“There are many outlets for people to learn how to draw & paint, expressing themselves through visual arts. I’ve always been a creative type who never really identified as an artist, but rather as a designer. Designher Co. will inspire kids and adults alike to design, build & create beautiful, functional goods to enliven home, work and wardrobe spaces.” – Dara Fox, Founder
In addition to specialty craft workshops, Designher Co. provides stylish solutions for birthday celebrations, bridal and baby showers, weddings, bar/bat mitzvah’s, sweet 16s, as well as school break and summer camps.
We look forward to dream, create & inspire with you!
Our 9 year old daughter had one of her best birthday parties at Designher Co. this weekend. Dara and her team hosted 16 kids and everyone left feeling terrific about the crafts they made and the fun they had. Dara was extremely proactive and organized leading up to the party. On the day of the party, she was very relaxed and patient with the kids. Anytime I tried to jump in and help with something she insisted that I relax and enjoy the festivities and let her and her staff take care of all the details. The venue is so cheerful, clean and whimsical. Both the boys and girls at the party had a great time and it was interesting to see how many of the boys wanted to do the same kinds of crafts and jewelry as the girls. The loot bags that Dara put together were so unique and went far beyond the usual loot bag fare. I cannot say enough about DesignHer Co – it is a top notch place and we will be back for more very soon!Amanda Y.
The party was great – my daughter and her friends had a fabulous time, and loved the crafts they made. Dara was excellent.Melanie J.
Great party for 12 year girls. I was looking for a party that would not be too babyish for my 12 year old and this was perfect.
All the girls had fun and the stacked bracelets that they made were a hit. I would definitely consider the camp programs. Shira W.
Rylee did a week of dance & design camp and had the BEST time! She said everyone was so nice and she loved the dances she learned and games she played and is proud of her fashion (designs)! The presentation for parents at the end of the week was fun to watch too! great time!Jordanna B.
My girls had a great time at the workshop at Designher Co. this Saturday. They had so much fun, they asked to book the next session!Melany K.
Thanks Dara for making my daughter’s camp experience at Designher Co this summer so awesome. Her days were filled with fun, excitement, creativity, imagination, inspiration, friendship and learning. She looked so forward to each day and what new surprises were in store. She treasures each fashion accessory that she created at camp and is very proud to show them off (and they are all fantastic!!!). She spoke of you as one of the best camp leaders she has ever had and she is looking forward to seeing you again at camp next summer. Designher Co is a wonderful opportunity for all children/youth, especially the budding fashionistas. Congratulations and best wishes for continued success…see you next summer!!!
My daughter and her friends had an amazing time creating their very cool stacked bracelets. Thank you for being accommodating to my sons as well…as they said “I love this place”!Cynthia P.
Thank you so much for an exceptionally beautiful and fun party. Arayah had an amazing 6th birthday party with her friends and wants to come back for workshops. The necklaces the girls made were stunning and went perfect with their boxes that they decorated. Thanks again, it was well worth it! Bianca and Chris- very happy parentsBianca K.
Wonderful party, Dara. Our group of 11 year-old girls had a lovely time crafting and chatting while listening to good music. Everyone felt special indeed.Cristina A.
I want to thank you for an amazing birthday party. Alanna said it was her best birthday party ever and that she had so much fun making cool bracelets with her friends. And from my perspective, the party was so easy as the staff did everything! It was a perfect, age appropriate party for my 10-year-old daughter. Looking forward to seeing you again the future.Jodi M.
My daughter had a fantastic time at the dance and design summer camp. They brought out her creativity while making jewelry and fashions. I was also amazed at the dance routines they put together in a week! Friendly and caring staff. Great Camp.Michelle W.
My daughter had an amazing time for the one week camp she was signed up for. She made some great crafts, and did awesome dancing and yoga. The show they put on at the end was very well organized. I would send my daughter back again!Sarah S.
Everything was well organized and the staff were very helpful. The kids had a great time. Thank you for help making Liliana’s birthday a success!Lee-Anne W.
