Beginners Sourdough Making Workshop

Saturday 16th October, 10am to 12noon


£45 per person INCLUDES full starter kit to take home

Kit includes proving basket, dough scraper, bag of flour and the all-important sourdough starter.


Join us for this ever-popular workshop where Guy Stafford, our resident sourdough expert, we will be teaching us how to make a simple sourdough loaf using an organic starter and three ingredients: flour, water and salt - nothing more!


In this 2 hour workshop, we will be making a starter, a sponge and your dough. We will look at the techniques of proving, handling, shaping and baking. Guy, will also educate us all on hydration, different flours and the health benefits of sourdough. It will become clear why modern bread making techniques cause the digestive disturbances so prevalent in our time.


You’ll get tips on the tools you’ll need to make your bread life easier and how to fit it into your already busy life!


You’ll take home the dough you have made, ready to prove, along with a proving basket, complimentary dough scraper, a rye sourdough starter, a bag of flour and details on all the steps you’ve covered.


We will provide you with everything you need to make the dough except a bowl big enough in which to prove it (we will need you to bring that with you - all details given on booking).


Safety & Security

During these times of social distancing please rest assured that we are taking all the recommended steps to ensure maximum safety. Our indoor workshops will be taking place with windows open and we would ask that you bring your own hand sanitiser and mask. We will not be able to serve any refreshments at the current time, (which makes us very sad indeed) but it's critical that we ensure your safety first, and we hope that in time this will change and the coffee and cake will flow again! Fingers crossed.


We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Barn.
