Pottery Painting Birthday Parties - Lollipops & Ladybirds Cwmbran

Birthday Parties & Celebrations

We love being part of your celebrations. Lollipops & Ladybirds have been hosting birthday parties for over 10 years. Whilst this page is focused on children's birthdays, we also offer exclusive use of the studio for grown up birthdays, hen parties, baby showers, corporate team-building days, brownies, cubs & clubs so don't hesitate to get in touch and we can discuss a package to suit you.

Our pottery painting & foam clay birthday workshops run for 1 hour & 30 mins allowing time for the creative activity you have chosen and another half an hour for food & cake.

We host birthday parties on a Saturday and after school during term-time on certain days.

Pottery Painting: Your host will help the children choose an item of pottery from our popular children's range. We usually have around 12-15 different items available so every child will find something for them. Typical pieces include dragons, unicorns, dogs, cats, foxes, monkeys etc. Your host will offer help and tips to the children during their painting session and parents can sit back and relax while we look after them. The length of time it takes to paint the pottery really depends on the age of the children. Our pottery painting parties are suitable for children aged 8 upwards. We often get asked to host parties for younger children and this will be considered for after school events where the studio is exclusively yours but for Saturday parties, the youngest age we can host is 8.

During the session, we will take the birthday child's handprint on one of our round dinner plates and then a fingerprint from each of their guests to create a birthday keepsake. We will personalise it afterwards with everyone's names and (for example) Amelia's 8th Birthday.

Pottery will need to be left with us for firing and items will be ready around a week later for the birthday parents to collect.

Pottery Painting Price: Up to 10 children - £150. Please add £13.50 for every additional guest over 10.

Foam Clay Workshop: Children love playing with foam clay. This awesome stuff is lumpy & bumpy in texture and can be applied onto our pottery pieces for the children to make some wonderful creations. Your host will give the children full instruction at the start and stay with them during the workshop to help get the most out of their crafting. The beauty of foam clay is that it is mess-free and dries hard in around 2 days so you are able to take the finished pieces with you at the end of the session and finish drying them at home. We have googly eyes & add on gems which the children love and what's more, after the session finishes, they can take home any unused foam clay that they have left over from their creation. With this they can make stand-alone models and pen toppers. Just keep the pot lids closed so your foam clay stays fresh until you are ready to play again.

Foam Clay Price: Up to 10 children - £150. Please add £13.50 for every additional guest over 10

Food: You can bring pre-prepared party boxes with you or order in pizza / McDonalds etc. Unlimited squash for all children and hot drinks for the party parents are included. We can chat to you fully about food arrangements when booking your date.

To check whether your date is available or to discuss our party options in more detail, please call the studio on 01633 406406 or send an email to shop@lollipopsandladybirds.co.uk and we will be happy to help. We take a £20 deposit to book your birthday party. Dates to get booked well in advance so get in touch early to avoid disappointment. Deposits are non-refundable. Full balance is required 3 days prior to your booking date.

Non-hosted birthday celebrations - If you are looking to bring a smaller gathering to celebrate your birthday or simply don't wish to choose the hosted option, please contact us about booking a table at the studio. You are very welcome to bring balloons & cake.

For parties which take place on a Saturday, we have a 'drop off' policy which means that parents who are bringing guests to a party drop off their children rather than stay in the studio. This helps us to manage our numbers and allows space for other painters. Saturday parties are not exclusive so the studio will remain open to other painters during your party. A table for up to 4 adults will be set aside for use by the party parents / grandparents.
