Create your own unique Country Canvases painting masterpiece in a gorgeous country setting, whilst grazing on a delicious local picnic!

Country Canvases

We have partnered with the talented local artist, Tia Alysse, to give you the opportunity to pair a Daylesford Picnic Box with a Country Canvases painting classes.

Tia’s classes are BYO food and drinks, but if you’d prefer not to have to arrange your own food, you can order a Daylesford Picnic Box packed with picnic favourites made by small-batch artisans in and around Daylesford & Malmsbury. Each box includes everything you need to put together a grazing board for you to snack on during your 4-hour class – all yours to keep including a calico tote bag so you can pack up your picnic kit and any leftover to take home with you.

Scroll down to select from either a gourmet or taster box, with the option to add a local non-alcoholic drinks pack. On your way to the studio, we recommend you swing past Zig Zag Winery (just 5 minutes from the studio) to pick up a bottle of your favourite wine to enjoy at the class (Tia will supply glasses).

Order ahead via the links below, and we’ll deliver your box directly to the studio on the morning of your class. We kindly request that orders are placed at least 48hours prior to your class (please book your class prior to ordering a picnic box).

Tia’s Malmsbury Studio is an easy 30 minute drive from Daylesford at 34 Davy Street Malmsbury (just outside of Malmsbury). More instructions.
