Is the bride-to-be a creative soul? Perhaps an introvert who prefers a calmer activity with a smaller group? Or someone who just loves to be a bit different? One or two craft workshops could be the perfect option for her hens party, bridal shower or kitchen tea!
It’s easy to organise, and will be an unforgettable experience. Learn more below...!
WHAT ARE CRAFT WORKSHOPS?
Creative workshops are all about the fun and relaxation that comes with learning an art and creating something beautiful. You’ll be guided by passionate experts, who will provide you with all the knowledge and ingredients you’ll need to learn a new crafty skill. Unleash your imagination while having a great time with your friends.
SOME OF THE FUN CREATIVE WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE
Try Ikebana flower arranging - learn about the history and techniques behind this Japanese art while you apply it hands-on to create your very own graceful arrangement. Or create bouquets or flower crowns at a pristine beach, under the guidance of an expert florist.
If you’re a group of foodies, try making your own macaroons or chocolate. And if you’re more into the eating than the cooking, you can draw your dessert and eat it too, in a fun watercolour painting session!
Alternatively, you may want to discover how tea and chocolate can be paired, and if you’re adventurous, perhaps even tea and cheese (the pairings generate subtle third flavours that you’ll pleasantly discover).
A GIFT THAT LASTS
If you’d like to take away something lasting to remember the occasion by, invite your group to a candle making class where you can choose your own scents and colours.
You could even try a terrarium making class and design your own petite garden landscapes. It’s like the adult version of a dollhouse – you decide what goes in! Terrariums are super easy to maintain, and will beautify your and the bride’s home or office for many years to come.
Prefer something to wear? Why not embark on a jewellery making crafternoon, where you’ll get to make unique artisan necklaces, earrings and more.
Once she’s married, it may be harder to get her by herself; so this may be one of your last opportunities to do something really girly. Try painting pretty, petite pebbles, and even string them up to create your own original jewellery.
