Our Daily Bread Part 1

Saturday 20 May

See the Workshop report here

Bread is one of our oldest staples, a cultural cornerstone of western life, and, pre-sliced in a plastic bag, a symbol of our technological cleverness. This workshop will teach you how you can make bread in a world without Warburtons, just-in-time deliveries and big Sainsburys.

In part one of this workshop, local bushcraft expert Matt Cox will be teaching us how to make a cob oven, out of the simplest materials imagineable (one part clay to three parts gravel) so we can bake our own bread at The Clearing. This workshop will take all day. At the end of it, we should have a serviceable oven. See part two for how to bake the bread itself.
