Introduction

At 62%, Australia has one of the highest household rates of pet ownership in the world, with around 5.7 million of Australia's 9.2 million households including one or more pets. The question is - are you one of those 5.7 million, and do you have a cat or a dog?

If you've answered yes to both of the above, then this upcoming event may be of interest to you - because it'll allow you to bring your beloved pet to life by sculpting them out of clay!

Details

For just $65 for two sessions in a fortnight, you'll be able to hand sculpt your pets out of air dry clay in the first week, before bringing them to life with paint the following week. Plus, if you book in a group of 10 or more painters, you get 10% off - which means it'll only cost $58.50 per head! Click here to make a booking to secure your spot today.

If you're worried because you haven't worked with clay before, don't stress - because the professional staff at Cork & Chroma will be walking you through every step of the way with verbal instructions and physical demonstrations. Besides, it's the personalisation and unique qualities based off your knowledge of your furbabies that will make it a great piece of art, so be ready to surprise yourself!

Once you've perfected the clay version of your pet, have a go at some creative photography and staging your pet's world in the 'Pet Park' Insta-booth provided by Cork & Chroma for some added fun!

Oh... and perhaps most importantly - you can BYO drinks to really make the night perfect!

Loving our final products!



My Experience

The two weeks were a whole heap of fun, especially with my group of equally dog crazy girls! There were times when we really questioned our artistic talents... and times when the model we were working on looked nothing like our dogs... but we all got there in the end, in the name of good fun. I would love to do this again, this time modelling my other dog just so I can have a complete pair of my "Terrible Two"!

Art classes are more fun when done with friends!
