Get Creative in Christchurch

When was the last time you took moment out of your day to get creative? It could be time to try something new and express your creative side! 

Ceramic Class

Head along to Go Potty Ceramic Studio to try something a little different. Choose your pottery, paint it and they take care of the rest.  You can then claim the glory of your fabulous hand painted masterpiece.  There are drop in sessions every Tuesday between 10am and 2pm or sign up for an evening class. This is the perfect opportunity to just take some time out, treat yourself and get creative.

Jewellery Making 

There is nothing quite like the colour overload of walking into Beadz Unlimited and seeing the walls lined with jars of thousands of shiny pieces of joy! It is a fashionista's haven - you can spend hours creating a masterpiece at one of the tables- or if you are keen to learn more then head to one of their workshops to help get the creative juices flowing. 

Paint n' Sip

Fancy an evening of painting whilst sipping on a glass of wine? If that sounds like a bit of you then check out Paint n' Sip.  They offer a variety of inspired workshops for you to paint till your heart’s content. With a qualified artist as your host to help hone your painting talents you will walk away with your own creative canvas to proudly hang at home.

Located at a relaxed bar in Christchurch, this is the perfect class to head to for a date, catching up with mates or for meeting new friends. All materials (high-quality canvas, acrylic paint, brushes) are provided. So bring along your creative spirit (or find some at the bottom of a glass) and at the end of the night leave with your own painting ready to hang up on your wall! Classes are every Wednesday, 7pm to 8:30/9pm (Arrive for 6:45pm, painting starts at 7pm), Dux Central.
