We did the painting class for our end of year celebration. I must say what a great time everyone had. Some were worried about their ability to paint before but were soon feeling relaxed about what they could achieve. Our teacher Imagine was so friendly and relaxed. We had ample materials to do the job.
The dome room was a great space and there was plenty space to spread out, it was a hot day and the air con was very welcome.
They only thing I could say was a negative on the day was the stairs up to the room, but I know this is will change soon.

Pleasant painting space albeit a little crowded. Excellent teacher. Knows her stuff, warm and encouraging. It was the second time I had done this particular workshop and there was more active teaching in the first which I liked. Definitely not paint by numbers!

Kate was really wonderful at guiding us through colour palettes, brush marks and shapes, and encouraging us all to unleash our creativity. I took home a painting I was really happy with. Highly recommend.

Absolutely fantastic way to start, or restart, your adventure with painting. We received advice and guidance but encouraged to do what felt right. The result? 20+ paintings that were beautiful, unique and full of the person that painted them!
I'll be back!

The teacher Kate was excellent at explaining how to paint and how to best use the mixing of paints for desired effect. Ended up with a lovely canvas to hang on my walls.

The teacher has been a school teacher and it shows, she explains everything clearly and is encouraging at all times.
This is the second class I've been to at this location and I've always been happy with it. Everything is provided and is good quality.
Having been before, I came prepared with some cheese and crackers to have with a drink, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Violet Ames  •  Oct 2019

The teacher was great although because of class sizes I never really got a chance to get her help as there was so many of us she never got around to everyone. A shame because I was so looking forward to attending this class and having a chat to the teacher. The class was packed full of way too many people for such a tiny space! You literally cannot walk to your bag at the back of the room, we were literally all elbow to elbow. It says on the website for other people not to bring snacks etc especially if it's going to interfere with the space of others. Well, many of the other women who attended brought lots of big containers of food that they put on the table rudely almost knocking my canvas off twice! The teacher and paint bar took photos from our class during the session and said we would get copies sent to our email addresses at the end of class but I didn't receive anything. I contacted the paint bar directly about this and got no help or reply. I have attended a few paint classes now and this one was by far the most underwhelming and unenjoyable I have attended. I should also mention that my review in no way reflects a problem with the teacher, she was great! More the space and others that affected my experience. But because of this experience I wouldn't attend this space for classes again.

Andrea Cannon  •  Oct 2019

This was awesome. As a beginner who hasn't painted before I was amazed at the end result. The teacher was terrific and everything was supplied except the wine. Good to sip and paint. Keen to try my hand at another painting now.

Helene Luetchford  •  Oct 2019

Teacher was fantastic, felt the class was a little big for the space but overall there was enough freedom to explore with the painting which I enjoyed compared to the other classes at the same venue.

Natasha Zietsch  •  Oct 2019

Kate's class was beyond amazing. She guided and encouraged us on a creative journey. It was so nice to walk into a fully set up space and enjoy the time to unwind. Being able to walk away with such a large artwork for such a reasonable price, was great. Would recommend 100%

Wonderful teacher . Made even the most inexperienced feel comfortable and all produced a product to be proud of. Would do again for sure. Loved it!

Callie Piszczuk  •  Oct 2019

Three hours of great fun. I have NEVER painted before, but will definitely be back. Our instructor was helpful, encouraging and easy to follow. There were a great variety of paint colour choices and brushes to choose from. I mostly went for fun with friends and was most surprised that I walked out with my own creation that I really like and plan to hang on the wall!

Excellent venue friendly service, all materials provided.
The artist Kate Pittas was a wonderful teacher and made it really fun and creative. Her art is inspiring and her ability to share her technique and ideas easy to follow.

Mandy Heit  •  Sep 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed the Botanical Wonderland paint & sip class with the lovely Kate Pittas! Highly recommend getting together with a few friends to attend this workshop. Kate offered the participants friendly and skilful guidance throughout the afternoon. I'm looking forward to creating another Botanical Wonderland masterpiece soon!
