    • What can I expect from a Paintvine 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 Paintvine 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.

      Are your events R18?

      Yes, unfortunately for all public events (ones we sell on our website) we host at bars or restaurants are all age restricted to R18 and over. For events that we hold in public spaces (such as parks or beaches) there is no age restriction. For Private events, this is a case by case basis fully dependent on our partner venues.

      Will I receive a ticket?

      Our events are all ticketless. Your details are noted at purchase and will be checked at the door/event entry when you arrive. However, to make this process quick please have your event purchase details ready when you check in to your Paintvine event.

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

      All Paintvine events vary and the current price is on the event itself. 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. For some events we'll include your first drink in the ticket price, and you also get to take your painting home at the end of the night (woohoo).

      Do I have to paint the featured painting?

      No way. The great thing about Paintvine 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 and one of our team will arrange a suitable time and venue for your needs. A Paintvine event is great for any occasion.
