Now, if you know us here at The Crafty Hen, you know we are big fans of bunting! To us, no wedding, celebration or even home is complete without a sting of beautiful bunting to decorate it with. Which is why our Bunting Making parties are one of our favourite sessions to run - as well as being one of our most popular crafty workshops for hen parties, birthdays and baby showers alike.

The more personalised the bunting the better! Which is why all our groups get to request the exact colour scheme of the bunting they would like to make.
