It’s nearly that time of year again. Something’s in the air, and it’s not just ‘Jingle Bells’… the silly season is upon us! ‘Tis the season for festivity, and getting together with loved ones to celebrate the year that was. Whether you’re hosting a work Christmas party, getting the family or a group of friends together, or gifting a loved one, you’ve come to the right place. At Cork & Chroma we love celebrating big and small, but mostly we just love celebrating with you and the special people in your life.
Our paint and sip sessions cater to all kinds of gatherings and celebrations. We offer public sessions, private sessions and online sessions, so no one has to miss out! No matter the occasion, you can be sure that you’re going to have a great time. You will learn the basics of painting with acrylics, taking home your finished piece at the end, and along the way you can sip, dance, sing along to our famous Cork & Chroma playlist and catch up with your fellow artists. It’s basically a paint party, and everyone’s invited.
We run public sessions in our Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne studios throughout silly season, where you can paint all of our Cork & Chroma classics as well as a sprinkling of Christmas-inspired specials (look out for ‘Fir Tree’ and ‘Tis the Sea-Sun!’). In these sessions you share the studio with other painters. The vibes are high, and our guests often leave the session having made a new friend or two. Come on your own or bring your pals, and let us know in the booking notes who you’re meeting and we’ll make sure you’re seated together!
If you’re looking to host a larger scale event such as a work Christmas party, we recommend booking a private event where you will have the whole studio space to yourself. One of our experienced Cork & Chroma artists will guide your group through your chosen painting step by step, and you’ll have plenty of time to catch up on life in between! Our sessions are curated so you can enjoy a balance of all the things that make for a great group celebration: a shared creative activity to bring everyone together, time to socialise and catch up, and a killer playlist to keep the vibes high! Just like our public painting sessions, our private events are BYO. Hosting a private event has plenty of perks: you can decorate the space, cater however you please, and choose your favourite painting from our painting options list. Our dream team will work with you to ensure your special event goes off without a hitch.
If you can’t make it to our studios in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, want to run an event for a group across different locations, or just really love being at home, then our online sessions are for you. These run in the same way as our studio sessions, except that you do the painting part from home. This option means there are no limits when it comes to capacity, so you can throw a party over several states, or even countries. We offer public and private online sessions, and you have the option of pre-purchasing your arty equipment for the session, or paying a little extra for us to pack and post everything you need straight to your doorstep.
It’s always a good idea to celebrate, and silly season’s as good a time as any. At the start of our painting sessions we like to ask our guests if they’re celebrating anything in particular, and get all kinds of answers: sometimes it’s a work Christmas party, sometimes it’s a birthday or anniversary, and sometimes it’s just celebrating ‘life’ in general. No matter the occasion, we’d love to raise our glass—and paintbrush—with you.
