Sculpting

The Marzipan Gallery in Old Tallinn is the place where you can try your hand in modelling and painting marzipan figurines. A great source of enjoyment and a useful exercise for developing dexterity, this activity is popular with children and adult visitors of the Marzipan Gallery alike.

A marzipan modelling and painting workshop (making a figurine from marzipan paste) can be booked separately or as a part of the Gallery excursion for a group of visitors.

We offer the types of modelling workshops described below:

1. General modelling session: the gallery employee provides general guidance, paying equal attention to all the participants of the marzipan modelling session. Each participant can choose a figurine to make.

Session duration: 30 minutes.

Session price: 4 euros per person.

The price includes:

- 40 grams of marzipan for modelling;

- making and painting a figurine under the general guidance of a gallery employee;

- a plastic box to pack the figurine.

Unlike other types of marzipan modelling and group excursions, a certain general session time for one person cannot be booked, so visitors can participate in modelling and painting provided that there are seats available at the table on the 1st floor of the Gallery

2. Individual modelling session: the Gallery employee tutors one visitor personally, providing step-by-step guidance during the whole session.

The theme of the session, i.e. which figurine the visitor is going to make, is chosen when the time of session is booked, at least 3 days in advance.

Session duration: 30 minutes.

Session price: 10 euros per person.

The price includes:

- 40 grams of marzipan for modelling;

3. Workshop: the Gallery employee structures the session according to a previously developed workshop plan, and all the participants accurately follow his or her guidelines and make the same figurines. The theme of the workshop is set by the Gallery employee when the workshop is booked, and the participants’ preferences will be taken into consideration if possible.

Group size: 5 to 10 participants.

Workshop duration: 30 minutes.

Workshop price: 5 euros per person.

Upon the visitors’ request, a “prizes-for-all” lottery draw of marzipan prizes at the price of 2.00 euro can be organised. Tea or coffee with marzipan sweets are also available for a separate fee. Besides, you can purchase a large variety of marzipan products in our shop.
