You are cordially invited to Workshop Weekend, Santa Cruz, Oct 6 and 7.
I’m teaching “Real Bread (and Butter) in 10 Minutes” on Saturday, October 6th at 2:00pm.
Workshop Weekend is a weekend-long event of short, 1 to 3 hour long workshops in subjects from exploring 3D modeling and printing, building a mini robot, and creating your own jewelry to making ricotta cheese and discovering DNA modeling! It’s a festival of learning with more than 40 hands-on workshops to choose from, all taking place October 6-7 in downtown Santa Cruz — pay $30 and take as many workshops as you like! The weekend is a family-friendly gathering for kids and adults alike, bringing together arts, crafts and engineering workshops, all taught by the bay area’s best makers.

See you there!
Bread-loving guests on their way, but the bakery’s closed and the pantry’s empty? Make your own! You can make your own delicious bread inexpensively with less than 10 minutes effort, including cleanup.
In this workshop, we’ll go through all the steps needed to make bread at home. We’ll also cover topics including instant yeast vs sourdough, refrigerated dough, crust, crumb, shaping, amendments, the chemistry and biology of bread, and the thousands of varieties of this staple food.
As a bonus, we’ll make our own specialty butter while our bread bakes!
You will eat and bring home what we make in class. And with the skills you build in this workshop, you’ll see bread recipes as suggestions instead of steps to be followed. The sky’s the limit!
Note: If you have anything (possibly home made?) you wish to bring to spread on the bread we’ll be making & tasting, it would be a wonderful addition to the event!
Students must bring the following:
Optional: Something to spread or put on your finished, fresh hot bread!
Time: Sat 2pm-5pm (0 open seats)
