Grown Up parties and crafty get togethers:

Many of our day and evening courses can be tailored to create an enjoyable creative gathering, we're also happy to do special hen or wedding preparation parties. We can fit up to 12 people in here at The Making House or we can come to your venue and possibly cater for a few more.

We can do day or evening gatherings, although we do fit parties in around our other workshops and activities, so please allow some flexibility on your dates.

You're welcome to bring along food and drink and make an evening or afternoon of it.

Prices below are for delivery at The Making House. (Please note prices may vary if for example you want to use higher quality materials to make your party special). We are happy to come to you, but if travelling to a venue we will need to charge for transport costs, (this includes time spent travelling as well as mileage etc)

Full Day Group Bookings

- Wire Poppies, 10 - 4. In the morning you'll learn to make the poppies and create a bunch of small wire poppies including poppy seed heads. In the afternoon you'll make a large poppy or seed head suitable for the garden, but looks just as good indoors! This is a lovely beginners wire workshop and with the skills you've learnt you'll be able to make more at home. This full day workshop costs £220 for up to 8 people, thereafter £10 per person up to a maximum of 12 people.

- Wire Alliums, 10 - 5. You will create a large wire allium for your garden or as a striking indoor decoration. (Combine different wires or create your allium using recycled cans) This is a fantastic wire workshop and with the skills you've learnt you'll be able to make more at home. It is however quite repetitive and can be tough on the hands, so please bare this in mind if you have arthritis, carpal tunnel or similar condition. This full day workshop costs £220 for up to 6 people, thereafter £15 per person up to a maximum of 10 people. (The allium uses a lot of materials and involves quite a lot of preparatory work for me, to make it an achievable project in a day, the price reflects this)

- Full day felt projects: We run a variety of full day needle felt and wet felt workshops, for example (avocets, magpies, woodpecker, hares, reindeers, polar bears, wet felt pictures and bowls), most can be run as a group booking. Prices will vary depending on the complexity of the project but as a guide. a full day workshop would be £220 for up to 8 people, £15 per head thereafter up to a maximum of 12 people.
