Workshop FAQs

Posted by Kristina Lough on

How long are your workshops?

Our Paint & Sip Workshops are approximately 2 hours long, but we do also offer 30-45 minute "mini workshops", typically held at bridal showers or similar private party celebrations.

I'm interested in booking a Private Party or Mini Bridal Shower Workshop at my home or a local venue, what's the next step?

We're so excited you're thinking of scheduling your gathering with us!  Click HERE to visit our Private Party page for additional information & to fill out our Private Party form, or email us at

Do you ever hold fundraisers?

We do!  Our team loves collaborating to support causes local to our community.  Click HERE to fill out our contact form, or email us at for more information.

Do you give charity donations, such as raffles?

Yes, as often as we can.  Please email  We would be happy to consider a donation.

What time should I arrive for my workshop?

We're fortunate to work with some amazing venues, all of which offer some combination of wine tastings, beautiful views, bites, local shopping & more.  That said, you are welcome to arrive early & enjoy that extra time on location.  However please note, we may not be fully set up for the class until about 15-20 minutes prior to start time.  Please Contact Us with any specific venue questions.

Do you choose where everyone sits, how can I make sure I'm with my friends?

For parties of three or more, when tickets are not purchased under one order, we ask that one member of the group email  to let us know the names of each person that would like to sit together.  Alternatively, when checking out, names can be noted under "Special Instructions for Seller".  Should you purchase all of your party's seats under one order, by default our system will tell us you're coming with a larger group.  At nearly all our events we put out small reserved signs for groups of 3+, & doing this ensures all parties get to sit together, regardless of when they each arrive. 

I placed my order, now where is my ticket?

At this time we do not email or mail formal tickets, & your order confirmation email will serve as your ticket.  We check guests in at each of our workshops by asking for their name, & sometimes order number.  Your order number can be found at the top of your order confirmation email, & you should receive that confirmation message shortly after processing payment.  If you have any ticket questions, please email us at or click HERE to contact us through our website.

Do I need a ticket in advance to attend your events?

While we do our best to offer drop-in seats, only tickets purchased in advance through or one of our venue partners are guaranteed.  Please note nearly all of the venues we work with have a maximum class size, & we prep many of our supplies in advance, meaning quantity is often limited to those who RSVP'd prior to the event date.  This is why joining a workshop in advance is key to reserving your spot(s).

What is your cancellation/transfer policy?

Please note we cannot refund a class cancellation made within 7 calendar days of the event. No exceptions. If you are unable to attend a class we will make every reasonable effort to transfer your seat to another event, but if you do not notify us saying you are unable to attend within 24 HOURS of your class we unfortunately will be unable to refund or transfer your seat.

I can't attend & the event is tomorrow, can I gift my tickets to a friend?

Yes, but we ask that you email (& include your order number) to let us know so we can note their name(s) on our attendee list.

Are your Paint & Sips 21+ only?

While we do not have any age restrictions on our end, each of our venue partners have different rules & regulations regarding age, therefore we recommend contacting your specific venue directly to see what their requirements are.

Do you sell workshop tickets through other websites?

Nearly all Painted by the Shore tickets are solely sold through  The only exceptions are private party/fundraising events, or through select venues that we collaborate with (i.e. Rosabianca Vineyards or Priam Vineyards).  At this time we do not authorize any other site or individual to sell or resell our tickets, & as such can only honor those purchased through us directly or the venues we work with.  If you have any ticket questions before placing an order, please email us at or click HERE to contact us through our website.

I lost my glass baking instructions, what do I do?

Place your glasses on a foil lined baking sheet in a room temperature oven.  Turn the oven to 350 degrees, & set the timer to 35 minutes.  The intention is for the glasses to warm up gradually.  At 35 minutes, turn the oven off, & allow your glasses to cool fully inside the oven.  We find it best to bake our glass around 7:30 pm, then take them out the next morning after they've cooled overnight.  

Do you sell Gift Cards?

We do!  All Gift Cards are digital & have a specific code that can be redeemed directly through our website.  Click HERE to order.
