For over a decade, we have been bringing our knowledge of Estonian national sweets to kindergartens and schools across the country, particularly during the beginning and end of the school year. Our marzipan workshops are met with enthusiasm from children who learn about this unique and fun treat that can be molded, painted, and eaten. It’s not often that you get to indulge in a treat that you’ve created yourself, so the opportunity to do so with marzipan is truly something to cherish.
Our master classes can take place outside of our gallery walls, bringing the magical atmosphere closer to you. We provide the same equipment for off-site classes as we do in the gallery. After creating your marzipan figures, we will pack them in boxes for you to take home. If the necessary equipment is available, we can also show an educational film about the history of marzipan.

Our class can be tailored to coincide with one of the holidays during the school year, such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, Friendship Day, or Easter. This way, the children can create a themed figurine and pack it in a box as a gift for their friends or family members.
