One-day Breadmaking Courses. Join us for a fantastic day out in our lovely bakery overlooking the River Severn in the Forest of Dean. Learn about traditional baking and sourdoughs, and come home with a huge basket of impressive bread and full notes and recipes. Online Breadmaking Courses.
Watch our videos and download course notes when it suits you – and view again and again! Our first course, ‘The Secrets of Artisan Baking’, illustrates all the key tips for making the best bread you’ll ever eat. Join our forum to learn more.
Sourdough Cultures.
Buy a live, reliable sourdough starter culture here. Dried cultures are difficult to activate, so we sell fresh, live sourdough starter cultures which are very reliable and easy to get going. We sell three types, all used with great results in our artisan bakery.
Breadmaking equipment.
We sell things which we feel are important, yet sometimes hard to find. Includes bannetons (proofing baskets), temperature probes, scrapers, and lames (slashing knives).


two-bakers100We also provide 
consultancy for bakeries, cafes and restaurants who want their bread to be as good as their food!

“Just a short note to thank you for a great bread-making course last weekend.
I can’t wait to put my new skills into practice- once we’ve got through our amazing basketful!”  GD
