Fairy Parties feature partially preassembled fairies that young children can put together in about 6 steps with some assistance. All materials are provided and they have a choice of hair and bodice color. Assembly time is about 45 minutes.
For small groups of children ages 5+, adults need to be in attendance only. For larger groups, some adults will need to actively participate, depending on group size (it's fun!) 4 1/2 year olds need active one-on-one adult participation.
Fairy parties are an enchanting way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion, and they're not just limited to children. I also give grownup fairy parties!
Fairy Workshops: Add a twinkle to your day and come make a fairy. The Fairy Workshops feature partially pre-assembled fairies of my own special design. The hard part is done - you have all the fun!
All materials are provided including hand-painted head, wings and plenty of sparkles. There are lots of colors to choose from and time to create accessories for the fashionable fairy.
1 1/2 - 2 hr workshop suitable for ages 5 and up (5 yr olds may require adult participation.)
MANCHESTER PUBLIC LIBRARY
"There was magic in the air when Elizabeth brought her fairy workshop to the Manchester Public Library on a Saturday morning. Families with children ages 6-11 were delighted they could create a fairy every bit as exciting and wonderful as their dreams and the artist's examples." Sara Collins Head of Youth Services Manchester Public Library
MERRIMAC LIBRARY FAIRY WORKSHOP
"Elizabeth's fairy workshop was a big hit at our library. So much fun and everyone took home their own beautiful unique fairy that they had made. Parents seemed to enjoy it as much as the kids." - Cathy Fowler, Children's Librarian, Merrimac Public Library

KELLEY SCHOOL FAIRY CLASS
Fairy Classes: Fairy classes offer children and adults the opportunity to make a fairy from start to finish. For children, we do this in stages and add in other fairy related activities. It's a chance to learn new skills - like cutting out a pattern or painting a face. It's "fairy" fun and we generally sprinkle a bit of glitter and fairy dust around...
Cut & Assemble Fairy Kits:My fairies have been developed primarily for my workshops and parties. However, occasionally I do make up a small number of kits which are available upon request.
Each kits contain a hand-painted head, pre-assembled bodice and shoes, wings, hair, instructions and all the necessary materials to dress a fashionable fairy. You provide scissors and glue.
There's a lot to do to prepare for a fairy workshop. There are materials to gather and parts to assemble.
Out of a jumble of materials....
fairies start to emerge.
They pop up....
"Give Wings to Your Imagination!"is the motto I use for my Cut & Assemble Fairy Kits, classes and workshops. For me, it evokes the uplifting flight that engaging in creative activities can provide.
When I was young, my dear friend Bambi (left) and I would make wings out of large pieces of paper. We would decorate them with our crayons and attach them with safety pins. Then we would run around and "fly" in our imaginations. We loved to make things! We took art classes, learned to sew, and made things in wood and other materials. Those projects helped me develop the skills that have become the foundation of my own artistic career today. Those paper wings were the beginning of a creative flight that still has me flying!
