Makes and Bakes aims to help people of all ages and abilities access and enjoy taking part in art. Our activities are great fun and your group will make something fantastic to bring home and show off! Each workshop is designed to produce quality crafts or delicious food. We can add something special to your event no matter whether you are running a big fun day a small birthday party or something else entirely. Makes and Bakes workshops aren’t just for children we have many workshops that are designed for to be fun and relaxing for adults too.


One of the reasons Makes and Bakes was set up was to educate everyone on how they can benefit from creative activity. Getting arty can help you build imagination, support relaxation, develop muscles and fine motor skills and improve self-esteem. Below is a short video explaining why crafting is so good for us. 




We are Belfast based and travel to your venue, for areas outside Belfast we charge a little extra for travel and fuel.


We are fully insured and have lots of experience in events big and small. Each workshop whether it’s a Makes activity or a Bakes activity is fully supplied and we are experts at keeping the mess to a minimum. Don’t worry if you don’t have access to kitchen facilities, each workshop can be adapted to a range of venues.


Inclusivity is an aim that has been important to us from the beginning because we have seen how much creative activity can benefit everyone. Therefore, all our staff are given training so they are able to fully support those with disabilities and special needs in taking part in their activity.


Please let us know in advance if your group have any special dietary requirements where possible we will adjust our recipes.
