Do you love Camphill’s bread and wish you could bake it at home?
Do you wish you knew a bit more about essential oils so that you could use them with more confidence?
Come to our market this Sunday and learn! We are offering two introductory classes for those who want to try their hands at making their own products the Camphill way.
Choose between baking with sourdough in the bakery and blending essential oils in the cosmetics workshop. Both classes start at 10.30 on Sunday 3rd April at our monthly market and will last at least 1 hour. R150 per person.
: Introductory class
We introduce some of the basics of blending essential oils for therapeutic use.
This class explores the benefits of using essential oils to improve the health of you and your family.
You will make two therapeutic blends that you can take home and enjoy with your family.
Topics include: identifying key aspects/ general properties, effect and medicinal use, synergetic effect, blending and applications.
Slow fermentation and traditional methods/hand-crafted bread
This class introduces you to Camphill's concepts, approach and methodologies in creating products that both assist and nourish the body.
This guided tour through our bakery and Camphill philosophy promises an interesting perspective on eating and living well.
Participants will be baking a loaf of sourdough bread and will receive a portion of Camphill sourdough to take home as starter for their own future baking.
Topics include: what is slow fermentation and “real” hand–crafted bread; what is a sourdough and why sourdough; how to knead bread and why the kneading is so important. Please note: you will be baking your own loaf, and it will be ready to collect at the end of the market, so plan to spend the whole morning at Camphill and relax and enjoy the market in between baking sessions.
Each class is limited to 10 people and costs R150.
