Gain a new pet to cherish and take care of in this full day sourdough intensive class. You will see the entire process from feeding and maintaining the starter to mixing, shaping, and baking beautiful loaves
of bread of old world quality. We will also explore some uses for excess starter (crackers, scones, donuts), old bread (croutons, meatballs, bread pudding) and make sourdough pizza for lunch. You will get a glimpse into the rhythms of being a sourdough baker and the joy that comes with it. This course will be very hands on so come prepared to get messy. You will leave this course with the confidence and tools needed to bake your own sourdough loaves at home. You will receive a sourdough starter pet, a banneton and towel for proofing your bread in, a ready to bake loaf of bread for your dinner that night, Organic locally grown bread flour from Meadowlark Organics Mill and Farm, a bench scraper, and lots of snacks and treats from our day of making.

Sliding Scale Course Fee Guidelines

Supporter Level Ticket: $110
This tier reflects the full value of the offering. If you move through the world with financial ease and the means to fulfill many of your wants as well as your needs – you are able to eat out when you want, abundantly meet your needs through employment or can comfortably not work, have access to family wealth, own property, etc. – consider paying at this level, which will help us ensure the long term sustainability of our programs while keeping our offerings accessible to those with access to fewer resources.

Sustainer Level Ticket: $85
If you are able to meet your needs with relative ease while budgeting your educational and entertainment spending – for instance, you are able to take multiple classes per year and eat out occasionally as long as you are mindful – consider paying at this level, which will help sustain the work of the Folk School at a modest level.

Supported Level Ticket: $60
If you struggle to fund your basic needs and have limited access to resources in your family and community, and/or if you would not be able to access this offering without a discounted payment option, consider paying at this level. We value your presence and contributions to our community and do not want any economic circumstances to be a barrier to attendance!
