The Masterclasses are on classes of 8-12 at the Newton & Pott headquarters and production kitchen close to Broadway Market in Hackney, London. The class will be hosted by Kylee Newton (author of The Modern Preserver and founder of Newton & Pott).
We'll go through the techniques of making brine for pickling and the fermentation process in the Pickle class or/and the setting points and chemistry surround making jam in the preserves class. We'll cover the importance of the seasons and saving the seasonal glut, good sterilisation practices for longevity, as well as a little background on how Newton & Pott got started. Plus you get to take home all of your makings of the day.
If you join our special extended Sunday class we will cover all of the preserving techniques where students take home between 6-8 jars to gift amongst your family and friends.

"We loved the Newton & Pott masterclass. Great, hands-on instruction in a relaxed format and a bag of goodies to take home too. I have actually pickled at home since too."
- Cerys Williams
"Kylee's master class is a must! I was bought the book & the class as a present and I'm so glad I went as it gave me the confidence to dive into the recipies on my own. We had a lovely day pickeling and jam making and got to watch the queen pickler work her magic! I thoroughly recommend her classes."
- Clara Baker
"As a lover of food and hater of waste, this masterclass has given me the confidence to get preserving. Kylee’s knowledge and passion are inspirational, and she makes what can seem a dark art, very doable, delicious and fun. The masterclass has given me a skill that will last longer than jam and the results shared with friends."
- Sarah Brown
"Not only did I leave Kylee's laden with five jars of her Cucumber and Beer Pickle, three jars of her Raspberry and Rose Jam and a generous side portion of life envy - but also an appreciation of the techniques that'll allow me to experiment away at home. Essentially, everything I was after."
- Carole Breen
"I really enjoyed meeting the lovely Kylee Newton at the Masterclass in April. She is such a talent - a font of knowledge which she is happy to share! She made the class fun and interesting and I learned a lot - who knew gin and cucumbers were a match made in heaven?? I wish Kylee continued success and urge you to buy her book, it will change your life!!!"
- Pauline Bryes
"The Newton and Pott masterclass was nothing short of wonderful - from my beautiful frilly apron to the armfuls of homemade pickles and jams we left with. Within an hour I had gifted a jar of each to a good friend - leaving me with a sense of gratification and he, warmth and gratitude - thus is the power of a good pickle. Kylee was a brilliant host while being a gentle and kind teacher. I have been singing her praises to anyone who will listen (and who've eaten my jam!) since."
- Zoe Cuthbertson
"I have booked marked about 20 recipes in Kylee’s book The Modern Preserver and I’m so eager for particular fruits and vegetables to come in to season so I can start chopping them up! Thank you SO much Kylee, this was an absolutely wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon."

"Kylee’s masterclass was such an enjoyable afternoon, made so much fun by her easy style of teaching and fun approach to the experience. It was so nice to meet new people over jam and pickle making, and the products we took away with us were beyond delicious. A definite must, thank you Kylee!"
