Roll up your sleeves, dust off your rolling pin and join Manchester Jewish Museum in making hamantaschen.

Hamantaschen are delicious tiny pastry triangles. They are traditionally eaten during the Jewish festival of Purim in March.

Packed with flavour, the pastries can be sweet or savoury. For this baking workshop, the Museum will have a range of different fillings for you to choose from.

The baking workshop is ideal for ages 6+ but open to all ages – so everyone can try baking traditional Jewish pastries. You’ll also get to take home your freshly baked pastries too.

No experience necessary – perfect for baking beginners.
