#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!

Most Popular Workshops - 2014

It has been a great year for The Crafty Hen with thousands of crafty hens taking part in hen party, baby shower and birthday party workshops all over the UK. The Crafty Hen has been been far and wide from Ballymena, Northern Ireland to Kincross, Scotland and from Gwynedd, Wales to Kent, England. And everywhere in between!

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?

A Crafty Christmas

Planning a Christmas lunch or get together with friends? Why not take it as an opportunity to combine a nice catch up with friends over a great afternoon tea whilst learning to craft your own Christmas gifts?

The Popularity of Patchwork Quilts

We've been running our quilt making workshop for quite a while as part of our bespoke range of sessions. But in the last few months we have seen such a huge surge in requests for this crafty activity that we have now officially added it as its own workshop listing! We're excited to launch this session in its own right and also include the option to make patchwork cushions too.

Wedding Garter Secrets

Whilst our garter making workshops are a good giggle for all the hens as everyone gets to make their own garter, for the Bride it is a little more special as she is creating the garter she will be wearing on the big day. Now, everyone knows how important the wedding garter is for the bride to wear, but did you know that it actually has a long history, a chequered past and lots of tradition associated with it?

Scrapbooking is in Vogue

Scrapbooks are back in fashion! According to the Independent, retailers are reporting a huge rise in the sales of scrapbooks, stamps, decorative tape, stickers and other related accesses.

From the Hen’s Point of View

We recently held a wonderful Memory Book workshop in Bath and we asked some of the cratfy hens to share their thoughts with us about the session, the experience and the special Memory Book they all created together.
