Cob Oven builidng workshop - North Valley Road, Pelham


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 a permaculture homestead
on North Valley Road, in Pelham (10 min from Amherst, West),
using local clay and materials.

We'll mix cob, build the foundation, oven,
and finally a roof. If you'd like to be part
of the clay harvesting - let me know
when you RSVP (that will be ~8am 10/6
in Northampton)

Participants will be comfortable to make simple
cob structures on their own by the end of the day.
Bring enthusiasm, work clothes, and as many
empty beer bottles as you can. 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
services. More info @

$30-$60 sliding scale
