Punters unleashed their creative side at Wild Saffron in Clare last Friday night at the inaugural Paint and Plonk event, hosted by Meg Mader from The Journey Studio. The evening was a resounding success with tickets for the event quickly selling out. No artistic experience was necessary – just a sense of fun and there was plenty of fun to be had. The aforementioned ‘plonk’ helped to liven up the night and get the creative juices flowing. Meg provided both step-by-step instructions and art materials for the evening, culminating in each person departing with two vibrant ink paintings depicting flamingos and owls or any other desired creation. Watch this space in the near future for more Paint and Plonk!
