Loch Lomond fascinator making craft hen party!

We were thrilled to be asked to run a hen party fascinator making class by the lovely Eilidh recently.  She was organising her best friend’s hen party in the stunning High Wards Luxury Lodge in Alexandria and was looking for a craft based activity to do.  We arrived (after several “detours” i.e. totally lost – oops! Tomtom’s fault…) at lunchtime at the beautiful house to meet the lovely hens. The wedding colour theme was black watch tartan so we had tailored this class to the theme and had designed a number of fascinators and brooches made with black watch tartan fabric so that the girls could all make pieces to tie in to the theme of the big day.

There was a mix of crafting and sewing experience amongst the hens with some never having made anything in their life before whilst others were queen sewing bees, but everyone created a fantastic fascinator or brooch to be proud of!

It was a fantastic afternoon in a gorgeous location (which we would thoroughly recommend to other hen parties looking for accommodation in the Alexandria/Loch Lomond region!) and we can’t wait to do another hen party there in the future!

Here are some snaps of the fascinator making class hen party in action:

Hen party fascinator making classes can be held in one of our Edinburgh venues including Hotel du Vin, the Bonham Hotel, the Howard Hotel, Hemma, Urban Angel or Norton House Hotel or at your own venue – whichever suits you best. As long as there’s enough table space that’s all we need really!  All of our venues offer afternoon tea which can also be served with bubbles (which we find often helps with people’s creativity!!!) or various other drinks and snacks.  We can also travel to other venues within Edinburgh or outside of Edinburgh. We also have four fabulous venues that we use for our hen party craft and fascinator making workshops in Glasgow – the Corinthian Club, Blythswood Square, Hummingbird and the Butterfly and Pig Tearooms and are happy to travel to self catering venues in other Scottish destinations.

Packages can be taylor-made to make the class as simple or as extravagant as you like. The class can be themed to suit the hen party, we can adapt the class to make brooches or other accessories – it is really up to you! Discounts are offered for large groups, and for any booking for 12 more people, one person goes free!
