What is a paint and sip party?
A paint-and-sip party can be a social or private event, where all the guests have a non-fine art class with a professional art tutor. The guests can have wine, prosecco or other alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks. This party is all about having a great time, learning new skills and creating happy memories.
What type of paint party can you offer?
Hen do’s party
Girls night out
Mom’s night out
Team bonding parties
Team Building Events
Any kind of Tailor-made
Do I need any painting experience?
Our paint parties aren't fine art classes and no experience is required. We will lead you step by step on how to paint, so by the end of the event, you'll have a complete, lovely-looking painting.
Is there particular clothing I have to wear?
For our paint parties, we mainly use acrylic paints. This medium can easily be cleaned off any surface, hands and skin, but not off textile. We'll provide you with an apron; however, just to be safe, you may consider wearing something you don’t mind getting paint on.
What's included in my ticket?
The ticket includes everything you need for the paint party experience - all of the art supplies - canvases, paints, brushes, easels, aprons, palettes, water cups, napkins, table cloths, and a PA system for playing feel-good music as well as a wireless microphone so guests can hear us teach (this is for larger groups). The workshops last approximately 2 hours for classic and 3 hours for premium, led by an art instructor.
How does a paint party go?
Depending on the experience you choose to attend (classic or premium), we invite you to arrive approx. 30 minutes early, so you'll have time to socialise with other guests and your friends. We'll register you with your name and email and we can give you a loyalty card (if you don’t have one already). If you have one, we'll sign it for you, then grab a drink and make your way to the station you’d like to have. Seating is first-come, first-served, so coming early will always give you a better choice. We aim to start on time. If you're running late, you can quickly sit and pick up from where the rest of the guests are.
There will be a break of 15-20 minutes for refreshments where you can get more drinks & snacks. About 10-15 minutes before the party finishes, we'll take a group photo, so you can share your experience with other friends and family on social media. If you tag us, you can win a free ticket for one of our future events. More information about this during the paint party.
Often, we have door prices, so you can expect some lovely surprises.
Do you take pictures and videos during the paint party?
We’d love to capture all happy moments and share them with you and our happy community. We usually take pictures during the party, as we want to track the painting progress of our guests' paintings. We take a group picture with all guests and their gorgeous masterpieces at the end of the paint party.
If you follow us on https://www.instagram.com/merrimentatelier/ and https://www.facebook.com/merrimentatelier, you can see all the pictures and reshare them with your friends. If you don't want us to use your pictures on our social media, please let us know in advance.
Do you have any drinks included in the ticket price?
There are no drinks and food included in the ticket; however, sometimes we run special offers and you may get a glass of bubbly, wine or a cocktail. This will be included on the event description page.
