Thank you for considering Elsie Kaye Glassworks Studio for your child’s next birthday party.  We are happy to offer something different and creative that your child and their friends will love!

 

Birthday Party Information-Ages 6-12

For ages 6-12, we start with a glass bead (lampworking) demonstration, where the kids get to see first hand how the beads are made by melting glass on the torch. This is followed by a jewelry-making activity.  The birthday girl choses the project she wants to do before hand. We try to keep themes up-to-date with the latest trends. 

After the glass bead making demo, the kids move to the "bead bar" where they choose the gemstones, crystals and findings they want to work with, including a choice of handcrafted glass beads like the ones they just saw being made in the studio. Then we instruct them on how to put it all together using wire wrapping and design techniques. The birthday girl can choose her project--a memory wire wrap bracelet with a glass bead, and crystal/gemstone dangle OR a stretch bracelet with the same dangles, and a pendant or keychain/backpack charm. These are the most popular pieces right now for parties of this age group.  Since she's the guest of honor, your daughter will be able to make 3 items (bracelet, pendant, and keychain).

We like to limit parties to a maximum of 10 children to insure individual instruction and  attention.  However, we can accommodate up to 13 children if necessary, at a fee of $25 per additional child.  A 50% deposit is required to hold the date.

Birthday Party Information - Ages 12 and up

Tailored for kids ages 12 and up, this hands-on party activity will introduce the fundamentals of glass beadmaking using a gas and oxygen-fueled torch and soft glass. Topics covered include safety, tools and equipment, properties of glass, manipulation of glass with a focus on heat control, annealing and glass compatibility, and finishing beads. Participants will be introduced to the use of heat and gravity to shape molten glass and will make between 3-5 beads during the party. No experience is necessary.

After the glass beadmaking session, the kids move to the "bead bar" where they choose the gemstones, crystals and findings they want to work with, including a choice of handcrafted glass beads like the ones they just made in the studio.  Then we instruct them on how to put it all together using wire wrapping and design techniques. The birthday girl can choose her project--a stretch bracelet with a stamped disc, glass bead, and crystal/gemstone dangle OR a memory wire wrap bracelet with the same dangles, and a pendant or keychain/backpack charm. These are the most popular pieces right now for parties of this age group. Since she's the guest of honor, your daughter will be able to make 3 items (bracelet, pendant, and keychain).

Teen parties are limited to a maximum of 6 children to insure individual instruction and attention. A 50% deposit required is to hold the date. 

 

Basic Birthday Party Package - $250:

We provide all materials and supplies required for each participant to make their own project, as well as trained staff members to help each child with jewelry design, wire wrapping and finishing their pieces.  We also supply paper products (plates, cups and utensils). We have a Bose speaker system and can provide music or the birthday girl is welcome to bring her own music to play on our sound system.

Premium Birthday Party Package - $300:

This includes everything in the basic package, AND one party favor bag for each partygoer to take home. Popcorn and one juice box or water bottle are also provided for each child. You only need to bring cake/cupcakes and any snacks you may want. 




Parties last approximately 2.5 hours and are usually held on Friday evenings from 5-7:30pm or on Sunday afternoons.
However, we can often arrange other days/times if necessary.
Parents are welcome to bring pizza or have it delivered from a nearby pizza shop as well.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you for your next birthday party!
