Breadmaking Workshop

Make, bake and take home 2 loaves with a bread tin and small jar of local honey!
2 hours of instruction from our professional baker in a working bakery!

This is hands on from the start.
The small group of participants will be fully instructed on how to make a spelt loaf and whilst this is proving they will make a delicious spring onion and mature cheddar soda bread.


1. Make a Spelt dough
2. Prove the dough
3. Make a spring onion and mature cheddar soda bread
4. Both loaves are baked
5. Whilst your loaves are baking the bread making process is recapped and a talk on the history of local grains and bread making is given.

Our bread making experiences run on Monday evenings from 6:30pm till 8:30pm, and we’re able to offer this experience for just £35 per person or as little as £60 per couple, making it a very enjoyable and affordable evening out.

(Please note, the workshop may occasionally run slightly longer due to proving times for the bread dough)
