The host is Wayside employee and former rough sleeper, Andrew Windsor, who draws on his own experiences of homelessness and addiction to provide people with a rare insight into street life.

Join us for a finger-painting workshop under the expert guidance of local artist and all-round legend Stephen Evans. We will lead you on a raucous, colourful and hilarious journey in which you’ll create not one, but two masterpieces painted with just your hands – not a brush to be seen.

In this awesome class, you’ll learn some basic colour theory, painting composition and unique techniques on how to paint using just what you were born with- your hands and your Heart.

Enjoy 2 glasses of wine, some canapes and prepare to rediscover that childhood passion for getting messy while learning a rad new skill to create art at home! You’ll be amazed at what you will create.

What you’ll get:

  • Acrylic pant and canvas
  • Red wine to get the creative juices flowing – but feel free to BYO of course!
  • Latex gloves if you don’t want to get too messy (but it is more fun that way
