Sip & Paint at Volcanic Hills Winery

Colour Drop Design brings the beautiful, ancient art of water marbling to the 21st century by inviting you to be the artist. Come and make your own water marbled silk scarf. We have four dates available - September 26, October 25, November 22, and December 6.

Each 2 hour workshop begins with a hands on demonstration. Each artist chooses their colours and floats the paint, one drop at a time, on the surface of the water, then uses marbling combs, rakes, or stylus to create the design of their liking.

For any questions regarding this event, please contact Krista from Colour Drop Designs. Register online to reserve your spot. All ages welcome. All tickets include a wine tasting.
