Learn the dying art of making pasta entirely by hand and enjoy a truly unique experience!
Under the expert guidance of Silvana, a professional artisan pasta maker from Napoli, you will learn all there is to know about gluten-free pasta, and will create some of the most unusual and beautiful pasta shapes, traditional in Italy but virtually unknown in UK.
Each month there is a new pasta to learn, new flours and flavours to explore, so you can come over and over again to refine your skills and enjoy a relaxing and fun afternoon with friends, old or made on the day!
In the real Italian spirit, you will eat together with all the other guests, bonding over the delicious food you have made.
Suitable to anyone, you do not need to have made pasta before.
