Great workshop, so many excellent resources, and Clare was so kind and helpful. I would definitely do it again.

I’m pleased to report that everything went very well with the craft session. Clare was perfectly on time and was very friendly and approachable. She showed us the materials available and gave us helpful advice as she was moving around the tables checking on our progress. The session really did exceed all expectations with all of us producing wearable fascinators. I can’t thank you enough for all your patience and help through the stressful planning stages and for a fab crafting session. I will certainly bear The Crafty Hen in mind for any other special celebration.
