Spend half a day learning how to create fantastic finishes with icing, create adorable figurines out of sugar paste amongst many other valuable tips and tricks needed to decorate that cake you always wanted.

The writing is on the wall, creativity is contagious and Tea & Crafting is certainly doing everything to pass on the bug!

Tea & Crafting is a group of friendly artists who are partial to a bit of old-fashioned craftsmanship with a modern twist. If your undiscovered creative side is simply yarn-ing (😜 ) to get out, then join one of its craft workshops where crafty souls can congregate to do just that.

Expect to learn new skills, show off creations and have a lot of fun!

Work in friendly, small groups then throw in some top-notch guidance and a nice cup of tea, and you have got a Tea & Crafting classic. You’ll learn all the basics and leave with some goodies that you’ve made too.
