Allie Maggio, in association with the Cob Cottage Company is holding a cob building workshop on Deck Family Farm from July 11th – 20th, 2014.
About the Instructors:
Allie Maggio is an instructor with the Cob Cottage Company and teaches building cob, including walls, arches, windows, rubble foundations, siting, and roofs.

There will be another instructor for this workshop (to be announced) and will also include staff with cob building experience.
What we will be building:
The project will consist of building a small structure in which you will learn all aspects of building your own home, including mixing cob, doors, and arches. The workshop will include discussions and short lectures but will consist mainly of physical work and hands-on experience. The focus of learning is how to use cob as a building material.
