Building An Earth Oven | Stu Silverstein | Day 1 (Continued)
Join Stu for an all day workshop on earth oven construction and build a working oven. This workshop will be offered Thursday and Friday. You’ll learn how to construct a very low-cost, round, fully insulated oven that’s ideal for bread baking at home in the back yard. No expertise is required, just the desire to watch dough transformed in front of your eyes in an oven you’ve actually made yourself. You’ll learn about fire brick, clay/sand ratios, mud, insulation, stucco, weather proofing and baking mysteries. If time permits and the mud behaves, we will conclude the workshop by baking flat breads in one of the ovens. The ovens built over the two days can be purchased by participants.
