Learn how to Build with Cob & Create Housing for people in Need.
We are gathering to help build a series of natural buildings to provide housing for the homeless and space for Volunteer in Your Community, Inc’s community food, gardening, and skill-building workshops.
In this 7 day Cob Workshop, will will build our first structure, a 12’x12′ cob cottage that will be used as a community center and workshop space.
Cob is an affordable, natural, and beautiful earthen building material that can be used to build homes, out buildings, garden walls, benches, and public sculptures. In this workshop you will learn basic skills in:
– Cob mixing techniques
– Cob walls
– Sculpture and decorative elements
– Roofing options and integration in cob wall systems
The goal of this workshop is to create a beautiful, functional building for Volunteer in Your Community Inc’s nonprofit programs. As such, we will be balancing participants’ educational goals and our host’s need to complete the building, so please expect to get dirty and work hard!
Tuition is very affordable, ax deductible, and includes workshops, vegetarian meals, and camping space.
