“In the town… in which Charlie lived, there was an ENORMOUS CHOCOLATE FACTORY! Just imagine that! And it wasn’t simply an ordinary enormous chocolate factory, either. It was the largest and most famous in the whole world!”

Create your very own fantasy sweets and chocolates in our summer workshops inspired by Roald Dahl.

Make your very own ceramic everlasting gobstopper, snozberry or chocolate river scene inspired by the famous Roald Dahl classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Learn how to roll clay and mould it into shape, as well as how to attach clay together using slip. Finish your piece with our colourful underglaze paints and leave it with us to be bisque and glaze fired, ready for collection.

Suitable For: Ages 5+
