Developing a Bespoke Crafty Hen

A few months ago we were contacted by one bridesmaid, hoping to plan the perfect hen party for her lucky Bride To Be. With grand plans for a bespoke craft workshop that was a little more unusual than our core range of ever popular creative hen parties. Now, we like a bit of a creative challenge here at Crafty HQ, and we loved this bespoke workshop concept so said yes right away!
