Full-day course price rise

Our full-day courses in 2016 will be priced at £90.00 per person. Discounts will still be available. Members of the Real Bread Campaign get a 10% discount off all our courses and if you book as a party of 4 or more you can grab a place at £80 per person.

Our full-day courses near Clun, in South Shropshire, start at 10.30 am and finish at about 4 pm. We welcome you with a cup of tea or coffee and a piece of cake. Then we get started on making lots of bread. An example of a day with us will see us making a white bread using the kneading method, a spelt or khorasan bread using the folding method and an olive oil dough for making fougasse, focaccia or pizza. We try out different shaping techniques on the doughs. We also make an enriched dough which can be made into chelsea buns, fruit buns, iced fingers or Shropshire butter buns. We always enjoy a delicious lunch in the glass room and there are plenty of tea and cake breaks during the day.

You leave with armfuls of bread to take home, a recipe and advice booklet and a full stomach.

We have a limited number of spaces available on Sunday 15th November priced at £75.00 per person. Contact us to book your place.

Class on 19th July 2015

A busy day of bread making with four lovely ladies was had last Sunday. We made the usual selection of breads including a white dough, spelt bread, focaccia, fougasse, chelsea buns and fruit buns, ending the day with some pikelets.

Breads made during the day

We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the sunshine of the open glass room and  shared a carrot cake, fruit cake and shortcake biscuits over cups of tea. The students had travelled from far and wide to join us, so three of them had stayed overnight in Leena’s self-catering cottage right next door.

If you would like to join us for a day of baking bread then please do get in touch. We also offer evening courses in Telford too. We would love to see you.
