Held in the gorgeous new Wise HeART Studio – either indoor or outdoor depending upon weather –  all materials are supplied and you can nibble on the delicacies of a delicious charcuterie board as you paint and enjoy a relaxing glass of bubbly.

Mobile Paint'n'Sip Events

Are you looking for something different to do for your next Christmas Party, Hen’s Night, Birthday Party, Office Teambuilding Event or just a get together with your friends?

Why not add a bit of fun and laughter with a playful Paint’n’Sip Event?

The great part about this playshop is that I come to you at your own home or at a venue of your choosing. Give me half an hour before your scheduled time to start so I can set everything up and I will also do all the painting clean up afterwards so your friends can just relax and play.

All art materials – canvas, paints, brushes, table easels, templates and even a protective sheet for your table are provided. You provide the nibbles so that you can cater for all dietary requirements and drinks of your choice.

Set aside 3 hours for yourself and your guests to play with paint, laugh and sip the afternoon away.

Themes include landscapes, seascapes, flowers, birds, butterflies and underwater scenes or you can request something different. All themes are designed to set your guests up for success as most will probably have no art experience. (In fact, art experience is not necessary but this could be a turning point for some as they discover a hidden talent!)

All guidance and tuition is provided and attendees can either follow step-by-step instructions or have the freedom to do their own thing.The emphasis is on fun and judgement free.

So, what are you waiting for? Click on the link to request a chat and we can tailor your event to suit your needs.

15 Day Creative Expression Experience

This is a FREE experience for you to learn to express yourself creatively and start challenging yourself to think outside the box. When you start thinking and expressing yourself through the lens of creativity, new doors open and you become aware of possibilities than you never recognised before.

Each day you will have a new activity to pursue. You will need to have a journal of some kind, whether it be a sketch book, a guilt edge writing journal or a repurposed book that you can draw or write in. An email will be sent to you each morning with the day’s challenge, You can choose the time of day you want to do it and then you have the option to upload it into the dedicated Facebook group, Wise HeART Champions. (request to join the group and you will be added just before the challenge starts.

Activities will include collage, drawing (don’t panic if you don’t think you can draw – it’s about the process, not the outcome, so no experience is necessary), mandalas, journal writing, scribbling and doodling, guided writing topics and much more.

All you need is a journal or book to create in, a pen and some colouring pencils or felt tips pens, paints if you have them, a glue stick, and an open mind. This is where you get to stretch yourself, step out of your comfort zone and have some play time for YOU.

I’ll be in the Facebook group each day with your daily task and, if you miss one day, or want to revisit a previous day, they will all be here in the group with a # so you can find them.

This is a FREE experience so please invite your friends or relatives to join us. The more the merrier.

Why am I doing this? I believe that being creative is ESSENTIAL to your mental health and personal expression and, right now, we need all the help we can get in keeping ourselves emotionally fit, right?

So, no excuses, don’t let Resistance hold you back. There are no prizes for letting fear or negative self-talk run your life yet the wins for embracing something new are astronomical!
