private party ideas

So, you and the "girls" want to hang out. You want to make something. You like music. You like having fun. The Groovy Garage is your place! We can host groups of up to 10 people comfortably, maybe squeeze in a few more. Below is a list of choices for you and your girls to "create" in our space. If you have 6 or less guests, we can do it in the shop.

This page is under construction, but will be ready soon!!!

My Intent "What's Your Word?"

 

 

 

 

Round & Round - Make a Lazy Susan

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Pot of Luck" - Decoupage a pot or vase or wine bottle (choose one for the event for all)

"Paint Your Purse" - Handpaint your own purse with transfers too.

"Garden Post" - Decorate a Rustic Fence Post

"Sticky Box" - Decoupage a box, jewelry box (provided by guest), large vessel, ideas welcome

"Embellish a ____?" - group chooses vessel, we will use air dry clay to decorate it, but you will need a 2nd class to come back to paint it. Examples of vessels: small box, wine bottle, vase, frame, mirror, ideas...

My Intent was created by a team of inventive thinkers who came up with a social way to empower people from within. We have the tools and supplies to let you and your small group of friends make a keepsake of "your word". What word embodies your spirit? What word speaks to you? What word makes you feel powerful, calm, loved? There are question cards to inspire each of you to find your word or you can come up with one on your own. Each guest will use the patented tool letter stamps to pound their word, letter by letter into a round disc. The disc comes with a string-like necklace, but can be replaced with your own chain. You could also wear your creation on a bracelet or keychain or be creative! Because we only have one tool at this time, we recommend a small group of 6 or less, or extremely patient friends! You are welcome to play a board game, BYOB, complete coloring pages while you wait, chat, cheer on each other, brainstorm words, whatever you'd like. You have the Groovy Garage or Shop Studio (if a group under 6) for 2 hours. We can also add a "craft project" if you'd like to make prior arrangements for an additional fee for supplies. My Intent reservations for groups of 6 or more can be made by phone to the shop during daylight hours at 717-527-7703. Reservations will be charged as a group to one person and must be paid in full 48 hours prior to party time. If available, you may hold your party Friday nite or any other time slot day or night that is not already taken for our public workshops. RATES: $20 per person. It is possible to secure my intent chains, wristlets, keychains, and a variety of colors of string as long as an order is made at least 2 weeks prior to your party to allow for shipping. Please discuss options when registering. We look forward to hearing from you and planning your inspirational party!

I'm not lazy, you say? Now you have the chance to prove it! We provide the lazy susan, 2 circular discs of 3/4" pine, the internal lazy susan hardware and paint, stain and transfers. We have all of the tools, too. You will seal your susan with a waterproofing coating. It is suggested you dress appropriately for painting or buy one of our aprons, bring a hairdryer (helps speed up the drying), bring ideas of stain vs. paint and color. We will have basic colors of stain and paint, so if you want something unusual like chartreuse (my favorite), either pick up a paint sample can at our local Hornung's Ace Hardware (up the street), Home Depot, etc. or ask me at the shop if I have your color. I might! I do have colorful transfers for decorating the lazy susans in a variety of designs as well. Stop into the shop to see some of our samples for inspiration. So, to make Private Party Reservations, please call the shop at 717-527-7703 during daylight hours. Reservations will be charged as a group to one person and must be paid in full 48 hours prior to party time. If available, you may hold your party Friday nite or any other time slot day or night that is not already taken for our public workshops. RATES: $35 for an 18" or $45 for a 24" lazy susan. Groups of 4 may be held in the shop studio during non-shop hours. 4+ groups will be held in the Groovy Garage behind the shop on Raspberry Lane. Be aware we do not have A/C in the Groovy Garage. The daily weather will affect the temps but we do have fans and it can even be cool at night! We are looking forward to hosting your party and helping you make your own personal lazy susan!
