Event description
Take a pause and learn how breadmaking can fit into busy schedules as a mindful part of a daily routine.

About this Event

"Making bread is something that I have always found very mindful for a number of different reasons...but ultimately, it is something that employs our hands, something that requires a gentle amount of care, attention, some patience and the idea that nothing can really go THAT wrong." - Julia (The Bread Companion)

In a city where everybody is always rushing around, taking a moment to pause is often difficult. Making bread is commonly considered a long, arduous task, reserved for those with lots of time on their hands - but, in fact, though breadmaking can be slow, it is perfectly possible to fit it into a busy schedule as a mindful part of a daily routine.

Join us at our sourdough bakery and social enterprise in Haggerston on a Sunday morning for some mindful baking with The Bread Companion, a.k.a. Julia Georgallis (read more about Julia below!). Learn all the breadmaking basics, find out about different types of natural levains and yeasts that make delicious breads, plus make your own sourdough loaf, rye loaf and Better Health’s famous pizza-al-taglio.

Materials, ingredients, recipes and lunch all included. Take home all you make in the session along with a free Better Health Bakery apron!

12 places available per class.

£78 per class, 10am - 2pm at Better Health Bakery (13 Stean Street, E8 4ED) - Just 2 minutes walk away from Haggerston Overground station.

*If you have a jam jar or other container at home, please bring it with you in order to take away your starter. Don't worry if you forget or don't have anything as we'll have some spares on hand!

Julia is part of the Better Health alumni, having started her journey as a volunteer back in 2014 and working as a part-time baker up until 2018. Julia has been running nomadic bakery, The Bread Companion, since 2014. Inspired by communal bread ovens of the past, the bakery uses a wood fired oven to bake bread, run supper clubs and events, as well as to teach people how to make their own homemade loaves from scratch. TBC has run a great many workshops all over the place, from Stroud to Sweden, from council estates to rural desert communities.
