This works out at £5.00 per person, if you require the Hire Kit for a larger group there will be an additional cost of £2.00 per person this covers the additional equipment needed.
The kit does not contain any materials to print onto, you can provide your own or choose from our selection of blank fabric items from our ‘Block Craft Blanks’ page.

Additional Fabric Paint Colours can be hired for £3.50 each, you will be sent a 500ml bottle which we expect you to use 1/4 of, the paint goes a long way but we always ensure we send you plenty so you wont run out! If more is used you may be charge an extra few pounds to cover the paint cost. If your running a workshop for a large group we can help advise on the amount of paint you will require, we suggest for a workshop 4-6 colours is an ideal amount

Delivery & Collection
The Hire Kit is for a one time use, if you want to use the kit several times during the period you have it this can be arranged, just let us know so we can advise you on how much paint you will need. We expect you to have the kit for about a week in total, we arrange delivery several days in advance of your workshop date in case there is any issues with the delivery of the parcel, it is a large box and it’s best if there is someone around to sign for it. After your workshop we then allow a few days for you to pack away the kit and wash any painty equipment so would suggest picking up the kit 2-3 days after your workshop. We work with a company called UK Mail who will be the couriers who will deliver and collect your parcel, you just have to tape the box back up and the courier will provide all the shipping labels.
We suggest you call us on 01869 349020 to book a hire kit so we can check availability for you, and talk though all your requirements. We suggest booking a minimum of 4 weeks in advance to your workshop date, but if you require one more urgently please don’t hesitate to call us and we can help.
