Bread oven making

I covered the wonderful Nailstock in a blog entry on Saturday - a great event indeed - but didn't mention there much of the other exhibitions going on in the town...all sorts of crafts and more...one I wanted to highlight was the fun going on in the Somerfield carpark....

Making a bread oven - Sam Mukumba (see photos) talked onlookers through the process - and some helped mash the clay, straw and sand then mould the oven over wet sand...love it all...have wanted to build one for a long while - maybe later this year!

Also found this website on building ovens:

The Bread Oven was part of the Ruskin Mill Exhibition 'Transition' which runs for three weeks - and offers a great opportunity to dig deep in your closets for fragments and stories to contribute towards a growing collective creation through the familar lenses of clothing (Thu1st-Sat3rd May), shelter (Thu8th-Sat10th May) & food (Sun11th-Tue13th May) - there is also a wheel of ideas to be added to throughout the next three weeks so they ask folk to bring any leaflets or pictures you might have that spread the word about positive and proactive projects...
