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).
