Franchisee Focus: Danielle Weber

Talented artist¬†Danielle Weber¬†is a proud co-owner of our¬†Pinot & Picasso Malvern¬†studio. The Malvern studio was our first location to open in the state of Victoria, which was incredibly¬†exciting for us! We’ve been stoked to have Danielle onboard with us and we chatted with her about her¬†Pinot & Picasso¬†journey as a Franchisee.¬†

 

What convinced you to join the Pinot & Picasso as a Franchisee?

“The concept seemed like an innovative way to share my love of creating art with many others in the community. I loved the positive, ‘family’-like vibe the Pinot & Picasso crew presented and the way in which an inclusive, fun environment was created in every session for people of all ages and backgrounds.”¬†

What was the process like becoming a P&P Franchisee? 

“We jumped into the partnership together quite naturally, fitting out the space with our combined efforts – so much so I painted the mural celebrating Picasso with a tribute piece to create a vibe conducive to the conviviality of the Pinot & Picasso experience.”¬†

What’s been your favourite thing about Pinot & Picasso?
“Getting feedback from family and friends experiencing the sessions and seeing the enjoyment of the participants week after week, including during the difficult times of 2020.”

How has your studio been received by your community?
“The community has embraced the creation of this space with local traders telling me that it brought a much needed ‘breath of fresh air’ to the precinct and added a much needed vibe to the area. Shoppers often pop in to ask about the classes and admire my artworks. Many locals enjoy a chat and share that they welcome the whole concept to their community. This is the most rewarding aspect of my involvement.”¬†

Since becoming a Franchise Owner with P&P, what benefits have you seen in life and business?
“The biggest benefit has been the opportunity to share the joy of painting with a larger audience. My capacity to share the love of art and the benefits it brings is far greater through these experiences.”

If there was one reason to join P&P, what would it be?
“If you like bringing enjoyment to others, this would be it. Everyone can participate and take something wonderful away with them. All participants are pleasantly surprised that they can produce a work of art, no matter how complex or simple. No one leaves disappointed and the fun to be had is contagious.”

Spotlight on: Hobart

P&P Hobart

What could be more exciting than owning a business interstate?! Pinot & Picasso is now offering the exciting opportunity for potential Franchise Owners to operate a studio in one of our great capital cities!

Our spotlight is making its way down the east coast of Australia and across the Bass Strait to the historic city of Hobart! Tasmania, especially Hobart, is becoming one of the more popular states to visit amongst Aussies.

 
What’s so good about Hobart?
 

While it may be Australia’s smallest capital city, it certainly is larger than life with its love for cultural phenomenons, sensational food, and natural landscapes.¬†

  • Art is in its nature

Hobart could be synonymous with art itself. You have the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery on the waterfront as well as the Salamanca Arts Centre in Salamanca Place. However, the true art hub is just outside the city in Berriedale. The Museum of Old and New Art, more iconically known as MONA, is the top attraction in Hobart. MONA is home to the most unique exhibitions seen in Australia and celebrates all art forms. There are also great restaurants in the museum that adds to the fine dining scene of Hobart. 

  • Fine dining all around

In all precincts of the city, you’ll find some outstanding restaurants that celebrate different cuisines. North Hobart has a great variety of cafes and restaurants that you’ll be going back to almost every day! The great thing about Hobart being a small city is that you’re bound to find a lovely eatery in any street. There are a total of 11 restaurants within the radius of Hobart that are hatted restaurants!¬†

  • It’s a real natural wonder

No one can miss the exquisite backdrop of¬†Mount Wellington. The views are just as great from below as they are on top of the mountain. It’s a view you’ll never get sick of in Hobart. Whether it’s a clear summer day or the mountain is capped with snow in winter, it’s truly divine all year round. It’s also not too far to travel to some great natural wonders such as Bruny Island and the Huon Valley.¬†

  • It’s a market city

One of the must-visit attractions of Hobart is the Salamanca Markets. There is plenty of food, craft and small business vendors that sell their amazing products every weekend. The Salamanca Market takes place every Saturday from 8:30am to 3pm. Salamanca Place is a very historic precinct of the city. It also has some incredible restaurants, galleries and stories in the sandstone buildings and arcades. There are some nice fresh produce markets across the weekends in the city and outer suburbs as well. 

  • Art festivals for all seasons

Art & culture is celebrated in both summer and winter in Hobart.¬†MONA FOMA¬†is an annual arts & music festival held in January at MONA. It showcases unique works of art across different art forms. The winter version of this festival is¬†Dark Mofo¬†which runs in June. The city transforms with large scale light installations and incorporates the best of Hobart’s food with winter feasts. This nighttime festival has featured musical performers such as FKA Twigs and many local eyebrow-raising artists. Dark Mofo ain’t for the faint-hearted!
