With another year tucked under our belts, it's time to look back on all the fun creative hen party activities we've run in 2015. It's been a busy year for The Crafty Hen! Taking our workshops to all corners of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and getting to share our crafty skills with thousands of people celebrating hundreds of special occasions!
2015 saw us introduce a whole host of exciting new craft party options as well as developing our core hen party workshops, making them better than ever!
We've pulled together all the stats to calculate our most popular crafty hen party sessions of 2015. Can you guess which hen party workshop came in at number one?
As the most popular option of our various jewellery focused sessions, Cocktail Ring makinghas made it into the top 5 of all our 2015 workshops. Perfect for discovering a few fun jewellery making techniques all whilst making a special piece of jewellery to add some sparkle to your outfits.
Coming in at a very respectable 4th is our Bunting Making hen party workshops. We enjoy putting together all the fabrics, materials and trims for this session as it gives us a little insight into each and every crafty bride's wedding colour scheme! Tailoring the materials to perfectly co-ordinate with the different colour schemes means we so often see the wedding trends come and go.
