Craft Parties

I run craft parties for adults and children in The Green Shed.

Changes due to Corona Virus.

The Green Shed is now open again for hire and for craft parties. The maximum number of children for the craft parties will now be 5 plus me, in accordance with the new ‘rule of 6’ September 2020. That way they can sit one metre apart at the table.

On arrival, they’ll all use a nice non-sticky hand sanitizer and they’ll also use it before they leave. There will be just me plus one parent of the birthday child inside. No one else, so as to keep it as airy and spacious as possible.

Parents will be asked to wait outside in the garden when they collect their children at the end instead of coming inside as they could previously – I haven’t increased my prices. They’ll stay the same for now.

Children’s Parties

2 hours. £16 per child.

Ages 4/5 yrs upwards.

Children sit around the table and I help them make mini bunting with beautiful fabric and lots of lovely little embellishments. They also make a lavender bag each. There’s a bit of gluing but no sewing.

After about an hour of making they’re ready to have a little quiet play in the garden while we clear the table and bring in the food which is usually pizzas delivered from the lovely local pizzeria that you will have pre-ordered. You pay for that yourself. Then comes the birthday cake which you bring and they usually eat that there and then.

They take their bunting and lavender bags home in a big stripy paper bag so there’s no need for you to provide party bags. It’s nice though if you add a few sweets/bit of chocolate to each bag.

Depending on the ages of the children I’ll need two or three parents to be with us helping with cutting out the fabric and other bits the children might need help with (this helps keep the cost down as I don’t need staff and it’s also nice for the children to have some adults they know in the room).

The parties are very relaxed, informal, great fun and the children go away with something lovely to take home.

Please note, I have an up to date DBS certificate.

Children’s Workshops

2 hours. £20 per child.

Ages 5/6 yrs upwards.

Your child and a few friends can come along to The Green Shed and I’ll help them make beautiful bunting, cards, lavender bags or pictures or a collage using my large collection of fabric and trimmings.

Children can also do a Scrapbook Session. See the sidebar for details.

It’s fun, informal, relaxed and they create at their own pace. They can be here for two to three hours, just tell me what times would suit you.
These sessions can be at anytime but are especially good for straight after school from about 4pm till 6pm (or slightly later as the time goes so fast).

They can be in school holidays too at times to suit you.

Between 4 and 8 children is ideal.

These are good for children who are having a birthday but don’t want a big party. Or for no occasion at all.

Children can have parties and workshops from the age of 4 upwards. I cater to any age above that, through to teenagers and then adults who can be left on their own if they like to have fun and make collages or scrapbooks  with the huge array of  beautiful fabrics and papers. Adults may bring wine if they like.

Please note, I have an up to date DBS certificate.
