Chocolate Workshops are the heart and soul of The Cocoabean Company.
Become a chocolatier in this 35 – 45 minute interactive experience, where you will make and decorate three chocolatey creations that are yours to keep, all assisted by our fantastic workshop team.
The standard version of the workshop is suitable for children aged 3 and above (approx.) but every child is different so this is only a guide.

There is something for everyone!
Due to the current circumstances relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, our workshops may run slightly differently from what you’ve experienced before. We are also updating our workshop structures and rules regularly to keep in line with the most up to date government guidance so things may change from one visit to the next. Please see below for the current workshop options.
(Age 2 – 5 approx.)
As staff currently need to keep a safe distance, we ask that all children under the age of 6 (as a guide) and all children that require additional support be accompanied by an adult throughout their workshop. The accompanying adult will not be charged but will be required to wear a face covering.
(Age 6 – 11)
This is our standard chocolate workshop. There is no physical distancing in place during this session as it no longer applies for children in this age bracket.
Adults are not permitted and neither are children aged 12 and above.
(Adults & Age 12 +)
This workshop is designed for adults and children & teens, aged 12 and above.
Physical distancing measures are enforced throughout the session. Face coverings are not required.
(No age restrictions!)
Who says children get to have all the fun? Bring the whole family together to take part in the chocolate making fun!
Every person taking part must purchase their own ticket and your group will be allocated their own table in the workshop that will be physically distanced from any other groups.
In order for us to make your visit as safe as possible, all workshops must be booked in advance.
