    Adult Workshops is a curated series of workshops for adults, for which the Museum of Life and Science pairs up with our favorite Triangle-area experts. Dive in deep and explore the science behind some of your favorite things, and come away with tips from the pros for ways to build your skill on your own. Enroll in individual workshops or sign up for the full series. **Participants must be 21+.

    In our first series, explore what goes into brewing beer and making bread, with the help of brewers from Raleigh Brewing and bakers from Ninth Street Bakery. Details:

    Beer & Bread 301: Beginner Sourdough Saturday, February 3 5:00-7:00pm @ Ninth Street Bakery

    Designed for those looking to take their bread to the next level, curious about the process, or just interested in trying something new, this workshop will cover the basics of building, maintaining, and using a live yeast culture (a preferment usually called levain or sourdough). You will learn how to create and feed a starter, and work through the basic steps to bake pain au levain, a simple, naturally leavened bread that you can use as a template for other breads at home. We’ll explore some of the science behind the process, but the focus of this workshop is on using that knowledge to create tasty bread from simple ingredients. Go home with a loaf and the wisdom to craft more on your own!

    Ninth Street Bakery location: 136 East Chapel Hill St, Durham, NC, 27701
