here …http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/hornbeambakerscollective/… to raise much needed funds for our new move!
We are the Hornbeam Bakers Collective, a group of community bakers who make and sell our bread for local markets, cafes, and our communities. We are passionate about making real (healthy) bread and running community baking workshops which are currently the MOST AFFORDABLE BAKING BREAD WORKSHOPS IN LONDON!
We have been baking in the collective since 2006 and have organically grown over the years. We begun with hand kneading and transporting our bread by bicycle trailer and have been based at the Hornbeam Centrehttp://www.hornbeam.org.uk/ in Hoe St Walthamstow and now we are looking to expand and grow!
With your help we are moving into a new bakery premises as part of a community workshop project, in Walthamstow London which will enable us to not only grow as a collective, which would benefit our local communities, but also offer you much more of our affordable baking bread workshops and even training to become a baker! …As well as even more of our organic nutritious bread.
We are moving into a new community based project at Blackhorse Workshops in Walthamstow Londonhttp://www.createlondon.org/event/blackhorse-workshop/ where we will set up our bigger and better bakery workshop. This will enable us to:
- bake for our regular markets
- run even more of our popular baking workshops. For just £30 you can attend our workshops to learn how to bake real bread.
- set up an in house café
- cater for local events
- We will also offer baker enthusiasts training to build their experience and skills in a professional equipped kitchen and you could even end up joining our baking collective, working in a bakery or setting up your own business!
You will learn how to bake bread with experienced bakers from the collective who have various backgrounds of training and bread baking skills. You will be working with high quality ingredients and techniques and professional equipment to create beautiful breads that are wholesome. We believe in high standard of craftpersonship and in helping people achieve their full potential in baking by demystifying bread baking for the community and making it more accessible.
We endeavour to make the Hornbeam bakers Collective Community Workshop one of the most affordable and community focused bakery workshops in London.
We have the space, the experience and we have the vision. Now we just need the funding to build and equip the bakery and get an oven. We cannot bake without an oven!
By pledging now you’ll help fund the equipment, but you’ll also prove to our other backers that there are people out there who want and need these facilities which they will also benefit from. At this stage in our development your support is absolutely critical. So please help the Hornbeam Bakers Collective and pledge something now!
There are plenty of rewards and this project will benefit you, us and the communities we are a part of!
