 What is Cork and Canvas? 

Cork and Canvas is a 'paint and sip' class, founded in Manchester. Whilst the drinks are flowing, one of our talented artists will guide you step-by-step to complete your very own unique canvas painting to take home with you and hang with pride!

 Do I have to be a good painter? 

Not at all. In fact, most people who paint with us haven't picked up a brush since school! We have created an innovative teaching method that breaks down each step of the painting process, making it super simple to follow. We pride ourselves on the fact that people of all abilities leave our classes with something that they are proud of and memories to last a lifetime. 

 Where are you based? 

We pop-up at lots of amazing venues across the North West of England including 'Freight Island' and 'New Century House' in Manchester. Recently, we have launched our 'Paint & Sip' events in Macclesfield and Ramsbottom. If you'd love us to host an event more local to you, don't hesistate to get in touch and we'll see what we can do. 

 What time should I arrive to Cork and Canvas? 

We recommend arriving a good ten minutes before the event begins so that you have time to grab a drink, settle in and prepare yourself to paint (and sip!). 


 Does Cork and Canvas provide everything I need? 

Yes, we provide everything that you'll need to complete your masterpiece including a blank canvas, easels, paints, palettes, brushes, aprons and of course - a fantastic teacher and some mint tunes!

 Is there an age requirement for your class? 

No, there is no age requirement and we even offer half-price tickets for 'under 18's' for most of our events. However, all under 18's must be accompanied by an adult and we may ask to see photographic proof of age so bring that with you - just in case!

 Can I bring my own alcohol

If the event description says 'BYOB' then yes, you are permitted to bring your own alcohol with you. However, our events held at licensed venues will require you to buy your drinks from their bar. Always check the event description before booking your ticket to check what applies at your chosen event.

 Do you have gift vouchers I can purchase

Yes! Our vouchers are a wonderful gift idea for your friends, colleagues and family members and gifting an 'experience', as opposed to something they'll probably never use, is becoming an increasingly popular option.

You can purchase gift vouchers here.

 I can't make the event, can I have a refund? 

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds. We do apologise! However, you are welcome to gift your event ticket to someone else if you're unable to make it on the day. Furthermore, you can visit our 'Terms and Conditions' for more details regarding 'ticket transfer'. 

 I have a different question, how can I ask it? 

We're always available to answer your questions. If there is anything else you would like to ask, simply drop us an email to
