WHAT'S THIS PAINTING & SIPPING ALL ABOUT?

Forget Karaoke, trivia nights and the traditional pub scene, painting and sipping is now where it's at. With a glass of wine in one hand and a paint brush in the other you'll enjoy 2 hours of non stop fun, laughs and creativity. Our classes are designed for beginners so no experience is needed as one of our teachers will guide you step by step through the painting design. To secure your seat head over the booking page - we can't wait to have a vino with you soon!

Below are the most common questions we get asked:

CAN I PURCHASE ALCOHOL AT THE SIP STUDIO?

No, we are a BYO only venue - this includes wine, beer and bottled alcohol.

WILL FOOD BE PROVIDED?

You are more than welcome to BYO your own nibbles. Our table space is limited so we suggest only bringing small items. Cutlery and glassware are provided, we also have a fridge for your beverages. If you have booked a private event with us we have a dedicated space for a grazing table.

ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED AT THE SESSIONS?

To attend the public sessions you must be 18 years of age or over, however if you book a private event minors can attend. 

We also run school holiday classes check our session times for more details.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE COST OF A SESSION?

Everything you need is included in the cost of the session - the only thing you need to bring is your favourite alcoholic beverage! Your paint session will consist of a 40 x 50cm canvas, acrylic paints, brushes, easel, apron, glassware, water and our talented art teachers to guide you through the session. 

WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR THE SESSION?

We advise you to arrive 10-15 minutes early for the class so you can settle in, pour a glass and unpack your nibbles. There will be a few breaks in between to stretch, pour more wine or mingle with other class mates.

If I COME WITH A FRIEND OR GROUP CAN WE SIT TOGETHER?

Of course, if you book multiple seats we will make sure you are all seated together but if you have booked separately let us know beforehand (send an email or text 0411 227 159).
