Clay oven workshop

Oven building 1Today was the first day of our 2 day clay oven workshop and open day. It was a lovely sunny day, which was a relief after all the wind and rain.

Oven building 2People of all ages came to have a look around the garden, sign up for a micro allotment and get involved with making the clay oven.

In the afternoon we had time to get started with the sunken seating area. We finished removing the inner breeze block wall and soil. The youths enjoyed smashing up the blocks to make hard core needed for the floor base. We are now ready to start rendering the walls tomorrow, weather permitting.

Looking forward to another action packed day tomorrow, when we will be adding an insulating layer to the oven then more clay. All welcome to come and join in.
