This workshop was the best way to spend a creative morning. The venue is perfect with a great vibe. Vanessa is lovely, patient, easily approachable and very helpful. It was a reduced number of people in this class due to covid, which actually was nice as Vanessa had more time to give feedback to everyone. All materials were provided and they were nice and easy to use, and perfect to take home and keep practicing. I felt like the time was flying during the workshop! I got a lot of personalised tips from Vanessa and she really made us all excited about brush lettering. I highly recommend this workshop, whether in-person or online.

Calligraphy Workshop: Breathe Your Words Out


This workshop is very well paced, structured, all the material such as the crystal with our name and ‘word’ that we received are personalised. It’s a very well planned and thought out workshop which is beyond my expectation. Not only I learnt how to do calligraphy but also had a chance to tap into my inner intuition during the workshop. It’s highly recommended and now my friends are asking when the next one is! Can’t wait to do another one with Vanessa from Bondi Letters!

This was a great class. Vanessa broke down all the brush stokes and each individual letter to make it feel like anyone can calligraphy (the class name is very suitable). The craft kit was well put together and fun to receive in the mail. Vanessa is a great teacher and very approachable.

Brush Lettering with Watercolours


Vanessa is a great teacher. The workshop was fun, and she was very friendly and open, giving us lots of tips. She taught us starting from the basics. It's great for people who get overwhelmed by all the YouTube videos and materal available online (like me). The online workshop went very smoothly with no hiccups. The box of material arrived very fast and it was well packed and very cute I highly recommend this workshop. Look at this picture of my before and after!

This class was really well put together, every detail was thought about (including sending already filled water brushes in the kit). Vanessa was a great teacher so accommodating and she explained things in a very easy and simple manner. I thoroughly enjoyed this class. In this class the Vanessa breaks down the different brush strokes of brush lettering and shows you some ways water coloring is fun. Great class would recommend to others.

Wow this was such a fun and educational event It exceeded all of my expectations. Vanessa is an incredible teacher who is extremely passionate about what she does. The location was in a beautiful little room at the back of a lovely cafe. They offered complimentary tea and coffee in the beginning of the event. Vanessa works with the group but also goes around and makes sure everyone is on track. she teaches you little tricks to master your brush lettering skills and every single person walked out of that room with beautiful written calligraphy I have already recommended this class to many of my friends and I will certainly be coming back for another class again. Thank you Vanessa

A really calming and fun class! I got a beautiful non-plastic straw gift to use (love!) and some other goodies. Really liked the snacks provided and the lychee tea! This is my first time learning brush lettering and I really enjoyed it. I hope to keep practising and get better!

Gina Holbrook

Anyone Can do Brush Lettering Workshop


This was my first experience with Class Bento and with brush lettering. At first I was a bit unsure about going but I’m so glad I did.

Vanessa was a wonderful teacher and made everyone feel welcomed and relaxed. She demonstrated each skill and then spent considerable time assisting every student. I appreciate that she’s also quite environmentally conscious and she donated the profits of this workshop to helping wildlife affected by the bushfires.

We first learnt about creating a lovely range of colours with our water colour palette. Then we learnt to create strokes which we later combined to form letters and words.

All the materials were provided for and we got to take home our brushes, palettes, watercolours and worksheets so that we have everything to continue practising our new skills at home.

The class is held in an airy, bright and air conditioned private room behind a cafe. Not familiar with the area I found it hard to park so perhaps leave extra time to park if you’re driving there.

Thanks for the lovely class, gift and snacks Vanessa! Hope to attend another one of your classes in future.

The workshop was lovely, as the teacher! Vanessa has a lot of dedication into the detail and gives you tips very helpful about how to improve in the case you want to keep doing it. Don't hesitate to ask her any doubt, she will answer you so kindly and very concern that you'll get the proper answer.
I highly recommend the workshop, it gives you the basics to start doing brush lettering and is a goo way to be mindful for a few hours and focus in what you are doing.

Sam Neilson

I had the best time learning a new skill in brush lettering. Vanessa our teacher was super helpful, attentive, and knowledgeable. We learnt basic techniques in brush lettering and for someone like me who does not feel they have any confidence in their creative side this was a lot of fun! Vanessa really took the time to help. Hosted in a studio room adjoining a cafe the environment was super relaxed. The starter gifts Vanessa also sent us home with were a thoughtful touch and will definitely help with keeping up the practice! Highly recommended

Vanessa is a talented teacher, she covered everything from the very basics one step at a time.
The final result came easily and it was quite impressing considering I haven't handled a brush since primary school!
I think Vanessa could probably teach elefants to fly, if only they wanted to!

Vanessa is a great teacher, friendly and goes over all the relevant information like the materials itself and how to get good lines. It was a lovely location & the time just flew by. It’ll take practice to get good at it, but Vanessa teaches you all the fundamentals to continue practicing at home. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in learning calligraphy :)


Lauren Hancock

Vanessa provided an excellent introduction to brush lettering and the use of water colours. She explained things very clearly, and slowly built up our knowledge over the hour and a half. I still need much practice (have a hard time getting the angles right!), but could certainly see some improvement by the end of the class. Thanks Vanessa :)

Ruth Bajo

Brush Lettering with Watercolours


For an introductory class, Vanessa covered pretty much what a newbie would need to kickstart their curiosities for brush lettering. A super pigmented watercolour palette was provided in the craft kit, along with handouts, awater brushpen and a couple of sheets of watercolour paper.

Her love of brush lettering and sharing her knowledge was reflected in her enthusiam and confidence during the workshop. Her method of teaching basic strokes helped me to get a better understanding of how to 'draw' each letter.

Keep at it Vanessa!

Vanessa is the funniest and most creative person I have met. I've been to two of her workshops and I enjoyed them so much! She is so passionate and will dedicate herself to explain and teach you properly. Time flew playing around with colours and writing the prettiest words, applying love and mindfulness. What I loved the most was that I was so present in the moment and being there just took me back to school homework and love letters hehe and I also loved very much my Vitamin Sea bag!
Thank you Vannesa!

I have truly enjoyed this amazing workshop. It was my first time trying brush lettering and to my surprise, I was actually pretty good at it. But I think it is also thanks to an amazing teacher Vanessa who was so lovely, explained everything and guided us all the way. The venue was beautiful, and with access to the cafe from where we got coffees and juices (already included in the package). Vanessa has also prepared some cheese, fruit and snacks. We also got to keep all the materials and received a beautiful bag as a present. What a great value! Overall all it was a very inspiring and super relaxing experience and I highly recommend it.
