Frequently Asked Questions

Here's everything you need to know about attending one of Cork & Canvas's events. If your question was not answered below, feel free to get in touch with us here.

 

What can I expect from a Cork & Canvas event?

Most importantly a FUN and CREATIVE evening. Your experience will start by arriving and checking in at the venue 10-15 minutes beforehand. Grab yourself a drink and apron from the bar, find your seat, socialise with your peers and get comfy before the session starts. 

We provide you with everything you need to complete your painting and one of our skilled artists will take you step-by-step through the featured painting of the session. Best of all, there is no experience required and all Cork & Canvas events are judgement free. 

After two hours of painting, drinking and laughing, you will have a completed your masterpiece that you get to take home with you! We also take photos throughout the night which we post to our social pages (Facebook, Instagram etc.) and no cleaning at the end of the night, we take care of all that.

How much is it and what's included in my session?

All Cork & Canvas events are $42 (incl. GST) per person. We provide all the necessary directions and guidance from one of our skilled artists as well as all painting supplies including canvas, paint, brushes and aprons. We also shout you your first drink at the bar, and you also get to take your painting home at the end of the night (woohoo). 

How do I register for a session? 

Simply head over to our booking page, click on the masterpiece you want to paint and fill out your details. You can pay directly through our website by using a nominated credit/debit card of choice, or If you wish to pay cash on the night, simply drop us an email to bookings@corkandcanvas.co.nz with your name and the date you wish to reserve your seat for.

Do I have to paint the featured painting? 

No way. The great thing about Cork & Canvas is the freedom to create a unique painting of your own. You're welcome to follow along with the artist or go your own way and create a one-of-a-kind. Add your own colours, shape, or textures to your painting to suit your home decor or personal preference, it's totally up to you! You'll be pleasantly surprised at how everyone's paintings come out different at the end.

What should I wear? 

We provide aprons that should protect you, but after a few glasses of wine and a whole lot of fun, you might find paint in unexpected places. We recommend wearing clothes you don't mind getting a drop or two of paint on. 

Do you hold group or Corporate events? 

Yes, absolutely. Simply send us an email to bookings@corkandcanvas.co.nz and one of our team will arrange a suitable time and venue for your needs. A Cork & Canvas event is great for any occasion.
