The Art Bar @ Zulu Lulu was started many years ago by a local ceramicist as an opportunity for children and adults alike to paint their own raw ceramic items. It was called The Art Bar as they had a funky wraparound 'bar' that you sat at to do your painting.
Fast forward to today, where it is an art studio attached to the Zulu Lulu Gallery, offering a wide selection of arts and crafts as well as paint your own ceramics. Tables and chairs outside on the verandah or inside offer space for everyone whatever the weather brings!
The Art Bar is owner managed by Vanessa Cadman, a physiotherapist with a love for anything art and craft related! She has a passion for sharing her love of creativity with everyone who comes through the doors, especially helping people 'find' their creative side and realising that it is therapeutic, relaxing and so satisfying to see the end result.
Children learn hand-eye co-ordination, dexterity involving fine motor skills and that their imagination and creativity know no boundaries in an art studio! Screen time doesn't do this.
Adults are reminded to breathe, slow down and go with the creative flow as they rediscover (or discover) creative pursuits.
Time in the Art Bar is the ideal family bonding activity.
On offer at the Art Bar @ Zulu Lulu are paint your own ceramics, either to be fired and glazed (takes 2 weeks in our on-site kiln) or in acrylic paint and varnished for immediate take home, or laser cut wood art painting, dot art, acrylic pouring, kiddies canvas painting and mandala painting. We also have a small selection of artist quality blank canvasses in various sizes if you are brave enough to paint your own masterpiece from scratch.
We love hosting school groups, birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers and team building/corporate end of year groups. Chat to us for ideas and prices. Bookings essential for groups over 6 people.
Our Art Bar on the Move is also available in the Pietermaritzburg to Nottingham Road area. We bring the art activity to your venue, set up, supervise and clean up after the activity.
See you soon for some creative time!
