Art & Craft Private Parties

We offer fun arty activities here at Barnoon Workshop.  Great fun  for  groups of friends, Hen parties, Team Building events, Work outings, and Birthday Parties.  In some cases we can even bring our party to your venue, home, school or office!  Please ask.

Choose one of our subjects,  or ask about a subject of your choice.  All are parties are led by experienced art professionals and include all the materials you need - so you can enjoy your activity.   Our space can accommodate around 10-15 participants indoors (depending on the subject).  Most parties are for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.  We have basic hot drink making facilities but no kitchen.  You are welcome to bring along your own food and drink - or we can organize outside catering, please ask for details.

Please get in touch to discuss your specific arrangements,  or quotes for very small groups, or coming to your venue,
