New Skills for Creative Hens
Hen parties are all too often associated only with booze and banter… however, this couldn’t be further from the truth!
Hen parties are all about celebrating the bride-to-be’s last days of freedom with activities and experiences she’ll love… So if you’re a creative group of girls and are looking for new skills to learn, then we’re sure you’ll have fantastic time celebrating before the wedding after taking a look at some of the creative hen party ideas we can offer you!
Why Are Hen Party Workshops so Popular?
A favourite for hen parties across the country, more and more groups are taking the hands-on approach to the pre-wedding celebrations by opting for creative hen party activities. For a start, we can bring a variety of creative mobile hen party activities directly to your house, accommodation or rented apartment. Not only is this a convenient way to celebrate and make the most of your space, but its also great for those who are travelling to a different city or town to celebrate the bride-to-be’s last days of freedom, as you won’t have to travel to a venue or hired space for your experience.
Another reason why so many hen party groups are looking at creative hen party ideas is the sheer amount of different workshops you can take part in. Is the bride-to-be notorious for having a sweet tooth? Then it would make sense to arrange a delicious chocolate making hen party where you and the girls can learn how to master the art of making some tasty treats with help from a chocolatier! Or maybe she’s a keen artist? In that case, opting for a cheeky yet sophisticated life drawing hen party for her and the rest of the girls would make perfect sense! You might even need some creative inspiration for some fabulous baby shower ideas, some of these activities could be perfect.

3. Hen Party Dance Classes
