We have teamed up with a daring and larger than life creative to help craft something special for you to remember your time in Cape Town by. Lily Brannon has experimented with anything from beetroot to spices in the search for the perfect piece. She discovered her ultimate talent in the medium of red wine. We’ll get to experience this as she guides you through the process.
Welcome To Ricks Cafe
Rick’s Café is situated in the heart of cosmopolitan Cape Town on Kloof Street in a charming 135 year old Victorian building, decorated in a style reminiscent of the 1942 movie classic “Casablanca”.
Creating Art With Wine
Being inspired by the vibrant atmosphere you will do a creative expression exercise followed by a step-by-step session of creating your own artwork in red wine. Lily tends to adapt her sessions and the subject matter according to the interest and creative ability of the participants. During this session you will receive 2 drinks and lunch. At the end of the session, you may take your artworks home as souvenirs. In her words: “Painting with wine allows me to create from that experimental playfulness that I had as a little girl. Wine is layered in symbolism. It is ever-changing from the moment it touches the paper and comes to life. Using it as a paint medium is unpredictable and that’s what makes it attractive”. Lily will guide you through the most creative of processes as you craft your very own wine art in a space where we’re able to share, enjoy and celebrate. You don’t need any prior art experience for this, Lily is an incredible teacher and is able to show you just how talented we all can be with a brush in our hands.

Local artist Lily Brannon has been exhibiting and teaching art since 2010. She started experimenting with wine as a paint medium in 2015 and fell in love with the unpredictability of it. She has a passion for wine, travellers and creative expression, so thought it best to bring them together. She loves to teach and see the way people's faces light up when they have created something, especially when they haven't had any prior art training.
