DIY - Create your own "Schultüte"

Thu Nov 12, 17:30 - Sun Jan 17, 12:00
Radisson Red Hotel V&A


Schultüte ("school cone"), also known as a Zuckertüte ("sugar cone") in some parts of Germany, is a cone-shaped container made of paper, cardboard, or plastic.

When children in Germany set off for their first day of school upon entering first grade, their parents and/or grandparents present them with this large cone, attractively decorated and filled with toys, chocolate, candies/sweets, school supplies, and various other special treats. The cone is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little sweeter.

In order to continue with this tradition, this workshop is aimed for all parents whose kids will be joining the Deutsche International Schule Kapstadt (DSK) in 2021 to create their very unique Schultüte for their kids.

We will start off with a glass of bubbly and some snacks and move over to the creation of the Schultüte. Please DON'T bring your children as it is supposed to be an evening where YOU as a parent can meet&mingle.

We will be working with hot glue guns and will not be held liable for any damages or injuries to any child (or person) or clothes. The price includes all other materials like felt, leather, paper, glue etc.

As we need to prepare a few things, please book your desired motive. Should it be sold out for the desired date, please check any of our other times.

Should you still need the cone, please book this as an additional merchandise item.

The venue: Radisson Red Hotel at the V&A - Experience love at first sight and get into the mood for a vibrant, creative evening.
