How we work

We like to make it easy, relaxed and friendly.

Hassle free for you

We can come along to your event, inside or outside.  We’ll bring all the kit we need including chairs, tables and even a gazebo if it’s needed.  All we ask of you is a little space to set up, water and light so we can see what we’re doing! We’ll arrive early so we’re all set up and ready to go when you are.  And if there’s a special person to get ready first, we’ll make sure this happens!

Take your pick

We can work with you to identify the best services for your event.  Some work better at some events than others.  Nails for example can take quite a while so we normally only offer this to smaller groups, but we’ll be guided by you as you know your audience the best!  See some of our package ideas for inspiration.

What our customers say about us

aRTy designs came and gave a very organised & fun, no fuss service to a large bunch of eager 6 year olds! They had loads of images to choose from and for those that weren’t sure about paint on their faces had the chance for a little picture on their arms. Really friendly approach that put even the shyest of the group at ease. Thank you very much!” Kathryn, Nr Wellingborough, Northamptonshire


aRTy designs are so friendly. They’re great with children and adults alike, and the designs they create are amazing!  It certainly helps the party atmosphere!”  Mark, Nr Raunds, Northamptonshire


“Brilliant artists! Made lots of little girls happy and sparkly at my daughters birthday party! Never thought so much detail could go into face painting. Brilliant!”  Anna, Nr Kettering, Northamptonshire
