Who can dispute that rustic is so in right now, not me at least. Nothing makes me more excited than to relax with a glass of something cold in a beautiful place.
As a mum, the chances I catch to enjoy moments like this are pretty few and far between, life gets so busy. Between school runs, kids sports, homework, work and all the other balls we have in the air there isn't much time for us.

There really is and this is why we are so excited that we are partnering with the Soul Nook Collective to bring our Sip 'n' Paint Picnics to the shady rustic grounds of the old Marburg Church, Marburg.
So where is Marburg anyway?
Marburg is a quaint rural township, unplugged from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sitting between the City of Ipswich and the Somerset Region sunny Marburg is less than 20 minutes from Ipswich CBD.
As soon as you turn off the Warrego you can be forgiven for thinking you where hundreds of kms from anywhere. The winding roads, horse paddocks, the hares darting quickly across the road, it is almost like you are transported into a peaceful version of what once was. The Marburg Pub stands proudly in the centre of town 140 years young, surrounded by antique stores and the locals that have lived in the same plots of land for generations.
Why visit Marburg for a Picnic 'n' Paint (5 Reasons you will love it!)
The Time Warp
Sometimes you just need to unplug (and let's face it, it can be hard to do that at home), so the rustic feel of the old Marburg church delicately dressed by Taryn of the Soul Nook allows you to lean into that feeling of relaxation.
Not your conventional learn to paint class, on arrival you will be greeted with a beautiful sprawling picnic prepared just for you! Enjoy grazing on delicious treats as you are guided step by step on how to paint the perfect keepsake.
The Venue & The Style
Love vintage, rustic and styled? Your picnic will be perfectly matched to the grounds of the Old Marburg Church to present a luxuriously styled picnic experience. From Candles to Cushions, wicker seats to fairy lights (and more) you will feel pampered and prepared to apply yourself to your painting.
It's easy to think that events like this might retail for over $150 (or more) but this mini weekend escape comes in neatly under $100! Need another hook? The council offers generous rebates for groups that book together or travel to attend (ask us how to claim it).
Grazing platters are all the rage these days and the soul nook collective does not disappoint! Taryn prepares the perfect grazing platter for the group to share with just the right amount of everything to ensure your afternoon has the fuel you need to create your masterpiece!
