Cost: £20 per head | Minimum 10 children | Duration 2 hours

Parties usually take place on Saturdays and Sundays, We can do other days depending on availability -just give us a call.

We accommodate all age groups and provide a fully equipped studio for the art session.  Most families bring their own drinks and cake, which they can serve in a separate reception room. We can also arrange catering with our local cafe if you’d rather just turn up without the fuss.

Art in a story (2 – 4 yrs)

We base this 2 hour session on our ‘art in a story’ class (Thursday & Friday mornings – see timetable) e.g Anansi the spider, Jack and the beanstalk, The Princess & the frog.

  • Children arrive and get involved in a ‘conversation in drawing’ infused with music and rhythms then we start the story once they’ve all arrived.
  • First activity involves making a house for the character e.g hat house which they can wear.
  • The story continues involving painting, clay work & musical elements.
  • They have a 15-20 break with food in reception.
  • They finish the story making a item with clay, glue glitter and mixed media.
  • Some parents like to leave time for a tradition party game such as ‘pass the parcel’
  • End with a birthday cake which you can bring with you.
  • By the end of the session children will have 3 pieces to take home.

Art Parties (5 yrs +)

We tailor the occasion according to your child’s interests. Examples of themes we’ve done in the past are ‘Treasure Islands’, ‘Wonderful Winged Creatures’ and ‘Pop Art Profiles ‘ (a hit with teenagers).

  • Children turn up and get involved in a ‘conversation in drawing’ inspired by the theme, once they’ve all arrived we start the design.
  • Each child makes a design for a headpiece which we call a wearable sketchbook.
  • They use their design to make a drawing on canvas which is then painted (using painting techniques)
  • Whilst there work dries they have a 15minute break with food in reception.
  • They unmask their paintings to discover a tote bag.
  • They develop there design in clay and mixed media.
  • The get to take home their bags of creative goodies!

Teenagers Tie Die & fashion label design (ages 13 +)

  • On arrival they are inspired by the brief to create a tie die t-shirt and design a fashion label.

Art Techniques & Mediums

During the workshop we explore a variety of mediums and techniques starting with  drawing, developing ideas on canvas or cloth (a tote bag or t-shirt wrapped as a surprise). We can also offer printmaking  with the etching press or screen printing for older children.

We can cater for children as young as 3 up to grown ups! However if you want to have more than 4 adults attend we do ask for an additional £5 per adult and invite the grown ups to take part.
