Rock My Shoes

Created by Nicky Rox, BA (Hons.) Shoe Designer

If you are looking for 'something a bit different' to enjoy then our 'Shoe Decorating Party' Craft Workshops are an extremely original and very exciting way to spend a sparkling couple of hours with the girls!  

As well as learning a new hobby, this fantastic shoe party is popular with groups who want to surprise an unsuspecting birthday girl or bride-to-be for a creative and fashionable hen party! 

The workshops are very relaxed and everyone is seated for 2 to 2.5 hours with the freedom to move around throughout. With professional teaching from a qualified designer on hand and a treasure trove of crystals and pearls at your fingertips (and soon to be on your shoes!) you are guaranteed a sparkly and fun party workshop! 

Everybody will be able to customise shoes at their own pace and have them ready in time to wear after the workshop. We can also guide you on how to continue after the workshop (should you choose to do a very intricate design!). If you are looking for creative party ideas, our unique workshops tick a lot of boxes if you have a group with mixed ages, would like to discover a new hobby and take away something tangible (and sparkly!).  The workshop is easy to follow and no craft experience is needed.

Rock My Shoes - our most popular craft workshop

High heels, low heels, t-bars, wedges, mules, flats, sandals, flip flops, boots or slippers!

Taught by shoe designer Nicky Rox, this shoe party is a must for any shoe fanatics! With Nicky on hand to lead the way at all times you can be sure that you and the girls will have enormous fun customising your shoes with 1000's of crystals at your fingertips! Geometric shapes, curvy swirls, intricate designs, wording and dates, bold statements or sprinkles here and there...fully encrusted crystal heels or sparkling crystal platforms ....this workshop covers it all! All you have to do is bring a clean pair of shoes (new or worn) and Nicky will provide everything else to create your masterpieces. You can bring more than one pair and decide on the day which shoes you want to customise. Shoes can be any style.

Rock My Converse

New or old rubber toe pumps, Converse, canvas high tops, boots or trainers!

Fancy making bridal canvas shoes for your BIG DAY perhaps? Your hens or birthday girls can have a night of dancing with no sore feet! You can add your new surname-to-be or your wedding date in sparkling crystals!  A crystal pair of converse or similar will tick all the boxes, with glamour and comfort going hand in hand so you can dance the night away! Every pair will be customised individually as we have lots of designs to inspire you so we know you will love your personally designed crystal flat shoes!

Rock My Wellies (& Bikini! optional)

Crystal Wellies for Festivals, Horse Riding, Country Walks and Gardening!

Thinking of having a Festival Themed or Glamping Weekend? With the unpredictable weather of the UK you never know whether its Summer or Winter weather so why not bring wellies and a bikini! Then you are set for the rain and the sunshine! Whether you Rock The Look! after the workshop in sparkling wellies and a bikini that's up to how brave you are!  Bikini's are optional.  The snow effect we can teach you using crystals and pearls looks amazing too on any colour of wellies. There are lots of designs to inspire you. Once your crystals are completely dry after the workshop you will not damage them ... so you can dance in the rain, trudge through the mud and jump in the puddles!  If they get covered in mud, just rinse your wellies with a hose pipe and see them sparkle again!

Rock My T-Shirt

Whatever you want to say, say it with sparkle and crystals! 
Customise any style of plain t-shirt by adding crystal letters.  We will help you create a slogan or a name in any wording of your choice. Taught by experienced artists.  The t-shirts can only be hand-washed after crystals have been applied.

Rock My Comic Book Shoes

Add some fun to your wedges, high heels or mules!
Appealing to a childlike and quirky side to your nature, feel like a kid again and jazz up your shoes with comic book images or something else just as snazzy that will be on offer on the day!  Its a big surprise at the workshop as to the images you will be using! Shoes to bring: wedges, high heels, mules. (Please do not bring ballerina flat pump shoes, as they are not suitable for this type of customisation work).
