Hens’ Parties and Activities

Looking for unique hens’ parties or day activities that aren’t the regular stripper show or boozy cruise? We can help you plan a special class for the bride-to-be, or arrange a whole day of activities in our space in the CBD or your selected venue. Make gorgeous headpieces before setting off for lunch, learn a Bollywood or burlesque choreography so you can kill it on the dance floor later in the night, or create polymer clay accessories to remember the special day. Our hens’ parties will definitely be different, creative and memorable!

How it all works

Our fun, casual classes are all one-off workshops and last around 75 minutes, which works great if you are planning a whole day or evening of activities. After you have confirmed the details and selected your class, please use the booking form below and we’ll send you an invoice for payment of the deposit. If you would like a different class to those listed below, please email us and we’ll let you know if it’s available.
