9 hens party ideas for arts and crafts lovers

1. Feel like a million dollars with heavenly fragrances

No wedding outfit is complete without a heavenly fragrance to match, so gather your friends for a sensational Sydney perfume making workshop. While the heady aromas of jasmine, bergamot and cedarwood permeate the air, you'll explore the ancient art of blending under the guidance of an experienced perfumer!

The informative session covers perfume’s history, the intricate connection between scents and emotions and layering methods for maximum longevity. There's ample opportunity to experiment with a treasure chest of ingredients and mix a heart-warming tincture that captures your most cherished memories. It's a classy hens party idea for the bride who likes to keep things elegant.

2. Study the ancient Japanese art of mending broken pottery

This beginner's Kintsugi workshop in Sydney encourages students to turn flaws and imperfections into stunning visual centrepieces.

Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of mending broken pottery using slivers of lacquer laced with gold, platinum and silver. Not only does it produce glittering criss-cross aesthetics but it's a powerful reminder that broken things are fixable.

Metaphorically, it teaches us an important lesson—in honouring our journey and healing old scars, we create something more unique, beautiful and resilient. What better message to impart to the bride-to-be at her hens celebration before she embarks on the challenging and rewarding journey of marriage?

3. Level up wedding invitations with modern calligraphy

If you're looking for fun things to do in Melbourne, how about a modern calligraphy class? Wedding invitations are much more meaningful when adorned in an elegant cursive script. Calligraphy classes make for hens party ideas that are both practical and fun.

Whimsical wordsmiths release their poetic side by practising brush lettering alongside an expert. The teacher runs through basic strokes for lower and upper-case letters, writing with a pointed pen and how to prepare and care for nibs. Explore a range of styles to find your individuality!

4. Make dazzling floral bridal accessories

Picture this—floating down the aisle wearing an exquisite floral halo, delicate carnations complimenting tousled curls or traditional up-dos. Luckily, you can turn these musings into reality with a Brisbane DIY flower crown making workshop.

During the three-hour session, you'll condition, arrange and wire flowers over a delicious grazing box and glass of bubbles to complete the hens party. Foliage is seasonal to keep up with the latest wedding trends, and there's a wealth of fancy embellishments to make accessories fit for brides and bridesmaids! Perfect if you’re searching for creative things to do in Brisbane.

5. Design a gorgeous boho wall hanging for interiors

Australia is home to all things boho, drawing from the abundance of surf, sea and sand. To honour the country's untameable roots, why not try a macrame class in Melbourne? For an Australian hens party idea that is as laidback and down to earth as the Australian bride.

Macrame is a hand-crafting technique that uses knots to form spectacular shapes and patterns. In this class, you'll weave coarse materials like jute, twine and yarn into a stunning wall hanging that'll turn houseguests green with envy.

Unsurprisingly, twisting fabric is thirsty work. Feel free to bring a bottle of your favourite drink to sip while you socialise and put nimble fingers to the test! It’s simply one of the best things to do in Melbourne.

6. Paint and sip a stunning masterpiece
