A unique  Valentine’s, Easter or Birthday gift using Papier-Mache and Sweet-making  techniques.  

Everyone can make papier mache and you will use this ancient craft to make a unique Valentine’s gift, or other individualised bowl.  You will then make chocolate truffles or sugar-free delicacies to fill your special bowl. The course will include short demonstrations to the group.


You will learn how to make bowls from strips of paper and from pre-made mashed paper. (Full instructions will be given on how to make this, but due to time constraints, it won’t be made at the workshop).  Various decorating techniques will be used in the afternoon.  The emphasis will be on experimenting with a variety of ideas.  A range of work and pictures will be available as inspiration and sparks to inspire individual creativity.


Whilst your bowl is drying you will see a demonstration of how to make chocolate truffles and can then add your own choice of flavours and fashion the truffles to make a unique gift.

An alternative choice is to make sugar-free treats based on dried fruit, nuts and seeds.


This course is suitable for complete beginners and those with prior experience.


This half day course includes a welcome coffee/tea with delicious home baking.


All equipment, materials and instructions are provided.

The course will take place at our home in Much Birch, Herefordshire, in our purpose-built studio  or the local village hall. Reductions for group bookings of 5 or more on same course.
