About Me

Running sessions with The Crafty Hen is so much fun. The Hen's and I have a great time together and enjoy the creative choices and process as well as proudly wearing their finished piece!. There's always lots of laughter and no matter how creative you are; anyone and everyone can join in and make something fantastic and unique to them at the hen party workshop.

My Favourite Things

I have my own theatrical fashion label and enjoy creating intricate beaded and dramatic pieces for this. I also love vintage clothing and always look out for fabrics and clothing in vintage and charity shops to alter and adjust. I also like to illustrate and paint in my free time.

Super relaxed and good fun. Rachael’s instruction was very simple and clear so it was easy to pick up new techniques.

I can’t thank you all, and especially Rachael, enough for the wonderful flower crown workshop on Saturday! The workshop was excellent, and we all thoroughly enjoyed making our own crowns. It was a really nice way to meet everyone and get some quiet time before the hectic pace of the rest of the weekend. Please pass on my thanks to Rachael, she was really helpful and friendly throughout.
My thanks again for a great workshop- I will recommend The Crafty Hen to my friends!

I had an amazing time. It’s a great laugh and Rachael was a patient and helpful teacher. Never thought I’d manage this!
