Learn to make your own outdoor clay oven


Sorry this course is no longer running

Everyone should have a clay oven (just as they should have chickens!)

There is a growing interest in the use of clay ovens as an authentic green approach to outdoor cooking. They have been used for the last 2000 years across the world. Clay ovens are made from a mix of sand and clay on a brick base and are wood fired.

From May to September, Real Clay Ovens will be running one day courses at the Wandlebury Country Park near Cambridge, owned and managed by local charity, Cambridge Past Present & Future. You will be shown, hands on, how to build your own oven, how to bake bread in your oven and other foods to cook. The one day course includes a lunch (of pizza) cooked in a clay oven to experience the real cooking effect.

Ever since we built and used our first ovens we’ve been total converts – we know you’ll be the same!
