About Me

What a treat to be witness to the memories shared during hen parties, baby showers and birthdays. I love watching and assisting the new and exciting creations brought to life by each participant.

My Favourite Things

I play in a folk band and enjoy crafting new things from old, drawing, painting, growing herbs and sitting in front of a nice crackling fire.

Area of Expertise

Illustration, Painting and Textiles - I love to paint both figurative and abstract with oils, inks, acrylics and charcoal (anything that allows me to get a bit messy).

My wonderful little sister (maid of honour) surprised me at my hen do last weekend with flower crown class with The Crafty Hen. Cara was wonderful, she explained all of the instructions in details and was encouraging and supportive throughout the session. She was complementary, enthusiastic and helpful and made everyone feel at ease. It was such a wonderful part of the day and I want to wear my flower crown all the time. Thank you Cara for adding such a wonderful touch to such a special day.

Wanted to thank Cara for doing such a brilliant job of the patchwork session she did on Saturday. She was so patient and really helped some of the hens who weren’t so sure about sewing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session and I think Holly will be thrilled with the quilt when it’s been made.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Cara for the fascinator workshop that she did for us on the 25th July for our friends Hen Do. We all enjoyed the class and now have beautiful fascinators too. Cara got everyone involved and helped us all - expanding our ideas to create something which we never thought we could. I will be recommending your workshops to friends - there are so many workshops to choose from!!

Thank you so much for our workshop - the session was absolutely fantastic. Cara was brilliant and was able to give us all her time and advice. I think some of the girls were very surprised at what they were able to achieve, and everyone’s fascinators looked gorgeous. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough - thank you!
