Craft Workshop

Planning a hen do for someone who is crafty or loves shoes? Or simply wants to do something different? Well, our craft workshop will tick all those boxes, and earn you as party organiser extra brownie points too!  Suitable for all ages from 14 years upwards.

Fun, Creative and Free-Spirited

Our workshop is all about having fun!  Pop on your party frocks and rock your afternoon. The room is private to your friends so you can party as much as you like. If you partied the night before, and want something chilled out, we are good for that too!  You can dress up or dress down and enjoy the workshop how you want it to be.


Shoe Party

Creative Hen Do / Birthday Group


What our hens are saying

What an amazing day we had! We were quite a large group (19 in total) made up of 14 year olds to 50 year olds and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Tutors Nicky and Sally were really great fun and very professional. The day was structured and the embellishing is really addictive! Even if you are not "crafty" its easy and fun to try out! Thanks so much Nicky! Our shoes, bags and bridesmaids T-Shirts look amazing! :).

Hen Do's and Birthdays

Decorate your plain shoes and wear them at the wedding! Or your birthday night out!  We will show you how to make gorgeous crystal shoes and bags that you will be proud to show off to your friends.

It's our mission to provide a craft workshop that leaves you with happy memories. The workshop is taught by Nicky Rox who loves talking about shoes so if you have a shoe fan in your group you can talk shoes all day!

What our birthday girls are saying

We had a fantastic time at the shoe decorating workshop. I am so pleased with my shoes and I know that the rest of the party were too! We decorated a mixture of shoes and bags and the results were brilliant. Nicky explains everything really well and it was easy to understand the different methods. I would highly recommend Nicky for any girly celebration :).

Work at your own pace

Once the introduction is complete and the workshop is underway you are free to enjoy the activity at your own pace.  If you want to break away from the room and go to the on-site bar or outside for a breather you can.  Or you can stay and add zillions of crystals to your shoes.  The workshop encourages people to be at ease.  We will keep an eye on the clock to make sure you complete in time.  We will always look out for you and are used to teaching groups of all sizes.
