Oven built by Bubbles

Bubbles Nursery in Eastnor Herefordshire came and worked with apprentice Ethan to make an earth oven in the Pottery gardenCant quite believe apprentice Ethan has been with us for nearly a year but by the end of October he will have completed his Community Arts Apprenticeship.

As part of his training he’s been set monthly assignments by Creative Alliance based in Birmingham, one of which involved the design, planning and execution of a community project with a chosen group.

Bubbles Nursery based here in the village were keen to be involved and spent a lovely morning working with Ethan to build a bread oven in the Pottery garden.

Here’s a selection of photos documenting the build.
