prerequisite: There are no prerequisites

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: the studio is up a set of old-fashioned staircase so this isn’t suitable for you if you can’t make it up the stairs.  Also, there’s some fumes from Alcohol Inks so please note that this is NOT suitable for anyone who is pregnant.

Everyone must be18 years of age – did we say and not pregnant? – to attend.

  • All materials are provided.
  • Please wear closed-in shoes.

  • 90 minutes

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

You’ll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful!   During the workshop I’ll take photographs of you for my website and for my social media. (If you don’t want this to happen just let me know.)


Please wear closed toe shoes. (No thongs, no sandals that expose your toes.)   You need to be able to stand securely on both feet and climb one steep flight of stairs to the workshop. No alcohol is sold, bring your own. YOU are responsible for how much you and your friends drink and any consequences. No pregnant attendees.


All you need to do is wait for an email from me letting you know that your masterpiece has been sealed and framed and is ready to be picked up. This usually happens within 3 days of the workshop.  By the way, because we have a small space, your creations will be kept at the studio for 21 days after the workshop. After then, it will be donated to charity.

What do I bring?

You! Please bring your favourite alcoholic refreshments and your nibbles you want to enjoy during this event.  You guarantee that you and any other attendees are over 18 years of age.

Covid and Influenza Notice.

If you are or have recently been unwell, let me know and we’ll reschedule your class at zero cost until you are well enough to come and have some fun!


My studio is a part of the Swan Street Artist Studio complex. We are on Level 1 of 550 Swan Street Richmond. You’ll love having your workshop in this unique first floor warehouse.

Parking is surprisingly easy to find around our studios 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.  Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond and the parking here is 2 hours so we’ll set our alarms and make sure we all move our cars at the two hour point. 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
