Children’s mosaic parties
Children’s Mosaic Parties in and around London
Kids love mosaicing. I have two daughters and I just love their creativity; children have a wonderful and unique approach to art which I believe should be encouraged and nurtured.
My kids always have something on the go .. and when their friends come to visit they are always interested and keen to get involved.
As two of my very favourite things are children and mosaicing; I had a light bulb moment … and Prickly Poppy Mosaic Parties was born!
Children create something they can treasure for ever; parents are equally happy when their child has something other that sweets to remember the occasion.
Prickly Poppy children’s mosaic parties are very popular so if you would like to host one then please book early.
How does it work?
I come to your house bringing all the materials required; a base to mosaic on, a selection of gorgeous tiles, glue, tablecloth etc etc. All you will need is a table large enough for everyone to sit round bearing in mind you can sit quite snug when you mosaic.
I will talk the children through the process, guiding them and giving them pointers as they go. It is such a joy working with children and watching their natural ability to put colours together that I wouldn’t have imagined … and making it work!
When finished I carefully pack up the mosaics and all the equipment and pack it away. For me this is when the work really begins. I take them all home and ensure that everything is glued firmly in place, I then leave them overnight to dry. The following day I grout, clean and polish the artwork, paint the sides and add a hook so they are ready to hang. I will delivery them (or have them delivered) as soon as possible after the party, individually bagged to be handed out to the children.
What do they make?
I bring either wooden shapes, tiles or pieces of MDF for the children to create their masterpieces on; I have found hearts to be very popular. The shapes are roughly 15cm in diameter, this is a good size as it large enough for a unique design but not too big as to be overwhelming.
If you have having a themed party or there is something that the children are particularly fond of, then I can bring shapes to fit the theme or draw images onto the MDF.
How many children can I invite?
Parties are for between 6 and 12 children.
Feel free to contact me to discuss..
What does it cost?
The price is £190 for 6 children and £15 for each extra child up to a maximum of 12 children.
