We LOVE hosting children's parties at The Makery!
If your child is 7 - 14 years and enjoys making things, we’re sure to have an activity they will love!
Our minimum number is 8, and parties tend to last for 1 hr 30 minutes.
You’re welcome to stay on for a tea party afterwards (to save making a mess at home!) for a small additional fee. We usually host children's parties on Sundays, after school and throughout school holidays. However, Saturdays may also be possible during off-peak times.
