Up to 5 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

You will be greeted with refreshments including a sample of what you are about to create, and then explained the fundamentals of sourdough baking and why it is so nutritionally beneficial.

The next 5 hours will then be divided up into teaching, creating, nibbling and learning about mindfulness through the correlation (and explanations) it exhibits with baking; alongside making new friends

As a new addition to the course, and to give you as much value for money as possible; for lunch, you will be given the opportunity to stretch and shape your very own sourdough pizza base, which you will then be able to decorate with a selection of toppings at hand before devouring it amongst the company of fellow mindful baking enthusiasts.

Throughout the day you will be introduced to a selection of techniques and principles that will help you to not only become a master baker but a far more grounded and peaceful person, also.

After receiving a cooking demonstration, you will leave with a ready to bake loaf of sourdough that you will have created yourself, in its very own proving basket, a dough scraper and a jar of the widely sought after Timmy 'Starter' alongside the fundamental knowledge (with printed instructions) needed to create it again and again. You will also be given access to complete an 8 week mindfulness course, an added extra that puts this course on another level.

I have been cooking since a very young age and have acquired the skills needed to enter the world of sourdough, which is an art that keeps on giving back. Alongside that, I became a mindfulness instructor 3 years ago and noticed the correlation between mindful living and baking a loaf of sourdough, which sees them coming together in such a way that all of my clients leave my workshops not only having learned how to create a much sought after item of food, but also essential life learnings that allow them to combat the ravishing effects of modern day mental decay.

Where you'll be

The workshop takes place at my house, in Battersea, in my kitchen. All amenities will be available and it is in walking distance from Clapham common tube and Clapham junction station.

You will be taking home with you a ready to bake loaf of sourdough which you will have created, alongside a jar of the widely sought after Timmy 'starter'. So make sure you bring a bag big enough to transport these items with you. A shopping bag will suffice.

Tim's Mindful Sourdough baking masterclass was wonderful. He was so friendly, we felt very welcome and at ease in his home. The sourdough he'd pre-baked was delicious, it was great fun learning how to make our own loaves, the pizzas we made together were very tasty. There was plenty of time to sit down with a cup of tea and relax between sourdough-making stages... I enjoyed chatting about mindfulness mediation with Tim. I'm yet to bake my loaf - my Mum has made hers, and it went very well! We are looking forward to perfecting our techniques (with the detailed instructions, and equipment we got on the day). Thanks Tim!

Had a great 5 hours with Tim and a couple of other guests learning all about Mindfulness and how to bake a perfect sourdough (super tasty!)! The class is at Tims home which was cool as felt really personable and everything needed was provided. It was actually a great balance of chatting, learning to cook and understanding more about Mindfulness without being too intense and feel tim knows how to tailor this depending on how deep you want to go. Totally recommended- also baked my sourdough and it tastes amazing- thanks again Tim!!

Tim is an excellent host and guide for this experience. Sourdough bread that was made at the session and brought home to baked turned out great. Will definitely recommend this to everyone who wants to learn mindfulness and sourdough bread making.
