Artable is bringing you a relaxing way to wind down at the end of your day and let the creativity flow. It's time to connect with like-minded people and discover the artist within. We are bringing coastal themed templates to paint with....go bright, broad and bold or small, detailed and petite!
You need no drawing or artistic talent whatsoever for tonight - you can trace your designs and then apply our simple watercolour processes to your image to create stunning Potted Plant inspired designs using bright and bold colours. Of course if you have an artistic bent, knock yourself out and create your own designs.
This is the perfect event to gather your friends and unwind from life in our little creative sanctuary. You can BYO drinks & your own snacks, platters etc to make a night of it - Artable supplies you with all art materials.
The Borrowed Nursery is even offering all customers 10% on the night, so feel free to stock up on your planty goodness & gifts!
