What's the Story, Crown and Glory?

Before we popped off on holidays last week, I was delighted to take the trip to Bath to host our first ever Crown and Glory Workshop! Of course, we couldn't think of a finer occasion for our first ever crafting event than the gorgeous Megan's hen do - in a short space of time, Megan has turned from customer to a very dear friend and continually supports everything we do at Crown and Glory, so when she was looking for something fun and appropriate for all the female members of her wedding party to participate in and break the ice during the afternoon of her hen-do, I tentatively suggested that I'd be more than willing to host a Crown and Glory Workshop for her.

We decided it might be fun to theme the workshop around her wedding colours - pastels blues, greens, yellows and pinks - which gave me inspiration for the piles and piles of crafting materials and allowed the hens to create something they could consider to wear on the big day itself. We sat the party, 10 in total, in groups of 3 at a time so it gave everyone a chance to have one to one tutoring with their design! Even the least crafty-fingered of the group got stuck right in and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, coming back for more - some even made 3 pieces to take home! We even included little Crown and Glory goodie bags for the girls to take their pieces home in.

I was absolutely overwhelmed with the response from the hens that we've decided to roll this out as a package available to all! It's still very early days but there will be package options available - such as vintage tea party theme, glitter theme, festival theme to name a few - or we can tailor the package and materials to suit your wedding theme. Group numbers are a minimum of 10, and at £20 a head this will include all materials for up to 3 headpieces per person, equipment usage, one to one tutoring from myself, and a bespoke Crown and Glory goodiebag to stash your new creations in.


Think you might like us to host a Crown and Glory Workshop for your hen, birthday or bah mitzvah? Get in touch by emailing us at and we'll chat crafting, my favourite kind of chat there is!
