About two years ago, Jeanette Linkenbach opened a studio for painting events at Ginnheimer Landstraße 109a in Frankfurt. The concept, which Linkenbach got to know during a three-year stay in the USA, is as simple as it is ingenious: under the guidance of local artists*, guests can create their own works of art in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere - true to the motto "anyone can paint". These painting parties are not about shining with previous knowledge, but about living out creativity, having fun and being sociable.
Whether for hen parties, birthdays or corporate events, the painting parties quickly enjoyed great popularity in Frankfurt as well. But for Jeanette Linkenbach it was quickly clear that the special icing on the cake is still missing. In addition to the opportunity to paint pictures or ceramics under supervision, a local product should also be offered. The ideal candidate was quickly found: the Bembel! It is perfect for creative design. In addition, the experience with ceramics and the available space made the step quickly feasible. And so the first Paint your Bembel Party was offered at the Atelier Painting Parties on 08 November 2019 - with resounding success.
Due to the increasing demand for further Paint your Bembel Parties, these quickly became a fixed part of the offer at the Atelier, until the Corona pandemic also caused a longer forced break here. But fortunately this is now over. With a strict hygiene concept and adherence to the necessary distances, Paint your Bembel parties can take place again. But what actually awaits you at this creative event?
First you choose your Bembel from three different sizes (2s - 0,5l, 4s - 1l and 8s - 2,0l) when you book. The handmade blanks, which are produced in the Kannenbäckerland in the Westerwald, can then be painted individually with your favourite pattern or motif. Of course you will get professional help in realizing your idea - so don't worry if you are afraid that your artistic talent is not sufficient to create a wonderful Bembel. With the necessary know-how and materials, you will be supported in the 2.5 - 3 hour creative course so that your idea ends up on the Bembel exactly as you imagined it - no matter whether you decide on the classic flower pattern, the Frankfurt skyline or your very own motif. One thing is clear - each Bembel is a real unicum.
The Paint your Bembel parties take place in groups of 4 to a maximum of 20 people. For larger groups, there are always two artists there for you. A refreshing glass of cider, water and snacks are included in every public party. And so that you can enjoy your creativity, the conviviality of the group and the pleasant atmosphere in the studio, a strict hygiene concept is adhered to at every event, which, however, in no way gets in the way of the fun.
The Bembel painted by you are then glazed and fired in a special kiln, which gets over 1000°C hot. After 4 to 5 days you can pick up your finished Bembel work of art. Then you have a real eye-catcher in your four walls or have created a really original birthday or Christmas gift for your loved ones.
For those who want to get creative at home, there's also a "Bembel to go" version. You simply pick up a Bembel blank, brushes and whatever else you need - helpful tips included - and then relax and paint at home. A really nice idea for birthday parties, a JGA or other special occasions.
