What is it

This is a hands-on, marmalade-making masterclass with naked jam founder Jennifer Williams.

Learn how to make both traditional and funky marmalades with a world-champion marmalade maker. Treat yourself to a new skill or buy somebody you love a brilliant gift they will remember and use forever.

Learn to make marmalade the traditional way, in Jennifer's New Forest, country kitchen classroom. It's a small, intimate class with accent on fun as well as education.

A former World-champion, Jennifer Williams (Jen to her friends) is without doubt, among the global elite of jam makers. On this training course, she will share some of her much-coveted, marmalade-making secrets with you - including how she made the world-championship-wining marmalade in 2018.

Not only will you be able to surprise your friends and family marmalade masterpieces of your own, you'll never be short of a charming gift idea for those you care for again.

On this course you will make two marmalades and a lemon curd and leave the workshop with 20-25 jars of some of best food you have ever made.
