Cob Oven Workshop

Do you love wood-fired pizzas? Do you want to share pizza and home-made breads with your friends and family using an earthen oven you built yourself for very little money?

Join Ben Waldman of Urban Mud, Alisha Black-Mallon of Natural Genius, and Woodbine Ecology Center for a two day, intensive, hands-on introduction to Cob Ovens and the world of natural building.

What is Cob?

Cob is a mixed composite of sand, straw and clay. This highly sustainable building material can be used for wall systems, floors, benches, ovens, and in many more ways. Cob is a traditional building technique that is still used by many people in the world today.

What will I learn?

• The basic principles and ideas of the modern natural building movement.

• Identification of soils and materials for cob.

• How to properly mix, apply, and trim cob.

• The basic components of a structure.

• Basic principles of a wood-fired oven.

• Construction process of a wood-fired cob oven.

• Camping, Delicious Food, Great People And much more!

    Unfortunately I'm already heavily booked this weekend but am so interested in this topic. Will you hold it again? I'd love to get it on my calendar early!

      Hi Aleece,

      We are tentatively planning another workshop for August that will be in Park Hill, Denver. If you join the newsletter on Urban Mud you'll be the first to know!
