Build a Cob Oven at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.
This one-day course shows you how you can build your own oven using simple techniques and materials. This is very much a hands-and-feet-on experience, tremendous fun and immensely satisfying. By the end of the day participants will have developed the skills they need to build an oven for themselves. While fantastic for baking pizza, wood-fired ovens are capable of cooking any dishes you desire, from roasts through to breads and desserts. The only limit is your imagination!
The course includes a delicious, home-made lunch freshly cooked in a cob-oven.
You will need to wear: old clothes, sturdy boots and gardening gloves. This course takes place outside so please dress for the weather.
Tutor: Matthew Lloyd
Matthew relishes the challenge of designing a sustainable lifestyle fit for the future. Having built a straw-bale studio and numerous cob ovens, he is keen to inspire and enable others to do the same.
