Just So pizza oven

Clay oven made at the Whirligig at Rhode HallSpent a lovely day in the woods constructing a clay pizza oven with the good folk at Wild Rumpus and friends.

You can see what we got up to and who was involved by visiting their blog…and we published a photo album of all the clay loveliness too.

As well as offering opportunity for meaningful family engagement in the great outdoors, Wild Rumpus are responsible for a magnificent annual family arts festival called Just So that takes place 15, 16 & 17 August 2014 in Cheshire. We’ve been offering clay and muddy experiences on behalf of Just So for the past 3 years and our trip to Rode Hall each Summer is one we really look forward to.

Have a look at our Clay Babies video from last year’s festival.
