Learn to Build and Earthen Oven$250
July 23, 2016 - July 24, 2016 Contact
This earthen building workshop is designed to teach you the skills needed to build your own wood-fired cob oven in your backyard, as well as encourage a new way of relating to our food and the process by which it is cooked and created. The class is very hands-on; using clay, sand and straw, we will explore the entire oven construction process from foundation to roof. We will also review all the other aspects of the earthen 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. The process of building and cooking in a wood-fired oven encourages us to redevelop our relationship to the way we eat and cook, and engage in the journey of the creation of a meal. A great introduction to natural building!
