Held across the road from the back of Club Rivers in Littleton Street, each session costs from $49 to $65 a head (for private party at home) and for this you get your work station including instructor, seating, easel, paint brushes, paint, canvas and most importantly glassware for your favourite drop.
It’s important to note that to partake in the sip portion of the experience you will need to bring your own wine.
With bottles and brushes sorted, there’s only one thing left to organise and that’s the brie.
A cheese platter will fuel your creative fire and is the perfect accompaniment to this experience. You can bring your own nibbles, or purchase a Grazing Board (from $45 for two people) when you make your booking.
In between sips of wine, you’ll be painting anything from colourful or sombre scenes, a portrait of an animal in their native habitat or even your favourite flower. You’ll be instructed and encouraged every step of the way by your teacher and when you’re finished, you’ll get to take home your masterpiece.
Riverwood manager Kellie Thomas says the sessions, which started in July, have become popular quickly.
“They’re such fun for a social gathering like a hens night, family catch-up, birthday treat or even the ultimate date night,” she said.
“Everyone is always so pleasantly surprised at their results.”
