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.

In this popular live streaming class, your talented and supportive teacher Carlie Edwards will walk you through the fun process to paint your own beautiful Australian birds!

You’ll get to play with a range of simple watercolour techniques and special effects at home that will help get you relaxed and confident with this gorgeous medium, before creating your lovely watercolour bird artworks.

We’ll give you a series of bird templates to choose from, so there are no drawing skills required. This means everyone’s creations are different; you get to embrace your creativity and add your own artistic flair!

We love seeing your unique artworks, but for those who prefer to follow a step-by-step process, Carlie will walk you through one simple bird and one more advanced bird during the workshop.

Over two-and-a-half-hours hours you'll learn:

  • How to apply watercolours
  • Tools and techniques to achieve special effects
  • How to navigate ‘happy accidents’ and simple ways to make corrections
  • Colour mixing, colour theory and how to choose colours for your artwork
  • Tips to frame your brand new masterpieces!

The workshop will be delivered over an interactive Zoom session, with the option for your own complete watercolour craft box delivered to your door.

Painting tropical birds in loose, flowing colours is a beautiful skill to learn, and is the perfect way to introduce you to the mesmerising art of watercolour!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The paintbrushes supplied in the kit were easy to use & of good quality.
It is amazing the variety of paint colours you can create to apply to the birds. Carlie had her workspace set up so I had a clear vision of what she was demonstrating & explaining for each exercise. Thankyou.
