Fleur, Katie and Gordon run a range of classes for beginners to the more experienced bakers and fermenters.

Fleur’s Sourdough for the home baker class is our introductory sourdough class - no need for any baking experience. Her Advanced sourdough class is for more experienced bakers. Fleur also teaches our Viennoiserie class making croissants and danish pastries.

Fleur, Katie and Gordon share the teaching for our fun Italian breads and pizza class, no experience needed.

Katie’s fermented foods and drinks classes provide you with all you need to start fermenting delicious veg and drinks yourself.

All full-day classes include a delicious vegetarian lunch and there is always lots to take home. Click on the individual class for more details.

We are located 15 minutes off Junction 26 or 27 M5. Our closest station is Tiverton Parkway, and nearest town, Wellington, Somerset.
