Creative Celts

Creative or arty groups are really hitting their stride, providing a great way for hens to have fun and make memories as well as taking a keepsake home with them as a souvenir of the day. Both cheeky and classy, life drawing is increasingly popular with hens. Whether you want to develop your artistic talents or check out the model, hens with a sense of humour will have a great time from Picasso himself to hens who've never picked up a paintbrush! If you don't mind getting your hands a little messy, pottery painting might be for your group. It's a nice, hands-on yet leisurely activity that gives you all a chance to sit down and catch up, ideal for hens who'd like to include a bit of downtime in the weekend. If, however, you plan to be on your feet and on the go the entire time, why not look into paintball? It's fun, it's fast-paced, and you'll certainly feel splattered like a canvas when you're done.
