Ruth Reah Feb 2024


It was a great class at Telfords. New artist ‍ who was really lovely. Loved this painting because it just all came together in the end

Sharon Galvin Feb 2024


Must admit I was a bit apprehensive about this event. My sister wanted to try it so me and another friend went too. Upon our arrival and throughout the atmosphere was calm and inviting, no akwardness or feeling out of place. The class was led with clear instruction with all materials provided and topped up when needed. I've not painted for quite a long time but found the step by step instructions easy to follow (not that I was perfect) and help was give when requested. During the break the food that was provided was impressive, plentiful and delicious. Have to say once the event finished all 3 of us were very pleased with our paintings. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend anyone to join one these classes. It was an absolute joy.

Matthew Jones Feb 2024


The venue was lovely to paint, I thought it was quite cramped at first when I sat down but I got used to it once I started to paint.
The teachers were resourceful with the materials they provided and polite to ask if we wanted our pictures taken. The people I met were very friendly to talk with too.

For £35 I'd say it was good value to paint for 2 hours, by the end I felt really relaxed and happy with the results of my painting.

Lewis Feb 2024


First time going, it was a great time. Great atmosphere and the teacher was great with clear instructions and was very helpful and supportive. We'll definitely be going again!

Thoroughly enjoyed this class. I had bought the class as a birthday present for a friend and we both found everything about the class excellent. The teacher explained everything clearly and the paints and canvases were good quality. The food and wine were good too.

Ffion Hughes Jan 2024


Really fun evening out being creative. Teachers were really friendly and fun, encouraging and patient.
The venue is lovely but the lighting wasn’t great in my opinion. I had to use the torch on my phone a bit to see properly.

Kiki Dee Grant Jan 2024


Throughly enjoyed my painting experience with my sister
Fabulous venue
Drinks/nibbles were lovely
& the girls running the Art class very attentive & informative…
We’ll be back with friends & family soon xx

A fun evening with a wide variety of excellent paintings at the end of it. Usual fast pace as comes with a two hour painting but didn't feel too rushed. Parking is difficult at Telford when the car park is full, ended up ten minutes walk away.

Lynsey Shi Jan 2024


Had such a fun night. Ashley was a great teacher. Drinks and food was super even had a little sing a long to the music. So proud of my painting. Definitely will be back x

Rossella Jones Jan 2024


The teacher was fantastic and her assistant very helpful. We had a lovely evening at the Telford Warehouse in Chester last night. 3rd time now and still very enjoyable. Will be back.

The whole experience was such a laugh, with a kind and patient teacher! The venue was wonderful and cozy.

Me and my Mum had a fabulous evening at Duke Street Food and Drink Market. Chelsea’s guidance throughout was so useful and encouraging, and Dani was fantastic in supporting us and helping out! We are already looking into our next event. Thank you

Sarah Lawrence Jan 2024


Teacher was great, explained things well and was easy to follow along. All materials were provided. Venue was a bit cold though but good atmosphere. Would have been good if a glass of wine or a beer was included in the price.

Jessica Quintana Jan 2024


Absolutely brilliant! The teacher was great, the class was fun and it is 100% worth the money!

Margaret Rathbone Jan 2024


Bought the paint and sip class as a Christmas present for myself and my 2 daughters. It was our first time at duke street market and won’t be our last! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, it was a fun and relaxed evening, the girls who led the class were instructive but let people express their own style. Every one was helpful and there was a break for a very tasty buffet. A beer or wine was included as well. I would definitely recommend

James Glover Jan 2024


Excellent value for money! Would definitely recommend and do again! Bought as a gift for family

Sue Mitchell Jan 2024

Lauren Baines Dec 2023


I really didn’t know what to expect when I turned up to the session as I am not really artistic and wow loved it so much! Will 100% be returning, it was so easy to follow and also so lovely being a room full of strangers all aiming for the same outcome.

We had a brilliant night at sip & paint, it was so much fun, I would highly recommend it , the teacher was great at explaining the techniques talked us through but letting you use you own creativity if we wanted

Lynne Tobias Dec 2023


Great class
Fun
Helpful teacher
All good except my coat is ruined where the paint must have rubbed against it as I carried it out

Alison Dec 2023


Really enjoyed the class. Instructor was very helpful and friendly. We also got a good amount of food so very good value for money

Painting class review by Alison - Liverpool

Sue Nov 2023


Had a great time again. The teacher was great, taking us through the steps one by one and keeping an eye out if anyone needed help. She was ably supported by her helper who kept us all supplied with kitchen roll.
It's a great to spend an evening and although I'm no Picasso, I was quite proud of my effort. Will definitely be going again.

