Cob Oven

Great to be working outside in the fresh air. As an art group we wanted to be as artistic as possible so chose a wooden base which we could carve. Yes, another new skill to have a go at. Great fun, completely absorbing. We went for a natural theme of plants and animals. I got nicknamed the Butterfly lady, I wonder why?

I tend to think of my Thursday mornings as play time. This project really was play time because next it was mud pies. I mean lots of messy, sticky fun with clay, sand and straw to create the oven itself. After much debate we decided on a bee hive design so as many people as possible could work on it. Of course we had to make sure it worked before handing it over so we had a launch part of pizza and garlic bread all perfectly cooked.
