Creative Craft Classes
The best way to get the guests to relax and interact with each other is to provide an activity like a craft class. I have two easy to do options that will suit any age or level of experience. And for those guests who think the last thing they are is artistic, I will surprise them with just how creative they can be.
All materials are provided for the craft class and are included in the cost per person. Why not keep the craft class a mystery and surprise the guests with it during the kitchen tea or bridal or baby shower? The class lasts about 45-60 minutes so there is plenty of time to do other things like play games and open gifts.
Something special I like to do is to ask each guest to make one of their creations a gift for the bride as a memento.
Create with Clay
Using a special type of clay, I teach the guests how to use lace, cutters and stamps to make beautiful decorative shapes. It can be used as gift tags, made into a mobile, hung up around the house or in a window. The project is such fun and so simple, absolutely anyone can do it.
Paint with Watercolours
Each guest receives a beautiful, hand-drawn template of a flower wreath which they can paint with watercolours. I have little trays of solid watercolours. They are easily used by wetting your brush and mixing the water into the paint block. A practice sheet is provided for the guests to get comfortable. This will help them to get used to working with the paint and using a brush to create certain strokes. Even if you’ve never held a paintbrush before, you will be able to complete this project. I will be there to guide the guests through each step and help them if they need.
