Colour makes people happy

Colour Makes People Happy… and it certainly makes them messy too. We visited a quirky paint shop in South London this weekend for a 5-year-old’s birthday party (Eddie’s cousin Lloydy, no less). A strange venue for a children’s party, you might think, but walk through the wonderful world of colour and clogs to the very back of the shop and you’ll discover a crazy spinning painting machine.

Parents watched with envy as their children drizzled cups of juicy-coloured paints onto paper clipped on a large fast-spinning platform. It was made all the more daft and enjoyable by the owner of the shop, Simon, who is bonkers about colour and paint.

The shop, which is a homage to Holland, sells his own brand of Dutch paint. The tongue-in-cheek paint names would put those who name lipsticks to shame: “Many a man in love with a dimple makes the mistake of marrying the whole girl”. 

We can’t wait to frame our creations.

    Looks like great fun. Please tell me the address as I could pass this on to those with children in London whom I know.
