Oct 19 — 20
This Cob Oven Building workshop is designed to teach you the skills needed to build your own oven in your backyard, as well as encouraging a new way of relating to our food and the process in which it is cooked and created. Using clay, sand and straw, we will explore the entire construction process from foundation to roof. The class is primarily hands on, involving building an oven from start to finish. (The foundation will already be built, but we will talk about how to do it, and what is needed). We will also go over all the other aspects of the building process, including soil analysis, options for variations on the oven design, moisture protection, heating and insulation for the oven, as well as how to fire and cook in the ovens. We will also discuss how to cook in your oven.
