Learn the art of croissant making with Bill (The Random Acts of Croissants guy!).  Making croissants at home is often a 1 ½ to 2+ day recipe. In this class you will learn how to make a basic croissant in roughly 2 to 2 ½ hours and leave class with a dough roll ready to complete at home.  

Techniques learned will be dough chilling, rolling, shaping, layering and buttering. You will get a chance to use pre-proofed and prepared dough to create and fill (if desired) a croissant for baking during class. Bon Appetit!


  • There is a $15 materials fee for this class.
  • Please bring a container to take your dough roll home in.
  • To comply with WA State Health Department guidelines, please wear closed-toe shoes to class.
  • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. More details can be found here.

Instructor: Bill Baran-Mickle 

I finally gave in to my desire to try to make croissants at home, by myself, in 2009. I researched and attempted several recipes and came across one that fit my time-line and modest skill set. I found making a batch meditative and every now and then just feel like making a batch. Knowing I should not eat them myself I began to give them away. 

Soon, I engaged in what I call my “Random Acts of Croissants.” I also quickly moved from making plain croissants to making them filled with almond and chocolate. Being involved in a number of community boards and committees, I would randomly bring a batch for everyone, believing they could show my appreciation for the volunteer work my peers were doing. I also randomly select neighbors and friends and drop off small bags for a household. It seems to make recipients happy to get them. I certainly feel good making and giving them away!
