We hold workshops at many venues across the South Coast and can find a venue to suit your requirements or even come to you!  

We’ll make sure you have a brilliant time at the Hen Party and leave with something special and unique as a memento of your day and precious time spent with friends/family.Included in each Hen package is:

  • All the equipment, instructions and guidance you need to create something lovely to take home.
  • Choose from a welcome glass of bubbles, breakfast selection, delicious cake with tea or coffee or a full vintage afternoon tea if you’d prefer to have alongside you craft activity.

Please allow 2-3 hours for each workshop and with a minimum of 8 people. However, if you are looking to hold a smaller party please contact us and we can try to accommodate you where possible.

If you and your hens are looking to create something together for the brides wedding day this workshop is perfect for you!

Kilner jars have stood the test of time for over 150 years and in recent years have made something of a revival as people revert back to the homemade. There are so many ways to decorate them ad they make the perfect vases/decorations at weddings.

In this workshop you will create two medium sized decorative Kilner jars with a rustic twist which you could use as a vase for flowers or pretty decoration jar or tea light holder.

If you let us know your wedding colour scheme or theme, we can try to find suitable colours and images to match!

HEN HEIRLOOM QUILT from £30.00 per hen

Looking for something more personal?

Create a beautiful heirloom quilt for your hen to treasure forever as a reminder of the hen do. Or you could even make one as a present for the bride and groom’s first child. As all things handmade have fast been emerging as more personal gifts, this quilt makes the perfect gift to the bride which expresses each hen’s individual style and creativity.

In this workshop each hen will decorate their own patchwork square using a variety of fabrics and trims using basic sewing skills. But don’t worry we’ll be on hand to help with the sewing if you  struggle!
