Bring your kids to our May Half Term Pasta Making workshop just for little hands. The class will kick off with some fun facts about the origins of pasta. Then your Pasta tutor will explain what ingredients are used, where they come from, where to get the best ingredients from and why to use those specific ingredients. The workshop is entirely practical and hands-on.
After a demonstration of how to make the dough, each child will make his/her own pasta. Your child can choose from different shapes of pasta: tortellini, scialatielli, spaghetti, colourful pasta, tagliatelle (cut pasta) and ravioli (filled pasta). The ravioli is particularly fun as kids can create wonderfully shaped flowers and stars shaped pasta. Our pasta will also be all the colours of the rainbow your child can pick his/her colour.  Colourful pasta is fun and healthy made with the best seasonal produce from farmers in England. After all the hard work, each child gets to take the pasta home. 

Suitable for ages 3+ accompanied by an adult. Each person attending must have a purchased ticket. Children 6 years + do not need an adult present. Our tutor is DBS checked.  If you are an adult + child attending enter "pastafortwo" at checkout for £10 off.
