Intro to Fast Cob & Natural Finishing

August 13, 2020 ∞ 3:30 pm - August 17, 2020 ∞ 11:00 am


Last year, we introduced this Short Course and it was a great success. You’ll get a full sense of our Fast Cob technique (which allowed 1.5 people to build the 900 sq.ft. house in the photo in just 5 months!), and you’ll get to know how to finish buildings naturally, from base layer to finish layer and even whitewash. Everything we use is completely natural and everything you learn can be done anywhere on the planet. Of course, without prior building experience, a 3 day workshop will not give you everything you need to start building your home. But if you’re curious about Fast Cob or cob in general (but don’t want to exhaust yourself), this course is for you. Come and let your creative side have fun!

The cost of the 5 day Short Course workshops includes all meals (3 hot vegan/vegetarian meals prepared for you for each of the 3 full workshop days, plus a welcoming dinner and a good-bye breakfast on the final day), on-site camping with running potable water, hot showers, and hands-on instruction.

You can apply for any of our workshops by visiting https://cob.lasqueti.ca/workshops.html…simply read through our full descriptions, then scroll to the bottom of the webpage and fill in our quick and easy application form. You’ll receive an email confirming your application soon after with all the necessary information to complete your registration.  We only have 3 spots remaining for this workshop.

Fast Cob is a truly revolutionary technique: it can empower anyone (a 60 year old woman with bad knees has been cobbing like mad since her full week workshop last August) to build just about anything, without exhausting yourself, going into debt or spending years on a project. Any building up to 2000 sq.ft. can be built in one season with Fast Cob, and without machines or thousands of dollars of tools!
