There are tons of things we'd like to do, but find reasons not to. Faced with a world of possibilities we respond with excuses like: "I haven't got time", "my phone says theres a 40% chance of rain from 2pm" and "don't you need special shoes for that?".
At first direct we're on a mission to help people drop the excuses that stop us trying the things we've always wanted to do. And what better way to start than by having a bit of a dabble. Our Dabble Sessions brought together three masters from the worlds of graffiti, kirigami and meringue making to help Iain Stirling (and a group of keen first-timers!) find a new passion, or at least have some fun trying.
Three workshops. One day. Game on.
Rated as one of London's best foodie masterclasses by the Evening Standard, Meringue Girls is the delicious brainchild of founders Stacey O'Gorman and Alex Hoffler.
After swapping sweaty male-dominated kitchens for girl-powered yumminess in 2012, they shot to fame when Jamie Oliver's photographer David Loftus Instagrammed their meringues. Soon, private orders began to flood in and they've never looked back.
During their Dabble Session, the Meringue Girls gave Iain a crash course in meringue crafting. It's fair to say that some got the hang of it faster than others.
