Our name pays homage to Frida Kahlo who was considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists who began painting mostly self-portraits.  Our studios, along with many Sip n’ Paint studio’s around the globe, feature this famous artist in one of the paintings within their collections.  Some of you may have already attended one of our sessions where we featured this painting of the famous monobrowed Kahlo.

The name “Freda” also has a personal connection with one of our co-founders, Rebecca. Her grandmother Freda Podesta was born in Hobart in 1916. One of her first jobs was just across the road from our Hobart studio at the iconic IXL jam factory. Freda Podesta lived her life to the fullest… she loved travelling, was all about having fun and didn’t mind a little “sipping”

The blending of the two Frida’s – One a world-renowned artist and the other a lover of all things fun sums up exactly what our studio stands for…….. Fun art!

Your experience in our studio should be just that….. an art experience laced with fun and laughter while sipping on your favourite drop. A place to connect with friends while releasing your inner artist. The two worlds collide to create something truly amazing!

See you in the studio!


Whatever you are wearing, we have aprons for everyone to help you keep your whites white and your party dress clean. Having said that, we don’t take any responsibility for spilt paint on clothes….. don’t cry over spilt paint!
