Sourdough Bread Making Class

Learn how to make sourdough bread in Newstead



2 hours Class size 1 to 12     label $125

Always wanted to make sourdough bread but felt too unsure? Don’t know where to start? This bread making class can give you confidence!

Join me for hands-on instruction in making your own sourdough. This will be a fun and down-to-earth session, where no question is too basic. You will learn about sourdough starter culture, how to develop the bread structure and flavour and achieve that classic sourdough crust.

You will also sample real sourdough, with wine and cheese provided!

Please note: 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.


What you'll get
  • Instruction manual for future bakes
  •  A freshly baked loaf of sourdough bread!
  •  Dough to bake at home
  •  Starter culture to make your own bread

What to bring

Please bring two containers to take home dough.

Presenter Bio- Leah Hutchinson (Sourdough Baker)

A dedicated ‘foodie’ and obsessive home cook for over thirty years, Leah has now fallen hard for the handsome allure of sourdough, along with fermented foods in general.

Baking between 60 and 100 loaves a week in her humble home kitchen, Leah designed this workshop to share her methods and enable the home cook to achieve their own real, artisan bread (for only a couple of dollars a loaf!).

Organised, informative, passionate teacher with excellent insights to baking our own Sourdough - Leah even came armed with take home loaves! Great session, super coach, wonderful teaching, fun learnings - can highly recommend!

Melissa Walker Jul 2021


This was yet another amazing Class Bento event. I have left the class confident that I can recreate
a yummy Sour Dough loaf myself. Leah was awesome and so patient. She had a group of mainly novices but we all did a great job. She provided us with individual attention and tips. With Brisbane heading into another snap lockdown I will have time to bake and also start on a new culture that I can call my own.
I highly recommend this class as I didn’t realise you could do so much with the dough.

Comfortable learning experience
Session was presented using KISS principles. The approach allowed me to leave the class feeling O could go home and cook a basic loaf of sourdough with no fear of failure.
I had lots of questions through out the evening which were all answered.
Hand hygiene was reinforced during practice part of mixing dough.
Can’t wait to do next level class.
Thankyou Leah

Great class led by a knowledgeable instructor. Leah took the time to answer all questions and demonstrated each step clearly. Enjoyed my time & eating my own loaf of sourdough was very satisfying. Would definitely do another course.

Leah was very knowledgeable and friendly! Venue could have been better with hand wash facility not so clean and only had cold/chilled water running through the tap to wash hands. Class was really good and fun for first timers as there was a lot to take in.

Leah was a great teacher. The venue was great. Class size good. I came away with the feeling that i am now able to master Sourdough making! Hopefully

Christine Wood May 2021


We began the class not knowing a thing about sourdough bread and left after two hours armed with information, practical knowledge, skills we had practised, dough and bread and above all confidence to give it a go! Thanks to Leah for your calm, engaging, encouraging presentation style. We enjoyed our first sourdough bread for breakfast this morning.

The instructor, Leah, was very lovely, and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to bread. She went around the room to ask our experiences with bread making and when she found out some of the attendees had made it before but had specific problems, or couldn't get the shape they wanted, she offered specific tips on what the cause could be and did a mini demo on other shapes we could try for those who have made bread before .

As a complete beginner who has never made bread, her instructions were easy to follow, and I ended up with so much incredible bread at the end of the night, as well as a starter to continue making bread at home.

Excellent class, 100% recommend

Jill Paxton Apr 2021


Leah was very welcoming and friendly. She spoke passionately about her sourdough and spread her passion to us. Her instructions were clear and comprehensive and it was fun to follow her. The take home guide was clearly written and easy to follow. It reinforced her class work. I look forward to doing the advanced class when I’m confident with the basic procedure. Thank you Leah for an amazing evening!

Great time, great resourcestotally enjoyed itthank-you, looking forward to the advance course next year

Elizabeth Atherton Aug 2020


My husband and I had a lovely time. Would recommend to anyone. Teacher was friendly approachable and knowledgeable.
Only thing would be if you had pricing for a couple because we came home with two of everything. So we had bread coming out our ears - not the worst problem to have.
