Though the office of Adult Ed. in Waterville, Maine, I'll be teaching some oven building classes. If you find that the classes are full this spring, perhaps you can take the class in the fall. Also, I'll be leading a workshop at the Kneading Conference this summer.
Oven workshop in Showhegan, Maine
Build a Wood-Fired Pizza/Bread Oven
If you've ever wanted to have a pizza oven in your backyard, then join us and learn how to build various types of woodfired pizza/bread ovens. No experience required. Participants will work with clay and brick and construct low-cost ovens that will make the very best pizzas and breads. We will also be assembling a portable brick oven that would be ideal for setting up at special events. Discussions include techniques for making pizzas, fl at breads, sour dough and no-knead breads. Unique sourdough starter shared with all in class. Everyone will get to bake in the instructor's oven and contribute to the pizza party at the end of class. One or two participants can take a mini earth oven home for an additional $35 fee, payable to the instructor.
