birthday parties

smiling fun at a Wishcraft Workshop birthday partyYou 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. Make something. ppa smallred tricyle finalistbasharoo party all-star awards

Art+craft activities are individualized for each party (lots of examples of what we do can be seen on our Facebook page.)  We also offer projects that utilize recycled and natural materials (by request), making the celebration as much a gift for the planet as it is for your guests.

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.

Everything other than the food* of your choice is included and detailed for you before the booking– no add-ons and no hidden-costs. Our parties are drop-off (we recommend ages 5-12.) Our workshop is located in bustling Northcenter and we invite guests’ parents to enjoy the many local shopping and restaurant options during the party.

If we can’t find a date for you or you’d like to host elsewhere, a Wishcraft Workshop party-to-go is another option: it includes a complete art+craft activity, all materials, easy-to-follow instructions and an example handmade by us for your child. Prices for a party-to-go vary by project and group size. Just ask!
