No painting skills are needed, just a fun attitude.  This workshop is suitable for adults or participants aged 14 and above.

Please come “dressed for mess” and wear clothes which you don’t mind getting dirty as paint might stain your clothes in the process. Aprons and gloves are provided.

To allow adequate drying and setting, the collection of your amazing artwork will be 2 days after the workshop.

Mosaic Workshop, £29 per person, minimum 8 – maximum 16 guests.

During this 2 hour workshop you will create your own mosaic from a selection of shapes using broken china, mosaic tiles and other reclaimed materials. Included in the course is everything you need for the project including a wooden base, or similar sized shape, pre-cut china, glue and other reclaimed materials. This is ideal for beginners and those who want to have a bit of fun no matter how creative you are ( or not! ). An excellent introduction to mosaicing. You are welcome to bring along your own china that may be an heirloom or have memories from years past.

Everything that you need is included. Pre-cut china and other recycled items, a choice of templates, tools, glue and powdered grout to finish your creation at home as the glue requires at least 24 hours to dry.

Knicker Decorating, £29 per person, minimum 10 – maximum 24 guests.

We provided a selection of plain pants with something to suit everyone, including lots of laughs and cheeky fun along the way. We can show you various techniques to pimp your pants whether you are experienced with crafty things or not, there will be something new to learn and do in this session. Try appliqué, making ribbons bows, attach lace, add some sparkle with sequins, bows or buttons. No two pairs ever look the same… let your imagination run wild, or we can help you with some creative ideas. We will be on hand throughout to guide you through, or help provide inspiration. We allow 2 hours for this workshop. We hold stock of pants from sizes 8 to 16, if you require sizes outside of this range we ask that you bring them along with you on the day.

Canvas Painting £35 per person, minimum 10 – maximum 18 guests.

On the evening of your night out, we’ll all paint the same design but rest assured everyone will have very individual results.   Plan on painting for 2 to 3 hours.

We provide all the supplies needed to complete a canvas and after a few hours of fun and laughter each guest will leave with a work of art they have created themselves. This activity is designed to get people to have fun painting and our easy to follow system removes the guesswork and challenge from the drawing and painting equation. If you can steadily hold a pencil then your success will be nearly guaranteed. Canvases will be ready to collect the next day (they need to dry overnight). Approximately 3 hours.
