cob oven building course- 11th may 2014
Join us for a day and learn how to build a permanent cob oven using natural materials.
A cob oven is a beautiful structure that you can use again and again for baking and roasting a huge variety of foods including authentic crispy pizza, delicious bread and succulent roasts such as duck and lamb. At the end of the day you will have the confidence to build an oven using material from your own land. The course is also a useful introduction for anyone who has cob buildings in need of repair or restoration. No previous experience is required and you don’t have to be built like a navvy!
The course will be led by Andrew Hubbard from South Yeo Farm West and is primarily a hands-on course during which you will experience all the stages of building an oven, from shaping the former, building the cob dome and applying an earth render. We will also cover the theory on the basics of making cob, finding suitable soils, and techniques for mixing.
Sunday 11th May from 10am to 4.45pm.
£65 per person including comprehensive instructions with stage by stage photos for reference (via email), lunch and refreshments.
