- Tear up the dinner party rulebook at one of Denby’s interactive workshops, featuring top food and design specialists - 

Home and dining experts Denby Pottery and John Lewis have teamed up to launch a series of in-store workshops designed to shake up traditional dinner party etiquette and inspire guests to master the art of entertaining at home.

Recent research from Denby reveals that whilst we are a nation of entertainers, with 87% of Brits enjoying hosting friends and family over a bite to eat, the traditional dinner party set-up has fallen out of favour - only 1/3 of Brits (34%) lay a formal table setting and 3/4 (75%) admit to not serving three-courses.

With the help of food and design specialists, iconic pottery brand Denby has devised a series of interactive masterclasses offering inspirational advice and tips on modern entertaining.
