Gift Vouchersvoucher

A Gift Voucher for a Makey Mamas creative workshop will be a unique present for a pregnant woman or mum. Each voucher is for a specific workshop but not tied to a specific date. The vouchers are transferable and are valid for a year.

This is our up to date list of workshops and the calendar has the latest dates. See what previous workshop participants have to say.

If you buy 2 vouchers you will get £3 off EACH creative workshop voucher.

Bespoke Workshops and Baby Showers

Fancy getting creative with your mama friends or your Antenatal class? Or have you got a Baby Shower or Parent and Child Group activity to organise?

I can arrange a bespoke creative workshop at a time and venue to suit groups of pregnant women, mums and dads. Choose from any of my 8 workshops or if you have an idea for a creative workshop that isn’t listed, contact me and I’ll see if I can help.

Mama Gemma and her NCT group got in touch and asked me to run a Finger Puppet Making workshop:

Finger pupprt making

“Our NCT group really wanted to have a mums’ afternoon to make things for our babies. We contacted Misty and she was more than helpful! We chose to make finger puppets and Misty came to one of our houses and led a very professional workshop and even brought us cake!! It was a wonderful afternoon to be crafty, have a little nurturing time to ourselves whilst making things for our babies. A relaxing, productive and inspiring afternoon.”
Gemma Smart, Mum of Henry

Usually 5 – 8 people per workshop. Prices vary depending on numbers, venue etc. Have a look at the individual workshop prices as a ballpark figure. There is a small gift for the organiser and cake included!

Fully Inclusive Baby Showers

If you’d prefer a fully inclusive Baby Shower with delicious food at a friendly and warm venue then Makey Mamas has teamed up with KudaCan to bring you 4 unique and crafty baby showers options.

Each Baby Shower is for up to 8 attendees, lasts for up to 3 hours (workshop lengths vary), includes a buffet, a makey workshop, social time and costs £225. More information here.

Community workDSC_0705

Makey Mamas supports 2 local charities.

Mothers for Mothers, who offer support and advice to mothers experiencing postnatal depression or distress.

BLISS Bristol, who support parents of babies born too soon.

Makey Mamas also exists as a growing online community of women interested in being creative for causes we believe in. As a community we ran a Mini Bootie Trail across Bristol and afterwards the mini booties were donated to the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the local hospital. Read more about it here.

BLISS Bristol tDSC04461asked us with making crocheted hearts for mums spending Mother’s Day 2015 in a NICU with their babies; we made enough for every mum across the South West; 285 in total. Read more about it here. For Mother’s Day 2016, we exceeded all expectations and made 1810, you can see a map of all the NICU’s that the hearts went to here.  We are doing it again for Mother’s Day 2017 and it just keeps getting bigger. Want to be part of it?

If you have a craft task that needs doing for a good cause, especially relating to birth, babies or mums then please get in touch and we might be able to help.
