Q: What’s it like at Cork and Canvas?
A: It’s a fun, creative and unique night out! Simply bring your favourite bottle of wine or other beverage (excludes Pub Paint Sessions) and enjoy our relaxed and fun environment where our talented artists guide you step-by-step how to paint the session’s featured artwork. Come alone, come with a date, come with friends! Using acrylic paint on a canvas, you’ll be surprised at the masterpiece you create! As we say, Walk in a Skeptic, Leave with a Masterpiece!
Q: How much does a public paint session cost?
A: Sessions held at our South Melbourne location cost $45pp on Tuesday nights, $50pp on Wednesday and Thursday nights and $60pp on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. Automated reduced pricing applies when 4 or more people book together. Prices differ for specialty events, such as Paint Your Pet and Paint Your Mate.
Q: How long are the sessions?
A: Friday and Saturday night sessions and Sunday afternoon sessions run for about 3 hours while our Sunday evening to Thursday evening sessions run for about 2 hours.
Q: What time should I arrive?
A: Our evening sessions start at 7pm and our Sunday afternoon sessions start at 2pm. We recommend arriving 5-10 minutes prior to session start times so you can checkin with our artists, grab your apron and paints, pour your glass of liquid creativity and settle into your paint station.
Q: What should I wear to a session?
A: Wear whatever is comfortable for you. We provide aprons to protect your clothes although we recommend that you wear something that you won’t mind if a little paint splashes on – accidents do happen.
Q: How old do I need to be to attend a session?
A: You must be 18+ to attend a night session. Children aged 8+ are welcome to Sunday day sessions with an accompanying painting adult, no exception. As our sessions are intended to be relaxing for all our patrons, due to the duration of our sessions, children under the age of 8 are not permitted to attend.
Q: Am I allowed to eat while I paint?
A: Yes! Bring along your snacks and nibbles to enjoy while you paint.
Q: Do I have to paint exactly the same thing as the art instructor?
A: No way! We encourage you to unleash your inner artist and put your own creativity into your artwork.
Q: Can I take my painting home with me?
A: Yes! By then end of the session, your masterpiece will be dry for you to take home.
Q: Can I bring along someone who won’t be painting?
A: Unfortunately no. Seats are reserved for painting customers only.
Q: What if I need to cancel my booking?
A: Excluding bookings of 8+ people, if you cancel at any time up to 72 hours prior to your session, we will reschedule your seat to a more convenient date or provide you with a refund in the same manner as you made your booking. For bookings of 8+ people, we require no less than 7 days notice prior to your session. Should you need to cancel your booking within 72 hours of the session (or within 7 days for group bookings of 8+ people), a $25 rebooking fee per seat applies for 3-hr sessions and $20 rebooking fee per seat for 2-hr sessions. “No shows” will be charged the full amount without refund.

A: Yes! Check out our Book a Private Party page for more information.
