Sourdough Basics Baking Class

Learn how to make sourdough bread in Fitzroy



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 10 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $95


Rise to the challenge and prove yourself capable of creating your own tough-crusted and deliciously dense sourdough in this class for beginners.

Sourdough, it seems, is older than recorded human history. It’s made through the process of fermentation, a natural leavening that produces the perfect breakfast staple. You’ll learn why sourdough is simply the best bread (spoiler: it’s chemical-free and encourages a healthy gut).

Introduce yourself to a sourdough starter, explore its mechanics and proper care, and it’ll reward you with tangy and perfect loaves.

This comprehensive workshop covers ingredient selection, starter care, and the processes of sourdough fermentation and baking, with plenty of guidance and time for questions. Last but not yeast, you’ll take your fermenting dough home to bake in the morning. It’ll be a rye-ot!

Please note:

  •  This workshop is strictly limited to 10 tickets.
  •  This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Instruction manual for future bakes
  •  Banneton basket
  •  A loaf of bread to bake at home the following day

What to bring
  • An apron
  •  Measuring cup or jug
  •  Digital scales

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a lovely gift for her, gift for mum or anniversary gift.

I can highly recommend this course for everyone who wants to learn how to bake sourdough.
The teacher is really friendly, has very good knowledge and makes the course fun.
I thought we would experiment with rye flour but I do understand know why this isn't right for beginners. My goal is to bake awesome rye sourdough and the course gave me the tips and tricks to make it happen. Thank you!

Venue was good, technology failed which was nothing to reflect on the teacher. It did however make it harder to watch techniques.

Maddy Quinn Mar 2020


The sourdough baking class was great! Jess was really good at showing us the ropes, and we have come home with all we need to start making some delicious sourdough.

Emma North Mar 2020


The teacher was really great. As there was quite a lot of waiting around for the dough to be ready, it’s a lot of work to keep everyone engaged but she did it really well!

The sourdough basic workshop was a great workshop to start getting into making sourdough. The class was very well paced, informative and we left with our dough ready to bake the following morning. I would highly recommend this workshop if interested in fermentation and/or making sourdough
