Frequently Asked Questions

Why book with us?

We are the original nationwide crafty party provider!

For almost five years we have been taking our crafty hen parties, our creative corporate events, our quirky Christmas crafternoons and even our alternative baby shower activities all around England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (Prior to this we ran sessions across the South of England for 8 years). We take the time and effort to put together the perfect craft party package for everyone who books with us, tailoring the materials to your specific requests, coming to you at you chosen venue at whatever time suits you the best, and providing high quality contemporary and vintage materials for everyone to dig into on the day.
We scout out only the best crafts people to join our brood of Little Hens, so we can be sure that they can pass on their wealth of expertise to you all whilst having fun in a creative yet informal environment.

Can you cater for events other than hen parties?

Of course, we regularly do birthday parties, baby showers, team building, corporate events, children’s arty parties, and sessions just because you want them! We realise the majority of options here on the website are very much aimed at hen parties, so if you have another event that you are interested in a craft workshop for, get in touch and we can discuss some alternative options with you. All our team are used to catering for varied audiences and include children. Any people working with young people are also CRB/ DBS checked.

Where do you travel to?

We cover the whole of the UK, England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, we have members of our team based right across these areas, so we can be sure we can cover your party! We’ve run sessions in Edinburgh and down to Cornwall, Glasgow to Kent, Belfast to Brighton, Cardiff to Norfolk, and everywhere in between... you get the idea... we can come to you anywhere!

Can we do more than one activity in our session?

Although technically we can cater for more than one option, we encourage you not to for a number of reasons. Firstly it really divides the group and at a party its great to have all those involved working on something similar, or at least using the same materials, so they can share the experience. We would also in all likelyhood need to provide more than one tutor, therefore you would need a minimum of 10 people taking part in each activity, to make it cost effective for you.

There is a man in our group, can you cater for him?

We often have men in our classes, so this isn't really a problem at all, we have had men customising pants, making corsages and buttonholes, and even making garters! We are happy to provide some more man friendly materials as well, just let us know to expect any gentlemen!

On what day or time can we have our party?

Well that is up to you! Most of our hen party and baby shower groups choose Saturdays whilst many of our birthday party sessions run on week day evenings and our Christmas works party classes often happen in the afternoons mid-week. We can cater for any day of the week, or time of day you require! We don’t have set times for our sessions and can work around you and your plans. It’s worth keeping in mind that we need a little time to set up our sessions, anything between 10 to 30 minutes, but this varies a little from session to session.

How long are the craft sessions?

Between 2 & 3 hours depending on the session, check out the individual session pages to find out more. If you choose a bespoke session this may vary a little

Where can we have our session?

Anywhere really, we just need enough space for everyone to sit down and a place for our materials.

Can you help us find a venue to hold the session in?

Yes, we have a long list of specially selected venues across the UK, we can make suggestions based on your enquiry.

Are you looking for people to join your team of workshop leaders?

Often yes, with some areas of the UK we are very covered, others we always like to keep people on file, ready for any sessions that may come up. If you feel you have what it takes to become one of our fun, friendly workshop leaders and have experience of teaching crafts, including textiles and jewellery making, please get in touch and we'll give you full application details. Please note we are not seeking workshop proposals.

Do you cater for large groups?

Yes! Some of our sessions lend themselves particularly well for larger groups, such as our knicker customisation session. We have worked with groups of up to 40 people for hen parties, and up to 200 for other events, we can easily cater for any group size. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Do you charge travel costs to get to my venue?

No. You pay the amount per person for the session, there are no extras to this. We have our team based all over the UK, so usually we provide the closest person to your venue. The only exception to this maybe if you are in very remote places, like the Scottish islands or Highlands. We will inform you of this with your enquiry if this is applicable.
