Learn how to build your own Cob Clay pizza or bread oven with David Alty

Over this busy one day course you will together learn how to build a cob pizza oven and so take the knowledge home with you to recreate your very own outdoor pizza oven in your own garden.

Starting with an existing plinth you will prepare, level and install the fire brick base and learn all about the importance of materials to use and insulation levels. Covering also the clay and material selection and dimension options you will then start mixing the cob with bare feet and others will create a 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 loaves to cover the sand form and start creating the oven shape.
