Your Craft: Bread-making
1) Is your work available for purchase?
2) How, why, and/or when did you start making your art/craft?
Two summers ago, my grandmother gave me a sourdough recipe, but I just couldn’t get it exactly right. She’s been making this sourdough for years to give to people as presents or to serve at family gatherings, so it has a bit of nostalgia for me. Like a typical Wofford student, I took it as a personal challenge that I would get the recipe working. This past summer, my grandma showed me the ropes, taking me under a bread apprenticeship of sorts. It worked like a charm with my grandmother’s help and experience, and it’s so addictive that I’ve been hooked ever since.
3) Do you have any favorite music to listen to/Netflix show to have on while you work?
I typically work without music or TV playing. I enjoy the rhythm of baking and kneading. It’s a nice time to clear my head.
4) How has being a student at Wofford helped to shape you as an artisan?
The Space has been very helpful in getting things off the ground, and the Village is a perfect spot to bake. Most of all, though, I enjoy the people I get to meet as a result of the bread. Being able to relate to people is an important part of any craft.
