During the summer and spring, brickmakers mold and dry thousands of bricks. Help out by taking off your shoes and stomping clay with your bare feet! In the fall, see the bricks you helped create bake in a giant, wood-fired oven. As you tour the town, keep an eye out for masons using these bricks on a variety of projects.
