I am passionate about all things wedding, craft in all shapes and sizes and a lover of a chunky knit jumper and statement earring. With nearly a decade of design and events experience behind me, and more recently working as a Design and Technology teacher in a secondary school. I am fully qualified for all things planning and party-based.

Therefore if you’re planning a hen party, baby shower or craft party. Then Hunter Gatherings is here to help.

Hunter Gatherings offers a range of creative craft workshops that can be tailored to your theme and special occasion. I offer hen parties, baby showers and birthday parties for both adults and children.

We completed Flower Crown making with Fran as our hen party activity. There was a great selection of flowers and it was enjoyed by all ages. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a hen party activity! Fran was very accommodating and brilliant to deal with.

Our hen party yesterday enjoyed Fran's knicker sewing workshop. There was a wide variety of materials to choose from and Fran was happy to assist everyone individually to develop ideas and advise on techniques to apply them. She was accommodating to the party in general, by pouring drinks and joining in with conversation. By having the event at the Bride to be home everyone felt at ease and enjoyed the session. All round a great experience

We loved our Pennant flag making class with Fran! We were a small hen party of 5 people and we were so impressed with the amount of materials available, the knowledge of the teacher and the communication beforehand was nothing short of excellent. Thank you so much, Fran, for such a lovely experience. We would book again!

We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher to do our flower crown workshop. Fran was the perfect mix of professional, friendly and knowledgeable and made our hen party so much fun. She brought a fabulous choice of flowers and explained everything step by step. She was on hand to help those who needed it and gave advice on how best to create our crowns. She gave us some gorgeous straws with our names on and some sweets to nibble on whilst we worked - these went down really well with everyone and added to an already lovely experience. She offered to take photos of us wearing our crowns at the end - memories we’ll keep forever.

Fran was so lovely! We were running behind schedule and she was really laid back about it. The whole setup was gorgeous and she even included extras like personalized straws and sweets which was a lovely touch. We had such a good time and the flower crowns all looked beautiful. Highly recommend

We had Fran over for a hen do flower crown workshop. Fran was lovely and brought plenty of flowers/materials to choose from. The setup was gorgeous, felt very personal and she was very hands on in helping us. The bride loved it and this made for a very memorable activity!
