Who are we?
Let us paint a picture…
We are all looking for a different and unique experience; somewhere fun to go; somewhere to hang out with loved ones and friends; somewhere to enjoy a drink, have a laugh and even bring out our inner child and creative side.
The ‘Sip n Paint’ concept is going crazy around the world… and for good reason.
Our 2.5 hour sessions are led by professionally trained artists. They guide you – step by step – to create your own masterpiece that is yours to keep. You don’t need to be Picasso to enjoy our sessions – this experience is for anyone who is looking to have fun. We promise by the end of the session you will be admiring your painted creation, singing along to your favourite tunes, laughing, meeting new people and creating lasting memories.
We provide your canvas, apron, paints, glassware and awesome music, all you have to do is bring your favourite beverage. We are BYO beverages and nibbles!
To view our session times and book your experience all you have to do is head over to the “Book” tab in this website and you will see our calendar of sessions along with our “Painting of the Day”.

COLOUR & CORK TEAM
Co-Founder & Marketing
Born in Hobart, Rebecca spent all of her childhood and early 20’s in the beautiful state. She ventured off overseas in 2007 and launched a successful wedding & events production company in the Caribbean, which is where her creative side really developed. Rebecca returned to Australia with her husband and eldest son after 7 years abroad to give birth to her second child. The inspiration for Colour & Cork came about when Rebecca was looking for something fun to do with friends while in Brisbane. She stumbled across the Sip n’ Paint concept and after trying it herself, she knew this was an experience Tasmania needed.
Rebecca says “Tasmania has developed immensely over the years and with an ever-growing emphasis on art, tourism and entertainment – Colour & Cork is the perfect fit. This concept is an amazing experience for any age or gender for both Hobart locals and tourists alike”.
