Bristol creative Jess Knights likes to keep her workshops informal and relaxed - so feel free to grab a drink of your choice and get comfy. After all, this is an opportunity to socialise too!

  • Make a lovely A3 paper cut illustration for your wall

From the Amalfi lemon tart zinging with citrus and summer, to mouthwatering confit turnips for those cosy winter nights in, Jess' illustrations celebrate this venue's incredible seasonal menu.

For the ultimate experience, work up an appetite with Jess creating your own seasonal veg masterpieces then book yourself in for a delicious meal after - now that's what we call food for thought!
