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.  The weekend will be catered with food cooked in  
the two already existing wood fired cob ovens we have on site.

As we go through the process of building an oven throughout the  
weekend we will also be engaging in the process of cooking in one and  
sharing and feasting on some of the myriad of things that can be  
cooked in them, including a pizza dinner Saturday night, frittatas,  
roasted vegetables, sourdough bread, granola, and yogurt.

The process of building as well as cooking in a wood fired oven  
encourages us to redevelop our relationship to the way we eat and  
cook, encouraging us toengage in the journey of the creation of a meal.

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.  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.
