hands up cobbers!
I have been lucky to work with many wonderful people around the UK since starting in 2011.

1000s of children and adults at Primary and Secondary Schools, Community Gardens, Community Centres, Festivals, family homes, visitor centres, corporate days, education centres - all have seen the value of bringing my workshop to their site.
I see distance as no object.
Below is a selection of photos taken during school cob oven workshops, community oven workshops, festival oven builds, and commissions. Enjoy!
