DIY Homesteader Festival Workshop:

Sourdough Bread-making

Join baker Kara Burrell, of Dunrea Farming Company, to get your hands into the process of making sourdough bread at home. Literally. In this hands-on workshop, learn the tools of the trade, as well as how to make and keep a starter – and of course, bake delicious bread. Explore a few techniques; learn about different flours; and discover the importance of hydration.

Note: This workshop is being offered on both Saturday and Sunday.

Hands-on: Participants will have opportunities to work together to help make bread, either at their own work stations, or up at the teacher work station.

Accessibility: This workshop takes place in a garage-like shelter with a concrete floor. Participants will be at work stations with chair or stool seating. There will be at least one space in the front row with priority seating for any attendees using a wheelchair.
