Craft Parties

I run craft parties for 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 8 plus me and one or two adults. 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 a maximum of two adults. 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.

Children’s Craft Parties

2 hours. £20 per child.

Ages 5/6 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 45 minutes to an hour of making they’re ready for food which is usually pizzas delivered from the lovely local pizzeria that you will have pre-ordered. You pay for that yourself, or you can bring small individual packed lunches. Then comes the birthday cake which you bring and they usually eat that there and then. Due to Covid, instead of a big cake with candles you can bring a cupcake each. The birthday child can have a candle in theirs to blow out, so as not to blow all over a big cake.

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 one or two parents to stay and help (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).

You can bring a blue tooth speaker if you like with your child’s favourite music. It’s lovely when they all sing along. There are balloons in the Green Shed and it’s quite decorative so you won’t need to decorate it. The windows will be open and it’ll be nice and airy. It’s cool in Summer and doesn’t get stuffy. 

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 and have had my first COVID vaccine jab and I expect my second jab sometime in April

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.

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