Private Event Terms and Conditions

1. What do we paint?

Upon securing your booking, we’ll email you a link to our Gallery of original artwork for you to choose from or we can create a unique painting specifically for you.  The cost for us to create this unique painting varies depending on your needs.  Contact us to discuss.

2. When can we hold our event?

We’re open 7 days a week. We have allocated time-slots throughout each day for all private events.

Your 3-hr paint and sip event can be held between these time slots:

     Morning Events:         between 10am and 1pm
     Afternoon Events:      between 2pm and 5pm
     Evening Events:          between 7pm and 10pm (eg. 7pm till 10.00pm)

With 2-hr off-site paint and sip events, there is additional flexibility with your time slot. However, the events must fall within a morning, afternoon and evening time-slot, subject to availability.

3. Arrival and Departure Time

Your 3-hr event duration is the entire time you have available to you to hold your event. It includes your arrival time, guest mingling time and your painting time. The agreement entered into with US will clearly state your Arrival Time and your Departure Time and the Duration of your event.

4. Maximum People

We can accommodate up to 54 people at our Darlinghurst (NSW) studio, up to 38 people at our Crows Nest (NSW) and South Melbourne (VIC) studios.  We can accommodate 50+ people at our partnering venues throughout Melbourne and Sydney. Our largest event so far has been for 120 people.
