Keep Creative at Home with These Virtual Classes

There’s never been a better time to finally try a new hobby, even better than you can pick up said hobby from the comfort of your own home. The upside of isolation if you can now dive into a plethora of creative classes from your own kitchen table. Get your creative juices flowing in a virtual painting class, or channel your wine connoisseur with virtual wine tastings and degustation's, we’re got something for everyone.

Virtual Wine Tasting

City Winery has taken its cellar door into the online realm with its virtual wine and dining experiences. Degustations and wine tastings usually mean clean white plates, 4+ sets of cutleries laid out in order, and chic wine glasses. But given we have the option to take this sensory experience to the comfort of our own home, wine not give it a whirl. Think your dining table, the plates mum gave you, a candle for added ambiance, it’s a degustation on your terms. Bottoms up!

Virtual Art Gallery

If you can’t go to the art gallery, let the exhibition come to you. It’s been a challenging year for art institutions across the nation, but one good thing to come out of the setbacks of Covid-19 is the ways Australians have been able to access art without leaving their homes. From online talks and tours to filmed performances, galleries have found alternative ways to share art in the virtual world. Darwin gallery, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT), has made its 2020 exhibition accessible online no matter where you live. Explore all 65 artworks via its virtual gallery.
