What Happens

Children are given a choice of pre-cut shapes/models to make / decorate - 3D Boats, Sandcastles and or Beach Huts, and 2D Mermaids, Pirates, Fish and Sharks. (The models/shapes are made from coloured corrugated plastic - mostly recycled).

Children are free to decorate as they wish using an exciting range materials including sticky back plastic, chalk paint pens, pipe cleaners, fabrics and more!

The workshops are run on a drop-in basis by 2 artists. 

They can do a max of 5 hrs workshop with a break of around 45 mins in the middle. 

They can accommodate around 20-25 children at a time and children tend to spend from 15 mins to 40 mins making but if it's really busy they may limit making time to keep up with demand!

They will bring all equipment, materials, making tables, signboard and materials. The workshops are aimed at 4-11yr olds and they ask parents to stay or be within sight while their child is making.

They need: A marquee or gazebo - preferably with sides and 6 chairs, and they require one hour to set up prior to the event.

About the Artists

The Workshops are run by artists (Andy and Lucy) experienced in providing memorable, high quality creative experiences.

Andy's skills are in the areas of inventiveness, construction, model and prop making and of course a sense of silliness which both children and adults love! He began running workshops in response to children's curiosity about his comic theatre props and how he made them.

Lucy has an extensive knowledge of materials, techniques and processes from printmaking to film making. She has over 10 years experience of facilitating creative activities for both children and adults. She has spent much time working with community Arts charities and has experience of working with children and adults with special needs.

Both workshop leaders are CRB checked, have public liability insurance and can provide a risk assessment for the workshop.

Classique has been working with International Artistes from around the world for over 20 years, whether they are ‘A’ list celebrities, Chart Toppers, performers from TV talent shows or Celebrity DJs. Along with our in-house production team, we pull together all the details – dealing with flights, transfers, accommodation and riders for all the major artists and their teams.

As the UK’s No 1 booker of celebrity artists we deal with everything for you and work constantly with management companies throughout the world, where we have built up great relationships and have the latest information about who is available and who would work best for your event.

Please contact us for any ideas for your event and we will work with you, always understanding time constraints and budgets.

Unfortunately we are unable to request autographs or personal Meet & Greets (unless part of a Classique event and pre-arranged) and we suggest contacting the artist's own websites or fan sites. Apologies, we are also not able to ask for Video calls / personal birthday requests / free / gratis / charity / reduced fee performances from any of the artists – again please contact your chosen artist through their own websites.
We are however very happy to pass on your thanks to any artist that has appeared at your event arranged and organised by Classique.
