Fireplace and Oven Workshop At Eastfield Village

I spent the past week out at Eastfield Village for a 5 day workshop on building a traditional fireplace and beehive oven.

The class was full of Carpentry and Preservation Carpentry Students from the North Bennet Street School in Boston.

We had a great time learning the ins and outs of building a traditional fireplace.

Most of the students were new to masonry work, so the results are a testament to the teaching and experience that Don, Billy and John brought to the class.
