How do the Pub Workshops work?

The group meets at the Oxford Hotel thirty minutes before the workshop begins. This gives budding artists time to prepare their workspace, purchase their drink and snacks and relax as they get to know the other participants, before the workshop commences.

What does the workshop offer?

Participants are provided with a stretch canvas, paints and brushes to use along with painting tuition for approximately 2 and 1/2 hours. At the close of the workshop, cleanup is done and followed with time to relax and share ideas and experiences.
Participants must be 18 years and above. However, there are plans underway whereby Julie will be offering painting workshops for children who are budding artists. For further details please contact Julie.

Participants will leave with their completed canvas and a satisfied feeling of achievement whilst having a good time along with some laughs.

Participants are invited to enjoy a special meal at The Oxford Hotel before the workshops commence for $20. This is available on the night. You just need to mention you are a member of the Paint in the Pub Workshop.

With their relaxed atmosphere, the Paint in the Pub Workshops are ideal for small groups as team building exercises. And as Christmas is nearly here, gift vouchers will make an excellent gift.
