This is the most comprehensive cob course
available in North America.  In 9
intensive days, we’ll cover in depth all aspects of cob and the many techniques
of building with cob including arches, details, shelving, furniture and earthen
floors.  In this expanded vision of
our most popular program ever, we’ll take the ground from under your feet and
turn in into a versatile medium to sculpt a whole house.  You will learn construction of walls,
installation of doors and windows and we will discuss roofing, foundations,
siting, design and artistic details.  And you’ll leave confident enough to build a cob cottage of
your own!  Space is limited to
allow personalized hands on instruction. 

In the past 20 years, Cob Cottage has taught
these workshops all over the world. 
Our alumni now live in beautiful cob houses they have build at little
cost, snug against cold and cool in summer.  Most Natural Building instructors in North America were
trained by us or by our trainees. 
Cob Cottage founders Ianto and Linda have lived only in cob houses since
the nineteen-eighties. 

Please arrive on Friday between 3pm and 5pm.
Departure after Lunch on Sunday.
