Pizza / Cob Oven one day building course

Pizza / Cob Oven one day building course

Build a Cob Pizza oven

Details

Starting with an existing plinth tutor Dave Alty will teach you how to prepare, level and install the fire brick base and explain all about the importance of materials choice, insulation levels, clay and material procurement, and dimensions etc.

Soon you will start mixing the cob with bare feet whilst others start to build and model the sand forma for the actual oven shape - tasks will be shared to ensure experience of every stage is acquired. Once the cob is ready the group will prepare the cob loaves and begin to cover the forma so creating the oven shape.

There will be a previously made pizza oven still needing to be opened up to complete the lesson and then students can empty the sand out - create the door and then light , use and discuss the other stages required to complete your own oven at home. You will also learn how to protect your oven from the elements and the sourcing of all materials.

Of course you will be making both pizzas and bread in the oven at the end of the day, time allowing.
