Host a Party

The Nest has been built entirely by volunteers and donations. For our continued growth we are in dire need of financial support. If you think that the role we play in the community is important and significant, and would like to contribute in a tangible way, then why not organise a SHARE THE LOVE fundraiser for us! 


Essentially, a Share the Love fundraiser is a social occasion where you & your guests take part in a craft experience and enjoy festive food and drink at The Nest’s beautiful, heritage-listed home. It can be a high-tea, a luncheon or maybe a BBQ. You decide what type of occasion your guest list would suit. You can combine our Share the Love fundraiser with any agenda in which your own organisation is involved.


We have a number of facilitators who could conduct a group session for your guests so they can find out first-hand, the joy of making and the essence of The Nest. We can teach classes such as; Mandala Stone Painting, Basic Macrame, Polymer Clay Jewellery or perhaps you may have a suggestion. This would take around 1.5 hours and would take place during the festivities.


  • Gather your friends, or your work mates and book out our beautiful heritage home to share some time through a creative activity and festive food and drink.

  • We will give you a base price to cover the facilitator, and you can decide how you can raise the income and profits through either a ticket purchase price or added activities like raffles and auctions.

  • You can choose to cater for yourself, ask you guests to participate by bringing a plate or you can ask us to organise catering for you.

  • We will supply you with an invitation that you can either send via email or print. Our volunteer Event Co-ordinator; Michelle, will even sort your payments and collate your RSVP lists.

  • The profits from your function are donated to The Nest.


Most importantly because we appreciate your support, we not only offer all hosts the opportunity to attend a class for free, but if a friend books a party, you can both attend one our workshops of your choice.


At the end of the year, you could be in the running to win THE HOST WITH THE MOST competition for the most funds donated from SHARE THE LOVE!
