5 Crafty Hen Party Ideas

Posted on May 04, 2017 by The Makery | 1 comment

A hen party is a major event in a bride-to-be’s life. It’s a time to get together with the most important women in her life and enjoy a well-deserved break from stressful wedding planning.

Organising the all-important hen do is a tricky task as there are so many decisions to make. Does the party idea exclude any of the attendees? Is the venue easy for everyone to get to? Is it mum-friendly? And what about the budget?

If the bride-to-be doesn’t just want to dance on tables, stray from the norm and throw a different kind of hen do instead. Here are 5 great hen party ideas.

1) Hen party at The Makery, Bath

We have beautiful premises in Bath and host a variety of popular hen party activities. These are perfect if your bride-to-be is a creative soul or is up for trying something a bit different. We’ll teach you how to make your own flower crowns, garters and even nipple tassels! Set up for all levels of ability, we’re fully licensed (10% discount on pre-orders), very central and include a free Hen Party Challenge that gets you out and about in the stunning city of Bath.

Make your own flower crowns, nipple tassels & more at our workshops.

2) Crafty party at home

Can’t make it to Bath? Not to worry – we can deliver hen party kits direct to your door. Using either our detailed instructions or our super fun online video tutorials, you can all make nipple tassels, bunting and garters using these fab little kits. These crafty activities are sure to get everyone giggling, especially after a glass of wine or two!

Make your own garters, nipple tassels and bunting with our handy home kits.

3) Life drawing workshop (Bath)

The cheekier hens out there will love our life drawing class in Bath. Learning a new skill fuelled by a few beverages guarantees a fun-filled afternoon (trust us, we’ve been running these parties for 8 years!).

Our life drawing classes are one of our most popular hen party ideas.

4) Freehand machine embroidery workshop (John Lewis, London)

Freehand machine embroidery is one of our most popular workshops – and for good reason. This is suitable for beginners so everyone can create their own lovely keepsake.

Our freehand machine embroidery workshop is a lot of fun!

5) Sew your own knickers workshop (John Lewis, London)

If you fancy more of a challenge, our knickers sewing workshop gives you just that. This class requires some experience with a sewing machine, making it ideal for a group of craft lovers.