Catherine Maddaford Nov 2023

Bought for my mums and my birthdays , got food and cocktails before we started, sat along the canal with some drinks, get there early if you want to sit together but had an amazing time! Fun and laid back, good vibes. Thanks so much we had a fantastic time

Paint and Sip Party review by Charlotte - Chester

Agnes Dawson Nov 2023


Amazing evening really fun and can’t believe I created such a lovely piece of art work.
I always thought people at these classes just painted pre-drawn background but I was very wrong. The artist we had leading us was so friendly and explained things so well. The food was amazing very worth the price. We are definitely coming back for more sessions

Paint and Sip Party review by Agnes Dawson - Liverpool

Keelyn Gandhi Nov 2023


Everything was perfect. I just wouldn’t advertise “sip” as no sip was provided. Ones I’ve been to before at least have a drink or two included.

Alice Pincock Nov 2023


Really good :)
Our teacher was really lovely and made it super fun. We had a great time

Steph Ellis Nov 2023


Fab night, made fun by the company and ‘artist’. Very relaxed and casual but time was spent laughing and learning. Would definitely book again with friends.

Nila Mistry Nov 2023


Katie was excellent, showed us step by step how to create the painting. She made it fun and we all had such a fabulous night . Highly recommend it and will definitely going again. Great atmosphere and great venue as well, great idea for an alternative girls night out. Thanks Katie xx

Emily Nov 2023


Our teacher was lovely and an amazing artist, she really helped us with our paintings and made us feel confident and happy

Payal Suchdev Oct 2023


Teacher was fab; attentive and encouraging to all levels of class. Must be difficult to do her job (coming from a teacher of 20 years!). Venue was great, too. Staff and food was good. Could have done with a bit more light and a bit longer to complete the art (though venue and teacher did not kick us out even though we went over time a bit).
Enjoyable experience and would recommend!

Tammy Carter Oct 2023


Really fun night. Host was brilliant - engaging and costly taking us through all the steps. So pleased with the end result. Will definitely be booking on another event

Anonymised ClassBento student Oct 2023


Host was fantastic and super encouraging! Everything needed was readily available and felt like great quality. Silk rd was a fab venue, the tapas dish for dinner was gorgeous and the staff where super friendly when getting drinks! Will 100% come to a paint and sip party again ☺️

Kelly Vaughan Oct 2023


Great value for money brilliant night out would highly recommend and will be booking again

Justine Watkinson Oct 2023

Molly Ward (Hm3 Legal) Oct 2023


We booked onto the Starry Night class as a work event for our team to enjoy together and we had a really good evening, we learned a lot about layers and mixing different colours. The teacher was great and really got everyone involved and having a laugh, would 100% return to this!

Maureen White Oct 2023

Painting class review by Claire Needham - Liverpool

Carrie Oct 2023


Really enjoyed the class, the teacher was great and made creating the painting easy and fun. The food was also delicious! Fab night all round, would definitely do it again.

Jonathan Oates Oct 2023


Really good fun! Taught at a great pace - happy with pictures. Great food and drink.

Katie O’Neill Oct 2023


Great session, some parts felt a bit rushed so then had time to catch-up during the break. Would have been nice for the teacher to circulate more and give more personal direction to improve technique etc.
For more developed painters it would have been nice to have even more details to further enhance their painting.

Annmaria Miller Oct 2023


Great class, so pleased with my finished product. Teachers were excellent with all materials provided. Good value for money with quality food and drink.
Only let down is Liverpool venue isn't wheelchair accessible.

Kimberley Caza Oct 2023


The venue was great, it was a busy class but it didn’t feel cramped. The quality of the food was very good, we really enjoyed it.

The teacher was fabulous, she worked at an easy pace and everyone managed to create something wonderful! I would definitely go back again

Paint and Sip Party review by Kimberley Caza - Liverpool

Michelle Davies Oct 2023


I’ve never painted at all before and booked this for a friends birthday. Great evening, food and drinks were fab and came away with some new skills and a canvas I am pretty proud of!
Thanks :)

Faye Hall Oct 2023


Amazing evening. Really nice vibe and atmosphere. Not too fast and each step thoroughly explained. Great for beginners or experienced artists. Gorgeous food and free drink was a nice touch too. Will be booking again.

