A birthday party at Little Pulp is 2-1/2 hours of creative & messy fun. You and your guests have exclusive use of our workshop (approx. 4,000sq/ft of studio space) and everyone creates, including the adults.
The process of art we create here is called Printmaking. Everyone will make their own series of prints on paper, using the various tools & techniques that we teach and all get to run our kid-friendly printing press. It’s a very hands-on, high energy creative time where the entire family (parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles) and friends all create.
In addition to the individual print projects, everyone has the opportunity to work on the large paintings & prints on display throughout the shop.
The party starts with a few group warm-up projects (to get everyone familiar with the type of work we do), followed by the individual printmaking projects and collaborative works.
We then break to eat and after food, the kids work on a 2nd smaller project, followed by cake/cupcakes. Toward the end of the party, we all work on a poster-print that the birthday child keeps. Click Here to see Inside Our Workshop.
Pricing for our parties is as follows:
• Exclusive use of full shop and all stations/activities.
• Group warm-up project. Theme chosen by birthday boy/girl (in advance).
• We have generic paper goods (plates, cups, napkins, cutlery).
• We do not have a refrigerator.
*For the younger age groups (2-3 yrs) we usually tailor the experience to include more painting - since the printmaking involves a bit more planning. For the printmaking portion, we usually trace their hands or feet and our staff helps etch their names, creating a series of prints for each child to give to grandparents and other family & friends - it’s a lot of fun.
Parents of birthday child are responsible to supply and serve the food and drink. We suggest breakfast/brunch (bagels, muffins, croissants, fruit, coffee & juice) or Pizza.
Our staff will work on clearing the work table and setting it up for food, though parents will need to serve the food. We'll get all the kids to sit down and have them engaged in an activity while the parents hand out the pizza. If you wanted to stop by the shop to see how we do it, i can talk you through it in the space (we can set up a time for you to come visit). Due to the size of our space, when there is a large crowd of kids, if our staff is focused on preparing/serving the food, the kids start running around and someone could get hurt. We focus on keeping them sitting at the table and will certainly lend a hand - but we have noticed that most parents/guests are willing to help out (it all ties into the collaborative/workshop approach to the art we create).
