I’ve written here before about my experience of building an outdoor wood-fired oven on a workshop held at Mallow Racecourse during the summer. My own oven is still not, ahem, built (or even started) but Hendrik Lepel, ovencraftsman extraordinaire, is holding another workshop in Nohoval over the weekend of the 15 and 16 November. More details below.
Outdoor Oven Workshop – NohovalThis two-day workshop is designed for people with an interest in natural building techniques. The workshop will focus on clay, which can be abundantly found in the area. On the basis of constructing an earth oven, you will experience this versatile natural product, which plays an important part in its construction.After two days you will be able to build your own low-cost earth oven. Furthermore, you will have a very good understanding of how to apply your knowledge to any natural building project, be it constructing a solid wall, creating a natural insulation material or applying a natural plaster on your building project.You will have the know-how!The course runs on the weekend of the 15 and 16 November and costs €150 including lunch and coursebook.Limited places available, book early to avoid disappointment!For bookings and further details call: Ovencrafter Hendrik on 086 883 8400 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