Sue Jopson Sep 2023


Just had my first 'sip and paint' session and it won't be my last.
Everything was set up ready for the class - canvas, paints, brushes, palette, aprons. The teacher was brilliant. She showed us what to do, taking us step by step, explaining everything really well. She waited between each step so no one was left behind, answered anyone's questions and went round the room encouraging people and giving helpful suggestions.
Added bonus is I got to take my painting home.
My only bad point is that the lighting in the room was too dark for me in certain areas which isn't your fault but might be something that needs addressing with the venue.

Paint and Sip Party review by Anonymised ClassBento student - Chester

Elizabeth Boyden Sep 2023


It was excellent. We took two colleagues who were convinced they couldn't paint and they were delighted with the results. Venue and food were excellent. Can't wait for next one.

Jennifer Morris Sep 2023


Great event, lots of fun. Could have done with 30mins more maybe to finish the painting.

Susan Canning Sep 2023


A great experience for a solo person or a bigger group to experience painting your own masterpiece! Everything we needed was provided to paint our picture. We even had a drink and the most amazing food!
I’m really happy with my painting. I enjoyed it so much, I have already rebooked for another session

Painting class review by Susan Canning - Liverpool

Cara Royal Sep 2023


Great facilities and colour session! Love that we also get to take something home to keep too!

Beth Kilheeney Sep 2023


Danielle and Chelsea were amazing hosts and dealt with a very loud group of us in a great way. They kept everything great timings-wise and we’re good fun for our hen. Everyone loved the activity!

Absolutely brilliant night. Venue, food and set up fantastic. Staff were warm and welcoming, patient and made their jobs look effortless. As a birthday gift for someone who has everything this was perfect and was recommended by a friend who had already been. Just loved it. The young girls were the perfect hosts.

Lisa Reece Aug 2023


Had a great night with 2 of my friends, the instructions were easy to understand and the teacher was complimentary and supportive.
The only downside was there wasn't much room between people so when working on the edges of the canvas it was a bit different.

Otherwise was a really good night and will be booking another

Jennifer Aug 2023


The venue was great, lovely atmosphere and plenty of spaces available. The teacher gave plenty of instructions. We were provided plenty of materials and I really enjoyed it!

Painting class review by Jennifer - Liverpool

Jayne Ashton Aug 2023


Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Teachers were lovely. So good we’ve booked again before Christmas. Instructions clear and all materials provided

Jo Hiles Aug 2023


We were a group of 4 and had a fabulous time painting the highland cow.
A well organised, steady paced class with a comfort break in the middle.
For a non-artist I came away with a fabulous and fun piece of art!
Instructions from the ‘teacher’ were clear and the atmosphere was light hearted - everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
The venue was good, but a little dark in places - it didn’t spoil the experience though.

Zoe Broster Aug 2023


We had the best time and can’t wait to rebook! Great atmosphere and amazing company thank you

Paint and Sip Party review by Zoe Broster - Chester

Rachel Green Aug 2023


Great evening, couldn't have been more fun! Definitely booking again. Team were really helpful amd enthusiastic and great pictures created all round

Anonymised ClassBento student Aug 2023


Great fun to do with friends and learn some new skills at the same time. Teacher was good and supportive throughout. Well organised but a lot of people which felt quite squashed into a small space. I have previously done one of these elsewhere and it was a lot better having more space to work with better lighting. Assistant could have been a bit more proactive making sure everyone had extra materials needed as we went along. Overall a fun social activity to do!

Anonymised ClassBento student Aug 2023


Was overall good.
Instructions a bit fast in places and felt a bit squashed in.

Niamh Stanley Aug 2023


Really good fun! Surprised myself with how good the painting ended up! Definitely attending again

Kevin Callacher Aug 2023


A fantastic evening of entertainment. Great fun really nice venue good food and drink. And we managed to paint a picture too.

Emma Hawker Aug 2023


Such a fun evening, the teacher Katie was brilliant at guiding us but letting us make it our own at the same time, we will definitely be signing up for another!

Charlotte Venables Aug 2023


Our teacher Katie was brilliant! She was a joy, made everyone feel welcome and checked on everyone throughout, and the lesson was well paced. A really fun night :D

Naomi Trevett Jul 2023


The venue was great. The teacher was good but it was a bit too fast paced. Fresh water half way through the class would have been helpful. Other than that there were plenty of supplies. Some more guidance would have been helpful!

