Paint and Sip FAQs


Private Functions FAQ

Yes, you can do a UV glow paint and sip at Uptown.

We offer both public sessions and private sessions. However, we can’t do UV paint at your location, then we would use normal paint (due to equipment required).

You can see the gallery on our website for paintings to choose from if you do a private class. 

The early bird price for public sessions is $29. For private sessions the price per person depends on how many people you are in your group. See information on pricing below.

You can wear what you want to the paint and sip, but recommend not wearing clothes that are especially valuable to you, in case they would get paint on them. But nice, normal clothes. The paint usually goes away if you wash it straight away, but it’s harder with white clothes.



Booking Cancellations

If you need to cancel your booking for any reason, the process if via our website with a rescheduling cost of $10 per person. Either provide the date you want to rebook, or comment will advise future date when ready. This needs to be done before the session time so we can advise the teacher re setup requirements for each session. The cancellation cost is to cover our admin time with rescheduling our largest admin cost. Please go to


Do we run kids workshops?

As our Brisbane City studio shops at Uptown Shopping centre do not have toilets inside the studio space we can not offer kids workshops as we can not chaperone the kids individually to the toilets as required. However we can offer sessions for Families with Adult participation with under 18 year olds. We would recommend for 6 year old plus as long as they are interested in doing the activity, as they can loose concentration and make a mess. Parents are fully responsible for supervision as required the same as any public atmosphere. We would recommend our week day and night sessions. The weekend day sessions are fine, however the Friday and Saturday nights are 18 plus Adult only classes where patrons want to let down there hair, and be kid free and have organised baby sitters to attend. 


Ceramic Painting sessions after Clay and Sip

We have a complete Pottery Workshop, with kiln firing services which is additional $15 for your tray of works per person
We also have Ceramic Glaze Painting sessions on Sunday afternoons at 1pm which is only $15 seating cost. The pieces then would need a second firing which is additional $15 per piece the second time round. From the first clay and sip session allow 2 weeks for the first firing before booking in a ceramic painting session 
The clay and sip is hand built pottery session, and firing is paid separately on the day if required. 
If you fire your items which is $15 per person per tray, then you can come back for the ceramic glaze painting session once they are fired once. 
The $15 class is the ceramic painting session, which does not include any firing or pieces to paint
If you have your own fired pieces you can paint them and the second glaze firing is $15 per item this time round, rather then per tray
We also have pottery pieces premade and fired ready for painting, from $29 which also includes the $15 firing for that item
