We will cover a lot of material in 3 days! One focus will be work on our existing dining building: completing the top of a cob wall, applying earthen plasters on the interior, applying lime plasters on the exterior, and making/using clay paints. We will then begin construction on a lean-to that will be used for dishwashing and storage, using cob, straw bale, and slip-straw techniques. If time allows, we will construct a small living roof atop our work!

–        mixing cob by machine and by foot

–        building and sculpting with cob

–        installing straw bales, and preparing them for plaster

–        mixing and applying earthen plasters, lime plaster, and natural paints

–        installing a window

–        lunch discussions: “foundation/siting”, “roof options”

–        touring two natural, permitted home, plus our campus

Seven wholesome meals will be provided (Friday’s lunch through Sunday’s lunch). On either Friday or Saturday evening we will share a pizza dinner from our cob oven!
