Pricing
  • Flowers (corsages, felt or stem), knickers or garters workshops are £21 per person.
  • Monster Toys or Felt Bunting workshops are £24 per person.
  • Nipple tassels or customising is £26 per person
  • Vintage fascinator making is £31 per person
  • In addition to the per person price above there is a £50 booking fee* per party (see explanation below*) 
  • Minimum of 7 people per booking - cost is still for 7 if less people attend 
  • Teas and cakes are an optional extra you can book at £3.50 a head
  • Prosecco optional extra is £5-7 a head** 
  • We can usually do any Friday, Saturday or Sunday (day or evening) all year round

*The booking fee covers administration, time taken for ordering and packing materials, transport and preparation costs and is applicable regardless of venue. To explain: our own venue has a rent allocation for each booking as we cannot book it for anything else that day, your own venue involves packing time and taxi costs both ways for us and another venue we hire has these plus the cost of the venue which we will not charge extra for. We find it fairer to add the admin fee per party than divide it up as a supplement per person, as that would make larger parties a lot more expensive, when in fact the costs mentioned above are pretty much the same regardless of party size.
**Prosecco price depends whether venue is licensed or we can bring our own for you. Alcohol can be drunk towards the end of hand sewing parties and at the end of machine sewing parties - health & safety first! : )
