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.

From the tropical Daintree rainforest, to our own backyard gardens, there’s a myriad of Australia’s own native fluttery friends that are begging you to paint them!

In our newest exciting watercolour workshop, you’ll learn some cool, creative and fun techniques to paint some of your favourites from sweet Blue-Banded bees, flamboyant Ulysses Butterflies, alluring ladybirds and elegant Tiger Dragonflies; what a wonderful celebration of Australia’s own beautiful little fauna (yes – we never knew a blue bee existed either!)

Watercolour and its loose, fluid style is a beautiful skill to learn, and our workshops are a perfect introduction to this gorgeous medium, even if you’ve never tried it before.

Join Aussie illustrator Carlie Edwards as she first guides you in a practice session on mixing colours, brush techniques, layering, special effects and how to add detail to your final piece. Then the fun begins; choose from a range of insect templates included in your kit to create two of your own masterpieces during the workshop.

Enjoy playing with vivid colours to bring our well-loved fluttery friends to life, as Carlie walks through a simple painting and a more advanced painting. Choose to follow along step by step, or get creative with your own colour combinations.

We love that everyone’s results are always unique, and this workshop encourages creative expression to have fun with whatever colour choices you like!

You'll be equipped with a myriad of new skills to "wow" your friends with a beautiful handpainted card or gift, or create some gorgeous new artwork to frame on your wall!

Pour yourself a glass of something delicious and get comfortable to enjoy this mindful painting activity. You'll get lots of help throughout the class to ensure you get the most out of your experience and produce a lovely piece of insect artwork to be proud of.

Carlie was fantastic - engaging, fun and very patient. Most of all we learnt lots of new techniques and caught the water colour bug. A fun session!

Loved the online class, sorry I had to leave a little early. I’m definitely looking forward to the birds. A longer pre recorded class involving more detail on the insects which I could work on at my own pace, I would be very interested in.

The teacher is so talented. What she can do with watercolours is astounding. The class is fast paced, but very enjoyable. A replay is provided for practice which is great. Thankyou Carlie for opening up the beautiful world of watercolour painting
