Are there any changes due to COVID-19?
VVG will operate at reduced capacity (15 customers per session) whilst physical distancing restrictions are in place, this applies to public and private events. We’ve implemented stricter cleaning procedures and encourage use of the COVID-safe app. We’re lucky to be in SA with 0 active cases, but it’s important to keep up the good work until a more permanent solution is found!
What is a night out at VVG like?
After you’ve arrived and had your ticket checked you’ll be shown to your seat with your paints, brushes, and canvas all ready to go. You’ll be offered stemware for your drinks and shown the fridge where you can keep them nice and cool. Once everyone is seated our talented host will guide you through a fun 2-3 hour painting session while you sip your favourite refreshment, listen to our hand-crafted playlist, and uncover the Van Gogh you never knew you had in you.
What is included in the cost of the session?
Ticket price includes use of paints, palettes, easels, brushes, smocks, and glassware, instruction from our resident artist and your masterpiece canvas, which is yours to take home after the session.
Do I need to book in advance?
Yes. Unfortunately sessions book out so it is imperative that you book online before arrival to secure your seat.
What time should I arrive and how long are the sessions?
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time to have your ticket checked, be seated, and pour yourself a nice drop before we get started.
If I come with a friend will we be sitting together?
Absolutely. We want you to have the best time possible and will make sure you are seated in the group that you booked with. If you have booked separately and would like to be seated together just let our friendly staff know when you arrive.
What do I wear to a session at VVG?
We do provide (very stylish) smocks/ aprons to protect you from any spills so wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
Do I have to copy the host’s artwork exactly?
Not at all. Our hosts are there to guide you but if your creative juices are telling you to go off-script then you’re more than welcome to.
What if I need to cancel my booking?
All sales are final but if you cannot make it to a session please let us know at least 24 hours prior to your booked session and we will be happy to change your booking to another session. Cancellations within 24 hours of your session may be exchanged at the absolute discretion of management.