Wendy Vasey Jul 2023


Lovely night just put on facebook, Teacher was great, chatty, helpful, patient and friendly! Really enjoyed it we will definitely attend more x

Alison Lunt Jul 2023


The evening was a relaxed environment, for non experienced to experienced participants. All materials are provided the teacher was supportive from beginning to end. Arrive early if you are a bigger party to guarantee sitting together.
I will definitely be looking to do another night.
Great value for money for a great night out.

Suzane Singer Jun 2023


We attended last nights class as a group of 14. We were all pleased to come home with a finished painting and had had a really good time in the process. Our teacher was lovely and she was so patient and gave clear instructions all the way through whilst keeping us all focused so we finished our paintings. It’s great value for money and just a really nice activity to do even if you’ve never painted anything before.
We will be back again im sure of it

Paint and Sip Party review by Suzane Singer - Chester

Painting class review by Sharon Duncan - Liverpool

Jo McKnight May 2023


We had such a fun evening and despite not thinking too much of the paintings we’d done, now we have them at home we’re pretty impressed with our efforts! I’ve been to a class before, but it was a few years ago, so really liked the Liverpool venue you use now and the addition of drinks and snacks!
Teachers were lovely and happy to help and give tips! Would definitely come again - thank you.

I haven't painted since school and I'm not artistic, but my painting came out really well and much better than expected!

The teacher was really good and went at the right speed. The event was good value for money, I would definitely recommend you go!

Really enjoyed the experience, teaching great. Good value for £ would go again, and nice food

Lucy South Feb 2023


Absolutely loved this night - so good! Was brilliant to paint again - since I haven’t since school and it’s so therapeutic. The girls are lovely. The only thing I would say, it would be nice to just see the original painting in the class even though you couldn’t possibly complete it in the time it would be nice just for extra inspiration.

Elizabeth Boyden Feb 2023


It was wonderful. The venue was great, the food fantastic and the teachers made the whole experience amazing. It was my retirement present from my school and it has totally inspired me to take up painting. We are definately coming again. What a fab night out!

Fiona Chaff Feb 2023


It was a good party, interesting to see how others interpreted the picture. It was the first time I had used acrylic paint on canvas, and gave me confidence to try more. It was good to attempt a painting with baby steps.

Teacher was excellent. It was my first time and I was a bit nervous she made me feel confident that I could do it myself. Picture came out very good.

Paint and Sip Party review by Alexandra Gillard - Chester

Philippa Kilgallon Dec 2022


Enjoyable but felt very rushed, maybe the painting was too complex for the time. The lighting was really poor at the venue too so difficult to see the demonstration and colours look very different on our finished pieces in daylight

Teacher's response

Hi Philippa,
Many thanks for your feedback.
We are always grateful that our customers give feedback like this as we want to improve our sessions for next time!
Previously, we have resolved lighting issues in the venue by hanging up more lights. Sometimes lighting is dimmed on the night by other members of staff to create an atmosphere in the main restaurant and this can be checked going forward. We are sorry to hear you experienced low lighting at this event.
We are also sorry to hear that you felt the session was rushed and painting colours are different to expected. The Christmas painting is our signature painting which has been used for many years and is typically achievable in 2 hours by mixed abilities. We can confirm that the paint we use are the same and consistent with the original, however acrylic paints are versatile and depending on how much is used, and how they are applied with water, then end result can look a bit different. We also encourage customers who are struggling to see the demonstration to let us know asap, as we are are able to move people closer to the front, no problem.
Ultimately, these events focus on having fun, and are a great first event to try painting again. We do try to steer away from the more serious, formal-style painting classes and instead remain light-hearted in instruction. We hope you will come back and try us again as we use an array of paintings which may be more enjoyable to you.
Many thanks
The Paint Republic Team

Kerry Holt Nov 2022


thoroughly enjoyed my evening with paint republic. the teacher was a different one to my previous experience and I would say she wasnt quite as skilled as the teacher I have had experience of before but, she was still lovely and encouraging. the equipment i was provided were fine other than: my white paint which was very weak and watery - I did however get access to an alternative which was much better; there wasnt enough kitchen roll to wipe brushes between colours; and I do think the water should be changed in the break. the session did feel a little rushed at the end and it was difficult to paint over some areas as the first layer hadnt yet dried. I had a wonderful time with loads of fun and laughter. it was a great atmosphere in a fantastic venue. I would definitely try another session and would definitely recommend the experience to others.

