Secrets from the Sweetshop
Last week we saw another new evening event go by with plenty of laughter and yummy noises!
'Come and learn the history of Yorkshire's confectionery story with Sophie Jewett from the celebrated York Cocoa House. Explore the route of the confectioner dating back to the early arrival of sugar and cocoa into the wealthy kitchen. Then get hands on making your own medicinal sweets, chocolate drops and more!'
Tonight we see 'From Tree to Bowl'
An evening demonstration of wet turning by well known wood turner Philip Greenwood. Come and watch a natural edge bowl being turned from wet wood; learn how to care for your wood, keeping your timber and converting it at home.
Come and learn from the expert- Philip is on the register of professional turners, demonstrator, tutor and writer for worldwide publication ‘Woodturning’ magazine.
