Chocolate Artistry and Barista experience day

Sun, Apr 3, 2016 at 10:30 AM - Brighton, United Kingdom

Love chocolate, coffee and being creative?? Why not bring these three passions together and come to Brighton for the day to have a blast at being a chocolatier and a barista (coffee brewer).

Learn how to dip and decorate chocolates, adorn a miniature celebration cake, hand sculpt a pure chocolate rose and make a darn fine cup of coffee.

 It's Sunday, so it feels quite fitting to come to this intriguing Church in the heart of the North Laines for 7 hours of caffeine and chocolate fuelled creativity and grown up messy play.

Start the day with a chocolatey chat about how to melt and manage chocolate and then watch and learn from head chocolatician Jen Lindsey-Clark,  maker of the Chocobatch .

Jen will teach you some crafty tricks and techniques to impress all your friends. You will dip chocolates, decorate them using a variety of exciting methods including transfers, texture sheets and hand painting with cocoa butter. You will learn how to make Jen's secret trademark pure chocolate roses and other chocolate sculpting magic.

Here are some of the beauties you could make during the day

Once suitably hungry for savoury and a sit down, lunch at one of the Laines proper locals pubs and then back on it with One Church's very own Coffee Doctor Super Barista Caffiene Geek...Ben Szobody.

 Ben will perk you up with his texan twist on all things coffee and using One Church's very special Small Batch single origin fresh beans he will demonstrate the perfect expresso or caffee latte which ever floats your beverage boat. 

Now your mind is buzzing and your body is ready to create you will be given the opportunity to each use the decorations and chocolates you make to finish a miniature celebration cake, ready baked and glazed by Jen from the She Bakes kitchen.   

This will be yours to take home, along with prettily packaged bitesize creations at the end of the afternoon, making a perfect present for a loved one or a chocapocalypitical end to your day as you devour it all on the train and drift off into a sugar fuelled coma. 

Job well done.
