Artist's Picnic

Calling all artists to express & portray vintage at Helen & Joey Estate

Calling all artists and wannabe artists.

Helen & Joey is opening up the farm and all of the beauty of this place for those that would like to paint, sketch, draw, sculpt, write or photograph. With vineyard, pasture, forest, panoramic outlooks and the hustle and bustle of harvest and cellar door there are subjects and objects to inspire all.

$50 entry includes morning or afternoon tea and a picnic lunch with a glass of our wine, as well as a complimentary wine tasting.

Limited sketching and drawing materials can also be made available by request and our resident abstract landscape artist will be around to coach and inspire the younger and less confident among us.

Arrangements can also be made for kids.

BYO artistic sensibility.
