Workshop Descriptions

Muddy Fork offers online workshops and in-person workshops in artisan bread and pastry making.  

Our in-person workshops take place in our bakery, using our wood-fired brick oven, and include a pizza lunch made by the participants.  Workshops are limited to 10 people, and the cost is $95 per person.  Participants follow the whole process, from mixing dough to shaping to baking, and usually run from 10 am to about 5 pm.

Our online workshops offer you the chance to follow the artisan baking process from your home kitchen, learning how to get great results using your own equipment and oven.  Participants pick up ingredients ahead of the class (we ship too!) and put in a few active hours over a day or more.  Workshops are limited to 12 households and the cost is $69 per household, and there is plenty of time for discussion, asking questions, and getting to know enthusiastic bakers from across the country.

“This course summed up many years of trial and error amateur baking into 5 days”

– Jeff

I was so excited to find the Muddy Fork baking course. I dream of owning my own bakery and wanted to get a glimpse of what that might feel like. Taking this course was just what I needed. Eric is a great teacher!

I feel much more confident in myself as a baker, and I understand artisan bread in a whole new way.
