birthday parties

fashion birthday parties and sewing birthday partiesYou won’t find stickers and kits here…just open-ended creative fun.  Have your child’s birthday party with us (or order a Wishcraft Workshop party-to-go!) and kids leave with handmade goodies, creative pride and memories (like blowing out our giant stuffed candle!) Choose a project from some of our greatest hits or let us design a project for your child and their interests. Make a wish.

Art + craft activities are individualized for each party (we like to offer options to match your child’s interests). We utilize new materials made of post-consumer recycled content wherever possible, making the celebration as much a gift for the planet as it is for your guests. (Read more about our recently added “fashion” parties here).

All birthday parties include:

  • our first floor privately-reserved for you
  • a customized PDF invitation (custom-designed for us by Paper Dahlia)
  • a guided art, craft or sewing activity and games including all materials
  • paper-products and utensils for food-service
  • plenty of our entertaining workshop team to handle the flow of the event, set-up and clean-up.

Our workshop is located in bustling Northcenter and we invite guests’ parents to enjoy the many local shopping and restaurant options during the party.
