We thought this local class might be of interest to some of you;  contact 
Carrie if you would like to sign up or if you want more information.

Carrie Jennings will be holding a brick oven building course at her
farm in Eureka Township, north of Northfield May 4-6th. The class will
learn how to build an Alan Scott oven from oven-builder and rustic
bread baker Derek Luchese. Derek teaches the oven-building course at
the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, MN and is owner of Both
Hands Bread, South Gillies, ON. http://www.bothhandsbread.ca/

The course is offered at a significantly lower cost so that

- more folks can learn how to build ovens
- Carrie can get some help building her oven

Part of the course cost will go toward a donation to the Cannon
River Watershed Partnership

During the course you will actually build an oven to near-completion,
gaining experience with pouring the concrete hearth slab, setting the
firebricks for the hearth, and building an arched oven vault. All
materials will be provided; you just bring some gloves and dirty

If you or anyone you would know might like to take this fun course,
have them contact Carrie at:
