5 reasons why a jewellery making workshop is the perfect idea for a creative alternative hen do

Are you looking for a classier alternative to the traditional hen do? Maybe you’re after a cool and quirky idea that will delight your hens? Read on to find out why a wax carving workshop could be the perfect laidback creative fun for your hen party.

My jewellery making classes focus on the ancient art of wax carving. It’s a beautifully relaxing and almost meditative technique that allows you to create pieces of jewellery with more volume and texture than when using sheet or wire. It’s ideal for making both flowing organic designs and angular geometric shapes. Best of all, it’s easy to do without the need for complicated tools and equipment. Once you get into the flow, I promise you’ll be hooked!

During a jewellery workshop, you’ll use wax and a rage of simple tools to create your own unique ring or pendant design which will then be cast in silver. For a small extra charge you can even choose to have your finished piece yellow or rose gold plated. The jewellery classes typically last 2-2.5 hours and it takes around 3 weeks to get your finished ring or pendant back and polished up then posted out to you in a pretty Fairtrade cotton pouch.

Sounds pretty good, hey?! If you need more convincing then here are my 5 reasons why a jewellery making class is a brilliant suggestion for those looking for alternative hen party ideas…

If you’re looking for an unusual hen party idea that’s special and memorable for both the bride to be and guests then a jewellery workshop is the perfect solution.

I’ll even provide a glass of prosecco (or non-alcoholic alternative) for you to enjoy as you make your jewellery to really get those creative juices flowing

2) It works brilliantly for a mix of ages
