Sourdough Classes

Penny Olive Sourdough offer hands-on sourdough baking classes once a month on a Sunday. We also run extra classes by request with a minimum group booking of four people.


Classes run from 9.30am until 4.30pm. $165 pp​ inc GST (maximum 6 participants).

What you’ll learn

The classes provide the necessary knowledge and skill required to create and maintain a starter culture, a demonstration of hand mixing and shaping dough and advice on how to get the best results in your domestic oven. Perfect for those looking to bake bread weekly at home. You will take home a jar of starter and two loaves of your own hand mixed, shaped and baked bread.

A range of biodynamic flours and essential baking equipment is also available for purchase on the day. EFTPOS is available.

What’s included

All courses include morning tea and espresso coffee, a hearty vegetarian lunch and afternoon tea, prepared with organic, biodynamic and home-grown ingredients


The classes are held in our bakery at The Patch, 3kms from the picturesque Dandenong Ranges town of Kallista, Victoria and only one hour drive from Melbourne CBD. Belgrave is the nearest train station, approximately 10 minutes from our bakery by Uber, taxi or 30 minutes by bus.
