We love a good childrens party at Doodle Alley. You have the option for ceramic painting, foam clay or acrylic painting parties!
Our ceramic paint washes off if anyone gets it on them, foam clay is completely mess free but we suggest telling guests not to wear their best clothes if doing acrylic painting!
AGE RESTRICTION: We recommend our parties are for children age 6 years and above. Although younger children are more than welcome at Doodle Alley we find they are better with full supervision in smaller groups.
NUMBERS: We can hold large numbers for parties, up to 20 on each floor or smaller groups of any size. We like to get everyone on the same table however this may not be possible with large numbers.
We try to ensure you have a floor to yourself if you have 15 painters or more, however smaller numbers may mean you have other painters (completely seperate) on the same floor.
ACCESSABILITY: At Doodle Alley our childrens parties tend to be downstairs (with toilet facilities also downstairs). When booking please be sure to confirm all your guests are fully able up and down stairs in case we need to arrange for the party to be upstairs due to multiple events.
PARENTS: We always require the party host parent(s) to stay for supervision throughout the duration of the party. We encourage other parents to go for a wander and pop back at the end of the party where possible.
PRICE: Our party packages are designed to give each of your guests a good sized piece to enjoy at a budget to suit you.

HOW IT WORKS: You and your group will be given a set time to arrive for your party. We will meet and greet you and show you to your table! Once pottery is selected (we leave your chosen package out for them to pick from) we give you a brief welcome and fun chat about how it all works.
Once you are all set up, we like to leave you in peace but are always on hand for encouragement and any questions!
LENGTH: Your party will be allocated a 1hr 30 slot at a time to suit all.
FOOD & DRINK: We serve hot and cold drinks at Doodle Alley however you are more than welcome to bring along your own for the party goers. We of course have the option for the party hosts to order a much needed coffee whilst you sit back and relax!
We currently don't serve food and welcome you to bring along lunch bags, buffet or just a cake. We have a list of useful suppliers in our parties section which you can find in the menu.
We ask that food be introduced toward the back end of the party as greasy fingers don't work well with ceramics!
COLLECTION: Your masterpieces will be ready inside two weeks and we will contact the party organiser to let you know when you can head back to collect. Each piece will be named following the party to ensure your masterpieces aren't mixed up!
