We are able to offer most chocolate making activities with dairy free and gluten free ingredients as long as we know in advance. If you have an individual with a nut allergy we have to say that the environment can not be guaranteed as nut free, we do however limit the presence of nuts in our workshop as much as possible, we are also able to provide new and sterile equipment for individuals with highly sensitive nut allergies. Please ask individuals or the parent or guardian of an attendee to contact us at least 48 hours ahead of the workshop so we can discuss with them how best to cater for their needs and ensure they can take part fully and enjoy the results of all their hard work.
