Build a Cob Oven at Next Barn Over Farm

Description Cob, also known as adobe, is a
traditional and versatile building material
made from clay, sand and straw. With it,
humans can easily and intuitively build
houses, stoves, ovens and more. In this
FULL DAY WORKSHOP we'll design and build
a permanent, highly efficient wood fired
outdoor baking oven at Next Barn Over
farm, using local clay and materials.
Starting with harvesting wild clay, we'll
then mix cob, build the foundation, oven,
and finally a roof.

Participants will be comfortable to make simple
cob structures on their own by the end of the day.
Bring enthusiasm, work clothes, and empty beer
bottles. Pot-luck lunch.

Workshop put on by Ape and Ape, Inc., a
valley cooperative offering on-site butchering and
instruction, cob building, and edible landscaping

$30-$60 sliding scale

    I will be in Maine at the Primitive Skills Gathering teaching wood bow making. I think they have one of these ovens there and make pizzas for lunch in it. Good luck with the project. Please take some pictures. Tom

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
