Art of Dutch oven cooking


Interactive cooking class. 5 participants will prepare and cook evening meal, learning authentic camp cooking in Dutch Ovens while another 75 participants watch and learn. This class takes about one hour a day and yields meal for about 100 participants. Very fast moving class to teach participants how to cook any dish without a modern kitchen.

Optional but encouraged: detailed drawings, CAD files/SketchUp documents, sketches, or other graphic illustrations of your creative concept.

Will it need power?


Does the piece incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is it climbable?


Have you completed any other large scale art projects? (In this media? Where and when? How did the project go? Do you have pictures or recordings?)

I have put these classes on with and without art grants at Flipside, Freezer Burn, and Un Broken Spring since 2016.

You may upload photos/recording of past projects here

What is your timeline detailing the planning, creation, installment, and removal of your project?

Thursday, Friday and Saturday 7pm to 9pm in my camp.

How much money do you need? (Up to $575) We are looking for a thorough itemized budget and the amount of grant money you are requesting.Please include a reasonably researched estimate of the cost of the materials you expect to need.

Cost per person for food and supplies is $4.00 per head and I will feed a minimum of 100 participants per day for three days. My cost to do this is about $1,200.00. Any help with an are grant is greatly appreciated.

Hard Dollars


Have you received funding from any other entity or regional for this piece previously? If so, who and how much?

Assuming a covid safe way: in 2022-2023 We would like the artists to give community workshops outside of Flipside. Do you think you have a workshop idea that could be provided to the community? If so, please tell us what it is.

I would love to put on camp cooking workshops at work weekends or any time we are together.

Assuming a covid safe way: We will be having the 2022 Ignition Philter fundraiser in Austin after the fall town hall (usually held in late September/ early October.) Would you be willing/able to bring the piece back for that event?
