Hi all,

I'm the founder of The Handmade Bakery in Yorkshire, UK. We were the first community supported bakery in the UK and we're a worker coop making slow fermented organic bread.

I thought some of you may be interested to know that after lots of hard work we've just launched our first online course on artisan bread basics!  It's more than an hour of video taking you through the entire process of the sponge and dough slow fermented bread making process. There are notes and recipes as pdfs to download too! I hope some of you will find it useful!

Check it out here at:

Dear Dan:

I'd  like to express my gratitude and appreciation to you for sharing the above video.  Your instructions have worked wonders for me, who's lacking both training and practice.    It was my lucky day when I found your video! A big thank you to you!!!
