It's not too late to enroll! you do not have time to make a starter but you can either source one from a bakery or buddy (put a call out on facebook!)

Join me in my kitchen for a one day live bread making party. Together - live and “in person” a la Quarantine Digital Device - we will begin the process of mixing flour and water and end with two loaves of homemade bread. 

The all day zoom workshop will be led by myself (Nici Holt Cline) and my dear friend and expert bread baker, Kara Daume. We will focus on the science, the art, the flexibility, the skill, the variables and the method. You will learn, help and leave armed with the knowledge and confidence and you need to incorporate this beautiful and satisfying ritual into your life. 

In this time of collective isolation, let's embrace an ancient ritual that is a staple in every culture, for thousands of years.

  4. Salt
  5. Digital kitchen scale

Nici Holt Cline is founder of DIG + CO. and authors an award-winning blog - www.digthischick.net - where she chronicles adventures with her family.

She is at her best when she is working with her hands, in the dirt or in the kitchen. She has many years of baking experience, both professionally and personally, that has fueled a passion for the process of making a bread that nourishes.

It's easy to feel intimidated by maintaining a sourdough starter. Or that those glorious crusty loaves shared on instagram are part of some exclusive, mystical coalition. Or that the time investment can't possibly fit into a busy schedule. Kara and I will share how we do it and, together, we will have so much fun!

This live workshop is all about breaking it down and creating an experience that nourishes our bodies, our communities, our souls.

Who knew bread could be life changing?

Making and creating with my hands has always been the best therapy for me. It is no different with making bread from scratch that also nourishes my family-body and soul. Since learning 4 weeks ago, I've made it my Sunday ritual to bake bread and we love it. I've begun gifting loaves and seeing the joy it brings people is so rewarding. Thank you for teaching me this life-long skill that I hope to pass on to my children and grandchildren. The class was a complete joy in a really hard time of life. I feel blessed.

Wonderful Class!

This was such a wonderful experience. Not only was it informative and practical (my bread turned out sooo good), but Nici had such grace and ease in her teaching. I enjoyed being on call with over 100 people, and it was not as overwhelming as that might sound. I felt a sense of community. THANK YOU!

What a wonderful way to make bread

This class was amazing! Nici and Kara were great teachers. As a total beginner to bread making I thought the pace and structure of the class was great. They answered so many questions and were gracious throughout. The class was a great way to feel connected to others during this crazy COVID time. I also really appreciated that Nici spoke about George Floyd and encouraged the class to speak out- it was incredibly thoughtful and important. I would definitely recommend this class to anybody! Like me you can be brand new and still enjoy delicious sourdough at the end of the day!

Loved this class

I highly recommend this class. It was such a fun way to learn how to make sourdough. Nici was so helpful and informative every step of the way. I’ve gone back and watched our recording again as I continue my bread journey solo and my loaves were even better the second time around. Nici’s positivity, encouragement and helpful tips are such a blessing! I’m so happy to have this lovely life skill and to be part of such a kind community.

Great and Informative Class!

While I wasn’t a complete beginner to bread-baking, I was new to sourdough. This class had plenty for me but the careful guidance to also help beginners. I learned so much, and I trust myself to keep trying on my own with the wonderful .pdf guide included. These ladies know their stuff!

You'll Bake Bread!

What a wonderful community experience during this time of crisis. Nici, Kara, and Corinne were on top of the knowledge, IT, and human connection during this virtual class. I bought the course for my mom and then decided to join her and bought one for myself. The instructions were clear, the Zoom platform worked well, and I've continued on with the bread baking, with 2 loaves proofing right now. Thanks!

Sourdough Bread Baking

The class was fun and a good learning experience. If you have ever wanted to learn to make bread as I have, then sign up for this class. The PDF materials and online instructions were clear and easy to follow. I am 74 years old, always have enjoyed baking, but never attempted bread making. My bread made with the class was beautiful and delicious. Go for it!

Didn't think I could do it!

This was so fun! When I first read through the PDF (prior to class) I felt pretty certain my bread would be a bust. Nici and Kara guided us the entire way and continually provided encouragement. And in the end, I made bread! I was amazed. I recommend this workshop if you're curious about baking sourdough bread.

Amazing experience!

Learning to make sourdough has always been on my list of baking skills to acquire. Nici and Kara were amazing teachers, who inspired us to trust the process and learn from our trials and errors. I now make bread weekly and have started to tweak the recipe to fit what I have on hand and add new flavors. An amazing course that laid the foundation I needed to bake sourdough bread.

My daughter, Odessa, & I loved every second of Nici’s sourdough workshop. It will go down in history as one of our most favorite memories made during quarantine. It was a real bonding experience. And something about making bread with your own hands to fed your family feels sacred. Nici’s teaching approach is engaging, gentle, & knowledgeable.

Wonderful Class!

The workshop format was well organized, informative and most of all fun! Even though we were all in our own kitchens, it felt like we were all together working with our starter and prepping our bread loaves. I had some experience with sourdough, but learned many tips and tricks to improve give me more confidence in my baking. The combined experience of Nici and the team are what made the difference. The finished loaves were beautiful AND delicious. I am happily recommending this course to any baker I know!!!

Highly Recommend!

This was such a fun class! Bread making always seemed so daunting, but this class really changed everything. The step by step guidance shared with kindness and patience, turned what had previously seemed impossible previously into something very doable. We are continuing to bake loaves and experiment with recipes - and our break-making confidence is soaring.

Great class!

I had never baked bread without a bread machine and had always been nervous to try. It had seemed so overwhelming! This class broke it down into easy to follow steps. Both Nici and Kara created a fun space to explore and it turned that there's a lot of grace in bread making. Even when I thought I had messed it up, it all came back together and I ended up with 2 amazing loaves of bakery worthy sourdough. My picky husband said it was the best sourdough he's ever tasted! Now I'm feeding my starter like a prized pet, have made the best waffles of my life with the sourdough recipe given and can't wait to try making sandwich loaves in addition to the rounds. Thank you for opening up a whole new, magical world!

For the Love of Bread!

Sourdough is something that I have wanted to experiment with for a long time, but the process seemed too daunting. But you all took that fear away. You made the art of bread making doable. And enjoyable. As a result of this workshop, I have been making and gifting lots of bread. It is such a satisfying experience, and with each bake, I learn something new. I love it. I really do.
