All of our prices include materials, hair/make up products (if applicable) and of course our specialist team of staff! The price depends predominantly on the number of hens in your party. If you would prefer not to come to our Exmouth Market workshop or you have your own venue arranged then we are happy to travel to anywhere within London.


Here are the Hen Party options to choose from, however if you have your own ideas for a craft and/or vintage based Hen Party we would be happy to consider them!
