Inspired Bride Masterclass

Recently, we welcomed Inspired Bride editors Sally and Rachel into the Crafty Hen offices for a special vintage garter masterclass. They spent a sunny afternoon in the courtyard getting crafty and learning how to make their very own bespoke garters over tea and biscuits.

With a Little Help from Intern Ellen

Last month we were lucky enough to have a lovely intern called Ellen join us at Crafty HQ to gain an insight into the way we work and even help run a few of our crafty party workshops. Ellen was a huge help whilst she was here and supplied us with LOTS of cakes and treats on her last day. (Bonus points for Ellen!) Read on below to find out how Ellen found her time as a crafty hen intern:

Getting Crafty with Laura Ashley

Who doesn't like Laura Ashley fabrics and wallpapers?

When a huge delivery of beautifully printed wallpapers and rolls of lovely fabric arrived at Crafty HQ, we were all dreaming of which Laura Ashley prints we would most like to decorate our homes with. But, instead, we behaved ourselves and kept all the latest Spring/Summer fabrics and wallpapers ready to run another bespoke blogger workshop.

Crafty Adventures to Unusual Locations

Over the past few years, we have been getting crafty in every corner of the UK. From the Isle of Wight to the Highlands of Scotland, and from Brighton to Belfast - and everywhere in between! Normally, we are quite accustomed to running our crafty workshops in groups' homes, holiday cottages, bars, cafes and even a few luxurious penthouse suites along the way! Wherever suits each individual group the best.

#HillarysCrafternoon

Last weekend we were invited along to run two bespoke workshops in Birmingham and Cardiff as part of Hillarys Blinds crafternoon event. Lots of lovely bloggers descended upon The Custard Factory in Birmingham on Saturday and Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff on Sunday for a fun afternoon of crafting!

New Workshop - DIY Baby Mobile

We're excited to be launching a new range of crafty workshop activities in the new year! These latest workshop options are perfect for Baby Showers and will be a lovely treat for any Mum-To-Be.

Our favourite of these new Baby Shower activities has to be the Baby Mobile making workshop! Perfect for bringing all the new-Mum's closest friends and family together and work on a charming keepsake to hang above the cot in the baby's bedroom.

Prop Box Party Fun

Photo booths have become a fun addition to many parties, celebrations and weddings over recent years! If you would love to have a photo booth at your wedding or upcoming party but don't want to splash out on hiring a big professional photo booth, why not create your own DIY photo booth? With lots of crafty props to keep all your guests posing away all night long!

Cocktails and Crafting

Our crafty workshops always work well when our crafty hens are fuelled by delicious cocktails! If you are planning to book one of our Crafty Hen workshops, did you know you can still enjoy professionally made cocktails from the comfort of your own home or holiday cottage to accompany your crafty session?
