While we’ve all been twiddling our thumbs at home for the past five months, the need to go out and have a good ol’ time is at an all-time high. You might be sick of your lover at home, but nothing boosts a mood better than a date night!
We know there is some stress and uncertainty about leaving the house, but we have found some COVID-Safe activities that you and your partner will look forward to. So, call the babysitter or tell work you’re not free this Saturday night because you’ve got some new plans with your loved one.
Get messy with Pinot & Picasso
What could be better than drinking wine, having a laugh and trying to be a better painter than your beau? Pinot & Picasso is Australia’s #1 Paint and Sip Experience. With artworks spanning from cultural icons, overseas destinations, and nature’s delights – there is something for everyone. Whether you’re a self-proclaimed artist or an absolute novice, our step-by-step instructions make it easy to follow that you may even be surprised with your inner Picasso. You can also put your relationship to the ultimate test with our ‘Paint Your Partner’ sessions making a comeback next month.
Spend a day at an Art Gallery
After you’ve tried to be better than the real Picasso, pay your respects to some of the greatest artists in the world at art galleries in your capital city. Whether it’s Contemporary, Renaissance, Surrealism, Abstract or Pop Art, you’re bound to be breath-taken by the paintings you see. Stroll through the corridors and take those candid shots for Insta to let everyone know you’ve actually left the house!
Go to a Pottery Class
What could be sexier than recreating ‘that’ scene from ‘Ghost’? Get your hands dirty and play around with clay to create something unique. The taster classes will allow you to practise your hand-building and wheel-throwing skills. Whether you create a masterpiece or a wonky pot, you will be sure to enjoy yourself. Here are some pottery locations to check out: Clay Sydney (NSW), The Pottery Shed (NSW), The Ceramic Studio (QLD), Urban Clay (VIC).
Show off at a Cooking Class
Time to look away from takeaway menus and dust up on your culinary skills. The best thing about cooking classes is the variety of cuisines on offer. ClassBento has an extensive list of classes and workshops to try in all states. From sushi and dumplings to noodles and pasta, nail these cultural cooking techniques, and we’re sure your partner will be impressed. Even go down the sweet path with chocolate and dessert classes.
Go traditional with a Movie Night
So, you have watched everything Netflix has suggested for you? Good news! New blockbuster movies are now being released in cinemas from this week. The big chain cinemas, Hoyts and Event Cinemas, reopened in July and implemented social distancing rules which is reassuring for customers. If you have missed the feeling of sitting in cinemas with a jumbo-sized popcorn or a choc top, plan your next viewing now.
