Bored of pub quizzes on Zoom?! Us too.
With that in mind, we’ve given our bestselling activities and workshops a lockdown makeover, so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own home. Have a laugh with your pals AND do your bit to support small businesses….
MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWER CROWNS OR BOUQUET
Channel your inner Frida Kahlo with a floral crown workshop, or create a gorgeous hand tied bouquet to appreciate and enjoy during lockdown. It’s hosted by the lovely Amy, a small independent planner, stylist and florist who will hand deliver your kits prior to the party (within M25), and will ensure you have a lot of fun whilst learning the ropes on your Zoom workshop. Then you can either have a group shot in your gorgeous new crowns, or you can pop your bouquet in a vase and admired!
BAD GIRL COCKTAILS & QUIZ
Break the rules and let the bad girls hook you up! In this two hour virtual cocktail lesson, you’ll be taught how to make 4 of their signature cocktails alongside bad girl games and quizzes. With cocktail names like “Sippin Pretty”, “Boy Bye”, “Pop It Like It’s Hot” and “You Can’t Sip With Us”, who can resist?
If your bride-to-be loves to party, this is the option for you. Go all out “extra” on the dress code, and be warned – you might be stuck at home, but doesn’t mean you won’t end the night dancing on the table.
VIRTUAL COOKERY CLASS
Learn how to make a new exquisite dish step-by-step, whilst virtually hanging out with friends and getting your hands dirty! Will it be a katsu curry, butter chicken, Japanese gyozas, or handmade ravioli? Led by a professional chef, you’ll learn new culinary skills and have a gorgeous meal to enjoy afterwards.
Bring plenty of wine, and get settled in for a fun night of group cooking #quarantinemasterchef
BESPOKE RING WORKSHOP
Let Katie & Kirstie (two BFF London jewellers) guide you through the process of carving a wax ring cast to create your own bespoke solid silver ring. The first of its kind in the world, the kit is created for all abilities, to inspire creativity and allow you to make the ring you have always wanted, completely unique to you. You can also choose to create your ring in gold or rose gold vermeil.
The kit includes all you need for the virtual workshop, including 2 wax ring casts (a second wax to perfect your design), paper & pencil to sketch your ring design ideas, ring sizer, craft knife & thumb protector plus ring box. Once complete, you’ll send your wax ring cast back to the workshop (in a pre-paid envelope), so Katie & Kirstie can use your wax cast to create and polish the real thing! A super cool way to connect & create virtually, and a unique keepsake of your time spent in isolation!
THEMED DANCE CLASS
What better way to let loose and have a much needed laugh than some living room choreography with your pals?! Whether it’s Beyonce, Dirty Dancing, Disney or 90’s Pop, the list of themes is endless (as is the fun to be had). Held by a professional dance teacher, the one hour class will have you warming up to a medley of your fave tunes, followed by learning a choreographed piece (which makes for a GREAT video captured over Zoom). We can’t think of a better way to get a much needed lockdown uplift!
AT-HOME SCENTED CANDLE WORKSHOP
Could there be a better skill to learn during lockdown than how to make a scented candle?! During this online class you will join an expert candle maker, and as a team you will be guided through the candle making process. Prior to your workshop you will receive a candle kit containing all the core materials and equipment you’ll need to make your scented soy wax candle. You will also be able to choose your own botanical oil scent profile and custom candle label. Via Zoom, they’ll share hints and tips on creating candles from the comfort and safety of your home.
VIRTUAL COCKTAIL CLASS
Join expert bartender Steve from the comfort of your own home – and get a lovely view into his kitchen to shake, muddle and stir some amazing concoctions. There are plenty of themes to choose form (our fave is Sex & The City which includes the likes of Cosmo, Espresso Martini, Berry Martini, Breakfast Martini & Kamikaze).
The class is 1.5 hours long and will be focused on one particular spirit, with each “guest” making 4 cocktails each (no doubt a few more will be consumed post-class). You’ll be provided a list of ingredients to buy prior to the party and the and equipment you’ll need (all household items), and you’ll be able to use your new found skills to create perfect at-home cocktails again and again!
We’ve all seen the plethora of online yoga classes but this isn’t yoga….this is VOGA. Fusing wellbeing with party vibes, VOGA is the perfect at-home hen experience. Set to an iconic soundtrack of 80s diva classics, it combines the movement of yoga with the expressive moves of a dance class. The idea is to dress to express, so don your most fabulous gear and we’ll see you in the living room.
Yep that’s right…see a naked hunk in all his glory AND learn how to draw without leaving your living room. Arm yourselves with a drawing pad and (plenty of) prosecco, and prepare to unleash your inner artist. Through a series of fun exercises & effective tips from a professional artist you’ll learn a new skill centred around observing and recreating the human body in all its beauty (aubergine emoji).
