KIDS

Children can come to the shop and make a bracelet for $4 - $5 each from our studio selection, but they must have adult supervision. If you plan on bringing more than 2 children, please let us know so we can make sure we have room.

We can accommodate children's parties on request, but we also have a great selection of online DIY tool free party kits and bead mixes so you can run your own party at home - click here to see more.
