Garter Making Workshop

A classic hen do activity with a creative twist. Every hen gets to make a fun keepsake garter, whilst the Bride-To-Be learns how to make her own unique wedding garter!

Create a garter from beautiful lace and ribbons, then make fabric flowers, add bows, beads and trims to personalise. It could be the Bride-To-Be's 'something blue'!

The Bride can make a unique and very special wedding garter, and all the hens get to make one for fun. We provide a wide choice of coloured lace and show you different ways you can construct your garter. Once made you can add lots of decorative touches including ribbons, bows, buttons and more, or we can show you how to make your very own finishing flourishes using the wide assortment of materials provided. 

This workshop is also available as a vintage option with a selection of vintage and antique lace. Let your Bride create her 'something old' using vintage lace, and accompany it with some 'something blue' ribbon too!

We are so pleased we booked The Crafty Hen for my friend’s hen do. Being a naturally creative person anyway, this activity suited her down to the ground and it was so much fun learning a new craft whilst sipping some bubbly and having fun! We went for the garter making class and all of us were pleased with our creations - some of us were actually really surprised we made something that actually looked good! But it was all down to the lovely ladies who ran the class, helped us when we struggled and provided a fun atmosphere. The range of materials and colours they provided were great and meant that everybody came away with something unique. I would 100% recommend The Crafty Hen - they were professional, friendly and organised and I would book them again in a heartbeat. Thank you!
