Earthen Oven Workshop this Spring


Come join us for Mud Hen East's first East Coast workshop led by John Corcoran.

This workshop will lead participants through all the stages of building an earthen wood-fired bread/pizza oven.

In this workshop we will begin with a discussion of the basic elements of building with earth. This will cover aspects of soil composition, suitability for construction, and methods for testing. Next, we will go through the steps of design and construction of our project, culminating in hands-on work as we mix local mud and actually construct the earthen oven.
Come prepared to get your hands - and everything else - muddy.

Workshop is at 225 Kidd Lane Tivoli New York 10AM-3PM, Saturday May 28th, lunch included. RSVP liza@lizamacrae.com

On June 11th we will meet again to fire up our oven and make pizza. Bring friends, drinks, pizza dough and/or toppings.

Cost of workshop: $35
