Together We Rise

Monks Orchard Road

A practical, hands-on bread making workshop with Gaye Fisher, who during 2016 worked on the pilot project 'Together we Rise' with 'Real Bread Campaign' on exploring the benefits of therapeutic baking workshops at Bethlem Royal Hospital. In this workshop, Gaye will demonstrate how to make naan bread.

I set up and ran a nursery school in my home from 1990 to 2006. After closing the nursery we stayed in the home and I set up Sticky Mitts teaching children how to cook family meals. In 2011 I became a Bread Angel and Sticky Mitts then morphed into a Micro Bakery. Bread Angels is a network of mainly home bakers who bake “real bread” for their local communities. We also teach bread making and do some voluntary work using bread as a form of therapy. I have been a member of the Real Bread Campaign since its inception. The definition being bread that is free from all additives and fermented over a long period of time for maximum flavour and digestibility.

Sticky Mitts is an award winning micro-bakery in South London run by Gaye Fisher who completed Virtuous Bread’s Micro Bakery course with Jane Mason in 2011 and became one of Jane’s first Bread Angels. Since then Gaye has been selling bread to her local community, teaching baking and trained over 30 people to set up their own micro-bakeries. www.stickymitts.co.uk

Real Bread Campaign is part of the food and farming charity Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming. Starting from a universally accessible definition of Real Bread as: made without any artificial additives, its mission is to find and share ways to make bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet. https://www.sustainweb.org/realbread/
