Children's Paint Party

Paint classes are the perfect way to have a fun party with friends! They offer everyone the chance to create something beautiful with our guided, step-by-step classes, allowing your children to create something magical. 

Our child painting workshops are up to 1.5 hours, and each event has everything you could possibly need provided for you, including paint, brushes, aprons, easels and a canvas to take home. You can choose which painting to paint for your private event, so if you'd like a bespoke piece let us know! Otherwise we can offer a selection for you to choose from. At least one adult must be present throughout the duration of the party. 

All child paint parties are held at Effy's workshop at Riverside Barns, Ickleton, Saffron walden. The workshop includes everything you need for the event, situated at a stunning site with a lake, nature and wildlife all around, plus there is a cafe next door for food and drink options and a playground (or feel free to bring your own drinks and nibbles into the workshop!) 

Available for up to 10 children, book the workshop for a 1.5 hour class for £280. 

Just email us with the date and time you require, and we'll let you know if it's available. Daytime, evenings and weekend options are available.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long are the paint classes?

Adult paint classes are 2 hours, with approximately 1 hour 30mins, leaving enough time to add any tweaks to your painting at the end, socialise and view other attendees paintings!

For children's paint classes, they are 1hour 30mins, with approx 1 hour paint time.

Is there an age limit?

Adult paint classes are for 18 years and older due to the alcohol available, the venues we use and pictures we paint. There is no upper age limit though! 

Our children's classes are aimed at those aged 6 -16 years, with parents encouraged to join their little ones!

Please note: Paint Classes are specified whether they are adults only (18+ years) or suitable for children. If you book a child onto an adult paint night without prior warning, it is up to our/the venues discretion whether the child is allowed to join the class. If you are unable to join, unfortunately we are unable to refund or transfer your tickets.

What should I wear?

Anything you like! Just remember that this is a paint class, accidents can happen and even though you're supplied with an apron, there is still a possibility of paint getting on your clothes - so just bare that in mind! 

We're not responsible for any paint that may get on your clothes.

Are the paintings on the website what we will paint?

Yes! We always try to upload the paintings we'll be doing for each class ahead of time so you can pick the best venue and date that suits your taste.

I've never painted before, does that matter?

Absolutely not! Our paint classes are tailored for absolute beginners. So even if you've never picked up a paintbrush, or haven't dabbled since you were at school, you'll still come away with a painting you're proud of!

We go through each painting layer by layer, slowly building up the details and we're there to help you each step of the way. 

What if I don't like my artwork?

We encourage everyone at our classes to lean into their own creativity. Everyone creates art differently, and we always like to see the positives to each piece our class makes.

You can always paint over the canvas and try again in your own time, or come along to another class to try some different techniques!

Do you do private parties?

Yes! We can accommodate may types of private paint classes, including Hen Parties, Baby Showers, Birthdays, Corporate and Team Building Days.

Please visit ourPrivate Events page for more information or email us to discuss your needs!
