Baking club FAQs
Frequently asked questions
When & Where is Baking Club?
Term 1 classes are being held at the REmaker space at Our Place Tauranga, 91 Willow Street. This term we’re running one class on a Wednesday from 3.30-5pm. It’s most likely we’ll launch other classes at other times but this is it at this stage. I understand that it’s not always easy to get to town at 3.30 so it’s possible we’ll look at locations elsewhere- if you have a venue that you feel would be suitable for Baking Club. Please get in touch!
What does it cost? What's included?
Baking Club is run on a term basis where students enrol for the whole term and it runs for 8 weeks of each term. It is just over $30 a week. It is a small group with a maximum of 8 students and therefore the price reflects this as your child will get a fair amount of 1 on 1 attention. A music lessons or after school tutoring will cost around $30 a lesson and usually it’s only for half an hour whereas Baking Club is an hour and a half and it’s much more awesome!! This includes everything that your child will need to create something amazing each week. There are no other hidden costs such as uniform or sports gear that you might expect to pay for other after school activities!
What will students do/learn at Baking Club? Do they get to take something home each week?
You will be amazed at what the students will make in a reasonably short period of time and in a nutshell, yes!! For example, the first week of Term 1 we are making salted caramel cake jars from scratch! Each week we’ll create something to take home, but also might make a part of a larger creation (eg fondant decorations for an upcoming lesson). We’ll focus on sweet and savoury baking that teaches a specific skill set, as well as using fondant, buttercream and chocolate decorations to make our creations beautiful.
How do the terms work? Can I join at anytime?
Baking Club runs for 8 weeks of each term (with the exception of Term 1 this year) Sorry, bookings for each term are only open for a limited time. They will generally close just before the school holidays. There is a lot of preparation for each class and a lot of thought goes into creating a programme for a specific group of students. Each Term will be different though, and you do not have to have completed Term 1 to join for Term 2 etc.
How do I book? What are the payment options?
Head to the Book Now page and fill in a booking form and put through payment. I will only book one term in advance at a time so keep an eye out for an email when bookings go live! Payment for Baking Club is made for the term. We have paypal and credit card options available when you book through the website. We've just added Afterpay so you can pay off in 4 payments instead of all at once.
Who is Baking Club for?
Baking club is for students in Years 4-8 who have an interest in baking or cake decorating. They don't need to have any experience, it's for all abilities. It's also for the parents who want to encourage their children to learn these skills but don't want a messy kitchen!
