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.

It is easy to become frustrated and despondent when starting out with watercolours. Beginner's classes often consist of endless colour wheels you don't quite understand before you even get to paint a thing. But there are some fun hacks you can learn, to get results fast. Use of pattern and colour and blending can create something appealing and worth putting in a frame.

This live streaming class will get you started painting flowers, leaves, shapes, patterns and textures from the get-go and is lots of fun and absorbing. It is also the perfect Mother's Day class!

You have the option of ordering the class with a box of materials or if you already have watercolour paints and paper you can use them.

- You will learn how to put a beginners kit together on the cheap
- Find out about materials and grades of paper and watercolour
- And most importantly start painting and loosening up!

This is a perfect gateway class for beginners

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.

Easy to understand and keep up with the lesson. Learning the basics for different techniques was very helpful.

Lisa Turley • Sep 2020


Pamela gave really clear, easy-to-follow instructions and good demonstrations of all of the techniques in this class, plus a great rundown of materials both in the kit and that we might like to try in the future. Thanks for an enjoyable session! I particularly liked the cherry tree and the explanation of how to do background gradients.

A very enjoyable class! It was perfect for absolute beginners, as we learnt basic techniques but still produced a finished artwork at the end I’m keen to keep playing with my new skills!

Sean Flegeltaub • Sep 2020


I thoroughly enjoyed Pamela's class today. Though it was held virtually, it was well planned in advance. I received the water colour painting kit weeks beforehand and was given things to prepare before the class.

Pamela shared great tips for beginners and I'm excited to continue to learning how to colour paint. Thank you for a great experience.

Barbara Li • Aug 2020


I had so much fun with the class. Kept practising after the class had finished and signed up for another one by Pamela. Definitely give it a go.

Shaw Group • Sep 2020


Pamela was a fantastic teacher for this class, carefully demonstrating various methods of painting, and the tyles of supplies that are available. It was the perfect class for an absolute beginner, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learnt in this 2 hour session. Highly recommended! Thanks Pamela.

Bridgette Sulicich • Jul 2020


Such a great class with Pamela, it was so easy to follow along and I’m so happy with my final peonie. We had a lot of fun and would definitely do a class with her again.

Kate Letheren • Jul 2020


Had a lovely class with Pamela. We learned a range of techniques that I’ll be able to use again. Everything ran smoothly, not too rushed. Pamela has two cameras set up so one was focused on her workspace while she spoke into this other camera. This was really effective and meant I didn’t miss anything.

Rini Ismail • Jul 2020


Pamela is a wonderful instructor. She gave great tips on equipment and paper required and recommended supplier. She taught various watercolour techniques in that short span of time.

This was a fantastic introduction to watercolour. We learnt a bunch of different techniques as well as what to look for when buying supplies like paper and paints. We all painted a flower, and Pamela was able to give us individual advice through as well. A solid interactive class.

Fiona Stasiukynas • May 2020


It was a great class. I liked trying all the different techniques on the sample board. It will be my reference now. Pamela’s overview of the basics and instructions for applying the paint were clear and her enthusiasm for watercolour was inspiring. I believe my skills will grow - as I practise :)

Marina Buscaino • May 2020


I was a total watercolour painting beginner and this class was a lot of fun. Pamela was clear and her introduction to different methods of painting was great.

Yvette Haller • May 2020


Great class, I really enjoyed it everything was provided and Pam is a great instructor. Good techniques to practice with now.

Lisa McNamee • May 2020


It was a great class and a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Pamela was very informative and passed on some wonderful techniques. Im hooked!

Vania Chew • Sep 2019


The absolute beginner's watercolour workshop was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. The beginning activity was a great way for us newbies to practise various watercolour techniques and begin feeling comfortable with holding a paintbrush. All art supplies were provided and a hot drink from the downstairs cafe was included in the cost as well. Pamela did a good job of demonstrating the techniques simply and effectively.

Suggestion for improvement: the taping down of papers for the beginning activity seemed to take considerable time and could be something that was prepped for students before the workshop.

India Cornish • Sep 2019


This was a great class. Materials were provided which was really helpful considering we were all beginners. The teacher was friendly and knowledgeable. Great value for money. Definitely recommend.

Elizabeth Klerk • Sep 2019


Very nice class, great day out learnt a lot off techniques. Pamela is a very knowledgeable teacher
