Champainting® at Madame Tussaud’s and SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

Cork and Canvas

‘Cork and Canvas’ will celebrate its 7th birthday on 14 March – that’s hundreds of thousands of masterpieces created and a whole lot of wine! The experience has evolved over the last 7 years from a cocktail filled art class to a BYO paint and sip studio, and now offering public and corporate private events at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Madame Tussaud’s Sydney, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and Sydney Tower Eye with the new VIP Champainting® experience.

Following the sold out inaugural ‘Champainting®’ experience on Valentine’s Day, Cork and Canvas has teamed up with Merlin Entertainment, to launch this series of Champainting® experiences at Madame Tussaud’s and turtles at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium (available for exclusive private events as well).

The Picasso style art class will enable music fans to get creative with their interpretation of the music icons in Darling Harbour’s Madam Tussaud’s on Saturday the 4 April. Guests can enjoy a 30-minute self-guided tour and get up-close with their favourite stars. Drinks are then served on arrival at the MTV Room. Guests will also be treated to a performance by the one and only Diabolique, a fabulous drag queen from New York City!

To celebrate World Turtle Day on 23 May, guests will have exclusive after-hours access to SEA LIFE Sydney and dive into depths of the ocean followed by creating your own turtley awesome masterpiece under the sea at the Day and Night on the Reef Zone, home to over 500 beautiful sea creatures including reef sharks, tropical fish, jellyfish and of course, turtles.

$10 from each ticket sale will go towards the SEA LIFE Trust to fund conservation initiatives.

These 2-hour paint and sip sessions boast bottomless drinks including sparkling, red and white wine, beer and soft drinks as well as gourmet grazing platters of assorted meats, cheese, antipasti and breads.

To celebrate this milestone, Cork and Canvas has teamed up with Cupitt’s Winery. For everyone who books a paint and sip workshop between now and the 4 April you will go in the draw to win a 2-night stay at Cupitt’s Cottage overlooking the vineyards, a two course lunch overlooking the Burril Lake and Budawang Ranges, a behind the scenes tour and tasting at the winery, brewery and fromagerie at the Cupitt’s Estate!
