Mini-Maker Parties

Mini Maker craft birthday parties at Ash & Co. Workshops

Looking for something different and exciting for your child’s next birthday party? Then check out our Mini-Maker Parties and come and make something awesome! 

Suitable for ages 5+, we can host a totally unique creative party where kids build their very own wooden characters or cars in our workshop. 

You will enjoy your own dedicated workbench within one of our mini-maker sessions. We will decorate your bench and provide special party themed accessories for each mini-maker. Plus we'll include a free gift for the birthday girl or boy - one of our lovely handmade wooden mallets worth £20.

You have the choice of start times from 10am or 1pm on most Saturdays (your party needs to be on a day that we are already running mini-maker workshops). Please click here to view the calendar of available Mini-Maker sessions ‚Äļ¬†If you are booking for a group of 10 or more we can also offer you an exclusive session at 3pm. Please email Amanda at to check availability for your chosen date (please include a rough idea of how many guests).

We are also pleased to be able to offer FREE printable invitations for your party too! See below for details. 

To ensure safety and make sure the children get the most from their time in the workshop, adult helpers are required and expected to get stuck in!

The ratios needed for a successful workshop are:
Ages 5 - 7 = at least one adult to two children 
Ages 8+ = at least one adult to three children 

Please note that we no longer have the 'party room' and do not offer catering any more. Food - including cake - is not allowed to be consumed in the workshop as wood dust, filings and other small parts may cause a health & safety risk and is not allowed under our insurance terms.

How do I book? 
Please check what dates our Mini-Maker sessions are running (click here for calendar) then email Amanda at with your chosen date and a rough idea of your number of guests to check availability. Please also include whether you would like to make Characters or Scrappy Cars. We will then reserve the right number of bench spaces for you and you will get confirmation email from our booking system. 

How do I pay? 
If your party is less than a month away we will email you an invoice for the full amount. This can be paid either through PayPal or BACS. If your party is further away then we will send an invoice for a £50 deposit to secure your booking and another invoice for the balance two weeks before your event so that you have time to arrange your final numbers. 

Can I have a party on a weekday? 
If we do not have any other workshops booked in then we will be happy to try to accommodate your request. Please email Amanda at to check availability. There is a minimum of 6 children / £125 for any party booking. 

Will we have exclusive use of the workshop? 
Only if you book for the full amount of 20 children. Otherwise there may be other members of the public at your session but they will be on a separate workbench.

Can you arrange any food? 
Sadly we no longer have our party room and cannot provide food at this time. 

Can I bring my own food? 
Sorry, we do not allow food in the workshop as wood dust could contaminate food and cause a health & safety risk.

How many adult helpers will I need?
Children need to be accompanied by a grown-up at all times in the workshop. They will have access to tools, un-sanded wood, glues etc and must be properly supervised.

  • Ages 5 - 7¬†=¬†at least¬†one¬†adult¬†to two children¬†
  • Ages 8+¬†=¬†at least one¬†adult¬†to¬†three children¬†

Can we race the cars like you used to in Scrappy Races?
