Whether you’re looking to advance your baking skills or learn something brand new, you’ve come to the right place. Learn in a professional bakery from head baker, Ben Bridgen.

About Us

I’m Ben Bridgen and I’ve been a professional baker for six years, working for bakeries and baking schools such as Wild Goose Bakery, Dusty Knuckle, and Bread Ahead Baking School. I’m currently at Proto Artisan Bakery, helping them create wonderful pastries, bread, and baked treats. Since lockdown I’ve been working on my latest project, the Messy School of Bakery Ltd, and have recently moved to larger premises to lead my baking classes in Hertfordshire, in the town of Ware.
