MISS Muffets on the Tweed should get down from their tuffets and learn to make their own curds and whey.

The Cheesemaking Workshop is on the road again, visiting Kirra Beach on November 3 and 4.

There is one workshop each day which run from 10am to 4pm.

Participants learn to make six types of cheese: Camembert, fetta, quark, mascarpone, ricotta and a Greek style yoghurt.

No experience with cheese making or cooking is needed to participate, and classes are 100% hands on, with no more than 12 people per session.

Participants also feast on home baked cheesecake pre-made from mascarpone and quark for morning tea.

Ricotta made on the day is turned into spinach and ricotta cannelloni for lunch which is accompanied with a pre-made tart, salad and a glass of wine.

Owner and cheese lover Lyndall Dykes said participants are learning a lifetime skill without the need of any special equipment.

"We teach where we stay which is either in an apartment or house with a kitchen," she said.

Mrs Dykes said the workshops are fun and interactive, with even friendships being formed between the food and cheese lovers.

"We have a lot of fun and people are laughing the whole time."

"By the end of the day, friendships are formed and people are exchanging numbers," she said.

Participants leave with a bag of cheese made from the day.

This occasion is not to be missed as the workshop only visits the Tweed Heads area four times a year.

The workshop is being held at Kirra Beach and costs $190.

There are still available spots and bookings can be made up until Friday 2.

For more details and to book, contact Lyndall Dykes on (02) 6656 2335 or 0458 562 135.
