Join us in the Enchanted Kitchen at Makers Landing this summer holiday for a magical kitchen experience.

The Makers Landing Mini Makers food education programme is aimed for kids 5 – 11 years old and teens 12- 16 years old .

Every day, we cover a new and exciting topic, and we teach the kids to make one savoury and one sweet item to take home with them or enjoy for lunch.
