Learn to paint a unique pattern on your wine glasses
Once a thriving hotel in the late 1800's, the former Engineers Arms Hotel has had many owners and a variety businesses under its roof over the years. More recently purchased by a well-known Maryborough lady Anne Nioa, the Engineers Arms Hotel has been brought back to its former glory now housing accommodation for the owners upstairs, a restaurant in the back courtyard, hairdresser and massage salons, a liqueur bar in the front and in what was once known as the "Stables", an art gallery and studio named Art in Arms.

Art in Arms in owned by Hayley Groves George a mother of two who studied visual arts in 2010 and now runs Children's after school classes. As well, she specialises in adult social events such as "Girls Night Out", "Hen's and Birthdays Parties or for any occasion you wish.
Wine Glasses are not the only item that can be painted
For a mere price of $35.00 you can organise a group of your friends to partake in learning the art and having fun in painting two wine glasses whilst sampling the luscious range of liqueurs and enjoying a yummy cheese platter. There is a minimum of four people per booking; however I don't think that would be hard to achieve. Glasses are fired so they are dishwasher safe.
Wine glasses are not the only item that can be painted. For one who makes jams and condiments, Hayley awakened by imagination as I noticed plain jars, which most of us throw in the recycling bin once their contents have been used, were also being painted. Wouldn't it be lovely to give a bottle of strawberry jam to your friend with a strawberry painted on the outside as an added personal touch.
