Workshop Series designed by Outside the Shape and Heart & Swirl
Heart & Swirl
Our Heart & Swirl Art and Wine Workshops have a touch more elegance then most Paint Nights. Our artists use only top quality paint and canvases and we offer thorough interactive instruction. We will teach you the skills to create your own piece of abstract art and every guests painting is unique and original.
Between layers of paint drying you will taste three glasses of wine each paired with the perfect bite of food. We hope to introduce you to new varietals, different wine regions, and help you discover your new favourite wine and what to enjoy it with.
Outside The Shape
Tucked away in a 120 year old historical home in the heart of Inglewood is Outside The Shape, a charming retail, gallery and workshop space. Devoted to showcasing the local makers of our community, we have created an extraordinary space for shopping for the perfect gift, to wandering through our gallery space, or taking part in one of our Makers Workshops.
Our Makers Workshops are designed for you to be a part of the creative process and to get in touch with your inner artist with all kinds of different mediums. From customizing your own essential oil blends for your home to designing and painting a contemporary clock for your wall, our workshops are imaginative and engaging.
