Join us on the Rooftop for this Riopelle-inspired pop-up event!

Begin your evening with an inspiring walk through the newly opened Riopelle: Crossroads in Time exhibition. Discover the dynamic works of Jean-Paul Riopelle, whose innovative techniques and bold compositions have left a lasting mark on the art world. Our knowledgeable guides will lead you through the exhibition, providing fascinating insights into Riopelle’s life and artistic journey.

After the exhibition tour, head up to the rooftop for a delightful combination of wine and chocolate artistry. Enjoy a perfectly paired glass of wine as you unleash your creativity alongside chocolatier Helen Staines from Decadence Chocolates. Helen will guide you in painting your own indulgent chocolate creation, blending rich flavours with artistic flair.

Don’t worry if you can’t resist sampling your chocolate masterpiece on the spot – that’s part of the fun!
