The primary focus of this workshop is on tools to allow you to develop an independent, natural lifestyle. Your experience here can skill you enough to build yourself a cob cottage. Our Cob village is located in a breathtaking rain forest, we'll eat from the garden, compost our wastes, heat exclusively with Rocket Mass Heaters, drink from the creek, read the skies, and camp off grid together. Join us for an experience that will change your life.  In 9 intensive days, we’ll cover many aspects of techniques of building with cob.  In this expanded version 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 cottage  We will be working on existing cob structures during this workshop.  Our focus is to ensure that we discuss all aspects of the construction of a complete cob cottage.  In the past 20 years, Cob Cottage has taught these workshops all over the world.  Our alumni now live worldwide in beautiful cob houses that they have build at little cost.  They are snug against cold and cool in summer.  Most Natural Building instructors in North America were trained by us or by our trainees.
