What we’ll do

In this 4-hour experience, I teach you about good quality white dough-making, and how to make and bake different classic shapes including a Tin, Cob, Stick, Plait, and more! In a matter of hours, you will make bread with an unforgettable crust, flavour, and aroma – just the thing you would want to share with your family and friends.

What I’ll provide

Drinks
We'll provide tea, coffee, and spring water.
Equipment
From bowls to tins, we'll provide everything, including an apron.

What to bring

A large box to take all your bakes home

Where you'll be

We'll be in the grounds of a traditional water mill near Shaftesbury, Dorset. It is a tranquil place, entirely suited to learning about real bread, and where you can buy stoneground flour. While you're in the area, you may also like to visit Gold Hill, from the old Hovis TV ad, and the many National Trust properties in Dorset and Wiltshire.
