Weekend Cob Workshop!

POSTPONED until September!

BUT: we will have a prepping work party Sat.@ 10am to work on the foundation & roof structure. This is a good opportunity to learn natural building skills hands-on. Join us!

And stay tuned as we make some good changes for September's workshop!

 

In Sept: Get your hands dirty and your imagination ready! We're building a natural cob oven and bench as a beautiful gathering space for the contributing community at Woodbine. Come learn the basic principles of cob-building and oven design, gaining skills and experience with the ability and confidence to build your own! We will incorporate glass bottles into the design as well. This is a one-night dorm or camping event with two day cob intensive hands-on training at the beautiful Woodbine Ecology Center.

This is a great opportunity for people wanting to build a backyard oven-- Yum!

      So we're postponing the workshop until Sept-- partly with the hopes of finding funds to help lower the cost. Meanwhile, we'll be work party prepping with the instructors on Sat @10 :)?

      Hi! We're trying to lower the costs and postpone the full workshop until September, but we'll still do a work party day Sat @ 10am if you're interested!

      Hey! The full workshop's been postponed until September, but we'll still be prepping with a work party this Sat 10am. Just bring your lunch, some water, and sun protection.... maybe a friend, too :)

    Hey all! I do feel sorry about the costs-- I had tried to upload the flyer, which spells that out clearer. In order to reduce the price-- which just cover our basic costs-- we created the buddy pricing option & do have some opportunities for work-trade, etc. We're just trying to balance everything out.

    It is a beautiful location and I am excited to learn the skills I need to one day build some awesome little place with cob!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
