We can supply catering for parties of 8 or more crafters……Our snack includes – Capri Sun, fruit (strawberries, & grapes), packet of crisps, a snack sized sausage roll each, party sausages, a fairy cake and crispie cake. Plus we make up little white paper party bags with three sweets inside ie a Freddo, Haribos, lolly. A  Vegetarian option is available on request. 
This is priced £3.50 per head and a party with food lasts 2hrs.

Bring your own party snacks……. If you have fewer than 8 crafters coming to your party or just prefer to supply your own catering, then you can bring your own on board. Please note we can only allow food to be served in lunch bags/boxes and consumed where the party goers are seated as we do not have space to set up a buffet table. The only exception being if the whole boat is booked which allows it to be offered on a buffet basis.                                                            If bringing your own food then we charge a £4.50 studio fee per crafter plus the cost of the chosen ceramic.

Size of party

Up to 16 crafters ………..We can accommodate up to 16 crafters  with no additional cost for your party! Please note that a maximum of 2 adults may attend with the party as the boat will still be open to our drop-in customers during your party. Adults may also be required to stand and assist for the duration of the party as we don’t guarantee seats for attending adults. Please ensure that no more than 16 guests are invited so that there isn’t a chance that more than 16 crafters attend.

More than 16 crafters………If you wish to have a party with more than 16 crafters then you need to book the whole boat. You can invite up to 30 crafters and have the party of a lifetime!!

If booking the whole boat, an exclusivity fee applies.

Exclusivity Fee:-

17-20 crafters £50

21-24 crafters £35

25-30 crafters £20 (no more than 2 adults to attend with party)

If you have more than 10 crafters attending your party please choose a selection of ceramics at least 2 weeks prior to party, as we need adequate time to order stock.

Treasure Chest Party Special @ £11 per crafter incls snack….suitable for ages 5-6yrs

We offer the Treasure chest party @£11 per crafter which includes us supplying catering.

Our Treasure chest is our most popular item for children aged 5-6 yrs and comes filled with chocolate coins. It can be painted, foam clayed, glittered & jewelled into a lovely jewellery box or Treasure chest. It is the perfect item for younger children as it is made of wood which eliminates the possibility of breakages. Its also just a lot of fun as they get to use everything to decorate it!

Booking & Deposits

A deposit of £30 – £60 is required at the point of booking to secure your party.

If you have to cancel your booking you will receive a full refund of your deposit if you cancel up to 4 weeks in advance of your party date. No refunds will be given to cancellations less than 4 weeks but we will do our very best to accommodate another date for you.

Full refunds are given if we, for any reason, have to cancel your booking. We will endeavor to accommodate an alternative date for your party. A discount will be given on your future booking for the inconvenience of changing your original booking.

 

* Please understand that we now stipulate that children turning 5yrs are children attending school. Due to our small venue we find children still attending nursery find it challenging to sit for the party time and as we are a small venue we have no room available for them to run around.
