Using sourdough culture is an ancient method of making bread. Come and learn the basics of this wonderful technique to bake incredibly nutritious and tasty loaves. You will learn to make sourdough starters and production leavens and experiment with different doughs. By the end of the workshop your own handmade sourdough loaf will be ready to take home together with your own starter for future baking, recipes and a lot of new skills. After this course it is possible to bake your own sourdough bread far cheaper than to buy it.

My partner and I had a brilliant time at the workshop! Hat was a great teacher and gave a good intro to the different stages for sourdough baking. Really great for beginners and for those with some baking experience. Nicely paced, with tips along the way. It was great to take a freshly baked loaf home, plus two doughs at different stages and beginning a starter culture in the workshop for future sourdough baking adventures! Would recommend :)

In November 2016 the Blackhorse Workshop redeveloped the area occupied by the kitchen so now courses are run…
