Illustrate Your Own Beer Label

Illustrate Your Own Beer Label

with Mike Watt and Blair Sayer

When art + beer combine!

Illustrate and design your very own unique beer label with illustrator dudes Blair Sayer + Mike Watt.

In this 2.5 hr workshop, you'll have ample one-on-one time with Mike and Blair as you bring your design to life.

Oh! And because we like to make a real go of things, we'll serve some beers and snacks too. It's usually Mary's fried chicken, or some charcuterie and cheese from Continental, and a couple of tins from Young Henrys.

About Mike + Blair:
Mike’s introduction to illustration was winning the Toohey’s Extra Dry 696 beer label competition over 10 years ago, this became the label of the TED long neck for several years. He went on to work with Murray’s Brewing and has designed dozens of beer labels and tap decals since.

Blair Sayer has always loved to draw. When the New Zealand ex-pat was younger, his days were spent climbing electric fences, taunting medium sized dogs, and hoping for a rainy day so he could draw more.  Blair turned semi-professional in his mid-teens when he started cartooning for the local rag. Wellington School of Design was his next step, and after graduating in 1993, he has been illustrating ever since. Craft beer, tee shirts and gig posters are his favourite canvases.

Blair Sayer

About Blair Sayer

Blair Sayer has always loved to draw. When the New Zealand ex-pat was younger, his days were spent climbing electric fences, taunting medium sized dogs, and hoping for a rainy day so he could draw more. Blair turned semi-professional in his mid-teens when he started cartooning for the local rag. Wellington School of Design was his next step, and after graduating in 1993, he has been illustrating ever since. Blair styles vary, as he's easily bored and enjoys a challenge. His clients are varied as much, with craft beer, tee shirts and gig posters being his favorite canvases. Blair now lives in Glenmore Park (posh Penrith) and works in the city most days. He's always up for a chat, even more so a beer - and loves that he gets to enjoy both at his Cultivate Folk workshops!
