Bombay Sapphire Artisan Event, Mardi gras Bead art, Stephan Wanger

Example: The Bombay Sapphire Event

 

Come enjoy an evening of art and cocktails in New Orleans while enjoying Bombay Sapphire cocktails and creating a one of a kind Bombay Sapphire inspired portrait or sculpture. Mardi Gras beads are fun to wear—not to mention bestow—but once the party's over, what happens to all of those colorful strands? This Adventure answers that question in a creative, eco-friendly way: Join in for a night of making artwork out of the Mardi Gras necklaces and chowing down on authentic NOLA cuisine at a happy hour-meets-art class. Evening includes exclusive access to the gallery for three and a half hours.
·         Light bites catered to feature Bombay Sapphire inspired dishes
·         Bombay Sapphire cocktail bar inside the gallery featuring signature cocktails made by Gary Hayward, Bombay Sapphire National Brand Ambassador
Gallery owner, artist Stephan Wanger will lead a class in creating the kind of artwork he pioneered incorporating an educational spin on the artisan inspiration provided by the Bombay Sapphire martini. Each guest will create a one of a kind Pop Art–inspired mosaic, made from mostly recycled Mardi Gras beads to showcase Bombay Sapphire Gin.
·         Hand bead large a martini glass in Bombay Sapphire colors and attach their favorite bar tool (branded)
·         Create a framed mosaic (martini) in Bombay Sapphire colors

Guests will enjoy creating and tasting – this is a fun event and focused towards industry appreciation and Artisan program awareness.
