Mums' Chocolate and Champange Workshop in BirminghamChocolate and Champagne Workshops for Mums in Birmingham anyone?

Chocolate Collective recently ran a special Valentine's Express Chocolate Making Workshop with Champagne for the Mums' Club in Altrincham, Cheshire. The event was held at a beautiful local venue and was a huge success, with the Valentine's themed evening being well received my all the mums who took part.

We would be delighted to do the same sort of thing for Mums in Birmingham, giving you some wonderful "me time" with friends. There's no need to wait until next Valentine's Day either, as we can build our chocolate making workshops around any theme you like, or just make it an excuse for a chocolate and champagne treat!

We had Louise from Chocolate Collective for one of our events that are focused around Mums. From the moment Louise arrived she was brilliant. Very organised, very friendly and a brilliant instructor. It was the ideal night off for mums to indulge in a little bit of 'me time' with chocolate truffle making and champagne. We can not recommend Louise enough and will look to use her skills again in the near future.

Men can make chocolate in Birmingham too!

Chocolate Collective was approached to run a chocolate making session for a large corporate company. The company was holding an all-day conference at a central hotel in Leeds City centre and their event manager was looking for an hour or so's activity to avoid the team hitting the bars too early!

Chocolate making was something the group hadn't done before and the Express chocolate workshop, where each person makes 15-20 truffles using Belgian dark chocolate for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours seemed to fit in perfectly with the day's schedule. It was a big surprise though when 32 chaps arrived for the workshop! All had great fun, enjoyed making their chocolates and did enjoy a beer or two whilst making them.

Men can make chocolates in Birmingham too

The Express chocolate workshops in Birmingham are perfect for any group of people, be it hen parties, stags do's, birthday celebrations, mums' groups, dad's groups or family groups and are suitable for men and women of all ages.

Chocolate and Home Education in Birmingham

Though education is compulsory in the UK for ages 5-16, school is not. Many families choose to educate their children in other ways than through a school and it is their right to do so. Home educated families do not have to follow the National Curriculum and there is no "right" way to educate a child at home.

Both Manchester and Leeds home educated groups have enjoyed sessions run by Chocolate Collective and we are now offering chocolate learning / chocolate making in Birmingham. The groups make varying chocolate goodies (depending upon age): from lollipops to piping, to making individual chocolates and truffles. The children also learnt about the history of chocolate, where chocolate is obtained from and the chocolate making process.

Everyone had an enjoyable time including adults, children and myself.

Chocolate Collective can tailor our chocolate workshops to your special needs, so if you are looking for something different as part of the home education of your children in the Birmingham area, please get in touch to find out more.

Here's a testimonial from one of our Leeds Deluxe Chocolate Workshops:

Chocolate workshops surpass expectations!

Hi Louise - just to say how much Stuart (birthday boy!) and I enjoyed your chocolate workshop yesterday afternoon in Leeds. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting but the experience certainly surpassed my expectations! I dread to think how many extra calories I consumed whilst participating but secretly loved every one of them!
We shall certainly recommend you and your workshops. Once again many thanks for our lovely initiation into the art of truffle making!
Regards, Patty and Stuart, Hull
