Creativity meets celebration!
Are you tired of the same old birthday parties, bridal showers, or team building events? A private arts or crafts party is the perfect solution for a unique and memorable experience. With a wide variety of DIY projects and activities to choose from, you can personalize the party to match your style and preferences. Imagine spending quality time with your girlfriends, creating beautiful crafts, and enjoying delicious snacks and drinks in a fun and intimate setting. Whether you're celebrating a milestone birthday or bonding with your team, a private craft party is the perfect way to create lasting memories. So, grab your squad and let's get crafting!
Craft parties work best for kids aged 8+, teens and adults. We feel that the attention span for younger kids is too short to make a craft party the sole focus, but we will consider it on a case-by-case basis. Especially if you will have other activities at your party. Multi-age family parties can work, but we will want to have a plan for children too young to do the main craft. With notice, we can bring some legos, coloring supplies and/or play dough for your littles.
We can come to your business, rented community room or event space, parks or a brewery/restaurant. We can help locate suitable venues depending on ages, type of crafts, and your food/beverage needs. At this time, we do not host parties in private homes due to liability issues and our owner/lead instructor's severe pet and fragrance allergies. We can travel within Kitsap County and Gig Harbor areas, and the greater Puget Sound region for larger events. Not all locations can support all craft types due to the venues amenities and/or restrictions.
Pricing and Minimums
Most craft events will run in the $25 - $60 per person range plus any costs for space rentals and additional staffing for larger events. We require a minimum spend of $300 for a 2 hour event. Some projects may require more than 2 hours.
Food and Other Activities
We do not provide food or drink, games, decorations, face painting, etc. Though we may be able to offer suggestions for other vendors, so let us know what you're looking for. We can provide concierge service in finding and booking outside vendors on your behalf at an hourly rate and only as an add-on to a craft party package.
With some venues, you can apply for a banquet permit for $10 that would allow you to serve alcohol. At some venues, alcohol is prohibited from all events (some state and county parks). Most restaurants and breweries will expect drinks to be purchased from them. Their liquor licenses typically don't allow for outside food/drinks. Dream Maker always tries to stay on the right side of the law and the rules for any venues we utilize.
