Talks and Demonstrations
I am available to offer talks, demonstrations and hands-on workshops to groups, public events or ehibition features. They can be tailored to your requirements both in content and duration. I really prefer some audience participation and welcome the opportunity for your guests to 'make and take'. All necessary equipment and ingredients can be provided and facilities can be quite basic - we are used to producing jam in marquees in fields with no running water! Fees are modest and expenses kept to a minimum.
Corporate Events & Teambuilding
Jam and preserve making is perfect for a Team Building event. It can be built into a whole day or weekend programme or as a stand alone challenge. Our workshops are suitable for all comers - all levels, ages, men or women alike. It offers a different approach to most bonding formats which are usually about speed and competition. Preserve making is all about patience, listening skills and de-stressing.
We have various packages available from tiny, niche days at The Old Smithy in Rutland, to large groups in a stateley home with local add on opportunities to expand the programme up to 2/3 days.
Contact The Old Smithy office to discuss your requiremnets and we will tailor make an event to suit both diary and budget
