Classes 2014

Earthen Oven Workshop May 24 & 25, 2014

Wood-fired Earthen Oven Construction w/Anna Wolfson

May 24 - 25, 2014 hands-on workshop
What happens when we lend our human hands and wisdoms to the elements?  Separating and combining elemental materials of earth water and air and fire in measured order we will create a most utile and beautiful tool – a wood-fired earthenoven - which will not only cook the most delicious of breads, pizzas, and veggies, but will serve as an interactive centerpiece of happy gatherings for years to come.
In this workshop, we will build an earthen oven from foundation up, discussing site specific and material specific considerations and techniques along the way.  Learning experientially, participants will develop their intuitive understanding of the qualities of the natural building material, “cob”, a mixture of clay, sand, and straw, which can be utilized in a variety of earthen projects from ovens to wall construction and finishing.  Mindful of the dimensions and conditions crucial to a clean burning oven, we will insulate and lay the fire-brick floor, sculpt the fire-cavity, create the massive and insulating cob enclosure layers, and discuss how to fire and care for an earthen ovenover time.
Students will receive handouts detailing construction drawings and key material characteristics.
Date: Saturday & Sunday, May 24-25, 2014
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Course Fee: 150$; max 20 participants
Location:  The Rural Homestead, Orangeville, IL (map with registration)
Onsite camping is available, and all participants are welcomed to join in a potluck dinner Saturday night on site.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: May 20th
