A colourful range of children's art, craft, sewing and cooking projects

what's involved in a cookery party?


​At a Magpie Makes party we encourage the party guests to have lots of fun getting busy in our kitchen studio. The lovely part about a cooking party is that you have something delicious (and made by you) to eat and share with your friends. You'll be able to taste lots of flavours and build up your confidence with food.​ All our cookery parties are run by two of the Magpie team. This will depend on activity chosen and the specialism of the team leader. We will supply all the ingredients and equipment needed and make sure that everyone is wearing an apron to protect their clothes.




where will the party be?


All Magpie cookery parties are held at our kitchen studio – apologies, we can't run these at your home. We can accommodate up to 12 kids in our large studio, run a fun party activity and you don't have any of the clearing up. We suggest that the food they prepare is the party food too, but please do feel free to supplement with extras if you'd like and bring your own birthday cake.




how much does it cost?


The cost varies by activity and also number of children so we prefer to quote on an individual party basis rather than listing our prices on our website. Please get in touch for this information. Each party booking includes complimentary postcard-style invitations and a badge for the birthday girl or boy.




how do I book?


On booking please inform us of any allergies or intolerances of the attending children. We are happy to accommodate any gluten free guests but apologies we can't guarantee our kitchen is coeliac approved. We can also accommodate dairy free and vegetarian/vegan guests with no problem. We aim for our kitchen studio to be a nut-free space. If we have a child attending who has severe allergies it is important you talk to us about this at the time of booking. As the booking is in your name, it is your responsibility to alert us to severe allergies and we take this matter very seriously. Due to calendar complexities we are not currently able to take online party reservations. Please email us or call Suzie 07740 125104 and we will be happy to discuss your requirements and find an available date. When we have agreed a date and activity you can secure your booking by paying £100 deposit.




party bags – a little extra...


Packed in a pretty paper bag we offer a choice of either hearts or stars as simple sewing kits. They are a perfect little take home gift at the end of a Magpie party. Each kit contains everything you need and clear instructions to sew a decorative hanging decoration. Recommended for ages 6+

"In our family reaching double figures is a special event so we were looking for a different party this year. We came to the Magpie Makes studio and the children were able to make their own afternoon tea. Sandwiches, decorated biscuits and cakes all served on individual cake stands - it was so pretty and delicious too! Thank you so much it was a truly memorable afternoon"
