Christmas 2017 Opening hours


New at Kippy's! Neon Canvas Painting under UV lights

Tuesday 8th August 10-30-12.00 and 2.30-4.00

Glow in the dark!

Have a painting experience like no other! We've 'blacked out' our party room to create a semi-dark painting room with UV lights making the paints and decorations glow in the dark! Use our neon paints to create a 16" x 20" canvas masterpiece. Glow sticks will be provided for everyone, plus glow in the dark face paint and we have white t-shirts to wear during the workshop so we can easily see you! We have many designs to choose from, with the canvases able to be taken home on the day or left with us over night to finish drying. Suitable for all aged 7 and over - including adults! Painters will need to be left as there is not room in the dark for non-painters but are welcome to wait downstairs on our sofas or why not paint some pottery! Squash/water will be supplied. £15 per painter. 
FACEBOOK PAGE IS NOT ACCEPTED AS A METHOD OF BOOKING. Payment is required at the time of booking. Please phone the shop or pop in to book - 01233 631388, or with any questions/ for more info. Limited spaces available.
