The Course

Where it takes place

The courses are held at the Stable Rooms (Education Centre) and adjoining Paddock at Wandlebury.
This is a peaceful open green space up on the Magog Hills in the surroundings of the Wandlebury Country Park.
Each course consists of up to 8 people. Most of the course will be inside undercover but you will need to come prepared with old shoes and warm clothing for treading the clay and feeding the oven.
You cannot realistically make an oven in one day, it is a layered process that required drying in-between.
On site there are two working ovens which will be used for making bread and cooking.
Courses are from £95 pp.
