Shropshire Council

Build a cob oven

Event details

  • Price: £75
  • Topics: Iron and stone
Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, events may be cancelled.

This one-day course shows you how you can build your own oven using simple techniques and materials.  This is very much a hands-and-feet-on experience, tremendous fun and immensely satisfying.  By the end of the day participants will have developed the skills they need to build an oven for themselves.  While fantastic for baking pizza, wood-fired ovens are capable of cooking any dishes you desire, from roasts through to breads and desserts.  

The only limit is your imagination!

The course includes a delicious, home-made lunch freshly cooked in a cob-oven.
