Unwind with a paint and sip class

With no experience necessary, you’ll be encouraged to either sip on a glass of wine or non-alcoholic drink for the non-drinkers in the party and have fun whilst painting your own version of a modern masterpiece.
We love the paint your partners paint and sip class. Simply get a photo of your partner before the class starts on your phone and learn how to paint them during the class. You could play a little joke and all paint the hen’s husband to be. Imagine the look on her face when you all reveal you’ve painted him! It will be a good wedding present for the groom! Alternatively, you could opt for the paint your pet class instead! Paint your loving pet and feel proud of being able to hang your painting proudly at home, remembering what an awesome hens party it was too.
