Raw Celebrations

Looking for a reason to celebrate? Look no further with Raw Celebrations

There’s no denying that the people of Newcastle love a good reason to celebrate, but the real question is, how can we make the most of a celebration? Look no further than Newcastle’s premier event and original paint and sip studio, Raw Celebrations!

Launched in late 2016 by local couple Ellysha and Dave, Raw Celebrations was born out of a combined love for celebrating.

“Between us, we have ten siblings, so we know how to create a party vibe and are usually the first ones on a dancefloor or to remember to snap some photos during family events.

“We wanted to help people experience a great atmosphere for their celebrations, particularly for events like hens, birthdays, or baby showers. Those events where you often have a group of people from different parts of your life who may not know each other. We create a great atmosphere and a common experience so that the rest of your celebration runs smoothly. Everyone can relax and enjoy,” El said.

Whatever the event, a hen’s group, a birthday party, team building, or even just a group of friends on a night out, Raw Celebrations offers an experience you’ll never forget. Currently offering five very unique workshops, there is an option to suit whatever your group might be after.

Life Drawing Workshops 

One of Raw’s more popular workshops for private events, Life Drawing offers an introduction to working with charcoal in a light-hearted and fun environment.

“Hens, birthdays, we’ve even had a few divorce parties… the first life drawing workshop I ever attended was nine years ago for my sister in laws hens party. I thought it would be awkward (especially going with your in-laws), but it was really fun, I remember being really surprised at how proud I was of my drawings.”

Flower Crown Workshops

Laidback and really fun, the Flower Crown workshops are a perfect way to kick off a day of celebrating.

“I am always so amazed how the same mix of flowers can create 10-20 completely different flower crowns; people really create something that reflects their personality. We get big, bold, and colourful, to a whimsical minimal style and everything in between.”

Yoga and Sip

Yes, you read that right, Yoga and Sip! Imagine having a good old stretch with your nearest and dearest with a good glass of wine in hand! Raw works with local yoga instructors to create something that takes yoga seriously all whilst sipping or topping up your wine.

“They are a really great balance of laughs and relaxation, the instructors we work with really nail the mix of both.”

Watercolour Card Making

Created out of El’s love for snail mail, the Watercolour Card Making workshop is both a fun experience as it is giving you something to take home and send on to a loved one!

“I send cards to my nieces and nephews all the time and still send Christmas cards to family and friends. I love how meaningful a handwritten card is and I save all the special ones I get given.”
