PopUp Painting is the leading ‘sip and paint’ business in the country, delivering close to 60 events a month across the UK. Now established across London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool and Leeds – we are now looking to expand into Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Our mission is to Unleash Creativity, and to bring art out of the classroom and gallery, into the places people meet on an every day basis. Our events are ‘social painting experiences’, where people enjoy an evening with a wine glass in one hand, paintbrush in the other – no experience needed!
We are looking for Artists and for Event Managers in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Events last 2.5 hours plus set up and clean down time, totalling c.4 hours. Most events take place in the evening and weekends. You will need to be flexible and able to travel.
Artists – you will be responsible for leading events and guiding guests step by step. You will need to prepare work in advance and assist in set up and clean down.
Event Managers – you will be responsible for running events and customer care as well as some administration, stock management and transporting kit. You will also need to lead the set up and clean down of events. Managers must be experienced in Customer Care and or Operations including dealing with the public.
Roles can be combined.
Hours – hours are subject to negotiation and will be between 8 hours per month and 26 hours per month.
Who should apply?
