I was so smitten with the Kirsty's Christmas Alice band that I made one for myself and thought that they would make the funkiest Hen Headresses . So as my Granny always said "If you want to get ahead get a hat!" You'll make a cool entrance flocking in like Carmen Miranda in your pompom, flower decked crowns - they look delicious enough to eat.I can suggest various venues in Westport or I can come to you with all the materials for you to create your own head dress ,sipping wine,bubble s,cocktails and glittering your faces.

'I felt thoroughly spoilt and inspired when I left. Time flew and I can't remember when I last laughed feeling so relaxed.'
'I didn't know anyone and don't consider myself particularly creative. Nicky was so relaxed and welcoming, I met some lovely new friends and was really very proud of what I created. Lots of people commented on my Easter Tree when I got home.'
'I'm definitely coming back and staying locally next time to make a weekend of it. I learned so much.'
'I was amazed that everything was included - our lunch was lovely and all hand prepared in front of us - so I felt like I was picking up cookery tips too. A really wonderful day and right on my doorstep.'
'Nicky had gone to so much trouble for the course, everything was prepared in advance and she gave us her undivided attention for the whole of the day. It was friendly, easygoing and relaxing and I was thrilled with the results!'
On a gorgeous spring morning a group of ladies arrived to make these fabulous Easter Trees. While they enjoyed home made pastries and coffee, I demonstrated the techniques and then we went out into my garden to collect the branches. We made our own leaves and wired them on to the branches, and painted eggs. After lunch and a little glass of bubbles, we continued with our egg decorating and finished off our sensational show pieces! Can't wait for the next workshop!
