Birthday Parties

We are a popular venue for parties of all types.

Children’s Birthday Parties

   Pottery  |   Mosaics  |  Decopatch

We can ensure that you have a creative and rewarding experience.

The maximum number of children we can accommodate is 18 although the average is 10 – 12.

Depending on the age of the birthday child we have a couple of options.

 

Option 1

With this party package children do their chosen craft activity for 1hr 30mins. Great if you are going on elsewhere for a party tea. Cost £12.50 per head

 

 

Option 2

This party package is similar to option 1 but includes the use of the big downstairs table to lay out your party food ready for when the children have finished their activity. We provide paper plates, napkins, table covering, cups and bowls for nibbles. Let’s not forget the parents, tea and coffee also included.

As a slight variation on a theme younger children aged 5-7 can choose to paint two smaller items and have a break in the middle for food etc.

 

Cost £12.50 per head plus £25.00 for the use of the downstairs room.

For either option a small deposit of £25 is required to secure the booking.

For younger children we recommend pottery painting. Excellent value as we offer two items of pottery and most parents opt to hire the party food table and serve lunch/tea between the painting projects. Still only £12.50 per head but pottery valued £16+. The paints wash out of clothes!

Pottery painting parties aged 7+, children choose one item of pottery. Painting activity lasts 1 1/2 hours.

Potter's Wheel

Inspired by the Great Pottery Throwdown on TV, we offer Wheel tasters and hand build clay. Plus 1:1 Potter’s Wheel and follow up to “turn” and finish the pottery items.

Turning, refining the base of your pot the next day

After drying and firing it’s on with the decorating and a final firing to bring out the real beauty of your work.

Finished items after glaze and firing.

Clay Play allows children and adults to use their imagination with clay to make their own unique items.

Hands, feet or even paws are pressed into soft clay resulting in a tactile impression where you can feel all those creases!

We paint in the colour of your choice and varnish.
The clay takes a while to dry thoroughly and so allow 3 weeks or so for these to be finished

Single print £ 20.00

Large plaque £50.00

Pairs (two hands, 2 feet) £30.00

Pet paw prints. Bring your pet to Daisyroots studio and we can make a treasured keepsake.

3D Baby Castings

3D Baby Castings are plaster replica of your child’s hands and feet showing skin texture, creases and nails.

The casting material is the same as used by dentists. Therefore, non-allergic and safe for your baby. Smells a bit minty!

The plaster castings are fragile and we therefore frame and have an engraved plaque to complete.
