Canvas and Cabernet is a concept that was created by Angi Kuun and Kate Woodall in the beginning of 2017 by combining their love for art and wine! Kate has since moved to the USA and will continue creating and teaching arts & crafts.
Angi (that’s me!) teaches all the workshops now.
We call it a “family affair” as I have brought in my sister Pam Kruger as my new partner in crime. Pam has had a lot of experience with creativity and art… from her exquisite skills in cake designing and decorating as well as ceramics and all types of painting. My Mom, Heather Kuun, helps me take care of all the organization leading up to the events.
The Artist behind the brand:
My name is Angi Kuun-Potgieter, born and bred in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I grew up in an extremely “art-filled” household, where my dad is a designer and luthier (he makes musical instruments) and is basically a creative genius. My eldest sister, Tracey is a qualified fashion designer who has her own sewing school and my middle sister, Pam owns a cake business, designing and baking exquisite cakes which are basically edible pieces of art! My Mom, Heather has helped all of us with our business ventures from the start, which makes her an integral part of it all.
I attended the National School of the arts in Braamfontein where I attained an NSC certificate in Art. My subjects were drawing, painting, print making, ceramics, computer graphics, design and jewellery making.
I then studied at Calder School of Interior Design where I attained my Higher Diploma in Interior Design.
After working in that industry for a while, I decided it wasn’t really for me and decided to fall back on my first love – Art!
I focused on furthering my skills and practiced drawing, painting and creating on a daily basis! I did and still do get approached for a lot of custom artwork such as portraiture, murals and other custom artwork (www.facebook.com/angikuunart).
Art has been and will always be my number 1 passion!
The Canvas and Cabernet events are such a great way to get out of the house and do something completely unique, whether it be for a date night, a birthday party, a girls’ night out or whatever the occasion.
Please keep up to date with our events on your Facebook page - www.facebook.com/canvasandcabernetevents
We supply a canvas, easel, different size paint brushes and a reference picture. We show everyone how to create their painting step-by-step while having some laughs along the way. Throughout the evening, we are always available to help you, while you paint the night away.
The atmosphere is made more relaxed by some happy, vibey music playing in the background .
We offer painting events for any corporate team building, bridal showers, birthday parties and whatever other event you may be organising. We will even come to your house or event venue.
