Christmas is all about creating those special memories. And this year, My John Lewis members can discover new ways to connect with loved ones with these wonderful activities. From fun creative activities with take-home gifts to wine tasting and mixology sessions with delicious complimentary gifts, there’s a workshop for every occasion. They’re excellent value too!
Indulge in some wine tasting
This Christmas, Riedel and Waitrose Wine are hosting a tasting session that’ll help you elevate your wine-drinking experiences. During this unique sensory workshop, guests will gain an appreciation of the finer details of the wine world. From the importance of your choice of glass to the aromas of each grape, you’ll be a connoisseur in no time! Plus, you’ll get to sample three delicious glasses of wine whilst you learn. This workshop takes place on December 15 and tickets are £15. Reserve your space here.
Learn how to create the perfect festive table setting
So much of creating that magical Christmas atmosphere lies in the decor. And these John Lewis table setting workshops with either Denby Pottery or Talking Tables are an excellent place to start. In these masterclasses, John Lewis Home Design Stylists and experts from Denby Pottery or Talking Tables will help you select the best table cloth and tableware. Then you’ll add that special personal touch with some hand-picked decorations. You’ll even get a complimentary festive drink, a free gift and a £5 redeemable voucher. This can be used to purchase your favourite product from the talk!
Take a mixology masterclass with Fever-Tree
What better way to dream up the ultimate Christmas drinks menu than with a Fever-Tree Masterclass? From crisp gin and tonics to a fragrant rum and whisky ginger highball – you’ll learn to mix the perfect serve for every occasion. Right down to the garnish! And you’ll enjoy four delectable mixed drinks throughout the session. This workshop is taking place on December 17 at 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and tickets are £15. Reserve your space here.
Shake up some classic cocktails with Kocktail
With festive parties a-plenty filling up the diary, there’s no better time to take a cocktail masterclass. And there’s no team better than Kocktail to show you how it’s done – it’s created by the former senior bartender at the Savoy Hotel. Here you’ll learn the history behind everyone’s favourite cocktails, as well as the importance of ice, garnishes and glassware. But most importantly, you’ll get to try two irresistible cocktails while you witness the mixology mastery. This workshop is taking place at John Lewis Bluewater on December 16 and tickets are £10. Book your space here.
Create your own Christmas jumper with Cricut
Breathe new life into your love-worn jumpers at the Christmas Jumper workshop with Cricut. After being given a demo on the Cricut cutting machine and heat press, you’ll be free to work your magic. Personalise your garment with coloured, sparkly and holographic iron-on vinyls, or add a loved-ones name for the perfect gift. All you have to do is bring an old plain sweater, enjoy your complimentary welcome drink and get started! Tickets to this workshop are £8. Book your space here.
And if you can’t make it to the store, there are plenty of brilliant online workshops to get involved with.
