How we are hosting Covid Safe Events for you

Bringing you back together, safely

Since 2017, our mission has been to bring every Kiwi together to rediscover and nurture their joy for creativity in a non-judgemental environment with friends and family alike.

Because of COVID-19, we're adding safe to that environment too. Bringing you together safely is our core mission from now on.


IMPORTANT: Update for the new Covid-19 Protection Framework

  • The recently announced Covid-19 Protection Framework means that during any traffic light situation, Red, Orange or Green Paintvine events can go ahead so long as all ticket holders present a valid vaccination certificate, or exception.
  • If you are unable to present a valid vaccination certificate, or exception, you'll likely be denied entry and you will not be entitled to a refund.
  • Getting vaccinated means that we can come together safely once again. We look forward to seeing you back at our events. Bring it on Aotearoa 🚀 


What are we doing to ensure your safety?

  • Paintvine is taking the appropriate measures to ensure your safety at all of our events. 
  • We work closely with all of our bar partners to ensure that they are abiding by the rules and regulations set out by the New Zealand government & Ministry of Health.
  • All of our bar partners will have contact tracing measures in place at their venues, and we will be actively providing your contact details to them in a measure to ensure that appropriate contract tracing measures can be taken if needed.
  • We will be reducing the size of our classes down in response to the government's restrictions for groups at bars and restaurants - this varies by venue and is dependent on the venues space and capacity requirements
  • If you are feeling unwell, please stay home & get tested. 


When booking your event:

  • Please book within your bubbles. Book all your tickets with the same booking. This makes it easier for us to seat you together.
  • If you're unable to book together, please email our team at with your order numbers from your booking email confirmation before your session so that we can put your bubble's together.
  • We will endeavour to contact all attendees ahead of events to confirm bubbles and booking groups.



  • We will work closely with our bar and restaurant partners to ensure that our assigned area has been cleaned and prepared correctly in anticipation for our class
  • We will provide the bar with your contact details, to aid in contact tracing measures.
  • You’ll be seated with your bubble, and your bubble only - with this in mind, it is important you let us know who you are attending the event prior to the event starting.
  • We will provide hand sanitiser and disinfectant cleaning products to give you peace of mind.

  • Our artist will abide by social distancing measures and keep the required distance between your bubble and themselves where we can.
  • Our artist will actively monitor the room and all attendees must stay seated during the event.
  • If you are not actively eating or during our artists will encourage you to wear your mask



    • We will be proactively cleaning and disinfecting all of our equipment, including brushes, easels & water cups 
    • We will be unable to provide aprons for events to minimise any surface contact that may occur
    • We’ll also ensure the area where we run our events is appropriately cleaned and disinfected.


    Private & Corporate Events

    • We are still hosting private & corporate events right across New Zealand with our COVID-safe protocols in place.
    • For events outside of Auckland, we can run events for up to 50 people regardless of bubble sizes. We can also hold events at private residences for up to 50 people. 
    • You can read more information on events at Alert Level 2 here
