  • I've never been to Sweet Wynns before. How does it work and what should I expect?
    We're glad you asked - expect a sweet time with great people and delicious ice cream! We encourage you to arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled workshop. You'll need to wear closed-toed shoes in the kitchen and pull your hair back if it is longer than shoulder-length. You will be standing and cooking for the majority of the workshop, so be sure to dress accordingly. Each ice cream maker is paired in groups of 2 with 4 people per workstation - if there's an odd number in your party, get ready to make a new friend! For kids workshops, ice cream makers work in groups of 4. Your workshop instructor will then assist you in your ice cream creation and you'll go home with a pint of your own signature ice cream flavor! Each class varies, so be sure to read the 'Details' section of the workshop to see what's in store!
