FAQ

The Answers You Need

Where is The Splattered Canvas?

Our events are currently held in the heart of Bristol's creative hot-spot, Stokes Croft.  

Whilst starting up in Bristol we are supporting/ being supported by the local community enterprise, The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft, you will find us their venue...

 

'The Space' 

17-25 Jamaica St, Bristol BS2 8JW

We are also able to bring The Splattered Canvas to you, using a marquee to contain the mess we set it up and clean it up so you can get creative in your own back garden!

Is there parking?

On street pay and display car parking can be found throughout Stokes Croft and St Pauls. Additionally there are two car parks within 10 minutes walk; NCP on Bond Street and Cabot Circus on Newfoundland Rd, BS2 9AB

How long will the experience last?

Time slots in The Splattered Canvas are 45 minutes long. There is 15 minutes allocated between each session so you have time to clean up and box your canvas to take home.

Can I practice before I decide what to do on my canvas?

Yes! There is scrap cardboard around for you to trial different techniques!

Can Children take part?

Everybody is welcome to take part in the experience! All children must be supervised by an adult at all times for their safety.

Is the paint safe for children?

Will I get messy / my clothes stained?

The whole point in the experience is to get messy! The paint we use is washable but we cannot guarantee it won't stain your clothes. We provide biodegradable ponchos, shoe and hair covers,  and eye protection to help you out as best we can but suggest you don't wear your favourite clothes or shoes!

The types of paint we have available to use is the same paint used regularly at Early Years settings with toddlers and young children; tempera and poster paints. Both paint manufacturers state that the product is not suitable for children under 36 months.

What refreshments will be available?

You can take your wet canvas home with you in a box or we can post it to you for a fee.

It is really important to us that our event is inclusive. The experience is set up with everybody in mind and we are always looking for ways to improve our acessibility.
'The Space' has disabled access but sadly no accessible toilets. We apologise to anyone who can't come along for this reason. We are working out how to bring ourselves to you!

During the day we will be offering a small selection of homemade baked goods - all proceeds will be donated to Bristol Mind Charity.

How long will it take for my canvas to dry? How will I get it home?