I felt welcomed into the workshop by the two ladies the host and the assistance. It was nice to get a drinks token and a buffet which I didn’t expect to be honest I didn’t read what paint and sip including so it was a nice surprise but yeah all together it was a great lesson. This is something I would love to do again with the presence of my friends or family getting involved.

The teacher was fabulous. Really helpful and interactive. We went as a group of four and we made it into a little competition between us for some lighthearted fun, and the teacher kindly helped decide the winner. Food and drink was lovely and great venue. The painting was challenging but not too difficult.

Really enjoyed it and highly recommend. Will be coming back

As usual a great paint party - the two hours just flew by.
I finished the class with a great sense of accomplishment. Despite not having much painting experience the instructor gave us step by step instructions to complete our masterpieces. It was great fun.

Ursula Lepping Sep 2022


Really good fun. I lay painted when I did the bathroom. So really no prior skills needed.

Diane Aug 2022


I attended Duke Street Market art class in Liverpool.
The teacher was very good, also, the class and the venue had a good vibe.
I liked the materials provided and really enjoyed the class.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, but I felt that it took up too much time. I felt a bit rushed towards the end and would have liked to spend more time painting.
Having said that, I would attend more classes. ✅

Sandra Miller Aug 2022


Loved our painting experience! The teacher was welcoming, the venue perfect and the food delicious. As new painters we would have liked a little more guidance on brush strokes/techniques for blending. The second half went really quickly and we both felt a bit rushed. Would we do it again-YES!

Adele Murphy Aug 2022


Chelsea our artist was helpful with our artwork and made the experience joyful. Food excellent and a great experience would highly recommend it.

Really calm, relaxing experience. Teacher (I’m so sorry I can’t remember her name) was lovely. Didn’t feel like anything was a problem and was very generous with offering out more paint and supplies which I thought was really good. The painting by Klimt was maybe a bit too challenging but that’s because I’m very much a beginner!

Paint and Sip Party review by Sue Ledsham - Chester

Liz Richards Jun 2022

Katie was great. She was less experienced perhaps than Ellie and Lindsay that we have had before but made up for it with enthusiasm and Lindsay aiding was just perfect.

Venue as always friendly great beautiful site. Good and drinks nice but a little pricey.

Paint republic good materials and variety. Could do with more colours (all the primary for those wishing to do a twist on the design).

Fave is just the benefits of paint republic on mental health, fun and clean night out. Love the online stuff for the girls at home too.
Thanks for all you do.

Johannah Duckett Jun 2022

We had a nice time but missed the “party” atmosphere we have enjoyed on previous occasions. We were also rushed through the painting and missed the help, encouragement and lively approach we were used to with Ellie. I’ve also very much enjoyed some of the online events.

Penny Morris Jun 2022


Really great fun for a group of four of us with mixed levels of painting experience! Teachers were fab.

Therese Durrant Jun 2022


I’ve been to six of these workshops now and usually the pace is more relaxed, with time to ‘sip’ and socialise. The Tuscan Peace canvas was quite involved and the provider was rushing to get it all done within the two hour time slot. This made some of our group feel pressured and because of this, the workshop was not as enjoyable. Our party had booked the class for a special birthday occasion and we were unable to sit together. I would suggest that this painting requires more time - perhaps 3 hours rather than 2? Having done other paintings with you at a more leisurely pace I know that it’s usually good fun. Anyone who was trying this paint class for the first time, I think, would be put off from attending again. The two first-timers in our party weren’t really impressed. They felt that the class was over subscribed, there was not enough elbow room and, like I said before, they felt pressured to rush their painting. I felt embarrassed that I had recommended this activity, especially to those in our party that had not painted before and were left feeling that they couldn’t keep up with the pace.

Teacher's response

Hi Therese

Thank you for the feedback.

As always our concept is to have fun, provide a space to create a masterpiece, and not take the art too seriously.

Our Paint and Sip sessions have attracted many with differing levels of experience and a want to be a part of something unique and fun. We believe that even if a painting is difficult, that fun can be had and creativity can be unleashed.

We cannot always rely on people attending with this belief in mind, and we are reflecting ourselves on whether we should stipulate paintings as either “advanced” and “beginner” levels going forward.
It is hard to know if a new and exclusive painting will work with a new crowd and we are thankful for your feedback with regards to the difficulty of this one.

We do respond to feedback and we are reflective after sessions to determine whether we are unlikely to schedule a new painting in the future. We remember your families paintings and we thought each and every one of your pictures were brilliant.

As always, thank you for your support.
The Paint Republic Team
