    Paint With Coffee?

    Who knew that coffee was so much more than a drink that slaps you awake every morning? This coffee painting workshop lets you get artistic with your morning brew. Abstracts, graphics, and landscapes, paint away with just coffee and water on cartridge sheets. And have a beautiful piece of art {that also smells absolutely divine} by the end of it. Now that’s is our idea of scented paper. Book your place right away as there are only a few seats left.

    When: Saturday, July 15

    Where: Dialogues Cafe, 17th Main, 100 Feet Road, 4th Block Koramangala

    Timings: 4pm-6pm

    Price: INR 1,320: Find tickets here.
