Our craft events can either be booked separately or in conjunction with our vintage afternoon teas.
If you choose the crafternoon tea option, after learning a new skill you will be able to sit with your friends and enjoy a delicious home prepared tea. At present we are offering these activities – Cupcake decorating, cookie icing, various flower arranging demos and candle making.
Cake decorating – this can either take the form of Karen demonstrating how to decorate your cupcakes to look like roses, hydrangeas, hibiscus, chrysanthemums and sunflowers – or it can be interactive whereby you can have a go yourself and take the results home. Biscuit and cookie decorating can also take the form of a demonstration or be interactive. Cost for these courses are £40.00 for 10 people or interactive £2.00 per person extra.
Floristry – We are very fortunate to have acquired the services of Sue, an experienced florist who has trained at the internationally renowned Judith Blackstock Floristry School. She is experienced in wedding and commercial floristry and has been asked to exhibit at the Chichester Flower Festival in May 2014. Demos will be in the region of £40.00 plus materials or if interactive they would be priced according to the cost of the additional flowers used for your own projects. Please ring to enquire which courses will run as they are tailored to the season.
Candle in a cup and saucer – These make super gifts and you will leave with your own candle in a cup crafted by yourself. We will bring everything you need to make the candle, including a selection of vintage cups and saucers for you to choose from. The cost will be £80.00 for 10 people, plus the cost of the cup and saucer per person, prices for these will be from £3.00 each. Please feel free to bring your own cup and saucer if you wish.
If only choosing the interactive craft demonstrations, prices from £20.00 per head, please use our contact form for a quote.
We are hoping to add to these crafts and if you have a particular fancy for a Crafternoon such as learning to knit or crochet, please let us know and we will endeavour to provide a professional teacher for each new craft.
