The Fundamentals of Fast Cob…Everything you need to get Building…Fast!

August 29, 2020 ∞ 3:30 pm - September 5, 2020 ∞ 11:00 am


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!

At a relaxed pace, we’ll learn and practice mixing and building with Fast Cob.  As the week progresses, you’ll gain the skills, confidence, and inspiration to build your own structures.  This year, we’ll complete the 200 sq.ft. wood shed – with a living roof.  In 2018, a workshop of 4 people built a 12′ high by 8′ wide wall…and that was only half of what we accomplished.

In between hands-on Fast Cob sessions, we’ll look at foundations, electrical, plumbing, floors, roofs, and general design.  You get everything you need to go off and start building on your own because we design every workshop around you and your needs!

The cost of the 8 day Fundamentals of Fast Cob workshops includes all meals (3 hot vegan/vegetarian meals prepared for you for each of the 6 full workshop days, plus a welcoming dinner and a good-bye breakfast on the final day), on-site camping, 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.    This workshop is sold out for 2020.  It will run again in 2021 during the last week of August/Summer/before the Labour Day holiday in Canada.
