Come and learn to make marzipan figurines like a real master!
Marzipan has a long and sweet history in Tallinn that goes back to the heyday of the Hanseatic League – like the German City of Lübeck, Tallinn is also well known for its marzipan. Whereas up until 17th century the sweet almond paste was considered a medicine and sold by the Town Hall Pharmacy – also the oldest constantly operating pharmacy in Europe, first mentioned in written sources in 1422. Nowadays it’s a popular treat that gives guests the opportunity to practice true craftsmanship.
In this workshop, you will learn about marzipan and its making and see how the real masters ply their craft. Even more, you’ll become a craftsman yourself, sculpting, colouring and painting your own small figurine. Besides being fun, it also tastes fantastic!
This workshop will take 60 – 120 minutes.
