Parties

We pride ourselves in offering fabulously personalised parties and group bookings, with attentive and helpful staff, either at the Victorian Tearooms in Kings Heath Park, at home in your own surroundings or any workplace or hired venue. Please keep reading for more details of our Children’s and Adult Parties as well as School and Community Services.

Children’s parties

Let children’s imaginations run wild and offer them something more creative and different from the norm. You’ve got the added bonus of less hassle, no cleaning up afterwards and most importantly something for the young people to keep to remember the day!!

Pottery painting parties are suitable for all ages although children of 5 or 6 upwards have more attention span than younger children. Prices vary depending on your choice of package and delivery option but start at as little as £10 per head, with a £30 non-refundable deposit payable at time of booking. (Please note party balances are payable on the day of the party in cash.)

There are minimum number booking requirements, but we have party packages designed to meet all needs.

Corporate Team Building

Celebrating a special event or milestone? Or perhaps you just need a teambuilding session? Let All Fired Arts help you have fun and get to know each other better. There’s no experience necessary and each person will have a finished item to be proud of!

Book a session at the Tearooms for a couple of hours during the day and we can have refreshments of your choice available on arrival or prepare a delicious afternoon tea. Alternatively we can come to your place of work. Whatever your requirements, we are happy to customize something suitable.

Here are some suggestions to get you thinking;

‘That’s my mug’ – Paint your own! Each person paints their own tea or coffee cup for work, that’ll put an end to anyone else borrowing your mug!

Your Choice – Each person chooses their own pottery from our wide range & then paints it their own unique style. There are plenty of books, stencils, sponges and staff suggestions to encourage and inspire even the most reluctant creative!

‘Knowing me, Knowing You’ – Let someone else inspire you… Each person paints what their partner or person on their left decides & describes! This will help you get to know one another a little better, ooh err!!

Lucky dip – All team members names are put into a hat along with their interests, hobbies, pets. Each person picks a name from the hat then they paint something suitable for the person they have picked.

Corporate Mural- Each person paints a 6” tile, which can we be grouted onto office walls to create a personalized wall mural, a great reminder of a milestone event or even a launch of a new business.

We’re happy to meet and negotiate something that suits your needs and price range, so call Annie on 07793557322 to discuss dates, prices and packages.
