On Saturday we headed to the beautiful village of Charmouth on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset to run a craft hen party for 10 creative hens! The bride to be loves everything handmade, so a crafty hen party with us was the perfect choice! All of the hen party were in lovely onsies, and were such a fun group, I didn't ever want to leave!
The barn where we held the ceramic painting workshop was picturesque! All of the hens enjoyed getting creative looking out over the rolling hills of Dorset. This is what the hen party had to say about their craft hen party experience...
"The girls, especially the main hen, positively enjoyed being creative although the time went so fast. We were all so very pleased with our final results and would most definitely organise another crafty date with you. Just want to say thank you so much for making the experience so much fun, we all had a fabulous time and was good value as well. Thanks again Katie from all the hens!" - Beverly
'How has craft altered over the last century and where are we now?'
The Industrial Revolution in the early 19th century modernised production with the introduction of machines. The ability to manufacture on a large scale meant individual crafts people were spun into this web of machine operation. What they were producing was no longer bespoke, every item on the mass production belt looked exactly the same. Although the process was profitable, the joy of producing and the appreciation of unique designs were cast aside.
