From Clay to Solid Foundations

During the summer, brickmakers mold and dry thousands of bricks. You can even give them a hand by taking off your shoes and stomping water into the clay with your bare feet!

Come back in the autumn and see the bricks you helped make baked in a giant, wood-fired oven called a clamp. Keep your eyes out, too, for masons using these bricks in all sorts of projects around town.
