New Skills for Creative Hens...

It’s a well-known fact that children learn things easier and quicker than adults. Part of this is due to the innate capacity of the young brain but it is also due to the fact that the teaching of new skills to young people almost always employs aspects of FUN; educating adults often neglects this crucial aspect. You can make this fun/learning aspect work the other way round as an adult…

Here’s how it works: if you’re out to have some fun, you can also get a bit of education along with it. What could be better than having all your mates with you, enjoying all the banter and a party atmosphere to boot? Having all your mates with you, enjoying the banter and party atmosphere AND coming away from it all with a brand new skill!

Here at Funktion Events, we have a whole host of activities that are designed with these thoughts in mind. Whichever you choose, you’ll have a great time learning something new and you’ll have a qualified instructor right there along with you to make sure you discover all the ins and outs of your chosen activity. This means you’ll have more than just a working knowledge of it which you will be able to use after, whether its just to impress your mates or even as the basis of a new career… here are some of our most popular creative activities:

1920s Flapper Headband Making

Flapper Headband Making

The 1920s was one of the most stylish and sophis­ticated decades, with a post-war boom in new fashions. Clothing designs created during this time still have an enduring influence on modern fashion and the cult-like flappers were right at the forefront of devel­op­ments. With this activity, you will learn how to create that signature look with just one accessory: the headband.

This is a mobile activity which means that you can choose your own location; our expert designer will come to you, bringing with them all of the knowledge, skills and materials your party needs to each create their own unique 1920s flapper headband, which could form the basis of a theme for the drinking-and-dancing part of your hen experience. There are lots of other mobile experiences in the same vein from  fascinator and garter making to cocktail rings, flower crowns and even knickers!
