What you'll learn in this pastry class:

We're going to make the iconic pastry - the croissant. Our chef will guide you through the entire process from folding in the butter to rolling and "turning" the dough, to shaping.

This class happens in two sessions over two days. Please see the calendar below for schedule details. Total in class instruction is 3.5 hours.

[First Session]

  1. We'll start by making the dough
  2. While the dough is resting, we'll make almond croissant filling and strawberry jam to smear on your croissants when they're done. If you want to skip this, you're welcome to.
  3. We'll then roll the croissant dough and shape. We'll fold our croissants and add our fillings (chocolate and almond if you made it) as we like.

[Second Session]

  1. You'll end the class with freshly baked plain and chocolate croissants as well as almond croissants if you chose to make the almond filling.

Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

I’m confused about the timing. Is it 3 hrs Saturday evening and 1/2 hr Sunday morning?

Question from Anonymous
Hi there ,I am vegetarian So no egg ,can we still make them ? If yes then only I want to enroll my self
Answer from Jenny T. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
You can use egg replacer or even hydrated flax meal for the egg substitute. Eggs aren’t a key component of croissants - it’s more for appearance and to bind together the almond cream for almond croissants.

Question from Kevin K.
Bakers yeast is hard to come by these days but I do have a sourdough starter. Is it possible to substitute this?
Answer from Jenny T. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Yes! For sourdough, six hours before class, feed 1 Tbs. mature starter with 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup warm (80 F- 85 F) water. The recipe will need to be adjusted, which will be discussed in class, if you mention you are using starter.

Question from Rebecca J.
Is this class vegan diet friendly?
Answer from Eve B. Verified Educator
You can use egg replacer or even hydrated flax meal for the egg substitute. Eggs aren’t a key component of croissants - it’s more for appearance and to bind together the almond cream for almond croissants. You can use vegan butter instead of regular butter. The texture and flavor won’t be the same, but it’ll work!
