Spend an hour in a working Artisan Bakery mixing sourdough. Feed the starter, soak the seed, fold the dough. The process from star to finish takes 24 hours. You will help to make the bread to be baked the next day. Learn the essential steps of sourdough in this unique opportunity: hands-on working in a micro bakery.
30+ years ago I baked bread in my home to sell at a local market in Bowraville in NSW. I loved baking, and people loved my bread, however my product wasn't quite to the standard I wanted. A few years ago I tried again and this time achieved the result I wanted. When I started a sourdough culture the result was even better. I now have a beautiful bakery in North Carlton and some of the most appreciative and lovely customers I could hope for. I'm delighted to offer workshops to people who love bread and want to make their own. Bread is for sharing: recipes, experiences and loaves.

The bakery is located in a late 1870s shopfront in Rathdowne Village, on Rathdowne Street in North Carlton. Large windows look out onto the leafy street and Curtin Square. It is a beautiful bakery in a picturesque location. The workshop occurs on a quiet day when the first doughs are prepared for the week, and no bread is baked.
You'll be preparing bread in a working bakery, please wear comfortable shoes and clothes. I provide aprons but you'll have your hands in plenty of flour and dough; practical clothing suits this work.
