Hello, hope you had a lovely weekend! We have some fantastic *Heavenly Hen* craft inspiration today with the wonderful *Makedomenders*
*Makedomenders* has the most fabulous range of crafty activities that would be such a lovely addition to any hen party or bridal shower. A craft party would be a fantastic way of interacting with your hens and such a great opportunity to make wedding decor or create a wonderful hen party memento. They also offer a fabulous afternoon tea, which could further enhance this creative hen party experience. We also adore the fact that *Makedomenders* create the most amazing *Craft Party Kits* filled with crafty goodies, which would be perfect if for some reason one of the fabulous craft parties isn’t an option for you.
The marvellous range of craft parties on offer from *Makedomenders* means there is something for every bride! (Please click the craft workshop you are interested in for more information)
The lovely Bee of *Makedomenders* has kindly offered to provide today’s *Pearls of Hen Wisdom*
* How did Makedomenders begin?
In 2009 I was teaching and running crochet and knit classes with a colleague and we knew there was an increasing interest in crafts. There were more and more chances to organise lovely events with craft, afternoon tea and bubbles especially for hen parties. So Makedomenders was born!
From so many places as I have been involved with the creative arts for some time. London was the first stop as there’s so much of this kind of thing happening there but it’s growing and growing all the time.
Our brides and hens that come to our parties are so pleased to show the love by creating something special either for the ‘big day’ or for their friend about to be married. It’s such a happy occasion and includes everyone from across the generations.
* If you had to describe Makedomenders in three words, what would they be?
Creative Happiness Laughter
Our workshops can take place at home or at one of our specially selected venues so we make sure it’s more than an average event. All tutors are qualified creative professionals so you know you have got the best help with the highest quality materials. At the end of every party, the guests can enjoy what they’ve made and see how skillful they’ve been!
With all the fantastic skills that the tutors bring collectively and individually, we offer sewing crafts such as quilt and bunting making, millinery with fascinator making, jewellery and leather work and a number of printmaking classes.
Our parties can be held at your home or in one of our specially selected venues in London and across the south of England
A really happy time with all the best that we can offer from messing about with lovely fabrics, colours and fancy stuff accompanied by bubbles and giggles.
* What kind of non-hen events do you offer?
As well as hen parties, we like to offer baby shower parties and birthday treats
The craft kits, Kits & Bits and the Whole Package, have everything you need in the way of materials and instruction to create your very own making and doing experience!
I think our block or lino print workshops are great for creating your own wedding stationery and our papermaking workshops are terrific for making favours and flowers.
* Your craft afternoon tea parties sound fabulous! Could you please tell us more about this?
At the same time as I was establishing Makedomenders the whole afternoon tea thing was taking off and there were so many lovely tea rooms opening that were happy to collaborate. Afternoon tea is brilliant as you can definitely craft and munch and the whole event has such a celebratory and festive vibe. I love all the cakes, sarnies and scones on their little plates with piping hot champagne. Brilliant!
The parties sound amazing, the crafty party kits sound fantastic, *Makedomenders* would enhance any hen party experience. A huge thanks to Bee of *Makedomenders* for the wonderful *Pearls of Hen Wisdom* for our *Heavenly Hens*
