Hen Parties

Creative Eco-Friendly Workshops for an Unforgettable Hen Party Experience

Don’t fancy a noisy pub crawl while decked out in L-plates for your hen party? Then you’ve come the the right place!

Our fun, relaxing craft workshops are like a spa day for your soul… you’ll leave refreshed, relaxed and ready for your big day as you make something truly unique to take away.

Unwind in our cosy craft studio, set at the edge of our beautiful nature reserve, while you share some creative time out with your favourite people. As you sip on a warm cup of tea and indulge in delicious cake, we will guide you through the process of making a special keepsake to take home as a memory of your special day. And, to make your experience even more special, we will treat you to a glass of bubbly to toast the bride-to-be.

Join us for a fun day filled with laughter, creativity, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Why choose us?

If you’re looking for a unique, eco-friendly and non-alcohol related hen activity that everyone can participate in and enjoy, this is it! Our creative hen parties are not only different to the usual hen party activities (you won’t find any L-plates or inappropriately shaped snacks here!), we go the extra mile to make sure the bride-to-be and her whole tribe leave feeling relaxed and refreshed in mind and body. And as well as connecting with your favourite people as you craft your perfect keepsake, you’ll also spend some time unwinding in our beautiful nature reserve. It’s like a spa day for your soul!

Don’t just take our word for it…

Such a fantastic time!

I cannot recommend Sophie and Lucy’s workshops enough. We went to the Jewellery Inspired by Nature class for my sister’s hen party and had such a fantastic time. From start to finish everything was so well run and Sophie and Lucy even went out of their way to put up some hen party decorations in the studio and also catered for everyone’s dietary requirements. Even though the weather wasn’t on our side, it didn’t take away from the experience at all. If you’re looking for a unique, eco-friendly and non-alcohol related hen activity that everyone can participate in and enjoy, this is it! I’m absolutely in love with the necklace I made and haven’t stopped wearing it since. Thanks so much again Windrush!

Workshop options

All of our craft workshops are perfect for hen parties – have a look at the options below and then get in touch to chat about how we can create an unforgettable hen party experience just for you!

Jewellery Inspired by Nature

Groups up to 8

Unplug and recharge as ecologist and silversmith Sophie guides you to make your own bespoke fine silver pendant inspired by nature. You will begin on an immersive nature walk following deer trails through the magical woodland and stunning bogland, gathering natural materials and inspiration as you learn about the folklore of plants and explore nature with your senses. Then return to the cosy craft studio, nestled into the nature reserve, where Sophie will show you how to cast your piece of nature using eco-friendly silver clay, to create a timeless keepsake you will treasure forever.

Felting with the Flock

Groups up to 14

Relax and have fun as you learn the art of 3D needle felting. Farmers and craftswomen Sophie and Lucy will introduce you to their friendly flock of gorgeous sheep, where you can feed, pet and even take selfies with them! You’ll learn about the wonders of wool, and see how it is processed from lamb-to-loom for felting. Then snug in the cosy craft studio, with sheep right outside the window, and views of the nature reserve, Sophie and Lucy will help you create your own mini-sheep to take home!  

Art in the Wild

Groups up to 20

Unwind your mind and connect with nature as artist Lucy and ecologist Sophie take you on a wild wander through the stunning nature reserve, as you explore nature with your senses and gather natural materials and inspiration to make your own art materials from the wild. Then unleash your creativity as you make your own eco-friendly journal, leaf-printed bag, charcoal from willow, and pigments, inks, brushes and more from the wild. Finish with some mindful downtime in nature, where you’ll use your new materials to capture a lasting memory of your experience.  

What’s included?

All of our workshops include expert facilitation, as well as all of the materials needed to help each participant create their one-of-a-kind handcrafted keepsake to take home, as well as light refreshments (coffee/tea, biscuits & yummy cake!). In addition, we’ll treat you all to a glass of organic, non-alcoholic bubbly to toast the bride-to-be!

Anything else I should know?

As the workshops are held on a working farm and include an outdoor element, participants will need to bring suitable clothing (e.g. wellies/boots, rain jacket, warm layers on colder days).

The workshops do consist of some outdoor elements in natural areas on uneven ground. The nature trail includes some slopes, and travels over small logs etc. and the nature trail and farm paths are not currently wheelchair accessible. However, workshops may be adapted to suit participants with additional physical needs and we ask you to please get in touch prior to booking to discuss your needs.

Availability, times & price:

All of our hen parties are bespoke to your needs, and we can work with you on an option tailored for your group size and budget. To chat about availability & pricing please get in touch by emailing Sophie at [email protected]
