An intriguing and poignant biography about the early life and childhood of Dianna M. Williams of the Dancing Dolls. Dianna is an unusual woman, her childhood story and eventual success even more so. Eldest of her siblings and forced to assume a parental role and responsibility other children her age were never able to comprehend, she matured rather fast for her age. Although her adolescent mind didn’t know it yet, she was being formed into a future leader and visionary of the art of dancing. Due to her temperament and demeanor, she was an easy target for bullies and this would shape how she responded to the challenges the world threw at her in the future, but finding solace and acceptance in her closest friends, and other positive influences in her life, she was able to shrug off setbacks and move on. Follow Dianna on a trip down the memory lane of her childhood before the dancing dolls, her ties with her siblings, her uneasy relationship with her parents and her friendships that forged her indomitable persona led her down the road to what she is today.

Follow Dianna on a trip down the memory lane of her childhood before the dancing dolls, her ties with her siblings, her uneasy relationship with her parents and her friendships that forged her indomitable persona led her down the road to what she is today.

Follow Dianna on a trip down the memory lane of her childhood before the dancing dolls, her ties with her siblings, her uneasy relationship with her parents and her friendships that forged her indomitable persona led her down the road to what she is today.

Baking 101 @ Root Baking Co

We will host a small group of ultra-beginners* here at the bakery to learn how to bake at home with sourdough starter. We will cover how to train up a lively starter from scratch, how to mix, ferment, shape, and bake your own loaf, and how to best utilize your home oven to produce crusty delicious results. We are limiting class size due to our small space, and to maximize hands-on bench-time with our lovely bakers!

You will take home:

  • A fresh loaf of sourdough that you’ve made!
  • A bit of active starter to keep you baking at home
  • Freshly milled whole wheat flour to feed your starter
  • Information packet including helpful tips and notes from the class
  • Replicable formula for homemade country sourdough bread*This class is intended for folks who have little to no experience with naturally leavened baking. We will cover all basics to build a confident foundation upon which you can explore later, more advanced classes that’ll be offered in forthcoming months!
