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!

Thank you for hosting the garter making event. Everyone had a wonderful time.
Special thanks for the patience of the Crafty Hen ladies in assisting with the sewing (it’s fair to say a few people hadn’t picked up a needle and thread for quite a while!).
