Workshops at Orana


We are very excited to be offering two hands-on cheese making workshops, in conjunction with fantastic artisan cheese makers YesCheese! The workshops will take place in our fabulous Home Economics / Kitchen facility on Saturday 22 August. Our workshops are hands-on, as we believe that the best way to learn is by doing. There are two workshops available - come along to just one, or take the day and do both!

Express Cheese Workshop:
At the conclusion of the class, students will take home marinated labne, a cream cheese ball, a mascarpone dessert and a set of comprehensive, easy-to-follow notes. The workshop runs from 10am - 11.30am.

Haloumi and Mozzarella Workshop:
This workshop includes home made cheese tastings and a cheese-based dessert and runs from 1pm - 5pm.
At the conclusion of the class students will take home their own home made Haloumi, Bocconcini Mozzarella, Lemon Cheese and a set of comprehensive, easy-to-follow notes.

Numbers are strictly limited - follow the links above and secure your place now!

Beginners' Blacksmithing Workshop
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at the traditional art of Blacksmithing? Well here is your chance! 

We are very excited to present a one-day Beginners' Blacksmithing Workshop, with expert tuition by Elliott Franklin-Brown from the Rutledge St Forge. During this workshop you will learn about different forge design, hammering techniques, tongs and tools, as well as a variety of blacksmithing skills including drawing steel into a taper, fullering, slitting and twisting steel.
By the end of the day participants will have made several S-hooks, leaf hooks and - if time permits - a pot rack or hanging rack.

Numbers are strictly limited to just 8 students so don't delay - book your ticket now! (Tickets on sale from 9am Monday 3 August)
