Bookings close on Tuesday 20th April 

Join in with our second online baking workshop where, from the comfort of your own home, you’ll learn how to bake delicious oatcakes and share your thoughts or experiences about menopause.  This series of workshops is part of our Engaging Libraries, Pause Not Full Stop menopause project, trying to start more open discussions about the Menopause.  Our baking guru, Colin Lindsay from Bread in Fife will guide us through the baking part of the workshop before we take some time out to have a cuppa and some chat with our research partner, Dr Vanessa Beck from Bristol University.  Dr Beck has carried out lots of research into the way menopause is talked about, or not talked about, and is now hoping to carry out more work around the best way to hold those conversations.

If you are a baking expert or have never baked before, everyone is welcome, just come along prepared to bake and to join in the banter!

Everyone who books will receive a recipe, equipment list and a pack of dry ingredients in advance of the workshop.  Workshop duration is around 1.5 hours.  We positively welcome partners, friends and family members to join in the conversation, so let’s get together and start breaking down those menopause taboos!

Places limited to 10 devices per workshop.
