Vine & Canvas provide social painting events, some of which feature a selection of wines or complimentary refreshments. An energetic tutor guides the participants step-by-step through the process of recreating a painting chosen for a given night, following a 'sip a bit, paint a bit' routine. This increasingly popular concept combines an art workshop with casual entertainment, allowing anyone to hone their skills in a judgement-free atmosphere.
We had a fun afternoon and our hostess was very attentive. The only down side was that it was difficult to see the picture on the screen from where we were sitting.
A painting day at Vine and Canvas is a real treat.
Heather is so laid-back, no-one would guess how much work goes into preparing for a class.
Her teaching style soon dispels any anxiety the participants might have been feeling - a glass or two of wine helps, of course.
Heather demonstrates the painting process step by step and the class follows along - her maxim is that there is no such thing as "wrong" and each person will simply produce a different and very personal version of the original on the screen.
The time just flies past, with Heather demonstrating and encouraging every step of the way - the whole experience was fun and light-hearted, everyone had a finished painting to take home, and I would highly recommend a painting day to anyone needing a de-stress, as well as to anyone thinking they might like a taster session for an absorbing new hobby.
Really enjoyable experience! Amazing what you can achieve with a little bit of help!
Fantastic night and couldn’t speak highly enough of our hosts and artists Heather.

My friend and I had a great time. Great value, good atmosphere and it was great trying something different!
Great evening. Very relaxing. The two and a half hours flew by. Heather, our tutor, was really helpful and explained how we should paint our pictures. She was the perfect host keeping our drinks filled if required. Will definitely go back again.
