Furnishing the Landscape Hooke Park Oven

Furnishing the Landscape

Maeda Workshop in Hooke Park

Monday 1 – Saturday 6 July 2019

This workshop will bring together a cross section of students, tutors and family members of the AA.

The well-appreciated Pizza Oven built from a succession of previous workshops is now needs of TLC. The brief this summer is to renew the outdoor kitchen and dining area. Our challenge would be to use materials all to be found from the woodland such as forestry thinning, curved trunks, flint stone, clay and the earth. Not only the building materials. We may also search and gather mushrooms and other edible surplus of Hooke Park for a big feast to celebrate the completion.
