Creative Cobbers Collective

  • Oct 19, 2008 · 12:00 PM
  • Jan and Lea's Adobe

Lea and Jan would like to invite you to a Creative Cobbers Collective on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19th at 12:00 noon

1. We have an earth bag and cob structure (about 15 feet in diameter). Lea named it Sanctuary,
2. We want it to have a fireplace (we had one,..see this ForumFCS
Soooo, we're trying to come up with a design that will be capable of a fire, and will also be open for hot rocks to accommodate a sweat.
I believe it has to do with draft and flow.
There is also some ground work for straw bale reconstruction, wall cobbing and ornamental design. Also, numerous stages of armatures for interior candelabras.

This project is ripe for ideas and solutions, and a fine sampler for a cobbers palette.
C'mon out and "get dirty". We'll make some hearty soup. Bring what you may to share.

meet-up fee of $5. will apply (this fee covers the cost of meet-up dues and some supplies)

From the North;
Drive South on I94. continue south onto I57 (forks at about 9500 south, end of Red Line)
exit at 127th St. (turn rt, West)
1 mile to Western (turn left. South) for 1/2 mi, to Vermont (Bank and Dunkin Donut at corner)
turn rt at Vermont West to California (4 blks) Right onto California
1 block to York and another right turn (East) The Forum is the 3rd building on the right.
Park, open door, exit vehicle, close door. Walk south. Stop thinking. Play on our new gym bars by the garden.

    Thank you so much for coming out everyone! It was a great success. We will be working next Sunday if anyone is interested in finishing the rocketstove and benches.

    really low key and fun.
    nice people.
    we're going to meet up next week and finish up the rocket stove bench, i can't wait to sit on it.
    the cob structure we're making the rocket stove in is really beautiful, total hobbit hut.
    I really liked the forum for creative learning, it had an old school vibe and it was just nice to be outside doing some physical labor.
