Happy Bakers!


"A great Experience day for my husband and I. Waiting for our next lesson when its ready"





"Just wanted to say thanks for the lovely Saturday afternoon. I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a few hours than to have your hands in a bowl full of flour, water and yeast, chatting and listening to all your handy hints. The tasty lunch, cups of tea and beautiful, homemade breads to takeaway were the icing on the cake!"

Everything will be provided throughout your afternoon including all of the ingredients, aprons, bowls, recipes, materials and equipment.
