Join us for Wine & Design, a hands-on workshop where you can meet the maker, Tricia Matthews, while sipping on some of Gibson Wines favourite drops.

Artist – Tricia Matthews

What you will do:

This fun two-hour class will introduce you to the fundamentals of Mandala painting to create the perfect, uniform dots to produce your unique piece of wearable art.

You can create a pair of earrings, a necklace or a keyring under the watchful guidance of Tricia. If time allows, you can create a second piece too!

While your creative skills are in action, enjoy three generous samplers of Gibson Wines favourite drops.

Once your masterpiece is dry, Tricia will add the hardware to turn it into your chosen medium. The perfect chance to view her artwork on display in the Cellar Door and in the charming old on-site cottage.

Make a day of it and pack a picnic lunch to enjoy on the lawns of Gibson Wines. Grab a rug from the on-site supplies, play some lawn games, nibble on cheese and enjoy a glass or bottle of wine from the Cellar Door (at your own cost). Strictly no BYO.

About your teacher:

Artist, Tricia Matthews, is a Greenock local. As a school teacher, she has always been an advocate for The Arts. Her students are motivated and creative when The Arts are incorporated into the rest of their curriculum.

Tricia loves to create art through upcycling. After working on a series of manikin mosaics for SALA 2021, she is now obsessed in creating mandalas on 78 rpm records. Each mandala is a unique artwork and, where possible, she keeps the integrity of the label and incorporates it into the design.

A range of Tricia’s mandala artwork will be on display and available for purchase at this workshop including earrings, necklaces and rings. She will also be displaying some garden art in a mini exhibition on the day including mosaic wall art and bee baths.
