R!OT WINE CO. WORKSHOPS
We are very excited to be partnering with Riot Wine Co. as one of our sponsors for our upcoming Fair.

Riot want you to get to know what it means to enjoy life #TheRiotWay at the Fair, and will be hosting a series of wine tasting creative art workshops, with a sustainable twist.
Choose from the following:
Wine Tasting + Decanted, De-Stilled Life Drawing with Nauti Studios
Sit down, relax and let your creativity flow. People of all drawing experience levels welcome. After a delectable wine tasting, and drawing technique coaching from professional illustrators, you’ll spend a relaxing hour doing still life drawing. An illustration practice with origins as old as the Middle ages, and Ancient Greco-Roman times, and a significant practise since the 16th century. Your drawing subject matter, a delicious visual platter, will be an arrangement of beautiful flowers for the hour, a gorgeous optical glassware affair, and cutting edge blades of all shades.
Sunday 11am / 3pm
$20 per session. Book here.
Wine Tasting + Collage with Lyndon Pike
In this class, you will be shown examples of collage forms and styles, as well as touching upon the exploration of composition basics. You’ll be supplied with a variety of source materials and will leave with a complete work of art, ready for you to hang up at home. This class is designed to spark your creative mind and show you that no matter how inexperienced you are, collage is absolutely for everyone!|
