Watercolour Painting Class with Wine

Drink wine and learn watercolour painting for beginners



2 hours Class size 1 to 16     label $60 - $65 ($65 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $60 for 2+ guests)

This is a two-hour workshop aimed at complete beginners or those who have some drawing and painting experience. You will learn practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, whether you want to use this medium for illustrative work, typography or fine art painting.

This workshop will focus on creating a single composition of a variety of succulent plants from an aerial or side perspective. With a plethora of examples seen across creative, wellbeing and home magazines and media, get in on the trend and create your own masterpiece to frame and hang on the wall. We will be drawing from both live plants and also sourced photos.

You will be introduced to observation skills, drawing and composition methods and watercolour application. This workshop is for any artistic skill level, with all materials supplied. Plus, you'll finish up with your own gorgeous artworks to take home!

Please note: This class requires at least six students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



What you'll get
  • Use of quality watercolour paper and painting materials.
  • And of course, wine to get those creative juices flowing! (We provide a red and white wine, feel free to bring something different if you prefer).

What to bring

Just yourself and a willingness to experiment. BYO nibbles to have during the call is welcome!

Growing up in Byron Bay, Vanessa spent innumerable hours of her youth engrossed in artmaking and creative adventures. She began her professional life as a Graphic Designer working for advertising agencies both in Australia and the UK. She now holds separate tertiary qualifications and professional experience in Design, Visual Arts, and Education, relishing the opportunity to work in arts industries.

As a practising ceramic artist, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour.

Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. Weaving her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking, Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.

Hannah Gilroy Feb 2021


I took my mum and sister along to the watercolour class and we had a great time. The venue was pretty hot but after a few glasses of wine it didn't matter. Vanessa was lovely and showed us the basics in a quick demo then we were free to try ourselves. She encouraged us to pick pictures for inspiration and checked up on us with pointers and wine refills all night. The whole class left me feeling more confident in my painting skills and ready to try more.

Danielle Arriola Sep 2020


Vanessa's watercolour class was a perfect way to spend an evening. The class was relaxed, and Vanessa was a great source of information and advice for a complete beginner like myself. I thoroughly recommend this class for anyone interested in watercolour, or just looking for a fun way to wind down after work!
