Art attack!

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 29th July 2021

From clay and rosé to yin and gin, combining crafternoons with a tipple is everyone’s new favourite thing to do! But you can’t go past the OG pairing – a paint and sip is not only a fab time, but the tried-and-true activity that will have you leaving with a work of art you can actually be proud of.

Whether you want to paint your pet or let your inner Van Gogh go, we’ve found Brisbane’s best paint and sips so you can dip right in!

Brush & Barrel | Newstead

Brush off your worries and dip into this paint party! A night out at Brush & Barrel will have you connecting over a glass of wine, and leaving with a stunning original painting that fills you with a sense of accomplishment every time you pass it on your wall. From tropical sunsets to funky pineapples and even their take on the Mona Lisa, you’ll find the Picasso waiting inside you in no time!

Cork & Chroma | South Bank & West End

Don’t pay big bucks on a gorg piece of art when you can just paint it yourself at Cork & Chroma! The kind and talented team here are all about making creative processes more accessible, so they’ll help you channel your artistic energies with a vino in hand. You BYO and they’ll supply the rest, during the three-hour step-by-step classes. They also love celebrating your special occasions, so you can lock in a private event, or bring the littles for a family session with BYO non-alcoholic drinks.

Catch her bombarding her friends with articles she thinks they should read or spending way too much time creating the perfect playlist.
