Please join us to play with earth! In this work-party you will assist with building a decorative wood-fired cob oven and heated bench, in a dragon design using local natural and/or recycled materials.
-Last weekend was an oven success!! Our beautiful brick oven base, our thermal layer and cob layer were initiated in last weekends class, we will be reviewing the processes.
-We will be focusing on mixing/sculpting with cob! because sculpture is an amazing form of artistic expression and where better to express yourself then at a beautiful community farm!
-We will also be building our heated bench, rocket stove and sculpting around an old claw foot bathtub.
-We will be using recycled glass, ceramic tile and plate for decorative elements to the dragons body that will wrap around our bath tub bench and stove!
