Bread making workshop for children (6+)

10.30-11.30am Saturday 27 April

Do you remember learning to bake bread as a child? The nostalgia of the delightful scent of baking dough and your own little loaves and rolls rising in the oven, ready for an afternoon picnic in the garden…

Now your children have the opportunity to learn bread making skills of their own with this fun workshop at Willow Bough, Wimbledon’s traditional tea room. Each child will make and knead their own dough and leave with either a loaf or four rolls of their own making.

Clare is DBS checked so children can be left for the workshop or parents are welcome to stay and enjoy our cosy tea room while you wait. Suitable for ages 6+.

£15 per child. Booking essential.
