WHERE: Marshall, North Carolina. We are located approx. 30 minutes outside of Asheville, just a bit off the beaten path nestled between mountain ridges and the French Broad River.  The bakery is intimate and rustic so expect to be cozy with your classmates. You will need your own water bottle and apron. Workshops will involve wheat flour. Our space is not gluten free, nor are any of the snacks we provide. Keep in mind our oven is located outside so please dress appropriately. Even in the cold we will be heading outdoors to bake.
