    Bread Therapy at The Bread Bar

    Date: Saturday, October 20th; Sunday, October 21st
    Time: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
    Venue: Ashton Court

    Following a discovery of grain embedded into stones used to pound grain in a cave in Mozambique, it’s been estimated that the earliest breads were being made around 100,000 years ago.  Likely to be an Injera sourdough, the first bread was probably a flat bread traditional to Ethiopia – which makes the trusty sourdough even more amazing as a craft that people rave about again today.

    There is so much to learn about bread, and with a different form of bread at the heart of every culture, it’s varieties are vast, yet its variations play a central role around the world.  Our Bread Bar is a place to come and learn how to actually make bread, whilst receiving a bit of bread therapy from kneading, shaping and seeing your dough evolve and grow… pull up a pew and prop up the bar to get your hands dirty for a wee while – you may even get to see the fruit of your labour baked in our community bread oven if you stay long enough too!

    This activity was originally developed with our friends at Shambala Festival.  To acknowledge this history, the bakers at our Wild & Well bread bar will have some special Shambala starter available to use, if you ask nicely!  Shhh it’s a secret…! 

    This is a drop-in activity in The Wild Kitchen.
