How to get here

  • Bradley International Airport in Hartford, CT (3 hours)

Where to stay

This list of local accommodations offers discounted rates for King Arthur Flour Baking Education Center students. Please note that many of the businesses reserve blackout dates for particularly busy times of year. We recommend securing a room as soon as possible, especially during the fall season.

What to bring

We provide all equipment, small tools, and ingredients necessary to class participation. Because you'll likely have baked treats to take home after class, you may want to bring a cooler if your trip is long. Space constraints prevent us from providing storage for student baked goods.

What to wear

Please dress in comfortable clothing that you don't mind coating with flour. We recommend closed-toe, protective shoes and minimal jewelry. We provide aprons and side towels.

Start time

Classroom doors will open 15 minutes before the class is scheduled to begin. Please feel free to visit our café or browse our retail store while you wait for class.

Dietary concerns

Please contact us prior to your class if you have food allergies or other dietary concerns, so that we may try to accommodate your needs.

Policies

Phones, cameras, and recording devices

We welcome cameras in the classroom to record details of production for later reference; but please, no video recordings. Please silence mobile phones in the classroom.

Kids

We love to bake with kids, and we have a number of classes designed for children, including classes where children bake with their parents. Any child accompanied by a parent is the parent's responsibility and must be closely supervised at all times. For safety reasons no infants are allowed in the classroom.

Groups & private events

We're happy to schedule private classes and events around our existing schedule, and we'll work with you to design a program that will fit your group. We require a minimum of 8 students for private classes. To schedule a class, please contact us.

Waitlist

Our waitlist registrations are free, and we'll contact you by email as soon as a cancellation arises. When the cancellation is short notice, we email the entire list at once and admit the first student to reply.

Payment

Payment is required to secure your position in class. We accept all credit cards, along with King Arthur Flour gift cards. If you wish to pay by check or cash, please contact us.
