Booze, belly laughs and your best buds – it sounds like the perfect night out to us! If you haven’t yet tried paint and sip, you’re going to want to book in. Even those who aren’t artistically inclined will enjoy sipping on wine while splashing paint on a canvas – you’ll walk out with a beautiful artwork or, at the very least, have a blast creating masterpieces with your friends, siblings or even your own mama. It’s the ultimate Mother’s Day activity!

Montana Art Project, West End
From fun fruits to icons of the silver screen, Montana Art Project’s selection of paintings is what really sets them apart from other paint and sip studios. You’ll not only enjoy a couple of wholesome hours of creative fun, under expert tutelage, but you’ll also score a legitimately beautiful artwork to hang proudly in your home.


Cork & Chroma, South Bank and West End
It might just be the OG paint and sip studio here in Queensland, and Cork and Chroma has truly stood the test of time. Delivered by a team of artists, their sessions make painting so much more accessible. You’ll come to paint a relaxing beach scene, quirky parrot or fruity flatlay, and come back again (and again) for the fun atmosphere.


Brush and Barrel, Fortitude Valley + Surfers Paradise
With studios in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, Brush and Barrel is the ultimate place to brush off the stresses of your day (pun intended) and enjoy a night out with your nearest and dearest. They offer casual paint and sip nights as well as event options, if you wanted to organise something a little fancier!


The Craft Parlour, Palm Beach
If you love paint and sip but are looking to expand your horizons, you’ll love The Craft Parlour – they not only offer banger paint and sip sessions, but also clay and sip and pot painting and sip classes! We suggest checking out their website to see which option will best suit your Mother’s Day plans.


Whatever your reason for staying home this Mother’s Day, you don’t need to miss out on the fun of a paint and sip session – it’s so easy to make your own at home! YouTube is packed full of videos by talented artists walking you through simple artworks, and you can easily top up on materials at your local craft store (and the necessary liquids to satisfy the ‘sip’ part of the equation at your local bottle-o).
