About Makes & Bakes

At Makes and Bakes we love creative activities and our aim is to help people of all ages and abilities enjoy and benefit from them. We are a leading provider of quality art and cookery workshops. Our step-by-step activities are fun, relaxing and will teach your group how to make something they are really proud of.

We are pleased provide workshops that are fun and relaxing for both kids and grown ups. In fact, one of the best things about working at Makes and Bakes is the range of people we get to work with. From children’s birthday parties to crafty hen dos to providing kids entertainment for weddings, we have done it all. We also enjoy working with our corporate clients to facilitate fun days and team building exercises. We even provide contracts for business like restaurants cafes to provide regular workshops to keep younger guests entertained! You can learn more about our services on our Corporate Page.

Our work with councils, community groups and charities is important to us. We have run our workshops for the scouts and guides, children’s disability charities, care homes, autism groups and many more valuable organisations. We tailor our workshops to the specific needs of each group. Our workshops can also be used as part of fundraising events like school fairs.

Makes and Bakes provide regular crafty fun at our own clubs, after school groups and holiday schemes. You can learn more about them or request a group for your school or area on our Clubs Page.

About our

Company Values

Makes and Bakes was set up to educate everyone on how they can enjoy and benefit from creative activity. Getting arty can help you to relax, build imagination, develop coordination and fine motor skills and improve self-esteem.

Inclusivity is a value that has been important to us from the beginning. We have seen how much creative activity can benefit everyone especially those who often have not been able to take part in other hobbies or activities. Therefore, we train all our staff on how to support those with disabilities and special needs.

Below is a short video explaining why getting crafty is so good for us!


Makes and Bakes are fully insured and have lots of experience in events big and small. Each workshop is fully supplied and we are experts at keeping the mess to a minimum.
