In case you had a few questions about what to expect at a night at Pinot & Picasso, please check out our FAQs below.
As New Zealand’s #1 Paint and Sip Experience, a night at Pinot & Picasso is extremely easy (just how we like it). Just pack your beverage, and we’ll sort the rest.
We provide seating, easel, paint brushes, paint, canvas’ and (probably most importantly) glassware for your favourite drop.
You’ll be guided step by step through your selected artwork by one of our experienced P&P hosts.
With a great soundtrack, expert instruction and a few sips of wine you’ll be moving closer to releasing your inner Picasso!
We encourage a safe approach to drinking alcohol, we love to have a glass of wine whilst we paint, but if you become intoxicated or arrive intoxicated you will be asked to leave the premises. This is to ensure the safety of guests and artists and to keep the focus on the Art not the drinking.
The price per seat includes everything you’ll need to create your masterpiece (except whatever you’ll be drinking).
You’ll have all the necessary equipment provided, including:
- A 16′ x 20′ blank canvas
- Acrylic paints
- Table easel
- Pinot & Picasso apron and
- Glassware for your beverages (most importantly)
All sessions include guidance from one of our artists to assist you in releasing your inner Picasso. The only thing you’ll need to bring is your favourite bottle of vino, some nibbles and your imagination.
Bookings are essential at Pinot & Picasso. We have extremely limited spots available, so booking in advance is more than necessary. We book out sometimes months in advance, so get in quick!
All participants in Pinot & Picasso public events must be 18 and over.
School Holiday events and private functions are a completely different kettle of fish (or bucket of paint). Any all-age events will be advertised accordingly.
We recommend arriving at the studio 10 minutes before the session commences as to give you plenty of time to get comfortable, set-up, and get the wines flowing.
Estimated running time is between 2.5 – 3hrs.
We will always do our best to ensure that groups are placed together.
If you and your friends are booking separately, it’s best to arrive a little earlier to ensure we can seat your group together. We like to operate under the mantra ‘first in best dressed’ when it comes to seating in our studios.
If you have any other special requests please don’t be shy! We want everyone to have the best experience possible at Pinot and Picasso.
Reminder: If you book more than 8 people in a single transaction, we’ll happily throw in a 10% discount for your efforts!
Though we provide aprons to protect your clothes from paint, it’s best to wear something you don’t mind the idea of getting a little bit of paint on. Think comfortable!
Not at all – we are a creative art studio after all!
We’re all about helping you release your inner Picasso. We like to think of our step-by-step instruction to be more of a guide, anyway.
Pinot & Picasso is BYO only! (exception is our Wellington CBD studio which you can purchase alcohol in the studio). We don’t sell any alcoholic drinks in studio, so it’s important to remember to bring your favourite bottle with you!
If you do happen to forget – we’ll be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
We strongly encourage everyone to have a little food to eat while they Paint and Sip! Bring yourself some nibbles, or let us do the hard work for you with one of our hand-crafted, locally sourced grazing boards courtesy of one of our catering partners.
