This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Does paper mache stir up memories of claggy, thick, mushy impossible stuff that goes mouldy? It just doesn’t have to be like that! Paper Mache is an amazing material to build all kinds of things, fruit bowls, funky light fittings, sculptures, mardi gras masks - just about anything! Come along and try out this wonderful technique and create something awesome. No prior experience necessary.

There’s a better way to construct paper bowls and this class will show you how. Make and decorate a bowl while you learn this super easy and quick mache technique.

What will we cover?

  • We will make a paper mache bowl decorated with something personal and meaningful to you.
  • You will learn a simple technique and there will be no claggy porridge!
  • We will give you tips on more projects you can continue with.

I have a mountain of vintage books and cuts I will include in the box, that I have collected for years. I hand pick each one and sometimes find them hard to let go! If you have any special books to cut up or old images bring them along to incorporate in your design. As long as they are matte (for the best results.)

In all cultures, ceramic vases and bowls have always been used to commemorate, a wedding, an anniversary or any significant event. The Ancient Greeks depicted epic battles, Keats wrote an ode to an Urn and now an artist like Grayson Perry explores his past on the surface of a vase. We are inviting you to celebrate and create a story on a bowl, use images and type, quotes from your favourite novel or fragments of a poem….but on paper mache not porcelain.

You can add these when you book (optional).

I have had the best life ever, following my passions. I have worked as a script editor and writer and been a course leader and senior lecturer in the UK in film and TV and before that I was an illustrator and artist.

For the last 5 years have become increasingly interested in informal learning. I run classes around Sydney in different venues and concentrate on my passion of growing succulents, art and the art of teaching. I go by the name classbunny.

I really enjoyed this class. The teacher was super friendly and gave very clear instructions. The kids in the class were very engaged. I would recommend this class for all young people and of course adults. I have most materials left over so might make myself a larger bowl. Always looking for something different to do during lockdown. It was a fun class.

Pamela showed us how easy it was to make a beautifully decorated bowl that we could either use for ourselves or give as a gift. The different patterns and decorations that people came up with were just beautiful!
Pamela is a friendly and patient teacher, and goes through each process step-by-step.
Thanks for yet another great class.

Such a great class. Enjoyable. Pamela is such a generous teacher and the supplies that she sent were beautiful.

Lizz Robb Jun 2020


This was a wonderful class that taught us how to make delightful papier Mache bowls. Pamela was absolutely great. I unexpectedly had two grandchildren with me. Pamela graciously accommodated them.
Pamela was very generous with the beautiful materials she supplied us with. They took my breath away.
Pamela was very clear and took great pains to work with us at a pace we were comfortable with. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the course.

As an adult educator myself, I give Pamela 10/10.
