Fun loving event for friends to share.

cost: $99
prerequisite: There are no prerequisites
you get: to learn and make alcohol ink art
duration: 1.5 hours (90 minutes)

Please remember you can party here again and again.

Think outside the box for your next girls’ night out or your next special celebration!

We love the idea of bringing people together and encouraging them to be creative, and our exciting new “Sip and Ink” events are not about being ‘creative’, but more about ‘having a go’ and trying something new, abstract and random. And you get real art at the end of it!

Each one of you will enjoy the joy of creating your own alcohol ink masterpiece – we can pretty much guarantee you’ll love what you make!  Absolutely no experience necessary – just ink, a drink or two with your best mates, enjoy some great music and have fun!

During our 90 minutes, you’ll learn how to use alcohol ink and you’ll create a gorgeous piece of alcohol ink art for your home, or as a gift for a loved on.

Your favourite alcohol ink artwork will be professionally sealed and framed and ready for you to collect a week after your event.

Your framed art piece is something to show off at your next party or to visitors!

First up, I’ll take you through the basics of using alcohol inks.  You get step-by-step guidance in my small creative and safe studio in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, in my space within a studio filled with fascinating working artists.  You’ll just love being here.

All you need to do is rock up – you’ll get all the art materials you’ll need.  Everything will be ready for you to use: tools, inks and everything you need including the special “yupo” paper.

Bring your own favourite alcoholic or soft drinks and nibbles. We’ll have all the glasses you need and lashings of lime and soda too.  Then just kick back and enjoy the fun and excitement with your friends! Attending our “Sip and Ink” evening, is a sure-fire way to make your next girl’s night an unforgettable experience.

Celebrate …. Anything! Bachelorette parties, birthday parties, a unique date night, divorce parties, corporate gatherings, or other type of get together and catch up.

When your event has finished, just decide which of your favourite paintings I’ll frame and then you’ll go off to one of the many Richmond restaurants or pubs nearby to complete your evening.

Please note: Also, there’s some fumes from Alcohol Inks so please note that this is NOT suitable for anyone who is pregnant.

Simply book the date that works for you and your friends. Minimum of three persons, maximum of eight. What fun!

DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE UNLESS YOU ARE THE ‘DESIGNATED DRIVER’ AND REMAIN UNDER THE LEGAL BLOOD ALCOHOL LEVEL.

Better still, let the train or tram take the strain. According to Google, there’s a 6-minute walk from Burnley Railway Station to 550 Swan Street (its 450 metres away).  Tram 70 stops a few metres from our front door.

If you don’t see a time and date that suits you here, please email me at [email protected] and we will add a new date just for you and your friends!

You’re going to love this workshop!   jenie

Please wear a warm-ish top, as Alcohol Inks are a little smelly, so we’ll be keeping the space well ventilated during this workshop.  And please don’t wear your best clothes, this is a messy (but delightful!) art form.  As you are coming to my glass studio, please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a singlet top) and closed toe shoes.  (No thongs, no sandals that expose your toes).

If you’d like to bring refreshments, alcohol or nibbles to this workshop – that’ll be fine, assuming you are over 18 years of age.

Bring your friends and create memories together.

If you’re feeling under the weather from flu or covid, no worries, call me and we’ll reschedule your class.  Of course, there’s zero cost for rescheduling.

This is one of my workshops that aren’t offered to under 18’s.  Sorry please bring them to a different class and not this one.

This workshop is NOT SUITABLE to anyone who is pregnant, even a little pregnant.  Please wait until you have your precious baby and we’ll play with inks then.

Also, I’ll take your picture during this workshop, always let me know if you don’t want this to happen.  (Its just for my website and socials.)

  • My studio is a part of the Swan Street Artist Studio complex. We are on Level 1 of 550 Swan Street Richmond. It’s a contemporary art space run by Professional Artists, you’ll love having your workshop in this unique first floor warehouse. It’s a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment. You’ll love being here!
  • Car parks are surprisingly easy to find around our studios. We are on the intersection of Swan Street, and Bendigo Street, Richmond.
  • You can often park right outside – fortunately we are at the quiet end of Swan Street. But remember the parking here is 2 hours so we’ll get you to set your alarm and make sure we all move our cars at the 2 hour point. Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond.
