Hand & Footprints
Hand and footprints on ceramics are a wonderful reminder of how small your little ones once were, they make such lovely gifts for all the family. The process is simple and quick, yet unique and effective.
All the paints we use are non-toxic and washable, it can get messy!
Parent and Toddler Groups
Busy Hands can visit your Parent and Toddler Group where we will help you to get the hand and footprints on the piece of pottery and then you, the parents and carers, can decorate to your hearts content!
We will send you a pack to advertise the event. We require a rough idea of numbers from you approx 2 weeks before we visit so we can ascertain how much stock to bring on the day. (Minimum of 10 items to be painted) Depending on numbers we will require approx 2/3 tables and enough chairs for painters, drying space and a water supply. N.B. We require payment from parents/carers on the painting day as the pots will be collected from us for the group to distribute. We usually have them ready within two weeks. Contact us for more details.
Nurseries, Playgroups and Pre-schools
We issue a letter to parents a few weeks before our visit, so they can choose the items they would like us to paint with the children. On the day the staff assist us with the hand and footprints. We then take the items away to paint on the chosen message, finish the decoration and glaze and fire. We then return the ceramics to the nursery within 2 weeks, bagged and labelled ready for distribution.
We can also run group painting sessions to fit with a current theme. Tiles work well for this. They can be mounted to create a mural for a classroom or playground wall. We can also supply you with a takeaway kit for tile painting, as this gives you more flexibility to fit around the children's attendance schedules.
The possibilities are endless and we are more than happy to discuss ideas with you. Contact us for more details.
In your own home
Busy hands will also visit your home. We just ask for a minimum collective spend of £100, however many people there are attending the event. (Maximum four hours for a house party, small charge after this).
You may have a postnatal group that you are part of and would love to get everyone together for a mass painting session, you could complete your Christmas shopping in one go!
Whatever the occasion we are happy to discuss ideas with you. Contact us for more details.
