Roman Kiln Building

June was a mad month - we ended up on 2 Home Ed camping trips but the girls favourite was the Roman Kiln weekend.

They started by walking through the local woods to identify and dig up clay,

they took it back to camp, washed it and started making their pots.

They built a stone and mud kiln, 

put their pots in, covered them in straw and popped more clay over the top of the kiln to seal it in. 

The adults had the job of keeping the kiln hot for 14 hours (but thankfully we were able to take it in shifts so we did get some sleep)

These were the results the next day : )
