New Workshop Coming Up

Build a wood fired clay oven

The traditional Wood-Fired Clay Ovens are made from raw natural ingredients like straw and leem. The latter, a combination of sand and clay, is environmentally friendly, fire-resistant, easy to shape and non-toxic: a perfect fit for an oven! In this workshop we will join forces and construct one natural oven from the ground up. Lets play, build, cook and learn together.


Leem sample - Sand and clay combined.

For whom?

This hands on workshop is recommended for all bakers, designers and chefs who are interested in physically building a Wood-Fired Clay Oven.

Over the course of two days you will construct a complete earth oven from scratch. By doing so you will gain ample understanding of the building methods, requirements and usage of clay as a raw material. Christo will also explain how to safely use such an oven and maybe share some of his finer pizza and sourdough bread recipes Go here for more details.

The workshop will be given by Christo from Building Traditions.
