Wood-Fired Earthen Oven Workshop
Jul 14 – Jul 16 all-day


WHEN: July 14-16
WHERE: City Sprouts (4002 Seward St.)

Join City Sprouts for a 2 1/2 day weekend workshop building a wood-fired oven. You will leave the workshop empowered with the knowledge needed to build a similar oven for yourself at little to no cost! The beauty of using natural materials and things foraged from your local environment means you are not reliant on purchasing conventional materials, but instead are liberated and limited only by your own creativity. Learn in depth how to make foundations for earthen construction, how to make cob, how to insulate an oven to retain heat for baking, and how to make paint and plaster out of clay and sand (and maybe some horse dung!)
