BACK-YARD CLAY OVEN BUILDING CLASS
This is a 2 day class on consecutive Saturdays 9 am to 5 pm.
Day 1 will start with a discussion of materials, types of ovens, site selection, and appropriate covers for your oven. We will then tear down an existing oven to discover how they come together. After the tear down, we will begin building an oven from the ground up.
During the first day we will build the insulating layer, clay base, set fire brick, form the oven cavity and cover with clay-sand mix
Day two: We will begin by reviewing the process to date, evaluating cracking and any changes we may need to make. We will then place the insulating layer followed by the final cobb layer.
The end of day 2 will be high lighted by clay oven baked pizza, party and discussion of the previous days work.
6 student minimum to hold class.
