About
Would you like to taste, work and create figures in chocolate? Then this is the right address!During 3 hours we explore the world of cacao beans, different chocolates and we make/create our own chocolate to take home and enjoy. It is possible to translate in English during the workshop (the workshops are given in Dutch). The workshop is very visible and doesn't need a lot of translation. Reservation is necessary. For the date's, look at our website. You can also come in our shop and buy some delicious handmade Belgian chocolates! You will not regret it and one's you are back home you can order a new box from our webshop.

Chocolate making
Aug. 2019 • Family
Really enjoyed our time here trying our best to make some intersting-looking chocolates. They definitely tasted good! Very fun experience to finish our 2 week Benelux vacation extravaganza. Amazingly our creations survived the flight home in their bubble wrap. We think we are ready to move on to truffles next! Thanks again!

Belgium ... the best Jsolaa in the world

Sjolaa is a small to medium size chocolate ship, situated a bit outside the town Mechelen, but worthwhile paying a visit. Especially when the workshops are ongoing the place is full of chocolates.
Sjolaa is using the the best cacao and chocolate to make the most delicious " pralines" as we call them. On top of the common Black and milk variaties they also have a large offer insular free chocolate. ( my favourite )

During 3 hours you get the chance to work with chocolate. Johan en Katrien tell, explain and help you with passion to create and decorate chocolate figures that after the session is finished you can take home. ALL WORTH THE PRICE. GREAT EXPERIENCE. SUPER FRIENDLY KIND HELPFUL HOSTS :) :) :)

Sex and the city workshop

Most friendly and welcoming people! The choclage making was great to do. And we had a lot of possibilities go try things out which was great. Also a lot of explaining was done to show how you could fill and colour best the moulds. And the best part of all we could take all our self-made chocolate home and this is really the best chocolate I have ever eaten. They also have a shop where I go regularly and you just would buy everything it looks amazing and it taste even better. They have all kinds of different chocolates, goes from white to very dark and even with stevia. So for everybody there is something. This together with the service makes this a remarkable place!!!

My first workshop, highly recommended (even for English speakers)
May 2018 • Friends
We said we only speak English, we got our own translator (very very friendly staff).
It was a solid 3 hours, with chocolate first to test.
We had a big table, with like 10 people around (reasonable space), and an expert explaining how everything is done.
We did three types of chocolate (with complete choice of what chocolate type and shapes to make), and we finally got to take everything home.

I will bring more friends there for sure !

chocolate plain

Because one of my collegues was going to work for Jet Air, he is a pilot, I thought on a plain in chocolate and the only one who could help me out was Sjolaa.

It was a very good explanation from the beginning till the end and the workshop was basic but it's normal for beginners ;-)

Worth It!

I was delighted to find Sjolaa did workshops for individuals and they were willing to accommodate me by speaking english! It was such a fun event, the chocolate is heavenly and I left with a wider knowledge of chocolate. It was definitely well worth the trip to Mechelen (the best city in Belgium)!
