Captured on the Rye is pleased to welcome you to one of our Screen-Printing and Spin Painting parties at the shop. Open to all ages 4+ for parties of up to 15 participants. Come and work with Lou to design and print your own T-Shirt and/or make some fantastic spin-painted art creations.

Perfect for birthday parties – especially if you choose to host the party at our shop so you don’t have to do any tidying up!

You are welcome to bring your own party food, snacks, cake or you can order in pizza.

We can organise this for you if preferred.

Bring an idea for a design with you, draw your own, or choose from our selection of printed material and pre-cut stencils.

Lou will work with each of the participants to develop their ideas and then print them onto a T-shirt using eco-friendly water-based inks which are colourfast and machine-washable.

Results  regularly exceed expectations, with participants able to proudly wear their own creations straight away if desired.

Sessions must be booked in advance with a deposit paid at time of booking. After school Wednesday – Friday, Saturdays and Sundays are available as well as daytimes during holidays or for pre-school ages.

We are happy to accommodate sessions for adults in the evenings which can be more ambitious, eg. two colour etc. Bring a bottle if you wish!

If you would like to host a party at your home, or at a venue of your choice to accommodate a larger group, we can arrange that too.
