“Hi Michelle – loved our workshop on Monday, thank you!”

"We are enjoying the results of our 'labour' this morning. I work up with shed loads to do but decided the priority was to make a loaf. Which I did and it was fab. I'm so excited about the prospect of eating only homemade bread, where you know exactly what has gone into it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us." x

Team building with bread

Bread is a fantastic tool for bringing teams together and strengthening their working relationships.

Using community venues, the day is organised for teams to get the most out of the experience. From encouraging working with different people to negotiating and supporting each other in a new, unfamiliar but safe activity.
