An update on workshops

Following on from lots of feedback we are now offering workshops for families. We are really excited to be running these as it is something we have been trying to set up for a while.

This workshop is a fun filled workshop for both adults and children and is aimed at families. Ideal for parents and children or grandparents and grandchildren to have a great experience making chocolate together. This lasts approx 1 ½ hours and allows the participants to learn a bit about chocolate making and then have a go at making a few items like lollies / bars themselves.

The workshops will be held at Claremont Kitchen so families can enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Farm Shop Cafe before or after the workshop.

We are also still running the dabble and creative chocolate making workshops as follows:

Dabble Workshop

This two hour chocolate making workshop begins with a talk about how chocolate makes it from the bean to the bar, followed by a practical session where we demonstrate various techniques before giving you the chance to create your own masterpieces. Following a chocolate quiz, everybody gets the chance to hand-wrap their creations to take home. The price includes a hot chocolate drink.

Creative Workshop

The three hour chocolate workshop begins with information on the history of chocolate and then the pleasurable task of a guided chocolate tasting. You will then create truffle fillings, dip your truffles in Belgian chocolate and design and decorate your toppings. All attendees then take home their creations of fine genuine Belgian chocolates all wrapped, designed and made by you. The price includes a hot chocolate drink.

Our workshops are popular for corporate events, birthday parties, hen /stag parties and special individual treats.

We can run corporate team building workshops as well as workshops for school groups. Please contact us for further information.
