced teacher will be there to help you along with live demonstrations and one-on-one guidance as you work through the foundations of brush lettering. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with all of the skills to practice at home and surprise your loved ones with beautiful handwritten creations.

All materials and paper will be provided and are included in the course fee – including a 10-pack of brush markers for you to take home.


Please note: This class requires a minimum number of students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class; in this case, we'll inform and fully refund you, so please watch your email/SMS 1 day prior to the class

Alena was a terrific teacher, she has a friendly approach with clear instructions and encouraging with her critique of student's first attempts of brush lettering.
Part of the reason I was interested in this was to have more control over my own signature and erratic writing and already this class has worked a treat. Big thanks!
