Wine and paint party at Sour Grapes in Morpeth

A party with a difference is being held at a Morpeth bar in aid of charity.

Artists and drinkers, as well as non-drinkers, are invited to join in with a wine and paint party at the town’s Sour Grapes on Monday, March 21.

The event will see participants spending two hours painting their own masterpiece while having fun.

No experience in painting and artwork is necessary as step-by-step guidance is given on the day.

All equipment needed for the event is provided by the organisers, and participants will be able to take home a 16ins x 20ins masterpiece that they have created.

The work that will be used for the March session is a picture of an owl hanging on a branch.

Sessions have been running on a monthly basis, with the most recent one taking place on February 24.

The cost is £15 per person, with all profits to go to Downs Syndrome North East, which is the leading organisation for the help and support of all people with Down’s Syndrome and their families and friends covering Northumberland, Tyneside, Wearside, Durham and Teesside.
