Building Cob Walls During this part of the workshop we will learn how to build cob walls strong enough to set your roof on, and ‘learn by doing’ as we: – Choose materials and mix cob – Build free form with cob and using forms – Trim & shape walls using a cob saw.
Working with natural plasters is perhaps the most rewarding aspect of creating an earthen structure; the dessert after the main course of building with cob. We will explore and compare a variety of recipes.
