This is the basic craft party package. The minimum order for one of my craft parties is to decorate 10 coasters, that is what this listing is for. If you would like to decorate more than 10 coasters, additional coasters can be purchased to decorate in a separate listing in batches of 5, using this listing: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/107999598/craft-party-extra-another-5-glass
If you just want to purchase the basic package of 10 coasters, it is entirely up to you how many people that will cater for. So, you could have a party with 2 guests each decorating 5 coasters, or with 10 guests each decorating one coaster, or a guest decorating 5, a guest decorating 3 and a guest decorating 2. It is flexible to suit each guests budget.
The only additional costs are a flat rate for postage by courier of all finished coasters to the same address (which is added automatically to your purchase of this listing).
PLEASE NOTE: This is only to be purchased if you are within 20 miles of NG13. If you live further away, please contact me first to see if I can accomodate your requirements.
I will bring a supply of pre-cut squares in a range of colours for your guests to decorate with glass powder, glass granules, glass paints, metallic inclusions, decorative transfers, sparkly gold and silver coloured powder, glass rods and glass strings. The pictures in this listing are from my first ever craft party, held as part of a crafty hen party.
I will provide tuition on how to best decorate your squares and achieve the desired look. I will then leave the glue to set in a warm oven and tidy away my craft supplies while you continue with your party. Afterwards I will take your coasters away to fire and professionally finish them at home, and post the resulting coasters to you by courier.
I can also tailor my craft parties towards charity fund-raising parties in several ways, i.e. I can run a raffle at your party to win an item of glass jewellery or another item from my shop, or you could charge each guest an extra amount per coaster instead of and donate this to your chosen charity.
Please note, you will NOT be allowed to work with glass if you are intoxicated. It is perfectly fine to have an alcoholic drink or two during the craft party, but the un-fired glass squares have sharp edges and so I must insist that guests are not drunk. I will not allow them to work with glass if they appear to be. This party is suitable for children as long as they are responsible enough to handle sharp edges carefully and follow all safety instructions. Parents or guardians will need to sign safety information on their behalf, and if anyone in the group is under 16 years old there must be an adult present to supervise them at all times (1 adult to supervise 2 children age 10-16, 1 adult per child for any children under age 10)
Please contact me before purchasing to arrange a mutually convenient date. I work full time during the week so most parties will be on a Saturday or Sunday. The session will last between 1 and 3 hours, depending on the number of guests and how detailed they want their decorations to be. I would recommend having other entertainment available at your party in case it is closer to the 1 hour length!
Not available at all during November or December due to Christmas commitments.

Shipping & policies
If you are in the UK, postage of smaller items is by Royal Mail 2nd class or standard parcel post. For larger items I will use a courier service such as MyHermes.
Delivery overseas will be by Royal Mail airmail small packets, or for larger items a courier such as IPostParcels.com
I try to re-use packaging materials where possible. When purchasing my raw materials, I accumulate a LOT of bubble wrap and other protective wrapping, so I re-use it. I also sometimes use my old shredding, and re-use bubble-wrap envelopes. Therefore the outer packaging on your item may not always be the prettiest, but by re-using, it is the most environmentally friendly!
Payment by PayM, paypal, personal cheque or money order. I would like payment within 3 days of the purchase of an item.
Returns & exchanges
If your item is damaged in transit, I can either fix it for you, or offer you a refund on return of the item (as I can re-use fusable glass to make new beauties!) If the item was sent using one of the insured methods, please also return the original packaging and photograph any damage to the outer packaging. I wrap and pad my items very well, so I very rarely have any breakages in transit.
If an item posted by one of the un-insured methods is lost in the mail, please contact me and we'll see what we can do about a replacement.
If you don't like your item, or are unhappy with it for any reason, I can offer a refund on the item cost (but not postage costs) if it is returned as new within 14 days of receipt. But if you message me, we can try and figure something out that will make us both happy :)
I cannot accept returns of earrings for hygiene reasons. I also cannot accept returns of certain made-to-order personalised items if they cannot be sold again (I.e. if you have ordered something with the personalisation of a different colour, you can return this for a refund as I can sell it again. If you have ordered something personalised with someone's name, or special dates, I cannot re-sell these items and so cannot offer a refund on them.)
If your item is received intact and YOU break it, then I can always see if I can fix it, but there will be a small charge for this. Unfortunately I cannot issue refunds or exchanges for items damaged by you, as these are not faults with my work. Many of my items are fragile so please take good care of them!
If the amount I have charged you for postage is £1 or more than what postage and packaging has actually cost me, I will refund the difference.
FOR LAST POSTING DATES FOR CHRISTMAS: Please refer to last posting dates on Royal Mail's website (usually available each year from around September). For made to order items, 5 working days before the last suggested date, for ready-made stocked items, 1 working day before the last suggested posting date: (Please note, I often have some stock available of my more popular made to order items.
