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 you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. 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.

Once you learn how to draw letters and words with watercolours… compositions are next! You will learn how to create compositions in this live online class, with Vanessa Opazo from Bondi Letters and invited guest artist Bea from Bea Lettering.

Watercolours are a great medium to create amazing hand-lettered pieces because you can use them both for the words and for flowers, leaves, and other cute decorative elements that always help to enhance those words. Compositions can be intimidating though - no one likes to face a blank piece of paper - but we are here to help!

In this live online class, you’ll learn the basic steps to create compositions, and how to apply them to your favourite quote. Of course, letters (and words) are the main element in the composition, but we will also show you lots of different doodles that anyone can draw, to make your hand-lettered piece even more beautiful.

During the class, we will also discuss colour palettes and how to choose colours that work well together. And, of course, we will go over the whole process of applying them, from the pencil sketch to the finishing details.

By the end of this class, you’ll have a gorgeous hand-lettered and decorated quote, ready to frame or wrap as a gift for your dearest ones. Plus, you’ll have the skills to recreate it with music lyrics, sayings, or even your daily affirmations… the possibilities are endless!
