Tastes of Sailortown – Free Cookery Workshops for Adults

Do you live in or near Sailortown and would you like to take part in two free evening cooking workshops at the Mission to Seafarers on the 8th and 15th of May (6-7pm)? You will learn about local ingredients, Sailortown’s flavours of the past and present, food preparation, and begin to create a signature dish.

Inspired by the flavourful stories told by Sailortown’s former residents and by what current residents want to eat, artist Thomas Wells has developed the Tastes of Sailortown, a series of workshops for participants of all ages. He has been working with young people at Clanmil Housing Association and together with food educator Clare McQuillan will deliver two free workshops in May for adults exploring food preparation and knowledge. Through the adult and children’s workshops, a ‘signature dish for Sailortown’ will be developed.

Get in touch with us at to book a place on the adult workshops, as places are limited. All materials will be provided and refreshments will be served.
