What We’ll Do

  • LEARN: We’ll explain fermentation and have a brief discussion about all the benefits of making and eating fermenting foods
  • DEMO: We’ll show you how to make a loaf of sourdough bread from start to finish.
  • DO IT TOGETHER: Roll up your sleeves and follow along as we go through preparing a sourdough loaf to be baked

How it Works

  • Select your class option and purchase your spot for the class.
  • NOTE: Feed your starter the night before or early in the morning so that it is active and bubbly when class begins!

  • If you order the starter, we recommend ordering no more than 7 days before class date so you can receive it in time.
  • Starter will be shipped to you via USPS (to the U.S. only)
  • We will send you the meeting link and list of Ingredients and Equipment needed so you can have materials ready before the class begins.
  • Class will be taught live, with Q&A and instructor inspecting everyone’s dough at the end upon request.*

* While we would love to have full two-way participation where we can see and hear your shining faces, if you’d prefer to listen/watch only, we will definitely respect your preference! We will have chat available during the class.

    Austin’s Sourdough Bread class taught me everything I need to know to make delicious sourdough bread at home. The class covered all the many steps in helpful, well-paced, detail, and I’m looking forward to sharing yummy bread with friends and family.

    My family and I love sourdough bread so it was really cool to take Austin’s class and learn how to do so. I don’t bake much and it would have been really challenging for me to figure it out without the demonstration and being walked through some of the steps with my own starter. Austin was patient and kind with us beginners. After the class was over, I followed through with the steps to finish the sourdough boule and had fresh, warm yummy bread. It is a process and takes time but the reward is a staple that everyone will love.

    Austin is a great teacher and it’s obvious that he enjoys it. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge about the fermentation process and will continue to utilize the content of his website. Always fun and interesting!

    I took the January virtual Sourdough Bread class, and learned so much from Austin, who is an excellent instructor. Going through my email that morning, I saw an earlier email I hadn’t read from the month before that the class was that same day, and Austin confirmed via email I could still register, AND pick up the starter before class. The interactive presentation was very well-organized and well-paced, and on a cold, rainy day in January, taking a breadmaking class in my own kitchen was perfect. I had taken an in-person kombucha class with Austin a couple years back, and the virtual sourdough class was just as well done, if not better. I’m still making great kombucha, and hope to do the same with baking bread!

    This was a great workshop to do from your own home! Austin gave a very informative and interactive class on sourdough bread making. It was not just “this is what you do”, but he also explained why it is being done. Austin had prepared 3 separate doughs at different stages of the bread making process so he could show us how to work them within this two-hour workshop. We used a starter (either received via mail or made at home prior to class following his instructions) to mix our own dough for our own loaf of sourdough bread. This class was well organized and I came away with a better understanding of the bigger picture of this craft. I am looking forward to using what I learned to explore sourdough bread making as well as other uses for my starter mix.
