Cob Oven with a Rocket Stove
10am-5pm, January 15-16, & 22, 2011
Taught by Scott Howard and friends. We will use heaters to stay warm while building next to the warm house. Learn how to construct a special kind of cob oven that uses a rocket stove for a cleaner burn and faster heating time. In the process, learn how to mix and apply cob, earth plasters, and earthen paints. Also learn the basics of rocket stove construction and baking with a traditional oven. We will complete the sculpture on the final day, one week after the first segment.
