This one day course is a unique opportunity to try your hand at traditional bread making in the inspirational setting of St Fagans National Museum of History as part of this year’s Food Festival.

You’ll learn all the techniques needed to prepare delicious, handmade bread in the traditional manner, under the guidance of Nick Macleod from One Mile Bakery Cardiff​.

Discover more about the ancient art of bread making and meet the miller in our lovingly reconstructed flour mill. Have a go at milling grain by hand before heading back to base to continue baking. After proving, you will bake your bread in our historic communal Georgetown bread oven​ and then take your own artisan loaf home at the end of the course.

This fun relaxed course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience of bread making. The price of your ticket includes all materials and equipment required for the day.
