How do you create colourful ferments in your kitchen using plant material and microbes readily available? In our afternoon online masterclass, Jelena returns to Zoom to talk you through the process of creating colourful brines for lacto-fermentation, demonstrate how to make one and show a vibrant “gathering of jars” of various ferments. We will explore what drives people to ferment, how to do it safely at home, and look at different fermentation types. The masterclass will accommodate up to 100 participants, as we open up our online making sessions to as many people as possible!

To take part in the session you will need:

-       A tray or bowl, some glass jars with lids, and a chopping board
-       A permanent marker
-       A laptop or phone to join the online workshop video call with.
-       Ingredients (a week before the workshop Jelena will email round a list of ingredients that you need to collect)

No experience or skill necessary, all welcome!

Fermentation expert and potter Jelena started to investigate her food identity in London’s diverse cultural environment after a career with BBC News. Through her fermentation practice, Jelena explores her Balkan heritage and delves into macrobiotic training, extracting and sharing fermentation practices from around the world. She runs fermentation workshops for kids and adults at a greenhouses charity in South East London and provides teaching and consultation for both individuals and food businesses through tailored private workshops. Her young family has become accustomed to having Research & Development jars all around the house, although they wish she would contain them in one place. 

This workshop is part of the Festival of Stuff.
