The activities were great fun especially the flower crown making and the transfers went smoothly. Thank you for your help in organising everything for us, I will definitely recommend you, my daughter was so happy!
If the bride-to-be loves to make and do, these workshops offer her the opportunity to do just that! Roll up your sleeves and get stuck into a wealth of fabrics, sequins and paint. It doesn’t matter if you are total novice or haven’t got a crafty, arty bone in your body, our expert teacher will gently guide you through the workshop whilst the rest of the hen group giggles at the outcome.
Craft workshops are really popular with our hen groups. Getting all creative and conjuring up some customised knickers or beautiful flower crowns is a great, fun way to keep the party going. You could even match your creations with the wedding colours so the bridal squad all rock up in the same designs. The best part is that everyone gets a keepsake from the weekend which is a wonderful way for the bride-to-be to remember her special weekend.
“…The craft session was also a huge success, everyone loved it. My friend was a very happy bride to be 😊 ..” Lisa, Chew Magna Farmhouse

“…The hen herself was very excited to be making something for her wedding and with 18 of us working together we made much more than they expected! They bought some fabulous vintage fabrics and were the perfect amount of helping yet keeping out of the way at the same time. Worth every penny I think, and will be lovely to look at the bunting at the wedding and to know that we made it!..” Zoe
