This Summer, we will be building a beautiful cob/ earth pizza oven at the TRIBE main camp, and we’d like to invite you to join us.

On this course, learn how to work with cob (earth and straw) – a traditional building material that has been used for centuries – to build a cob/ earth pizza oven

A good, sturdy base will be built ready for you; so you’ll learn how to lay and insulate the base, mix up the cob, create a form, and construct the walls of the oven.

Structure

There are several different stages to this process that take place at different times so this course will be set across 2 weekends.

Day 1 (1st Sunday) we will lay the insulating base, build the form, mix the cob and build the oven itself. This will be left to naturally dry for the next week.

On day 2 (2nd Sunday) we will start earlier at 9am to check the structure, empty the form, and start the small fires to cure the oven. You’ll learn about fire lighting too. Once the fires have been going a while, we will be able to cook a pizza in the oven to finish off the project.

Important Information

Hot & cold drinks & cake/biscuits with be provided.

On Day 1, a hearty fire-cooked soup and fresh sourdough bread will be provided to keep you going through the day.

On Day 2, please bring a pack lunch, although all being well, we’ll be having a pizza at the end of the day from our new pizza oven.

£120 for both days, including lunch & refreshments. Day lengths may vary depending on the progress we make; there are no set hours for this, simply a start time and however long it takes to complete the day’s activities.

Compost toilets and hand washing facilities are available by the main camp on site.

Only 8 places are available for this course.

The day will be jointly led by TRIBE founder Pete, and Alison, who has built several cob ovens over the years and holds a Masters in sustainable architecture/ eco-building.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
