Hands-On Workshop for DIY Enthusiasts
The popularity of an outdoor wood fired oven has increased dramatically offering an alternative or adjunct to the traditional Aussie sausage and chop barbeque. Just the thought of a homemade pizza, scone, focaccia or roasted as eggplant and zucchini is enough to make the mouth water.

This could be yours!


The wood fired oven is becoming common, if not essential, in contemporary outdoor entertaining areas.

Alan Watt (your tutor) believes that the D.I.Y. enthusiast can create a simple, distinctive, individual and site-specific oven of their own. Alan can take the lack of knowledge of how and what to build out of the equation so that you can have fun creating your own wood fired oven.

The wood fired oven workshops are designed to show you how to soon have the freshly baked bread smell emitting from your backyard.

They said 'hands on'


By attending one of their workshops you will be involved in the construction of two ovens using different materials and building techniques. One oven will be made of conventional, high quality fire bricks and refractory castable cement [High-tech.] and the other from low-cost readily available materials such as clay sand and stone dust plus a few other common materials. [Low-tech.]
Believe it or not you will also be cooking in a simple wood fired oven which you will build during the course. The method of building a traditional brick domed oven will also be explained and the process demonstrated.