Thank you for making Dinah’s party so unique and enjoyable. I often find that kids Birthday parties can be a whole world of stress for the hosts where all the kids (or at least my kids!) really remember afterwards is the cake! Not at the wonderful parties you organise – the crafts that the children made are truly beautiful and such special keepsakes for both the Birthday girl and her friends.Your team is brilliantly organised and efficient, keeping the atmosphere calm and the kids happily occupied. Dinah had the best time, before the party even finished she told me that she would like her next birthday party to be at Designher Co.! You could not ask for a better compliment. We can not wait for camp at Designher Co. this summer!Lucinda G.
My daughter loved all the jewelry that was made and how nice her teacher was (in the school lunch club program)! Thanks!Michelle L.
My daughter and I had a great time with Dara at Designher Co. We did the Jewelry Making workshop and learned about new tools and materials to make some awesome bracelets. We would love to take another class with Dara and will tell our friends about Designher Co. Dara is funny and patient and really fun to work with.Susan R.
We had our daughters 8 year old party at Designher Co. We just loved it. The girls had an amazing time and were busy the whole time. You guys organized EVERYTHING and helped with EVERYTHING. Thank you so much.Shalini S.
My daughter loved the lunch program at her school. Every Friday she came home with a new creation that she was so proud to show everyone. Would totally recommend this program. She is all excited for the spring session to start.Katie B.
Designher Co. [Dance & Design Camp] quickly became my daughter’s favourite camp of the summer (out of 6 camps); she will definitely be returning next year.Sheri A.
Just two words: very impressive! You know there are ‘picky eaters’ but I have two girls who are ‘picky campers’. Both declared their July 6-10 session ‘the best camp ever’. It is really hard to say who was more impressed: the girls or their mom. Will I recommend the place? Check! Will we come back? Check it again! Many thanks to Dara, Amanda, Avery and the staff for the job well done.Iana C.
Celebrated my daughter’s 7th Birthday today at Designher Co. and it kept the children very occupied crafting, and was also very fun. Dara and Avery were really good hosts and provided them with all the help and assistance necessary to get their tasks done! Loved it, and I recommend this place to everyone in need of a FANTASTIC place to host any elementary school age Birthdays! Thanks Designher Co! Love! :)Leiko M.
My daughter loved the program at Hillcrest ! She was so proud of her necklace she made, and that’s worth everything. Angela T.
Thank you very much for taking care of our girls during Su’s birthday party. You organized the activities and the dinner time perfectly. (Pizza from next door was very convenient.) Tie dye t-shirts turned out to be a great idea.
The place looks so beautiful in my pictures. It was clean, fresh and spacious enough for us.
They had so much fun. Thank you. I am so glad we organized this together. It was just what I wanted for her. Yasemin T.
We celebrated my daughter’s 9th birthday. She said it was the best party she ever had. I loved how organized it was. The room was set up when we arrived. The girls had a great time making their jewelry and were totally engaged for the entire party which ran like clockwork. The staff took care of everything, even all of the clean up after the cake and food. I highly recommend Designher Co. Great party! Thanks Dara!Ariana B.
My daughter loved spending the day at DesignherCo. The bracelet, ring and toque were a fun and age-appropriate activity. She was proud of her work and saw a way to carry on the projects at home- a level of confidence and independence! She is looking forward to participating in the next PA Day!Larissa R.
What great fun! We went as a party of 5 women for a friend’s birthday and Dara was so lovely. She walked us through the processes step-by-step and was hands on when we needed help. Our necklaces are beautiful (store worthy) and all very different.
Thank you so much for having us we will be back for sure!Christine L.
My daughter declared her Designher Co. birthday “the best party ever”! She had a blast, so did the guests. I loved that they went home with quality pieces, not junky arts and crafts stuff. The music part at the end was great fun too. You ladies are awesome. Thanks so much for making the easiest party I’ve ever hosted.Terri B.
My daughter and her friend felt so grown up at the jewelry workshop they attended! It was a great experience. Thanks, Dara!
Thanks, Dara for a great birthday party. You know how to keep a group of 8-year old girls happy & entertained!! My daughter and her friends had a great time designing t-shirts and making bracelets — they felt like real fashionistas! We’ll be back!! Marnie P.
Loved [Dance & Design Camp] it! It was the perfect balance of creativity, design and skills development.Pearl B.
My daughter loves your workshops. And it’s so great that they are offered through the school.Susan B.
