We offer several party packages including button and paper crafts and fabric printing classes, see more details below. If you fancy something a bit different, we could host a DIY wedding workshop where you can help out the bride and groom, learning how to make beautiful crafts to decorate the wedding venue including; tissue pom poms, pinwheels, paper flower bouquets, button table numbers… We’ll help you to design and make lovely pieces to give your wedding that personal touch.
Prices start from £35 per person for a minimum group size of 8 attendees. We offer discounts for larger groups. You’re welcome, of course, to bring your own bubbly!
Our hen classes are held at the lovely Jephson Studio or Episode Hotel in central Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. It is centrally located, with Warwick, Coventry, Kenilworth and Stratford-upon-Avon all within a 25 minute drive. We can also come to your own venue.
TISSUE PAPER POM POMS – £35/person
Learn how to make big and beautiful pom poms from tissue paper. These can be kept by each participant, or used for wedding decorations, photo backdrops! If you decide that the pom poms will be for the wedding, we recommend upgrading the workshop to include an individual craft, so that everyone has something to take home with them. Paper flower brooches is a popular choice.
FABRIC DÉCOUPAGE – £35/person
We are fabric magpies here at Makery Mill, and we have a beautiful selection of textile to use at this class. Select your base item – picture frame, box, pendant heart or letter, choose your favourite fabric(s), and get to work. This workshop is perfect for those who are looking for a mindful activity, to slow down and relax.
Our Hen Party guests have the additional option of making some decorations for the wedding – the heart pendants would look perfect at the top table, or on the end of aisles, and a MR & MRS (or MR & MR or MRS & MRS!) sign made from fabric decoupaged letters would not only look good on the day, but is a great keepsake for the couple too :)
